How long would an employer expect you to work on an individual model? pic related, how long should it take to model for a professional?
>>661279probably like a week
>>661280How many hours per day? 7 day or 5 day week?
>>6612815 days a week obviously unless you're a freelancer or something. The time they expect you to complete models would depend on the studio and whether it's for a film/game/commercial
>>6612791 month for a student about 2 weeks professionally. According to my zbrush professor anyways.
>>66127940 hours, then you spend the weekend pissed off because the higher ups decided to cut that character due to nonsense reasons.>>661307What is that, 2 days of sculpting 8 days of retopo? I'm kidding, of course.
are we talking about designing it too? because i take forever deciding on how i'd want certain armor pieces to look.
>>661314nopein a professional environment unless you're __the__ character artist you're usually working off whatever the concept bros fling at you
>>661315oh then that'd take no time for me. i kinda wish i could learn more about concept design. how do they pop so much shit out so quickly?
>>661316Same way you'd pop out a model in a short amount of time: skill, understanding, and someone breathing down your neck telling you to meet your deadlines. And a little bit of cheating because what matters is not creating the new Mona Lisa but a concept.
Based on extensive research from watching anime, the game studio doesn't even require you to know any 3D software when you're first hired. They just give you the software manual which you study for a few days and then you are immediately able to model, texture and rig game characters at a professional level of quality.
>>661320Ah I see, out the get a job in the market then!
>>661281the work hours of a 3d artist is 5-6 days a week anywhere from 8-12 hours a day
>>661339*laughs in European*
>>661279A day => 10 hours. Anyone saying a week is slow. Just need to not be lazy and be smart.
I'd say around 2 months of 5 day weeks. It's not always about doing things as fast as possible, quality takes longer.
>>6612795 full work days is what i would say, maybe 10 if it was supposed to be really clean or if i tried different things.so 1 to 2 weeks, probably inbtween, lets say 7 work daysthe other anon is right, a month for an amateur doing it part time is about rightproblem is that in production usually you do multiple variations or changes, so things can drag out>>661339who the fuck work 12h a day as a norm, even my medium sized studio has crunch but it it happens once a year or two years when a project is wrapping up since somehow something always breaks 2 weeks from release>>661423if i said 2 months where i work i would be out the job, we get 2 months for main characters including different variations or complex clothing, skin pore level detail and fucking retopo bake and basic texturing
Art director here. Depends of the model but about a week (5days) 8 hours/day. No shading no texture.
>>6612792 hole secunts
>>661279bulgarov does one in 4 hours or less
when making a new game i find it imporant to put thw pressure on my 3d modelers. for a basic game with 6 main characters and say 〜50 other human charcers you have 1 month for the 6 mains and another month for the other 50. for a team of 1. monsthr designs is a similar thing, although the number of differen bckground monsters is way lower.
>>661279I don't get the armor design. How is he supposed to move his arms up?
>>661320>They just give you the software manual which you study for a few days and then you are immediately able to model, texture and rig game characters at a professional level of quality.if only it were that easy.
>>661279>>661451I'd also say it depends on whether you have a reference or not, if you know exactly what you are making, like perhaps a variation of an existing model might take a few hours, while something high detailed for like a render but with little to no reference could Definitely take up to 10 days for sure. Also if character design is like your specialty in a large studio, or if you are more of a jack of all trades that works on everything would change it too. Also depends on if you are doing texturing or not too which I'm assuming you are also including.
>>661279The high-res sculpture takes at least a week depending on complexity. Usually 2-3 weeks. That's just the sculpture. Then you gotta make a lowpoly version. Then bake everything. If you're a character artist you might even texture it, using a library of stuff from the texture people. If it's a small company you'll have to do it all yourself. So you're talking a month, at least, for a high-quality player character. Overwatch skins take a month and that's with the characters already designed, modeled, and rigged. You're just making a costume for them. It's probably less time for a non sci-fi design. Just a dude in army clothes or something would probably take a third or half of the time.
>>666083he doesent need to
>>666083The armor covering his delts are made out of foam, he's not actually mech-ninja but a LARP'r.
its almost as if you took the crysis suit and made it worse
>>666771That is Gray Fox anon, a character from the 1998 video game Metal Gear Solid .Crysis (2007) clearly stole/borrowed a lot from Gray Fox since his image was well known at the time. But Gray Fox too is a derivative design stolen/borrowed/inspired, in large part I believe from the 1987 work 'Bubblegum Crisis', which in turn derived it's design from even earlier works.No matter what suit-designs like this will all end up similar because they place mechanical panelization ontop of human muscle groups.
>>661320I wish I was the cat
>>665889Vitaly is an extreme outlier. No one is even close to him in terms of efficency.
>>665889>>667266He's that fast? Perhaps he should slow down and think things through then. His work is impressive in terms of fidelity but most of his surfaces are unappealing and stressed, like them bayformers, the designs are lost in the details.That guy could probably make some really memorable things if he cut back on the kitbashing.
>>661279the bulge needs to be bigger
>>661279For a character model? Up to 2-3 weeks. It depends on the level of topology, rigging for animations, and so on.Something like a pet that isn't as detailed, like a week.If you're talking just the model? Lmao maybe 2 days. Do studios even hire people who JUST do models? In theory it might be better to have someone who is good at unwrapping do unwrapping, and good at rigging do rigging, but the problem is that if you suck at unwrapping and rigging then you wind up making really shitty topo.
>>661320everything in this is so, sooo wrong
>>668372not him, but i'm not impressed by generic bashed boolean paneled sci-fi shit either
