Post cool low poly models or just your own work.
Do you think the dithering on this one is excessive? It's not the gif compression.

Depends on what you want from it.
It fits the style so I think it's all good.

>low poly
>has texture map size 4 times it's level of detail.
>>
>>688060
Yeah I've also been trying to figure this out. I'm new to 3d in general though. How do I get the UVmap to match, say, 64x64 exactly?
>>
>>688090
UV mappings are texture-size agnostic. If you want pixel-perfect alignment, you need to tell your DCC software that the map is intended to be used with a 64x64 texture, for example. Ideally it wouldn't then let you put vertices out of alignment with pixels.

If your software can't do that, just load a 64x64 grid texture and use it as a guide for vertex placement.

What do you mean, be more precise.
You want a low resolution render with aliased edges? Use a tiny render resolution. Turn down the width value for the filter type. (Film tab in render settings)
If you want shitty looking textures change the interpolation to nearest directly on the image texture node (node editor).

UV mapping. One of the most tedious, artistically void, and less skill-intensive areas of 3D content creation. He must be an insufferable idiot indeed to brag about that. But at least he's not using Blender.

Not the dude with the hilarious reaction image but it's a mixture of both. There is a unseemly deference to taking all the strangest qualities of early 2000's baking practices combining it with western toon anatomy and then having the fucking nuts to give it graduated shadowing that just has always rubbed me wrong. It's a look, sure-- but it's kind of fucking gay.

i think it looks cute, but texture wise maybe somethinf better COULD be done. would simple cel shading have been better?

it looks fine, it's just autism. a bunch of mobile games use art like this so people develop this pavlovian response where they have to shit on it by default to prove to everyone that they're true gamers that only play serious games and not kid stuff on their phone. ignore the gaymurr identity nonsense and it's a perfectly fine artstyle that's appropriate in many situations. not every lowpoly thing has to be some software quake brown pixel soup.

Funny, someone else suggested that and I did get the result I wanted but the solution is so simple it sounds like a band-aid fix.

We're using dynamic lights in this game, but in theory it should be possible to paint an entire scene and not use any "real" light sources at all, like in some old PS1 games.
Here's an old experiment I did with that

>>693721
You can probably mix and match the painted vertex colors with realtime lighting as well in certain scenarios too. Feel free to link the game. It looks good.
>>
>>693722
I have made a few models as commissions for a guy who does that, but I feel it looks a bit washed out and "wrong". Guess it just feel it's strange because it doesn't look exactly like old games used to.
I think it can look a bit interesting with bloom (and no light sources), though:

Are low poly rigs supposed to be animated with a traditional weight painted skeleton or do I need to do other shit to make it work?

You're doing okay but these all feel very similar as their bodies look almost identical. You mentioned using a base and I see what you mean. Bases might seem like good ideas, but only in the short run, like tracing drawings. If you learn how to actually create things from scratch, you'll eventually learn how to make whatever type of body you want. If you like how these bodies look then that's fine, but you having your models look a certain way should be a choice, not something that you're forced to do because you don't have the skills to do anything different. :)

Seconded. I tried painting using paint tool sai and went like this.
>import uv at high res
>paint at high res
>lower canvas res
>adjust pixels
>import to blender
The problem is when I change the canvas res the uvs are pixelated too so its hard to put the pixels where I want them relative to the uv

They're by circlesoldat. He's really good at that sort of late 90's look. His texture work is some kind of magic that I've dried and failed to emulate.

I wish I could.

All I can say is that his textures use noise and edge highlights, and that his UV maps leave virtually no distortion to be seen.
>>
>>693757
>>693791
Texturing straight onto the UVs is usally pretty difficult and time consuming unless you're doing something like a box (which even then you can't intuitively tell rotation and what not). I personally only import the whole texture into an image editing program for touch ups. Texture painting onto the model through Photoshop, Blender, or even Substance is far more intuitive. Although note Blender's texture painting is one layer only, so if you want to so much as change a color, you'll have to import that crap back into Photoshop and do it by hand.

Pretty much learn how to UV map good or bad (unintuitive at first but becomes crap you can do in your sleep after you get a hold of it), then you can choose whether to paint onto the model in 3D or do it in 2D.
>>
>>688709
Oooh. That looks cool - the kind of low-poly I like. The textures are the right amount of low-res to make the model look like 3D pixel art!

Does anyone know how to set up the vertex color data node together with a diffuse texture in UE4, by the way?
Can't find a single tutorial on using vertex colours for their actual colours (just a million tutorials on how to blend materials by using vertex colours as a mask)...
>>
>>693860
Unity can't into "base texture multiplied by the vertex colors" out of the box either IIRC, forcing you to write your own shader. I fear it may be the same in Unreal too.

Why exactly do you need a tutorial for that?
You already know there is a vertex color data node. Just pop it into the base color slot. Done.
Or multiply/ blend it with your diffuse texture.
That's literally it.
>>
>>693872
Apparently, that doesn't work.

>>693873
The problem is that the vertex color data doesn't interact with the diffuse like it's supposed to. White is supposed to just let everything in the diffuse through, like alpha, but instead it just adds white to the surface.

Double check that your vertex colors are importing correctly, should be able to visualize them in the editor. When you are troubleshooting something don't just assume any step in the process is going as expected. Also I don't know why you ask this here in the lowpoly thread instead of the /agdg/ thread you dumped all your crap into.
>>
>>693880
Just thought I might try. Google wasn't giving any results at all.
I've never seen anyone on AGDG use vertex colours with diffuse textures, but I guess it's worth asking there too, if I can't figure this out.

Depending on the result your programmer is searching for you'll need to do some color space conversions. Chances are your shader nodes of choice convert inputs to linear space but to get the proper oldschool shading you'll need all inputs back to srgb color space (for example by applying a gamma correction of 0.47, which isn't quite the right way but good enough an approximation) before the multiplication, and then shift the result back to linear space (with a gamma of 2.2) right before the output node.

Good for you anon.
If you would like feedback, I'm not an expert or anything... but to me, some of the scales look a bit too small compared to everything else.
The scales on the feet look about the size I'd expect, as do the scales on the back of the neck, but other scales look very small and that with the high color contrast and animation makes them feel distracting, especially on the tale where I can see the very small scales directly next to the larger tail-underbelly texture. I hope this helps.

yea, I think I see what you mean. there is no logic to dictate the size of a scale relative to the others.

To be fair, cel shading pretty much means "shader that takes inspiration from 2D". So I'd say unlit but meant to look 2D counts. JSR is pretty much the same thing but with one darker tone.

I wouldn't call him a "moron" because these days cel shading as a definition doesn't mean much.

not him but designers typically made their models this way back in the day. the reality coprocessor on the n64 was exceptional at rendering high amounts of vertices on the screen at once. The bandwidth of these processors were so high that it hardly mattered even then
>>
>>694202
Hey just wanted to jump in and add a small correction. they actually did this because the n64 had problems displacing textures correctly as animations deformed the model. with the vertices there in those random positions, texture displacement was smoothed out. the whole model jitters and createes lots of visual artifacts if this was not done. The effects of not using this kind of geometry can be seen in ogre battle 64

For everyone wondering how you uv unwrap for pixelated textures, look into sprytile

https://chemikhazi.itch.io/sprytile

It’s a blender add-on (currently only 2.79 I believe) that either lets you model in set square sizes (e.g. create a 16x16 textured face) or paint pixel perfect textures onto a uv.
>>
>>694287
Or just use snap to pixels and follow active quads or reset, like a non-retard.

that's, what, a 3d scan of a print? You can literally see the original polys under all that garbage. Also, even if that was a legit wireframe, that model only shows up at the very beginning and very end of the game, at worst there are only three other models on screen with it at the same time not counting the environment. Mario's wireframe would be much more indicative of the level of detail used for gameplay.

There you go. It's a skill gap.
I'll give you that there aren't too many "straight up" texture painting software without the procedural PBR fluff, and Blender is a pain at locking you to one layer. But even so, a bunch of it literally is just getting good at 2D art and getting used to working with low poly and its compromises.

Like, you can look at the image, and it's pretty direct. Low poly, stuff is separated into different sections, and it more or less respects the artificial limits imposed. What do you want me to say more than that which doesn't extend to just "how to color well" and "how to shade well".

It depends I'm not very good at 2D art, and just know my way around 3D art, but I think I can pull off that style *decently". The modelling part, low poly is about putting up with gotcha's all the time. You end up forming your own tricks how to speed things up, and you should be conscious of compromising rather than maximizing detail. Anything you can't fit in the mesh goes in the texture. It's so simple, but it's a bad habit for me and I waste hours on that crap.

As far as 2D art goes, we aren't talking *super pro level* being required to get something to look good. Just train both skills and make stuff, that's honestly the best I can give outside of specifics. Even if you don't turn into Capcom circa late 90s in a year, you can still make stuff that looks pretty darn good, and that's valuable.

Looks nice. UV mapping is annoying as he*k when starting out as it's unintuitive busy work. But once you get a handle of it, it's just mildly annoying busy work. And once you get fast it kind of becomes an afterthought on really simple models.
