How long would it take my daughter to make this. She has zero skills (0) now.

She wiill have Blender only. 14 y.o.
>>
Slightly over 9000 hours seems like a good estimate to me.
>>
If she only wants to make the lootbox as a mesh it should be very doable. But given that she's 14 she probably wants to make a cool render with whacky effects and sweet reflections and thatll take some time to learn.

make her watch the anvil tutorial series by blenderguru, it has everything in it she will need for modelling and its pretty recent.

...same OP as >>625424?
What's with all the 14 year old girls trying to /3/? What's going on?

>blender

keep your distance
>>
Whats the hurry, she is 14. She has lots of free time probably so she could improve a lot in a short time. Blender is fine tool for beginners.
>>
why use a 3d program at the age of 14? is she gifted or something like that?

at that age she should socialize and study
>>

Stop spreading misinformation, Andrew.
>>
>>625709

everything she will need for modelling the lootbox*

I mean, you caught me! How will I recruit new brainless donutmakers now??
>>
This board is fucking awful

>>625714
Remember to hide/report shit threads.
A better /3/ starts with you.

is this satire? 14 is late
>>
>>625717
>implying reporting does anything
>>
>>625718
you won't be able to create jack at 14
kids at this age can barely oil paint
>>
>>625718

I think that kinda depends. If you're not a native english-speaking person then 3d stuff becomes avaiable a little later.

Also the attention span and patience for results on average isnt great at 14yrs.

id say 16-18 is a good age to start doing mesh.
>>
>>625726
if they're that age they will be uncontrollable
>>
pretty much she'd need to get decent at modeling, texturing, cycle node shit and rigging, the amount of time this would take depends on how much time she'd spend per day
>>
>>625721
Maybe eventually the're get tired of all the reports and just... shut down the entire board.
One can dream, right?
>>
>>625699
Probably a week if she has to learn how to unwrap, bake, and the basics behind PBR texturing. You should probably buy her a copy of Substance Painter. Makes the process way easier as opposed to using plugins in Photoshop or gimp.
>>
>>625739

A week isn't enough.

It's just a box anon. Most of this detail can be stamped on in the normal map if she doesn't want to bother with the pain of high poly modeling everything.

Before I forget, here's a bootleg version of overwatch's grunge brush alpha. They use this shit on everything to bring texture and variety into their materials, especially metal.

Blender, right?
>>
>>625780
did the denoiser artifacts give me away?
>>
>>625781
No, not this time.

It was the age-worn-plastic color. Cycles's renders can't but already come stale straight out of RAM.
>>
>>625782
if i switch to max will i get a qt gf?
>>
>>625783
Yes, but only as you keep your subscription active.
>>
>>625728
Nobody would be able to stop her
>>
>>625788
Ok mr.max
>>
>>625794
she just needs a better tseacher
>>
>>625706
what's wrong with starting at 14? that's when i started.
>>
>>625801
i am going to put this very plainly :
>>
have her start with painting paper mache sculptures. sculpting in real life really helps people transfer to digital medium.
>>
>>625803
Pourque?
>>
>>625699
step 1: open blender to default cube
step 2: handpaint textures
>>
>>625705
one actual real based human being on /3/
>>
>>625921
>based
Did you somehow skip the part where (s)he mentions Blender?
>>
all that time you invest in your little sweetheart won't stop her from getting fucked by thug tyrone
>>
>>625943
tyrone.. sup man, u black?
>>
>>625699

Blender? Why do you hate your daughter?
>>

STFU BLENDER IS THE BEST SOFTWARE EVER YOU DUMBASS STFU DONT INSULT IT BLENDER IS THE BEST PROGRAM EVER AND U CANT USIT BECAUSE U THINK ITS TOO HARD AND CRAP WELL STOP IT BECAUSE YOURE AN IDIOT

What's the 3D version of Poe's Law where it's impossible to parody the reactionary rants of a Blender user without it being impossible to distinguish from a genuine reactionary rant of a Blender user?
>>
>>626145
There is no need for a specific 3d version. Poe's law makes perfect sense in this case.
>...it is impossible to create a parody of extreme views so obviously exaggerated...
>>
>>625699
The model itself isn't super complex, I would have her watch some hard surface tutorials, especially hard surface for games, as game assets tend to be a bit lighter in geometry.

As for the materials, are you looking to work in blender to do a render or export to a game engine? Substance I think is prettymuch the industry standard right now for textures, but 3d coat and quixel also see use. You'll probably want to look up some tutorials on PBR materials

As for the lighting and effects, you should find out what you want to do for rendering. Are you doing a raytrace rendered still or is this for real time render in an engine like unreal?
>>
>>625699
With a competent and dedicated curriculum, if the goal is to simply replicate this reference and only this reference, and nothing else. 2 months at most. If not then maybe a year depending on how observant and resourceful she might be.
You should start her off with drawing. Preferably drawing things that she likes, and get her books about the fundamental principles of drawing so when she becomes curious she can open up the books and start learning in her own.
If she's happy with drawing then introduce 3d to her.

But in all honesty why the fuck are asking us this? Let her decide what she wants to do.
>>
>>625699
Do you have someone on hand who can help answer questions and show her how to use a 3d software? Or do you not know anyone who knows 3d? If you ha e someone who can show her how to use and navigate a 3d software and show the basics of modeling (extruding, cutting, pushing and pulling, the difference between a face,edge,vertex, and how to use them, how to unfold uvs, how smoothing works with holding edges for hard surface). If you know someone who can show her these things, it will take the journey to that loot box from months to maybe weeks.

If she has to figure it out by video alone, it will take much longer, but maybe also teach some self reliance, as having to figure something out via Google and tut videos is a very common thing in the industry
>>
she should be doing mocap and kinect body scans at that age

anything else is wasted potential
>>
>>626238
Get out of this board.
