Beginner here. If want to imitate this style would it be better to poly model this in Maya or to sculpt in zbrush?
>>616258Max/zbrusher here. OP model is clearly a boxmodel.Since i began with Zbrush, my models are finished faster, but they started to lack the sharpness typical from boxmodels. That´s because zremesh removes overall details from the model, rounding most shapes in certain key areas - some guys in here frown from that, bad.The tradeoff is speed versus quality: the zbrush model will look a bit different, but will come out faster. A whole week faster.
>>616258Hey, Skuddbutt shared the assets of this model. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B8jP3gcTv-ewc2FwM3phcVVwaHMThere are different versions of the project as it progressed. You may find them educational.
>>616262>That´s because zremesh removes overall details from the modelCan't you return most of the detail by using the ProjectAll function?
>>616258How do her Chucks stay on without laces? Is that a seldom talked about vampire power. You would think it would come up during recruitment.So I get to stay up all night, I have nearly irresistible sexual magnetism, I can turn into a bat, if I don't feel like outright murdering people I can stop short and turn them into my minions, and I never have to worry about anyone tagging me in an unflattering photo on Facebook? Hmmm... I dunno, I'm still on the fence.Did I mention you'll have the ability to wear shoes without laces and not have them fall off your feet?Okay, sold. Suck me.
>>616281You forgot the part where you become Adam Sandler's sex toy.>>616258There's no shortcuts, you're going to have to learn some of everything (in fact a lot of everything) so stop wasting time and hit the tutorials (preferably pirated paid tutorials). CGpersia, CGpeers, and a couple places on youtube
>>616282>You forgot the part where you become Adam Sandler's sex toy.You assume I am not already Adam Sandler's sex toy already. You don't know me, Anon.
>>616282I already am currently watching tutorials on both Zbrush and Maya, and while they are helpful for learning the basics, they don't cover everything.That's why I'm asking for your informed opinion on what tool you think is best for this job and why.
>>616289What I'm saying is if you had some experience with box modeling or sculpting, you'd already know the answer to your tremendously simple question.But you're wasting precious time on 4chan for "informed opinions" instead of learning for yourself. And no, someone telling you an answer like "Sculpting for organic, box modeling for hard surface" or "It depends on your skill and preference, some people do everything in Zbrush" or "People who have been box modeling since before Zbrush can subdiv model basic organic forms extremely quickly, while adding large details extremely quickly and crisply, with only a detail pass needed in Zbrush" aren't useful.Why aren't those answers useful? Because you don't actually have the experience to utilize any of them. And you'll only get that experience by plugging away at tutorials, videos, books, lecture series, streams from good artists, and so on.
>>616296You do realize you can start a thread and watch tutorials at the same time? Shocking, I know.
>>616262Wow you are wrong.Duplicate model, z remesh, project allAll detail is returned.
>>616303>>616266Projected meshes are as heavy as their sculpted counterparts. The difference is that, while inside the lowest subdivision, you can create displacement and normal maps to add details with this, but in the animation software normal mapping usually ruins the model (it was primarily made for game engines). Still, you will have to adjust the model in Max/Maya/etc for errors like rat nests, open polys, duplicated faces and more, so this is when you boxmodel the face details necessary for the animations. You will lose some uvw mapping doing this, so throwing the model back and forth to Zbrush and re-repeating steps is needed to finish the process, since it will be some time until Zbrush gets a real keyframed animation render module.
>>616390No just stop talking please, you don’t know how to use zbrush go back and watch a beginners course on projecting
>>616390Jesus christ I bet this guy thinks he's smart.
>>616258Fun fact, her pussy is visible from behind in the second picture from the top right.
>>616409>>616412agree with this two... you don't know how to use zbrush. I can see it on your mesh.>>616715our works are like our names here.. we don't post on anonymus board to make ourselves known
>>616541it's not a pussy you dummy, it's a tigh
>>616733What he meant to say is that if you where to look at her from behind in that position the model has a detailed vagina.
Managed to save this tutorial of his on shading before his Tumblr got taken down. Kind of far down the line for you OP but I've found it pretty useful. http://kichizone.tumblr.com/post/157007333878/how-i-shade-my-characters
>>616777Thanks for sharing. Into the Web Archive it goes.
>>616731you need to be 18 to post here, fuck off kid
When will the Lapis animation be released?
