that's just autism
>>641137That's a real Madelaine Petsch photoshoot.Likely heavily post worked though.
>>641158---> the joke<--- you
>>641126Such advanced humor...You should be a comedian.
>>641172It's not meant to be a humor.
Same here. Sometimes I just stop in the middle of the street and take photos of some fucking puddles, mud, rocks, brick walls, pavements. Each time they're ment to be done in bitmap2texture and substance painter, but only one has gotten been fiddled with so far. Half a year and counting.
>>641192>>641192I thought you were doing "this render sucks" meme.. to bait people saying; "it is because of eyes, they can never do it right" or something like that..Jokes aside. I'm also doing same, of course. Also I'm looking at people, their clothes, etc.. in my childhood my art teacher told me, to look at everything and everyone and to try to memorize their clothes, textures, scales of objects compared to each other, postures of people, walk cycles, etc.. and that lesson stuck with me ever since . Even In a period when I was not doing art.
>>641126not so much textures but the thing I became interested in is the way how light behaves, especially when tricky like diffuse or scattered light and then wonder which renderer comes closest.
>>641197I wish I was able to tell apart the renderers or game engines. Maybe it will come with experience, but I don't know how others are doing it.
>watching dispersion of flowing water>looking at how light scatters underneath light-shadow boundaries of skin and various other objects>thinking about how perfectly soft/rounded edges are on things>wondering how many surface details could be faked with normals if I was suddenly in a game world>trying to work out the subdiv topology of various real world objects>admiring how quick, efficient and gorgeous real world global illumination isHonestly can't tell if 3D's ruining or enhancing the way I see the world.>>641199Between game engines and path-tracing engines is easy. Quick identifiers would include reflections (game engines are screen-space while path-tracers will reflect everything possible), shadow quality (path tracers do shadows of infinite detail for example), overall shader quality (path tracers can do a hell lot more materials, mostly proper organic materials like skin). The Nvidia RTX nonsense closes the gap for the first two, but until we see diffused subsurface scattering being performed real-time there's always going to be some identifiable divide between the two.Between path-tracing engines is a little more tricky, since ultimately they all function on the same set of equations to transport light around. The biggest difference between them is usually efficiency and speed. Visual differences will have to rely on your knowledge of the renderer's feature set. For example, Blender's very own Cycles renderer can't do realistic dispersion of light as well as caustics to any efficient degree. So if you come across a glass-heavy render and it's missing out those two, then you'll obviously know some blendlet made that.
Wonder why black people play random dance idles
>>641126this is what a noob 3d artist does.In 10 years you wont think about any of this anymore.Your skill will be instinctualyou will hate your job
>>641292>you will hate your joby though
>>641292You're confusing skill for being a wage cuck.It's not our fault you entered one of the worst fields instead of just leaving it as a glorious hobby master race.
>>641330Because the industry has a way of grinding people down and out.
>>641349Are you talking about all fields of 3D or just one particular? What about gamedev? I'm a member of some Discord groups with plenty of pros, and they don't seem to be so depressed about it. Only here am I reading horror stories regularly so I'm not sure anymore that it isn't just trolling.
>>641351VFX and Game Dev will make you hate 3d after 12 years. Unless you are a psychopath or some weirdo.
>>641360That's probably equally true of every cog-in-a-machine kind of job.
>>641126I do that and I don't even know how to model. My mind is locked on the extreme macro, and the various micros.Anything other than where I most truly am, it seems.
>>641126Doing 3D for almost 30 years here...but please anon, seek help...you sound like a total dork.
>>641722How can you NOT analyze your surroundings as a 3D artist? Being obsessed is a good thing.
>>641751This. For painters, photographers, and of course, 3D artists too... nature has always been a major source of inspiration.
>>641351Small companies and being on an indie team can be fantastic. It's working for a AAA studio as a low level artist (Which is the only work you're going to get in anything that high-end) is what sucks.Say hello to no creative freedom, terrible hours, terrible pay and no respect from your peers.Basically, don't work for a corporation and you'll be fine.
>>641751>>641757It comes naturally with my hobbies and my everyday life, I don't need to act like a dork or autist.I do photography, hiking, sports and bodybuilding, painting(in oil), woodwork and I mess around with old cars and motorcycles.
>>641153>Look at niggers and wonder why 3d artists would waste their time and talent sculpting/modeling. Maybe because they are forced to by Naughty Dog and Bioware?Checked 'n keked.OY VEY! Druckmann will deliver GOTY with TLoU2. Diversity and stronk woman!
