just. how lazy are you guys?! I'm opening this thread for a year already... and I always take a week or so. (somebody opened it two threads back tho.) also, I'm not in a mood to compile all our WIPs in WIP pic,.. it kinda takes an hour )) but I compiled this )
Where'd you find that?
>>626243I bought amazon. com/Anatomy-Sculptors-Understanding-Human-Figure-ebook/dp/B07BL5F7MB/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=and then I sapped some of images on WIP image.. PS:I started to handpaint this fucker ) I just startedit. anu suggestions? ) and I know, hair lookslike shit...
I forgot to post this before leaving to study drawing. My free ecorche you can download: https://gumroad.com/rootin Sculpt Time-lapse: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2ZCv6wbaxs
>>626240>semi bold procrastinating
>>626255What's that thing on the right? Reading complexity analysis?
drew a concept and just put in the main forms and proportions.
>>626269why the fuck do you need a concept for a naked woman? where can you go out of "concept"?
>>626269anon...That isn't a 'concept'; it's just a poorly drawn fat woman. Why the hell are you drawing a reference sheet in a pose?
>>626272Exploring proportion. Finding what appeals to me. Digitally sculpting with symmetry is about as fulfilling as using Blender. I've been sculpting digitally for 3 years now. Shit's fucking boring. Unfulfilling. No challenge. It's cheating. You can't cheat a piece of paper, and a piece of charcoal. Art is fun again.
>>626245have you finished retopo, or you're vertex painting the sculpt?I like choosing my colors with https://color.adobe.com/create/color-wheel>>626275I see you are a man of culture too, but that is not how legs work.
>>626245For hair, the deeper the crease, the darker the colour. Simple faux ambient occlusion to give an illusion of depth. Hair also tends to be pretty shiny, almost like an anisotropic metal, so if you move on to highlights keep them surface level and as long streaks.
>>626276>I've been sculpting digitally for 3 years nowSure thing, Bryce-kun.
>>626240I'm thinking i'll make it mustard with navy feathers
Got the main forms in.
>>626289those arms are way too skinny
>>626285are you sure about those proportions?
Working on my anime model to be used in my game.Ill probably do the eyes first.Hairs are really hard.. I dont really have a good workflow for it.
>>626285>>626289Proportions are off, arms are way too think and so are the legs from the knee down
>>626300why all you niggas use model sheets for anime fucks sake just wing it
>>626305What do you mean just wing it?I do have a base model and made an anime character in 30 mins using berzier hairs
>>626277I've retopoed it, but I'm still polypainting Because I came up with a cool workflow, with matcap baker. It's zbrush plugin and you can bake exact look with matcap colors and polypaint as texture. That way I can bake several albeldos with different matcaps and same paint, that way you can experiment with skin texture. >>626281Yeah, agree about darker tones, but I'm doying it worh 'Mask Cavity' it's amaxing feature. Look it up if you don't know it BTW.

Look it up if you don't know it BTW.PS: I'll add this too, because I changed up few things some annons suggested.
Back, also I did quick polypaint of skin and keyshot.. I'm starting female character already BTW )
>>626309I wonder how baking matcap actually works given that matcaps rely on directional view, and are closer to shaders, than pre-painted textures. Like if you use a matcap with some intense rim light, how would the baker know which parts to paint/not paint.
>>626276>I've been sculpting digitally for 3 years now. Shit's fucking boring. Unfulfilling. No challenge. It's cheating.And yet you are barely at a beginner level, you cant even do a basic anatomical studyWhy do people who call something too easy usually suck at it?
>>626321i hope it's no 3D model.. it surely looks like a 2D model..
>>626331Never heard about flat shading, huh?
>>626312actually matcaps don't respont to lighting. they have prebaked light. when you bake color map(diffuse) with matcap baker, you'll get color map exactly how it is in zbrush. but i you bake just difuse(without matcap baket) it will bake only color, which is applied to the mesh, without matcap colors. also Matcap Baker, will bake color map, even if you have not applied any color by yourself, it will bake matcap color. but if you'll just create texture it will be just blank. Pic related. after baking Diffuse will look exactly like these. even if I remove polypaint.. PS: here is the link to plugin, and better explanation to what it is.. zbrushcentral.com/showthread.php?170886-MatCap-Baker!-unofficial-Information-Installation
>>626321>where do you work out?
Doing hairs. But im out for the day. I think im going to use b-curves instead of manually modelling the hair. Then just retopo.>>626379what do you mean anon?>>626331its from a 2d reference and as >>626338said its flat shading.
>>626381Forgot image. Im on phone now.
>>626385Hey m8 you seem to have forgotten your reference.
So what's the best way to select faces which are perpendicular to the camera? Like in this situation, I want to extrude the top most face, but I can't select it.
>>626388is that it mum, m8?
i've moved up from making obsolete media and am now attempting to make an obsolete computer
>>626276>I've been sculpting digitally for 3 years now. Shit's fucking boring. Unfulfilling. No challenge. It's cheating.makes >>626385you can not make hands and feet in 3 years without looking like this.. ... what more challenge do you want. the fact that hands/feet look like this, even at this(wip) stage means that you are struggling. and actually that sketch of yours is better than your sculpt.

Beginner reporting in
>>626407I put in the the landmarks, and the rough proportions of the hand. You can clearly see the radius, carpals, metacarpals, phalanges, etc. More interested in the body before I sculpt the hands. Study and practice for a couple thousand more hours, buddy before you open your mouth. lmfao
>>626428>Study and practice for a couple thousand more hours, buddy before you open your mouth. lmfao
>>626377What I meant was that matcap cheats e.g. highlight by wrapping the image based from which angle you see the model. I was wondering if the baker lets you choose angle, uses the viewport, or pre-calculates without user input. It's very important if someone wanted to get specific highlights from e.g. pic related.I'm asking because I'm 3d-coat user, and even thou it has option to bake matcaps, it is not reccomended to use. I hope you don't mind.
>>626440Actually in Zbrush matcaps don't work that way. only sone of cell shaded ones. https://cdnb.artstation.com/p/assets/images/images/007/935/639/large/giorgi-mikiashvili-screenshot003.jpg?1509455022I've used here that tech.
i've been working on this one for a while now. i did a sculpt and retopo, but right now i can't figure out how to do his mouth without things looking bad. also he's got big bunny ears that are meant to have fluff in them but i don't know what i'm going to do about that either. trying to figure out marvellous designer to do his clothes but i might just go with a shidy sculpt i have
Coming back to modeling after a long time of laziness. Any recommended tutorials to follow for making humans with proper topology?
>>626468i mostly just look at other people's models and copy, lmao. the polycount wiki is a good resource for that, but otherwise just trawl through sketchfab and look at what other people do
Not enough cute furry anime waifus in this thread. Please ignore missing nail materials.Jewellery rings / chains yay or nay? I'm gonna change them to beaded chains, make them thinner, and add more. Also should i make new hair? It seems kind of boring.
>>626475hey thats really goodi think you should keep the jewelry, it adds visual interest. if you have a better idea for hair and you dont have a deadline it's worth trying. also, how do you do your hair? i've wanted to try doing alpha textures/planes hair but could never figure out how. and, just out of curiousity, how long you been working on this, b?
>>626475are her nails turquoise?
>>626475Hey, I like you. Please add dick
>>626475Pretty good overall, jewellery is nice, makes it less bare. Main thoughts are: - Nipples went from subtle to in your face, a smaller ring would be less overpowering. - Arm to breast chains dont make much sense once she starts moving her arms, neck to breasts would be better imo. - Maybe have some jewelllery on the bottom half to balance it outAlso eyes lack a bit of depth in the iris/pupil region, they dont really stand out atm
Is it practical to want to try and pull the 3D models from a mobile game like Titanfall: Assault to try and 3D print? I want to use them in a upcoming Table Top RPG game i'm hosting and no one makes anything close.
>>626385>>626408>>626428fix your proportions, faggot
>>626475Pretty good. I dig the detail on the skin. The chain seems hazardous being the way it is, another Anon (>>626507) made a good suggestion. In regards to the hair, I find its start/hard lines create too much contrast with the softer forms of the body. Perhaps thicker hair/fewer strands would work better.
>>626488Hair is made with GMH 2.6Been working on it in my free time for the fuck of it for like a month with some breaks>>626490>>626475>Please ignore missing nail materials.>>626491Unlikely; I'm not into traps/futa, but maybe if it's worth my time one way or another.>>626507Are the nipples in your face because they're too pronounced now or because of the rings? I'm still undecided on if they're too detailed and I should find somewhere in between what it used to look like and does now.I was thinking the balance is kind of off between nipples and arms. I might go choker with bell, to nips, to bellybutton / waist, to thighs perhaps.>>626523I will probably end up creating thicker individual hair clumps and using an alpha to mask finer edges. Hopefully i won't get fucked so hard by work the next few weeks and will have more willpower to dump time into this.
So I have this rig I've been working on for the past 3 days.I need to make an IK for the feet and fingers. I really want to use custom bones for the face to clean it up. If anyone has a suggestions for IK rigs within blender (or just have questions about the rig). Let me know.
>>626491based>>626519that looks pretty trivial to box model, anon-kun>>626534>I'm not into traps/futawhat did he mean by this?>>626538that looks like it will be a real pain to weight the face to the bones. have you checked out rigify?
>>626540Oh its all weighted. hes done. Just working out the Ik now.
almost done losers ecksdee ¿mad?
>>626543Id be mad too if I wasted my time like this.
>>626543Sorry to put it like this, but do you perchance have any sort of mental disorder?
playing around with shaders and have mixed opinions about the black outline. Left has no outline, middle has it only on the face, and right has it throughout.
>>626551Uncultured Anon here, but my preference goes towards the rightmost.
>>626543itty bitty armsitty bitty legs
>>626534The level of detail on the nips seems good, it's more that the rings are big enough to almost outline the nipples, rather than being an add-on. I like the choker etc idea, and you could always add armbands and bangles if you feel the balance is off
This is my first full render, thoughts?
>>626475I for one dont like the jewelryRather see some sexy dress, or something that seems more natural and fuller, i went went with it i would go all out with moreAlso it wont mean you have to get rid of the degenerate lookJust like fedbac dies his stuff, sexy but with that made for the character look clothingCheck his older shit out, some of its gay as fuck but even it has that design beauty to itHe dosnt do those quick design anymore it seemsfydbac.deviantart.com/art/characo-sketch-169-622058421fydbac.deviantart.com/art/adopted-hatchling-35-171-615935187fydbac.deviantart.com/art/tailor-made-19-685322905fydbac.deviantart.com/art/characo-043-Cyriix-311897780fydbac.deviantart.com/art/characo-sketch-152-twigg-505181882fydbac.deviantart.com/art/characo-043-Cyriix-311897780
>>626567Too dark. Lift it up.Your filename makes me suspect you rendered to a PNG directly. You usually don't want this. Render to EXR. With EXR you can easily correct exposure levels without botching the image, for example.

>>626285>>626289is this what people are referring to when they use the phrase fivehead?
>>626540Yeah but I have no idea what i'm doing and have never worked with 3D anything. Am but simple model painter
>>626580>3d is cheating anywayDon't do it then, you imbecile.
>>626543I'm not gonna fetish shame you, I like big butts myself, but that is just a fat chicken.>>626580If 3d sculpting is cheating why do you not get good results?
>>6265803D is like a 2D except it has to look good at every angle.
>>626617the boobs are huge, I get it, it's your thing, but in that image they really look off.>>626616pic related>>626614your midriff looks like it was melted. Rib cage doesn't transition, it just disappears.You didn't show side view but it looks like the stomach is super flat as if you just selected the whole ring and tried to give it more hourglass shape.Not much collarbone there.I like your nipples.
>>626621what do u mean the rib cage doesn't transition?
>>626621The boobs look off probably because they aren't sagging enough for their size and look kinda floaty. >>626614I like the nipples too. Captured that puffy look pretty nicely. The waist seems a bit too thin though, even for exaggerated proportions. I'd like to see it more proportionate to the rest of the body.

So, /beg/ here. I'm having a hard time dealing with triangles, in the sense that I'm not sure when to use them or not.On one hand they look really cool, because they allow me to easily partition detail (see pic, for instance, where, were I not to have triangles there, I'd have a body with many more edge loops from earlier in the process), which makes everything so much more manageable in terms of keeping your mesh organized, and some places really seem made for triangles, as using quads there probably means they won't really be planar (for instance, the crotch and the corners of the mouth); but on the other hand, I know they deform poorly with sub surfacing, but I can't exactly understand how it happens yet. Are triangles (surface triangles, that aren't hidden), really that bad? Are there any resources that might help me understand why, if that's the case? To me it really seems silly to have to add detail to the whole mesh if you just want detail in one part of it.I'm also having a ton of trouble keeping my mesh clean and organized. I just lose track of my edge flow really fast, and it's really aggravating to try and play around with vertices to align them along an oddly slanted curve, and as a result, it's incredibly hard to keep smooth surfaces most times. Am I missing something here, or is this one of those things which I'll get used to?Also can someone please explain why if I'm in symmetry mode, 'f' sometimes frames only the selection side, and sometimes it frames both both sides? Is there a method to the madness?
>>626466This topology is fucking vomit. It looks like it came out of zremesher. Delete it and start over looking at reference next time.
>>626783>because they allow me to easily partition detail (see pic, for instance, where, were I not to have triangles there, I'd have a body with many more edge loops from earlier in the process)Use 5-poles.>Are triangles (surface triangles, that aren't hidden), really that bad?That depends on what you use them for. Keep them away from areas that see lots of deformation. If you have to use them, put them somewhere that won't see drastic deformation and/or will be hidden from view, such as the top of the skull. When subdivided they cause pinching.
>>626783To really understand the problem with triangles you need to try rigging and weight painting a model. You'll see that bad topology is devastating, no matter how much work you put into weight painting the results come out terrible.Also instead of doing what you're doing right there, consider zbrush or mudbox.
All done with my Chino!https://sketchfab.com/models/123191fc2dff438bb97a36d53d80637e
I'm just startin off, found out about SculptGL. Just havin fun and seein what I can do with it. I added more detail to the ears a little after this, but then my brush started actin out of control and I had to quit. It took two hours, ecch.
I guess I won't make it for the Wild West ArtStation challenge... Haven't touched my general store in a few weeks. This sucks so much. Anybody else involved in the challenge?
>>626825Save often and keep posting, anon boi
Retopoing chino nowso i can use it for my game
>>626379Fucking hell I spat my drink out
>>626859I dont undestand. Care to explain? Still lurking in the thread anyways.
>>626824Nice work, Anon. I am a bit troubled by the neck, isn't there a broken transition? Your Kotoha model has nice shadows there, in comparison.
Between projects right now so decided to brush up a little on my hard-surface jiu-jitsu. Subject matter wasn't important so settled on the neckbeard JO material of choice - a 'hand-held fire-armament device'. One of those things that the guys who post loads of pictures of that frog cartoon seem to really like? You've heard of 'em, I'm sure....1/3
>>626885Neck is detached from the head. I kind of forgot to fix it. Its just reversed normals.Going to fix it later once im done with the retopo mesh. That model you're talking about is 15k tris as i remember. Right now my retopo is like at 5k which i can use for a game.it says 15k because i still need the high poly mesh to bake to the low poly.
>>626553>>626636thanks for the feedback anons I appreciate it
>>626891>>626892>>626893Pretty slick, my guy. Your own design?

>>627014Nah, it's from the last Deus Ex game. I wouldn't have a clue where to begin when it comes to styling or concepting guns or other weapons.
>>627063his face kinda reminds me of thrawn.nice job overall
>>627063Very good. Hands are kinda on the HUGE side but I'm guessing this is in line with the overall style / visual language of the piece.Great work.
>>627063Nicely done, Commissanon. Gave up on the paint job? Either way, looking forward to the fem you have planned ;)
I feel pretty shitty compared to all you outstanding artists, but oh well. I’m tryin to improve my low poly texture game. It’s really bad ATM.
>>627064>>627065>>627066tnx guys! ) as face goes, your overall input made me change things (to better), as hands goes,I was gradually enlarging them, I kninda like capcom's character stile. it comes from their character ideology, overall character also have it'sinfluence aside from hands. I was gonna give up, because oof UVs, but then I rebmembered that I planned uvs. )) it has UVS besides these Hussar ropes (which had UVS, but somehow it got fucked up...) here's Commisar in his UV pajamas ) >>627120I don't thionk that they look bad, don't stop doying it and you'll be good in couple of months
>>627127>Capcom's character styleFighter games have huge hands and feet only because it makes it easier for the people who play the games to track the character's movementIt's a compromise.
>>627120Oh, this looks familiar. It's from that one video about hand-painting a low-poly well, isn't it?Some pointers:Lighting is too dramatic. Your highlights are just too bright and too white, making the entire thing look very plastic-y.Colours are a bit too vibrant. The roofing could use more brick red rather than plain red. The well itself could use a better colour choice, they're too blue at the moment. Having it be the same colour as the ground bricks would work better.Unless you haven't gotten to that stage, smudge and blend your colouring. It's too clearly splotchy. You can try skipping this step by starting off with a softer brush when you're layering colours.
>>627149Thanks, good tips.I don’t consider myself much of an artist, but I think I can get the han of this.You’re right, the video was my inspiration but I tried to do it without referencing the video during.
I'm learnding!But I need to chop it up in to more subtools, make the chest bigger and then somehow figure out a cape. I could probably add an armor collar like in the movie, but he never doesn't have his cape on in the miniseries, so im not sure whats under it
>>627127I think perhaps the hands are just a *little* too big. It's a stylized piece, sure - but the other proportions around the figure are not as exaggerated as they are on the hands - they just seem a tiny bit too much, especially when compared to the size of the feet - they're bigger than the guys boots.Yeah, just bring the hands down maybe 2 or 3% and you're good.
>>627138>>627208it's not only because of fighting games, it is also artstile. also I'm not trying to copy it BTW. maybe perspective is playing part. here's from slight different angle, if you guys think that it is too big, I'll tone it down a bit. thanks for CC BTW, it really helps.
>>626891Found time this weekend to finish the HP.1/4
>>627244looks sexy!! t'd be better if it had incision where the trigger is, now it looks like the trigger is fused with handle, also slightly bigger bumps and cuts on handle itself. other than that, this looks really sexy! BTW is this fusion?
>>627257Hey thanks.>>t'd be better if it had incision where the trigger is, There actually is a cut-out in the handle for the trigger to slide into, but BPR in Zbrush doesn't render booleans sometimes. But yeah, it's there. Well spotted, nonetheless.>>slightly bigger bumps and cuts on handle itselfI'm probably gonna tool around with some polishing methods to distinguish the panel edges from each other. >>BTW is this fusion?Pic related: these are all the parts done in Fusion....
>>627257>>627263And these are all the parts done in Max, plus a little sculpting / polishing / boolean work in Zbrush. I'm not a huge fan of the Fusion 360 mesh modelling tools.
>>627244Ok here it is properly polished. *Now* it's done.
>>627276way to many failures.. fix them..
I was thinking of doing some r34, these two took me about 9 hours to do. Still need to make mouths and then do bones and rig.

You're doing great
how do you guys like my blade runner-inspired city? any critique?
>>627510That's... actually decent. The first thing to note would be your compositing. Sharpness is way too strong to the point where it creates a white outline on nearly every object, even your border. You've also layered it incorrectly, seeing as some blue bloom leaks into the border. The border is, well, a border. It's supposed to go directly on top and frame out your scene. It shouldn't be subject to your compositing.As for the scene itself, it's passable at first glance, however closer inspection brings out quite a few flaws. Firstly, it's too open to be cyberpunky enough. You have a huge field out in the bottom right. There needs to be more clutter if you want to really capture that cyberpunkness. Then we have the logic of your scene. Judging by the foreground structures, this seems to be some kind of suburban commercial zone. Immediately, it stops making sense considering it just transitions to all the skyscrapers nearby. Throw in the Blade Runner cyberpunk angle, and it becomes even worse. The thing about that grade of scifi is that it portrays a dystopia where the world's running out of land space. Everything is extremely cluttered and tall. Your scene just remains too open and too short to convey that properly.If you need more reference, look at how China cities are like. 20 to 30-storey buildings with scaffolding and neon signs popping out from every free space. That should give you some idea of the clutter that you need to have.
>>627513>passable at first glance>the main flaw is it doesn't match my narrow view of a specific type of cyberpunkwell, okay, glad to know you think his scene looks nice at least
>>627515He specified Blade Runner and I responded accordingly.
>>627513Sharpening and the border thing are both stuff i can fix straight away, thanks! These are straight out of the renderer, it's just a weird issue with compositing. The open area is supposed to be a road, that's wet tarmac, although maybe that's not very clear. I'll try to add some more stuff, maybe a parked motorbike or something. The final point you may be right but I'm not sure how to resolve without re-doing the scene entirely which I'm reluctant to do. Anything in particular giving you that suburban feel that I can maybe remove? Thanks for the feedback though, it's nice to get something relatively positive on /3/ for once! I have some more shots on the go but they aren't quite as finished yet, would be interested in any thoughts you have. These are stills from a short film I'm making so some of them look better in motion but hopefully you get the idea.
>>627325>Working on a jungle scene>>627333>that's a jungleYou cannot seriously be this retarded?
>>627517Ah, okay, the scene makes more sense from other angles. >Anything in particular giving you that suburban feel that I can maybe remove? Well, the thing is that the suburban feel comes from there not being enough in the scene. So it's not to remove but rather to add. You could probably just stack more buildings on top of each other and hope the darkness occludes any errors. From the last image, either there are rendering errors (all the floaty bits), or you actually have buildings just one-storey tall which rarely are a thing.The top two shots are actually pretty nice, by the way. There's a bit of a toon-like feel to it that I can't really describe, not sure if that's what you're going for. This is just me nitpicking at this point, but you might wanna revise your signage choice. You have a ground level of Chinese neon boards, and even a Chinese street sign, which leads me to think that this is some district in China. But then you have that Network 23 sign that's very Western-looking and a Robocop ride advertisement for an amusement park in England? It just kinda throws off the sense of location....also, is that the ocean clipping through the road in the last two shots? Haha, just thought I'd point that out.

>>627635Fuckk that looks good.

I'm following grassetti's anatomy tutorialhow am I doing so far?
>>626824Looks awesome, anon. Is that an original character or a model of an existing character?
Practice piece. Portrait. Was looking for crits, if you will.
Does anyone know any good IK rigs for spines.
>>627806Were you going for terrifying demon child or normal human being?
>>627898Lol! The latter! What's wrong here?
>>627919It really depends on what age/race/gender they are. The most obvious parts are the overly long philtrum, the eyes being too large and the mouth looking kind of like they're pulling a duck face.
How's this for stylized textures? (going for a style grounded in reality but not something like PBR realistic), Never textured anything before last night.
>>627952I like the boxes, though they seem a little bit too pristine. The bins seem to lack enough detail, in comparison.
>>627953Could you explain further? I need all the help I can get.
>>627954The lighting needs to be improved.
>>627952First the boxes. They're serviceable for a background prop in a cluttered shot,, where you're not going to be able to distinguish much of them, but right now they look like brown cube primitives. Tell a story : is someone moving out ? is it inventory boxes in a supermarket ? is someone using them as a couch for some reason ? maybe they got kicked a bit when people transported them, maybe they have accumulated dust, maybe a mouse has eaten a hole somewhere, maybe someone was sloppy or over-generous when appying the tape, maybe they were branded for a certain company, ... Even pristine boxes have some dents and irregularities from when they were packagedNow onto the bins. Right now they look like superglue tube caps. Handles and a trashbag inside would probably be a good starting point. look at pictures of the real thing. The ridges are off in their proportions : usually you have some plain space at the top and bottom of the bin, and the the width ratio between ridge and protrusion is somethinglike 1/8 to 1/2. Once you're there, add some life to it, (again, tell a story) : dust, mud, stuff inside, etc.Don't be afraid of using photos as reference, to pick up on what would happen to the object and how it would look, even if you're going to transform it to fit your style
>>627927that's my son, anon.
>>627956Cheers for the advice, will adjust accordingly.
I'm kinda fucking around. I want to make a retro FPS with sprites, but instead of just having single frames I want to brake down my characters into body parts and construct the characters out of many individual sprites on a IK driven skeleton, kinda like the squad members in Terra Nova: Strike Force Centauri (if someone remembers that ancient game) but I'm a bit lost atm.
haven't done 3d in a while
Initial/rough paint job gone down. Will finish tomorrow.1/4
>>628269>>628268>>628267>>628266(before anyone says anything - I know the fibre-weave material is bullshit. It's just placeholder stuff right now)
>>628269round the trigger guard and its a portfolio piece
>>628266Did you use HardOps?Is it baked? How did you do it?I tried baking a HardOps-made gun some time ago, and the normals got fucked in all kinds of weird ways.
>>628298That environment is great, but that 'house' is really trash. The design is ugly as hell and it's too pristine, and completely out of place.
>>627635Did you use Marvelous Designer for the cloth?Or just cloth physics in Blender/Maya? How did you do the attach points and the stretching?
>>628318I sculpted it in zbrush my man
>>628329Really? HuhWell done, then.
>>628303I needed to tweak the lo-poly a little anyway so I actually added a couple edge-loops round the trigger guard, just for you. X>>628312No idea what HardOps is, so no. The more square-edged parts were all done in Fusion360, everything below that (the more rounded shapes eg. the handle) were done in 3DS Max, everything was then brought together in Zbrush and Dynameshed at stupid high resolution and I did a fair bit of polishing in there as well as some extra boolean stuff and a little sculpting to refine the shapes.Painting it up in Quixel now, nearly finished, will post final this afternoon.
>>628312>>I tried baking a HardOps-made gun some time ago, and the normals got fucked in all kinds of weird ways.Missed this part in my last reply; like I said I've never heard of HardOps but if it allows you to output an ObjectSpace normal map, you can convert that with HandPlane to a tangent space normal and it will probably fix whatever's wrong with the normals.Tangent space compatibility can be a headfuck sometimes.
Here’s some WIP cardboard boxes for a scene I’m working on.
>>628364those are actually really nice
Ok rather than finish it I decided to, y'know, completely redo the UV layout and baking again because OCD. Oh well... next weekend I guess.1/3
>>6283802/3 I wish Substance could handle type as well as NDO does.
>>628380>>628381>>62838210/10 would kill myself with
>>628397Ah... thanks, I guess? Banish such thoughts, anon.
>>628345>if it allows you to output an ObjectSpace normal map, you can convert that with HandPlane to a tangent space normalI know some of these words.I just did the baking in Substance Painter, with no special settings. It has always worked nicely for organic stuff, but fucked flat planes on my gun real hard.See: https://sketchfab.com/models/639e23220e3e4f7a83daeb44a37e758a
>>628422That looks like a problem on the low poly to me although it's pretty hard to see because you have gone absolutely nuts with all the post-processing effects. Anyway - make sure your low poly is all on one smoothing group. If exporting an .obj, make sure you're exporting norms and smoothing groups. If you're using FBX, make sure tangents and binormals is on, and smoothing groups. If you still can't get it to look right:1. bake just an object space normal map and export it.2. download handplane baker (free) - you only need to use the legacy baker.3. Tell it where to find your low-poly mesh, and object space normals 4. Pick tangent space normal as the output type5. Hit render, it converts the obj normal map into tangent space without all the bruising from your low poly. Use that in Substance and it should work. Bake all your other maps in substance as usual.
Nothing creative, just a byproduct of learning how to reduce render times with Mantra. I mean, what the heck, why should this render go to waste?
>>628424>>628422btw I think in Substance it's not called 'object space normals' it's called 'world space normals' - but it works exactly the same.
>>628425Here's a name for your image: "Unlimited Tea Pot Works"
Having spent pretty much half of this year struggling with XGen, and I came to the realization that I'm no good at this.
Wzp guys ) here's prommised female character ) I'm making Female Dark Eldar/Elf Hellion.. >Alo I'm fucking banned for 90 days.... and I don't even know why.. ban tells me that I'm using VPN or TOR but that's BS.. wtf is wrong with mods?!
>>628545Also, I'd be happy to hear from anatomy fags some CC ) >face and hair are placeholders!! Don't stress on these..
>>628424Hm, interesting. I'm away from my desktop at the moment, but I'll try that approach once I get home.Thanks!
>>628545There is too much to fix. Go to /ic/ download anatomy for sculptors. Go to Gumroad and get some of Eugene Folkin model. Try to copy what he is doing. Adam Skutt if your doing male anatomy. Then, just have to look at what he does in 3D and copy. Learn like the old masters. When I did clay sculpture I just copied brague plates 5-10 hours a day.
>>628545Also, please sculpt with a less shiny matcap.
>>628597>brague platesI googled that and, holy crap, they are good. Can you give more info on how to get quality source?
>>628597>>628606Answering myself.The book with the plates, in 600 dpi: https://archive.org/details/C.BargueDrawingCourseA methodology for working through them: http://www.davinciinitiative.org/uploads/3/8/6/4/3864305/bargueplate9-12.pdfAnd my gratitude to the Anon that mentioned this in the first place.
>>628533nice edit anon
>>628640sorry you need to retake a bread anatomy class or look up some examples
First time making sculpting for environment. I'm making a tile-able texture. I've only done 2 bricks so far, and I wanted to ask if it is going to look too repetitive with that level of detail?Please give any pointers and feedback.
>>628640What did you use for baking?
>>628654It depends on the scale of what you're texturing, as well as the variation between your bricks & amount of unique details.Right now your two bricks stand out a lot, because they're the only two that are sculpted, and are thus easy to pick out. But if you give all the bricks a similar treatment, the repetition won't be as noticeable.
>>628658Ok thank you, I guess I need to finish more bricks, and then see if I need to tone down the unique details. It may be too soon to say anything, because I just started but I find sculpting like that much easier than painting textures.
>>628597You could have just said "git gud", I know that I should use reference material.. I guess I have not explained what I'm doying, it's more of a creature than female.. Eldar are aliens, I want her to look wierd kinda, also they are very tall, slim and muscled. But i have gone too far maybe.
First time trying to take a crack at a decently detailed head, have no idea where to start with cutting eyeholes and how that's going to work.
>>628727and yes, i'm well aware i fucked up dimensions and angles.
>>628545You should just sculpt a human and then change her proportions, unless you are really going for pic related, but even minifigures, and video games don't go for that Eldar look. I think you need to decide if you are going for the more alien look, or try and making her more appealing by turning her into tall human with long muscles and elf face.>>628721That doesn't look like sculpting, so why all the triangles?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=im9XZf2C1s0
>>628731I have the triangles because I am sculpting, if only a little bit. I'm using Maya, and I'm switching between poly modelling tools to lay a baseline and create detail and the sculpting tools to shape the model and smooth it out. I have a few head assets on hand of which I'm using screenshots of for comparison/formation inspiration, but they're certainly not carrying me.Thanks for the quick response.
I'm using 3ds Max and V-Ray Next. I'm very new to this but playing around with the vray fur and megascans textures is pretty fun. I ended up making some disgusting thing.However, I can't get the hair shadows to show up on the vray fast SSS material. They show up fine on a regular vray mat. Anyone know why or what I could do?
I'm gonna call it done.1/3
>>628731As face goes I agree, as body goes.. I'll make some compromisses, The thing in Eldar is, that humans are always repulsed with their alienness, they should be wierd and strange from our perspective, but that's hard to explain to people ) Pic related: how does the hair look? Is it "cool" ?? )) Also some facial direction variants, but I think both suck.. now I'm starting new face.. > Oh And BTW, fuck the mod who banned me till september .. And blaming that I'm using VPN or TOR.. because I've never used neither, at least for years..
>>628740Oh god, why?
>>628749>>628750>>628751Cool stuff. what did you use engrave the letters?
>>628774Thanks. That was all done in NDO.
>>628773I need to learn v-ray and I was always intrigued by the "creature" textures on Megascans.
WIP. Getting near it but the hair particularly and a few other parts needs more work.
>>628795Second best girl. I love your work.>>628769>The thing in Eldar is, that humans are always repulsed with their aliennessIt wasn't always the case before certain lore retcons.by the way, I think that elves in divinity original sin are closer to what eldars are supposed to look like than most eldar fanarts I see on internet.
My progress. Does it look too repetitive so far? I think it kinda looks like it is made out of clay. It's supposed to be sandstone. I'm not sure if I should be adding more holes later. I was looking at many reference photos and sandstone comes in many varieties. Some of it gets chipped, others have many small holes from sand hitting it, others get cracks, and you can also get very polished ones.
>>628802That one brick stands out a lot. Might wanna resculpt it.
>>628667here u go anon
>>628802Any Feedback?Should I add more holes? I'm going to be hand painting it, but I also thought the tweaked shader to the right could be good to bake out.>>628807better?
>>628802>>628841anon the reason this looks so weird is you have rows of identical sizes but then none of the whole rows are the same sizeit looks weirdyou are better off having them all look more uniformly random
>>628844yeah, my plan was to have smaller bricks at the bottom and just tile the texture to sides. It doesn't work well when I change tiling thou. I think next time I am going to sculpt some bricks first, and then start placing them. Thanks for the feedback
Finally done my first character model. This was from a tutorial. Same character design from the tutorial with some minor artistic differences and several skill based differences. Hands are pretty fucked if you look close enough. Pictured is the model after I baked everything to a lower poly version of the model so I can upload it to my sketchfab once I finish texturing it, the tutorial doesn't cover baking or texturing so for that I am on my own, but thankfully the tutorial does end with rigging and weight painting. The later of which I tried to do myself before on a different model and got incredibly frustrated.Can't wait to start doing my own characters!
>>628841Sandstone is literally compressed sand so it needs to be a lot more grainy and porous. You can achieve that easily with a normal map though instead of sculpting to that level of detail and baking.
>>628820Coloured sheathes should be a uniform thickness. Does the black outer sheath only wrap the camera-facing side?>>628860Baking normals from high to low poly is quite straightforward. There are a ton of tutorials on YouTube.
>>628862Oh yeah, thank you, but I already did the baking. The model on the right is low poly with baked details. I'm so tired and probably not conveying my thoughts very well.
>>628799these look more like wood elves, from fantasy ) not eldar tho..have you seen dark eldar concepts from last codex? they look awesome, but kinda too ugly.. >>628795>>628797>>628798love your character man ) I'd slightly define musculature and bony landmarks on the model tho.
>>628866Yeah, I'm indeed planning to do more work on the body details, like defining and adding some skindentation effects.
>>628795>>628797>>628798>628798You still doing OPM stuff?Anyway work an anatomy definition, way too many forms are too soft making it feel less defined to the point the black contrast of the clothing is the only visual element you can focus on
>>628902The body is for now literally just in low poly with a dynamic subdiv, haven't began working on the details of it yet, so it's normal.
>>628866>have you seen dark eldar concepts from last codex? they look awesome, but kinda too ugly..No I haven't, but given how new Daemonettes compare to the old ones, I can imagine.By the way, Eldar minis have smaller proportions, than those from artworks in codex's, so I think many people prefer the mini designs when making fanart, even thou they are less eldary than intended.>>628861what about when textures are really small? I even looked at minecraft sandstone, but that's just too few pixels for me.
>>628920>what about when textures are really small? I even looked at minecraft sandstone, but that's just too few pixels for me.Well it ultimately depends on whether you're going for a realistic or a stylised look. I would probably avoid using Minecraft textures as a reference for any kind of work but that's just my opinion and you're welcome to disagree.
>>628922Stylised. I want to have a hand painted look, but also have normal maps and I'm not good at drawing, which is why I wanted to sculpt everything, generate normal map, and the edit the diffuse from curvature map by adding so gradients effect, and doing as little hand painting as possible. I agree that the minecraft textures are not good source of reference.
>>626313Ha, there is definitely a trend. In the few art courses I've taken, the loudest, cockiest guys always end up sucking horribly and have nothing to show for all their talk at the end of the semester
>>626404That is tight, anon
>>627226I dunno, the hands don't seem to big to me. Just doing a quick comparison on myself, my hands (when gloved) are about the same size as my boots.
>>628941>>628958And skindentation. A before after of my progress of the last few hours on DoS' body details.
>>628920MInis is kinda it's own thing, they were using very exaggerated proportions in minis. Huge heads, short everything, etc.., , but Now they are changing to more realistic proportions.. dark eldar are old models tho. Pic related: some progress ), does she still look like shit guys? :v >>628959I think you can do even better ) Btw, my character is also gonna be fetishy one ) but not with that much, but I also want to make pure BDSM shit, I'm just always doying other things..
>>628959>skindentation>no indentations where the clothes meet the skin except for at the legs
>>628968Eldared version., but kinda still meh.. Tomorrow I'll make body better..
>>628860And this bitch is done! I can finally start on doing my own character models. Wish me luck guys, I seriously need to improve on sculpting hands.
>>628983I assume your focus is on the modelling and sculpting process, but those materials really aren't doing you any favours. The grey default material looked better.
>>628983Cute, would suck his shota peen.
>>628990Oh agreed. I need to study other character models. Honestly just wanted to be done with this tutorial so I just made one color materials with some roughness differences. Only actual textures are on the hat and jacket. My lighting could have been better too, I could have also gone the extra step to offset all the meshes he is made of so I can at least give him a toon like outline. I could have even darkened up some of the details like the seams on his clothes but Honestly, I just wanted this be done with this guys so I can do the stuff I really want to do.Would you happen to know any guides for texturing / materials for stylized characters? I haven't bothered to look yet. I intend to look up stuff before I start my first character on my own tomorrow, but if you or anyone here has some info they are willing to share, it would be helpful and much appreciated.
>>629001There's a really good overview in an issue of 3D Artist from last year by an artist from Creative Assembly who gives a nice breakdown of a character from one of their war games. I'll see if I can find it. (You can download PDFs of 3D Artist and 3D World on Cgpeers btw)...
>>629001>>629008Here ya go. 1/7
>>628971Uh, she isn't made of blobs of meat, even with her tight clothes adapted for skindentation, I don't think we would see much of it considering she's fit.
>>629023He's talking about her tits, Anon.
>>629015Based. Not the anon who asked, but thank you for this.
>>629042No sweat. I figured a few people would get something out of it. X
Guess I'm near done with DoS' body and outfit, added some more skindentation effects, and added a few straps that were missing or undetailed. That leave finishing the whip and hair if I didn't forget anything else.
>>629055I really need to get better with zmodeler damn.
>>629055Also how do you get the butt cheeks to come together like that, always have issues with the two surfaces being too close
>>629062Use polygroups and topological?
Going for a generic sci-fi cop or soldier.Will only be a bust because I suck at hands and fingers.3D coat.
>>629055Damn I thought I was gay til I saw this
>>629066Don't worry, maybe you're still just bi.
Windows 3d viewer is actually very nice, but very limited in features
>>629065As a 3d coat user, I advice you to use pose and cut out tool with hard square alphas like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amSG32yd-ZYcombination of many primitives https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7BAQGYDUKRcand starting from the bust template. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5oQnOfM7Jo Basically get the hard, edgy forms first, and then start detailing with alphas.
>>629073Thanks.That is the bust template underneath.My intention is to simply blockout/sculpt basic forms in 3D coat.But I have been using that lasso (in the 2nd video) to make organic, more rounded cuts.Most of the work and refining, details, baking etc. will be done in modo.
Damn, why didn't I try bend curve earlier, it's a great tool to make strands of hair.
>>629086Isn’t it amazing? Such a game changer
I'm 3d modelling a girl. But I'm struggling connecting the arm to the torso. How does the arm connected look?
>>629069>>629091Glad that someone brought this up. I don't know if you have run into this issue, but I have had a hard time getting textures to show up in the 3D viewer. The easiest way I have done this is using Substance painter. If you already have your own textures, just import them and then when your ready to export, there is a GLTF export option that exports both a packed .GLB and a .GLFT with all the textures. Or of course make your textures in Substance Painter then export if you like.P.SThe windows viewer is a bit finicky with textures, I know for sure that it supports a single 4096x4096 per object in your scene, but even that seems finicky some times. Often I just reduce all my textures to something like 1024 for the 3D viewer since you can't zoom in too close anyway.
>>629100Thanks. I'll try that.It's definitely an elegant way to show off models to non-technical people, without much setup required.
>>629093follow the muscles of a real body for your edgeflow
>>629092Suddenly, making quality long hair seems way more feasible. This is gonna be such a massive help for Tatsumaki's hair, I was trying to see how I could manage the hair twist with curves, but bend curve makes that so easily.
Kinda good with the whip, that leaves mostly the hair left for the modeling.
>>629118Fuck yeah man, I wonder if you can do better than LESLyzerosix
Been working on this guy recently. My only experience in 3D was viz and product rendering for advertising back in college but I've always been interested in characters and more game stuff. This is the first character I've done on my own without constant looking at tutorials and stuff. C&C is very welcome.
>>629118All of the new deformers on the 3D gizmo are incredible, this might change how i do box modeling, shits insane man.
>>629180where is the penis?
>>629256Which else do you like besides bend curve?
