My first face ever after starting up 3D modelling one and half week ago, is the topology ok for low tier animation or did i i fuck up somewhere
>>577102you fucked up somewhere.google a "face topology" picture and rip it off.
>>577137It's a very low poly head, the topology is more or less correct. Just fix that damn nose.
>>577772Also the cheeks looks like they're sucking on something
Don't create organic characters box modeling. Sculpt them and retopologize.Box modeling organic characters is an archaic practice that you really should snap out of as soon as possible, because it will only hold you back.Download Sculptris, which is free, or buy/pirate Zbrush, which is the industry standard for character design.
>>577782Yeah I'd say box modeling is only for prop and man made objects. Tor Frick is a good example. If you want to even create trees, roots, caves or rock formations even I'd go with sculpting. If it's rocks and caves maybe doing a basic polygon model and then bringing it in to zbrush and fleshing it out
>>577782there is nothing wrong with modeling organicsthis was the way of life 20 years ago
>>577782Modelers that can't draw use sculpting as a crutch. If you can draw, you should be able to draw your character in a few orthographic views and box model it from that saving you from the tedious retopo process. Only use sculpting if you want to make something with a noisy or complex texture or something that can't really be illustrated in orthographic drawings.
>>577102Topo is generally ok. Might want to use image ref for your nose though. Looks like someone punched him hard.
>>577859You have no idea and should not give advice to anyone, have a good day.
>>577949>I can't draw and use sculpting as a crutchTruth is you'll waste time re proportioning your sculpture when you could've just drawn it with correct proportions in the first place and box modeled from that.
>>577962You're wasting time convincing people that you are an idiot who doesn't know shit with every post you do.
>>577962I understand what you are saying here but it's not black and white. Sometimes if I'm working on a personal project I find it really good to just get in Zbrush and push around the clay until I find something I like. It gives me a much better view of all my characters dimensions from the get go and retopology isn't a big deal when you know what you are doing. I find this a lot faster than working from image planes and box/edge modelling.
>>577859Uh, I draw references AND sculpt, and most people using Zbrush overlap more with artistic skill than the technical skill needed for box modeling. At best, box modeling is a tedious and unintuitive way of modeling organic things, and at worst, it might compromise your character/object's design. It is much better to have a solid 3D character design to project a new topology on to than having the box modeling technique decide how faithful the 3D model will be.>>577856> this was the way of life 20 years ago> 20 years ago
The topology is okay but must be shaped up better.As far as box modeling vs sculpting.It depends on if you are going for realism or stylized.If you are going for realism you should use material based textures, then you should sculpt your head, then retopologize for realism, then bake textures and place on low topology head.If you are going to hand paint your textures then you can box model your head.Sculpting will give a more realistic head.Box-modeling will give a more stylized topology and head.Both can be hand painted and both can use materials.
>>577849box modelling is good for certain aesthetics too thoughI've been working on characters for a JSRF spiritual successor and box modelling suits the angular, medium-poly aesthetic we're going for better than sculpting would
