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.
>>625699...same OP as >>625424?What's with all the 14 year old girls trying to /3/? What's going on?
>>625699>blenderkeep 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
>>625701>it has everything in it she will need for modelling and its pretty recent.Stop spreading misinformation, Andrew.
>>625709everything 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
>>625714Remember to hide/report shit threads.A better /3/ starts with you.
>>625706>why use a 3d program at the age of 14? is she gifted or something like that?is this satire? 14 is late
>>625717>implying reporting does anything
>>625718you won't be able to create jack at 14kids at this age can barely oil paint
>>625718I 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.
>>625726if 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
>>625721Maybe eventually the're get tired of all the reports and just... shut down the entire board.One can dream, right?
>>625699Probably 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.
>>625739A week isn't enough.
>>625743It'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.
>>625699please love me, father
>>625780did the denoiser artifacts give me away?
>>625781No, not this time.It was the age-worn-plastic color. Cycles's renders can't but already come stale straight out of RAM.
>>625782if i switch to max will i get a qt gf?
>>625783Yes, but only as you keep your subscription active.
>>625728Nobody would be able to stop her
>>625794she just needs a better tseacher
>>625706what's wrong with starting at 14? that's when i started.
>>625801i 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.
>>625699step 1: open blender to default cubestep 2: handpaint textures
>>625705one actual real based human being on /3/
>>625921>basedDid 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
>>625943tyrone.. sup man, u black?
>>625699Blender? Why do you hate your daughter?
>>626014STFU 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
>>626087What'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?
>>626145There 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...
>>625699The 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 materialsAs 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?
>>625699With 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.
>>625699Do 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 ageanything else is wasted potential
>>626238Get out of this board.
