Is it possible to trace an image and model it in Blender? If so, i wanna learn how to do it.
enable background images and go to wireframe mode
no, using 2d pictures as reference for 3d models is impossible. nobody ever does it.
I think OP means tracing picrel, not standard 2d reference pictures. impossibru in brendarthere is a japanese program that can do this, though
>>595322Anime figurine maker guys sorta do this. With real clay and stuff. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qC6V0eKjhL4
>>595333I'm talking about 3d modelling based off an image like Shoes or anything, and you just linked a video that had nothing to do with the thread whatsoever.
>>595347The thread is retarded garbage and should be purged. The author of the thread should be euthanized, his remains disposed of, and his family fined a significant fee.
>>595351This poster should be put onto therapy for people with anger management issues.
>>595311>inkscape>open image>trace bitmap>save as svg file format>import svg into blenderand your model is complete with shit topology.
here you go >>595398
>>595398How feasible is it to retopology something like that in a program like Zbrush?
>>595442you can get better results.but it's still shitty.>>595759it's possible but a fucking pain.
I don't think it's possible to generate a 3d model off a 2d image unless you have some program which works calibrated to specific shadow/shading based calculations, but for that you would need real pictures of an object with very specific lighting conditions and not drawings
>>595311Learn to draw. Understand basic shapes. Its easier to do it the long way then to try and find a short cut.
>>595442>>595785I don't understand the point of this? It *looks* like there's some height information but it'll look awful regardless of what you do with it.
Look up "camera matching".Sadly, it can only be used for props and environments. For characters, you've got two choices: either modeling them in T-pose the proper way, or carving them out of a volume like a traditional sculptor (which means you won't be able to pose it afterwards). Either technique requires good knowledge of anatomy and sculpting, at which point you'll find you won't really need to trace an image.
>>595311Just redraw the character in t-pose and work from there.
>>595311>>596119This, and if you can't draw find an artist who can and commission them. Keep and eye out for somebody with solid anatomy, even when they are just sketching lose stuff. Everything else is secondary to that. Also talk to them an make sure they are aware of your needs; i.e. orthographic front/side view, with proportional consistence.

>>598646well yeah, everyone here can (AND SHOULD) make 3d models based on references, but what these guys are after is software that generates a 3d model based on a picture. Even ill fitted pictures which are abbreviated illustrations like the OP.
>>595311You'd be better off drawing T pose for the character and using it as reference to model the character, then using bones to make it pose like your image using it as a reference this time
>>595324>impossibru in brendarwrong. Brendar is open source and extendable. Whatever fancy algorithm found in your overpriced environment can be replicated and even improved in Blender. Just because you can't do it doesn't mean it can't be done. Think before you post.
You mean like Live 2d? I don't think that fuctionality is possible in Blender, but there are similar programs that can do so.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xg40RzBIqTY
>>595311Most anons here are pretty vague with their suggestions and insults, but basically: NoIf you want to make a cartoon/anime character in blender based on a drawing, it would be best to draw the character yourself in a front and possibly side view. Then you "trace" those front and side view in blender to make a 3d model, like >>598646Then you can rig the character and pose it like in the original sketch and then tweak it here and there to make the proportions etc. just like the originalthat's how it usually goes
