Are you talking about the sleeves? If so, yes, I do have to work on those. I'm no expert in cloth either, this is my first time sculpting in Mudbox (don't lynch me, it's mandated).

>>

>>514374

It looks like what clothes might look like in zero gravity. Clothes dont poof like that, they have gravity and hang down(like clothes hang down a coathanger) There is no air cushion between the cloths and the body. The sgoulders are going to be more pronounced while the abdomen and back area are going to be more hanging. Its lumpy and undefined.

Is that Blender (if not, you can certainly set a grid floor + "paper" background like that)?
Anyway, it might help to try the Sewing Force cloth simulator to give you a bit better idea of what things would look like under certain circumstances (such as wind) given the size/shape ("volume") of your character.

>>
>>514430
>>514436
>>514437

The model is probably good, the shading looks like a creepy version of Reboot or something.

The eye shadow, or whatever that ring around the eye is called, looks like conjunctivitis, and the hair shading and line thickness looks really bad.

I think you ought to tweak it more towards the toon shader side.

Working on a hands rig and it's pissing me off (new to rigging). Anyone think they can help?

The first time I rotate it is how it's supposed to work; the arm twists rotate when the hands rotate on the Y axis.

The second time I rotate it is showing the issue. The arm twists are randomly rotating when the hand is rotating on Z.

Might just be the render but corners seem sharp around the various intersections/joints (torso, knees, chin) maybe add a little bit of bevel.
Unless it's meant to look like very sharp/dangerous scrap plate metal or like, scrap rocket parts or something, then maybe make the metal more burnished and less glossy.

Are you doing this as a technical excersise? As a workflow it is quite dated

I feel it's a pretty good workflow for quickly setting up a base mesh to bring into Zbrush at low resolution and then subdivide and sculpt on.
>>
>>514734
>quickly
>has zbrush
Start from a sphere, dynamesh as you go. Yours is a nice start but I'd wager in the 20 mins it took you to model that you could already have your basemesh ready for sculpting if you upgraded your workflow to 2016.

That's some solid advice thanks. It's coming along nicely. Still can't figure out how to fix the alien skull 100% though.
>>
>>514736
I don't understand people who act like doing anything aside from a 100% ZBrush workflow is archaeic or inefficient.

Poly modeling a base mesh before bringing it in for sculpting is a perfectly fine workflow in 2016.
>>
>>514826

That's what I always do. Box model something rough in a vertex modeller and then send it to the sculpting modeller to be detailed. Hell of a lot faster than trying to make everything from a sphere in my sculpting software.
>>
im a maya user giving 3dsmax a try for modeling.
Kind of exited about the modifier stack but disappointed how slow modeling is (im a marking menu flick maniac)
There is one thing that bothers me and its the manipulator handle detection is too exact, in maya you dont have to be exactly over the manipulator to move it just close enough, is there anything similar in max? clicking 1mm outside the handle and losing the selection and having to undo is annoying.
>>
>>514826

to be honest its rare to see people doing poly bases anymore. dynamesh and zspheres just make it so fast.
I typically use dynamesh until its a mid resolution model with the final volumes and then i bring it to maya or topogun (or even inside zbrush if its simple) in order to retopologize the basemesh, zremesher for simple objects gives excellent one click results.
Then i bring the base mesh and subdivide while projecting the detail from the dynamesh a few times until it looks the same and carry on traditional multi level sculpting from there. Zbrush really just kills it for anything organic or fast remeshing.

Im learning how to do hard surface with zmodeler and its a good start but i still prefer poly modeling for hard surface stuff, it just feels more precise.

Besides there is no 100% zbrush workflow, modeling is not the only thing 3d apps do. rendering, animation rigging etc.

It takes on average 7 years to master any new skill, and even then you'll still be constantly learning new shit.

Don't sweat it.

I wouldn't model your figures with the arms that close to the body though because it will cause headaches when it's time to rig them.

Don't be afraid to use moar polygon; areas such as those foglight surrounds and side skirts look especially ugly when lowpoly.

Personal preference, but I like having consistent poly density through the entire model as it looks neater.

Terminate unecessary edgeloops, like the trio on the door window. You can just Merge to Center or to any active vertex.

t's not really clear from your render but 99% of all cars have a slight horizontal convex curve along the side daylight openings to allow the window to slide down the door the entire or most of the way.

99% of all cars also have a flattened margin around the circumference of the wheel well for aerodynamics and strength. You can see from my image that to model this cleanly, you need to model it dirty. Use the Knife tool on pre-existing geometry to cut where the wheel well flare begins. Place lots of vertices down as this area also sticks out like a sore thumb when lowpoly. Place your 3D Cursor in the centre of your wheel, set the Pivot Point to 3D Cursor and extrude scale (select loop, press E, then S) to the edge of the wheel well, locking the x-axis (Shift+X). Adjust vertices to fit your blueprint as necessary, then flare/add loops/do whatever until it looks right. You'll be left with a few n-gons, which are easily fixed anyway.

In all, your model is quite cleanly done and definitely recognisable as an Alto. Nice one!

You mind adding me? I want to mod for arma 3 for fun and for portfolio, I'd love to discuss some shit.

I've never really done sculpting before. Whenever I've made character models previously I've always made super blocky dudes just extruding the cube into a human form and then adding a Subsurface Division modifier to round it out into cartoon characters and then call it a day, but right I'm actually trying to sculpt something that looks good.

I kinda did the same thing here, I made a blocky character originally to start off, but now I flipped into sculpt mode and turned on Dyntopo and am going at it.

Before I put too much effort into this. Am I going down a good route? Should I be doing this differently? Advice? In the meantime, I'm going to continue this woman model because I'm having fun doing it. I know it doesn't look great, I haven't put a whole lot of time into it yet.
>>
>>515075

You will be forever softening out those features. It would be better to start from a base mesh with appropriate topology. Dynamesh is for concept sculpting so I don't use if for figures.
>>
>>515075
Use reference. Also if you have a shit pc like I do, you'll propably be able to go much higher poly in applications that are spcifically made for sculpting like mudbox.

Well, since youre looking at the ocean almost at a 90 degree angle youd see a lot more reflections. So setup a visible sun or light that will produce these reflectons and darken the color a bit. Some ambient occlusion wouldnt hurt either

An ocean doesn't look like that at a shoreline, the water depth and shoreline have influences on the wave shapes and directions. Search for reference pictures and try to replicate what you see, it's not shameful to take inspiration from pictures or other works.

I didn't intend for the water to look like the shoreline. The house is supposed to be more elevated and look like you're looking out past the shoreline and into deeper water.

That's why I said you should add an extra light to produce highlights in the water since it looks washed out and if you're replicating a camera the outside would look a little overexposed

Yes
Just look at other artist renderings
Look at the color and highlights of the water and overexposure near the windows. Study these images and apply it to yours

Try not showing that much water if you want to achieve that effect, and do something about the depth perception - bushes "disappearing" down the hill, etc

Her mid-section is much too tall, too long. Her top half chest, and upper body looks as if trying to escape away from her mid-section.
Bring her entire upper body down to shrink her stomach, and she will have perfect proportions. You could also bring her stomach down a bit too. Smaller shoulders, and less wider neck muscles would also improve correct proportions.

You can also hover things over a mesh as long as it's not obvious, for some really simple and cool ways to get extra detail in.

As long as it's not obvious you can do whatever. That's what my teachers who all made some of your favorite games and are working on the /v/'s most anticipated are doing.

Today I made a grave. Do you guys like? I dont know how to texture, someone on /v/ told me about something called normalmapping.

I just want to create interesting resources, and if anything happens, I will later match the resources with proper bitmap, bumpmap or whatever, instead of some items glistenig, while others are more grimdark. Consistency.

Quick question, if I use textures, will it be "baked" into the file, so i can delete the .jpg later, or what?

Okay after some experimenting I managed to make an HDRi with some crude clouds

Still can't find any way to make the ocean look better
>>
>>515523
The water looks way better now. Actually, the whole scene looks slightly more realistic now because of this new hdri, assuming this is the only thing you changed between that old render and this one.
>>
>>515525
I also added a cloud texture as a bump map to the water. The only thing I cannot figure out is how to make the water look transparent in shallow water and more opaque in deeper.

Also that has to be the most crudest clouds for an HDRi ever.
>>
>>515527
You need to use the facing ratio/compare the view direction and the surface normal direction as an input to the reflectivity and/or opacity. That way as you get more parallel to the surface, it becomes more opaque and reflective, and as you get more perpendicular, it loses reflectivity and opacity.

Are you talking about the angle the camera is? Because I'm talking about the depth of the water. The deeper the depth is the more opaque the water looks.
>>
>>515532
no sex/10
>>
>>515533
If you treat the water as a volume and not a plane, you can use the camera angle to calculate the depth at a particular pixel and then modulate the color of the water with that value. This would be in addition to what I already stated about using the tangent angle of the ray coming from the camera vs the surface normal direction to modulate reflectivity and overall opacity. Water is complex and a lot of things have to be considered to make it look truly realistic.
>>
>>515536
>If you treat the water as a volume and not a plane
I just applied a volume to it and it looks a lot better. However I am using a displaced cube and not a plane so I can set the absorption to a certain depth. Now I can actually see that transition from clear to green to blue.

Thanks.

I mean, just keep modelling and it gets easier. I'm pretty happy with how my models look but I'm a really, really slow worker and never finish things.

Alright I gave this a go, it sort of works, but it doesn't seem to be enough edges to really work properly, even attempting to do it to a smoothed surface, or smoothing afterwards makes it very noticeably bad, this also applies to adding more verts. Is there anyway to create the crack along an edge, without it becoming a pixel mess in Maya?

I might be going it about it wrong. This is what I'm basing it off of and what I'm trying to do it through.

If you're dead set on working within Maya's limits I can only think of hacky and/or tedious ways to go about this.

Booleaning the cracks would give you nice sharp edges and good control over the final result, but there is a lot of manual labor involved. You could try quad drawing the shape of the crack, give it plenty of divisions, shrink wrap it to the surface, extrude it and weld vertices where necessary, then booleaning it.

You could also try using a texture deformer with a UV'd basemesh, or if you're using 2016 try the new sculpting brushes (mainly knife and scrape) that were imported from Mudbox. With this approach you will need a very dense mesh, reduce the polycount afterwards (mesh>reduce) .
This really is a job for a dedicated sculpting program, Mudbox for example has a free student license. It's very simple to pick up, you should give it a spin.

If you're meaning to turn this into a proper game asset take a while to think about a economical tiling UV layout, the Polycount wiki for example should give you lots of ideas.

Thanks for all the help. It's not easy to see here. But the cut tool you suggested, along with reducing the mesh worked out exactly how I wanted. It'll take me a while to get the cut tool to work exactly how I want. I've seen videos of programs outside of Maya that do the sculpting and it does look far easier.

One thing I noticed is I'm going to have to exaggerate the crack sizes, since they are hard to notice. Might also be because I'm using a global illumination without any sort of texture.

The issue was that I've been working in comic book production for a few years now but my artist disappeared and I don't have the funding to hire someone of his caliber. The experiment was to see if I could make some form of viable art myself but 3D comics have such a stigma.

I'm reasonably well versed in 3D but I fail miserably when it comes to 2d art

Pic is a test render from something I was working on awhile back
>>
>>515627
I don't know exactly why, but mudbox distorts much less when you get really close to the object, so you might wanna use that instead. (Or just "buy" zbrush)

With orthographic view you're just gonna end up with a mesh that looks completely wrong in the final render.

It's a totally nondescript, eyeless and horrendously textured duckman. This was actually the second model I ever made in a big boy modelling program (blender).

I don't really post my work here (I don't think my work is good enough), but I mainly lurk. Here's a little something though, I'm kind of pleased with how it's coming along.
I'm working on a little loopable webm/gif.

Usually I just make wallpapers, if you've been to /wg/ I post as Axiom (I won't namefag here), but I'm trying some new shit.
My laptop/computer is pretty shitty (at least in terms of rendering speed), so I'm really stuck doing tiny animations anyway. It's not really a problem I guess, maybe I'll get a new computer someday.

I'm still working on trying to get it to loop perfectly. I've got a bunch of moving parts, and for the most part I'm just eyeballing the geometry against guides to get placement.
I'm planning on adding a flat plane with buildings in the background that slides to the left. Kind of like those old racing games for SNES and Genesis.

I'm happy with the way the post production is going though. I've never bothered with the compositor because I prefer photoshop, but fuck that for animations.


Anyway, sorry for the blog post. Let me know what you think.

So I've made some progress on the little animation.
Please ignore the tiny as fuck size and shit noise.

I've added a little city in the background, which is just an image sequence of the texture translating. Right now it's way too fast, and I'm confused on to how to make it slower but still loop.
I have a 30 frame animation (0-29) with the last keyframe on 30. The texture's x value is animated to go from 0 to 1. Obviously it's too fast, it needs to be around 20% of the speed it's at but I have no idea how to slow it down in relation to the rest of the animation and make it fit.

I have to work on the post pro a little more as well. It needs some big tweaking, which will be an easy fix.

>>515705
I'm kind of iffy about adding actual lamps because of how it would attach to a highway ramp like this.
I can try making the image brighter overall though.
>>
>>515729
not a fan of the background, it seems like its going back and forth and just a bunch of dots.

maybe a still background would be better.
>>
>>515730
As I said, I have it going way too fast.
Once I figure out how to slow it down it will look better.
I just have to figure out how to do that.

The base female character model for my game. Topology is fine, deforms are acceptable. Needs a cleanup pass: especially the feet and knees.

Texturing is *not* my strong point.

I'm not 100% on the proportions.
>>
>>515729
The background image has to move even slower than 20%, parallax effect man.
Also, maybe add the moon to the shot and use its light to brighten the scene.
To slow down the background, maybe make the car loop several times before the background loops once, something like that.
>>
>>515729
>>515743
hmm what you could do is render them separate
with the background being a longer animation and have the car loop several times over that
and then layer them together in a film program.
>>
>>515743
>>515757
Yeah that can work. It's a simple solution.
I don't know what I was thinking.
I felt like I was tied to getting it all in that one go.
Fuck me for forgetting that I had made a fucking indefinite loop. The background could move as slow as I fucking want.

I haven't had much sleep.
Thanks for the advice anon/s.

I'll see what I can do about the background/scene. How much brighter does it need to be? I usually do synthwave art, so everything is pretty dark save for neon and shit.

I can relate. You're creating your ideal woman, she's yours, you can get her to move, and do what you want. This is probably more common than most will admit.
It is hard, but you can use the energy of your "being horny" to get yourself to create stories, and content for your character to live in. Give her the personality, an environment deserving of her, and create a story of what you'd like to see her in. This is partly how creativity is sparked if managed to produce long term results.

So for the most part, I guess I'm finished with the loop.
Here's what it looks like.
I rendered it out at 1920x1080, but everything I use to try to convert the avi to webm, it compresses it or shrinks it.
So this is the best I can get in terms of quality despite actually rendering at high quality.

I love the lighting, the floor and the curtains are good, although the floor looks too dented on the left. Everything else is just disgustingly bad.

There's no reason to polish a turd.
Start over. In a few years you'll get gud enough to achive photorealism.
>>
>>516038
But a drawing is different from 3d. In a drawing you're creating a definitive view of what is, where as in 3d you tinker with different parts, and move the camera around to see other parts of it.
A 3d model tends to have a more exterior appeal to it (as if a life of its own) over a 2d image with one specific locked view of it.
>>
>>516062
2D > 3D
thats always been the case. I can draw impossible shapes and amazing views with beautiful lighting that you can't replicate in 3d. 3d is for retards who can't appreciate the elegance of 2d

>3d is for retards who can't appreciate the elegance of 2d

Are you certain? Because I do both, and appreciate both for different reasons. 2d, partly for what you mentioned, and 3d because it is fun to see the different lighting, and changeable viewing angles.

>>516023
You're models are horrible. Essentially primitives strapped to each other with the exception of the pillows which actually look like they might be alright and I guess the speakers are better than the rest of the scene.
The textures are unbelievable, over-saturated, poorly sized.
The lighting I can't even get a read on because of the rest of the scene is so poor. Regardless, turn up the samples. Do you not see that?
Be more critical of yourself. Remodel something if it comes out poorly, spend the time adjusting samples and quality to get lighting correct, realize if your textures are terrible everything else is going to automatically look terrible.

I know some models still need work, going to fix those, the scene is still very wip
For the textures, I was surprised about the "oversaturated" part, I mean, I did the exact opposite, the woods were really saturated and I turned em all down, also, which textures you consider to be horrible? Just to know what I have to focus on, for example the floor and frames wood looks ok to me.
Also I'm trying to check the scene from multiple angles
>>
>>516067
Is it a little doll-house? Eerything is so roughly shaped and out of proportion
>>
>>516067
The woods are still saturated and vibrant and strange colors. The couch fabric is over-sized and has really strange UV mapping that makes it look even worse than it should. Everything else pretty much looks like flat colors on basic shaders. If it's a vibrant red object, it should read like paint, plastic, or both and there is a lot of red in your scene that looks like it's supposed to be wood or nothing.

The curtains are alright, the books are fine

Good lighting will also make a lot of what you have go much further. If you are just on a final gathering setup, add some GI passes. That can help with indoor lighting setups.
>>
>>516067
>>516074

Also, add some actual detail into your models. Cabinets are not just boxes, shelves are not just boxes, Handles are not just boxes or cylinders (see the pattern?) I do like that air conditioning unit -- or whatever it is -- above the bookshelf
>>
>>516035
>I don't know how you did it, but you made it worse.
It's pretty simple, I tried to be "efficient" in terms of frames. So I thought I could take a shortcut and the outcome be alright.

It's not. I'm re-doing the cityscape proper. Or at least better than it is here. I've set up a full 360 degree scene, that should look better than a repeated texture (webm related; just a small snippet). I'm still working with getting the speeds right, so right now it's a bit too fast I think.
I thought the texture would be alright because they got away with shit like that in old vidya games, but I guess not.
Lucky I haven't posted it anywhere except here.

I'm going to have to bite the bullet and make the city have an animation.
Lucky I have the big part (the road) all animated. Rendering out a 720 frame animation that's nearly all emit shouldn't take too long (I've calculated it at around 6.4 hours). My computer isn't really built for this sort of thing.


>>516036
Glad you like it. I haven't done animation before so I'm still working out the kinks.

>>516039
Now that I see it in motion like this, neither do I.

Thanks for the tips
Usually I chamfer every box, and if a cabinet, I add the minor "spaces and details", but if you tell me it doesn't look like that I have to do something. The red boxes are actually wood, but with this light setup those look like flat red, gonna fix that, also I'm trying to put some hq texture in the right place, gonna update as soon as I fix some of these mistakes

Try going back to some of your older hentai. Your brain wont remember all the mistakes and you'll see what other people see when they see your art.

1: Add a SubSurfaceScattering map to the curtains, it's way too bright as if its a self illuminating map
2:Why is there blotches on the wall, low GI subdivision or something?
3:Increase reflection value slightly on the TV and increase the subdivision as well, its noisy
4:The paint frame is big and putting it up higher would look more pleasing
5:What's up with that disgusting noisy AO? Fix that
6:Play around with the lighting, setup HDRI or add some soft ambient lights

LC is 2000 and IM is High with subd set to 100 (doubled)
Why the hell can't those spots go away? Perhaps I should increase secondary light's intensity or add more fill lights

Subsurf eh? Using extra geometry, or Shift+E to control your sharp edges?

Your panelgaps and part lines are lacking definition. It's what makes or breaks a good subsurf model; subtle topology differences can mean a crisp model, or a melted subsurf mess.

Also, try your hand at just using matcap viewport screengrabs instead of setting up lighting and geo for a scene. Much easier to assess a model when the finer details aren't washed out!
