Since avoiding insane poly counts is vital for game modelling, what do you find easier - straight up polymodelling or sculpting something out and then performing retopology? What parts about one method make you prefer it over the other?

Shells 3
What is the best way to make fur shells in Blender? I can't seem the find any tutorials or information on this. Everything I turn up involves baking everything from the fur mesh to a single texture and mesh, nothing really covering shells.

Pic related is my attempt at baking a hair particle system converted to a mesh then baked to 5 textured shells only baking the direct diffuse light. So far after messing with the bakers in blender such as AO and Normal, this seems to yield the best results, but I am sure better can be done.

I'm trying to model a face with poor references: one front view and a 3\4 portrait style view.

I have no information on the camera used, focal length, lens or anything like that.

Other that fucking around randomly with scene cameras to try and get it right, is there any method or utility that can be used to at least get it in the ballpark? The few I've found through Google only seem to work with architectural photos with plenty of orthographic lines to reference.

/ic/ here, I'm slowly mastering the trad art, at what point should I advance into blender and 3dsmax (know some basics, but still grinding hands and faces and perspective daily and it keeps me busy)? And what should I consider if I want to do /3/ stuff for living? I'm 25, no time for failures or changes of mind, anymore.

Are video games and TV (quite common in here) the only jobs that make use of 3d stuff?

Is 3D printing (modeling in CADs) an employable skill outside of niche marketing companies?

The cost/effectiveness ratio in the field of 3D is worse than in any other design branch.

The amount of time need to be put in to even learn even the slightest of basics is not comparable with any form of visual design.

Were CGI actors the stupidest thing?

Aki_Ross_(sample_image)
Why would anyone think it was a good idea? The whole advantage of non-live-action is that your characters are built from the ground up, they can look exactly like their creator envisioned. They aren't just another actor playing a different role, but the character at its purest.
But, yeah fuck that, let's constrain ourselves by reusing the same character models.

Drawing vs 3D

mmd___fujiwara_no_mokou_by_yzva_d5v7tc3-pre
Sorry for this generacy.

But. im a failed comic artist. Or rather one in training. I wanted to make a hentai with a story. I uploaded pages online, but i just never got any views cause im pretty bad at drawing. ive been tossing and turning in my bed, thinking about future. And i come to conclusion; drawing doesnt feel rewarding at all.

im thinking about what i want from art. And
i want to capture that feeling of being 14 again and watching hentai at 3 am on a school night- the greatest feeling in world.

so. i was thinking. Maybe i should try to do some episodic porn series, with 3d animation. But. i have no idea what i would be getting myself into. And how many months of work i would be looking forward to; creating my 5 min episode 1 of porn series

So /3/. I ask.
Should i do it. Should i try to make my hentai series with 3d modeling and give up drawing? Or not. I will say, it will be weird doing animation, since i am a manga purist (except for fapping)

Replicate this style ?

jojos-bizarre-adventure-all-star-battle-ss-1
I realise it might be a meme question (At least it's not a programs war thread) but do you people have any ideas, advices, explanations on how to replicate the style they used for this JoJo fighting game: https://youtu.be/R7DDnpw2T68?t=557
(Especially starting from the timestamp I put since the models are slimmer and that's what I'm aiming for)

I'm getting into 3DCG specifically for video games and when I see the critics of some assets you people posts, I definitely know that I'm not reaching for the level of details you guys aim for.
I love that game's artstyle so if I could specialise on that particular artstyle, I'd be more than happy even tough it's not that detailed (compared to models for movies or shortfilms I mean or even other games).

So tell me everything you can tell me by looking at this video, I mean everything, I need as much infos as possible so I can practice to reach that level. Let it be in terms of texturing, modeling, shading, I need every information about that artstyle.
I'm a little bit more interested in the faces than the rest but like I said, I want every piece of knwoledge you can extirpate from this video.

anyone on this board know anything about 3d fractals? especially in houdini and mandlebulb 3d.
Im looking for a reliable way to use them in realtime in ue4. I always used mandlebulb's voxel slicing to get a mesh, but thats quite messy.

Just started to learn houdini and its amazing how much easier stuff is. the downside here is that I have to program most stuff myself in order to make the fractals as modifiable as in m3d.

Any helpfull tips on how to approach this?

Persona 5 animations

61CivymScjL
Hopefully I'm posting this in the right place, I've been looking around but haven't been able to find what I'm looking for in terms of threads.

Would anyone have the animation files for Persona 5? Or at least point me in the right direction? I'm making a little present for a buddy of mine who's obsessed with Persona. Specifically the Protagonist and Mona, from Persona 5.

I've managed to collect all the character files I need but I'm coming up completely dry on any animations.

I've never actually tried ripping animations before, and I'm trying to hold off on buying the game just to give an attempt at ripping out the animations myself if I can avoid it. Wouldn't want to waste the time and funds for it if I end up not being able to do anything.

I'd really like to study the weight painting and topology of the street fighter series in general. I've also heard the Overwatch models people use to make SFM porn are astoundingly well rigged.

I know how to rig for film/tv, but I want to study it for games where you can't rely on blendshapes and shit.

Learning Resources

highres_243397500
Can we have a nice, friendly, thread linking to learning resources we have used and enjoyed?

The paid ones I'm linking to are on cgpeers.

Anything goes, just provide a brief blurb:

Arnold Renderer:

Mograph Plus introductions:
http://mographplus.com/shop/

If you want someone to read and demonstrate the manual to you these are great.

Arvid Schneider:
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1KDwEVBlxr4ew7xqLOhu9g

Long form videos mostly on procedural shader work. Can be a little rambly and disorganised, but I enjoy it because he'll solve problems during the videos instead of preparing everything in advance.


Houdini:

http://www.appliedhoudini.com/

Houdini Dynamics. Excellent mix of organised tutorial with on-the-fly problem solving. Talks through his reasons for what he's doing in detail and is unambiguous.


http://www.entagma.com/

Mostly fancy, VEX focused, tutorials. They have an introduction to vex and volumes on their patreon as well (on cgpeers)

https://vimeo.com/286576112

Houdini infection system tutorial.


https://www.pluralsight.com/courses/houdini-practical-math-tips

I'm just going through this now. Does what it says on the tin.


Misc:
https://www.pluralsight.com/courses/tips-modeling-complex-shapes-2082

Four part series on sub-d modelling. Focused and concise. Enjoyed it a great deal. Taught in Maya but should be easy enough to translate to your DCC of choice.

Zbrush for Ideation:
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLkzopwqcFevbxxNfZtq1ae09h1dht4S6M

Michael Pavlovich's updated introduction to zbrush.
Great for getting up and running.

What makes Maya especially good for animation?

Rig_viking
Not intending to start yet another software war, but I'm relaly curios about the differences when it comes to rigging (and animating) in Maya versus Blender.
Whenever people bring up Blender, Maya people tend to reply with "but Maya's rigging and animation tools are way better". But what exactly does Maya do differently in this department?
I'm no master at rigging or animation, but both tools seem very similar to me. In my limited experience, I have come to prefer Blender because "it just works", in the sense that I don't have to pay strict attention to hirarchies.
I can simply make a rig in Blender and scale the root bone to scale the whole rig uniformly. When I make control curves, these don't have to be placed in their own special hirearchy. When I make a pose, I can copy and flip any part of it with a simple key-stroke (have to manually input inverted values in Maya for each and every bone - unless you have some sort of script, which often happens to be specific to a specific typeof rig).
So far, I just find rigging a lot more painful in Maya, and I'm wondering what the actual benefits are.
Maya also doesn't allow me to store several animations in one file, which makes it a bit clunky to use for video games where you need a lot of separate loops.
I'm pretty shit at editing curves, but here it seems Maya looks a little neater - Blender has one curve for each value on each and every bone on each and every axis, and it just turns into a massive spaghetti for me, most of the time. Is this what you mean when you talk about how Maya is "better for animation"?

Anyway, hoping for some actual answers, because I'd just like to figure out what tools are available and how to best use them.

The Uncanny Valley

ayylmao
In aesthetics, the uncanny valley is a hypothesized relationship between the degree of an object's resemblance to a human being and the emotional response to such an object. The concept of the uncanny valley suggests humanoid objects which appear almost, but not exactly, like real human beings elicit uncanny, or strangely familiar, feelings of eeriness and revulsion in observers. Valley denotes a dip in the human observer's affinity for the replica, a relation that otherwise increases with the replica's human likeness.

Examples can be found in robotics, 3D computer animations, and lifelike dolls among others. With the increasing prevalence of virtual reality, augmented reality, and photorealistic computer animation, the 'valley' has been cited in the popular press in reaction to the verisimilitude of the creation as it approaches indistinguishability from reality. The uncanny valley hypothesis predicts an entity appearing almost human risks eliciting cold, eerie feelings in viewers.

Post examples.

/3/ OC model database

ivysaur
Has anyone thought of creating a booru style user-uploaded archive for /3/ models? It could accept stl/obj and show previews for the models so you know you're not downloading shitposts.

I think this would be incredibly beneficial if something like this was created and put on the sticky and would be a good way to explore OC without searching through archived threads etc.

Anyone want to work on an indie horror game with me?

test
I don't even know if I'm going to talk monetization (but we could see) but I want to work on some kind of project to stay motivated and practice.
I admit I'm not the best and still learning so beginners who want to practice also are more than welcome. I can texture using substance painter and if I had to choose an engine it would be unreal chink shit 4 due to being a bit easier to handle. Also I figure if we as a team don't even finish we could always part out or package our assets for $ in a store and at least get something out of our effort.

Also as for coding mechanics we could keep it simple enough that even if need be we could find someone with basic skills to help us finish on that end after we have a solid enough 3D asset base built up and maybe a basic prototype...
Could be fun! Discord me at PallyCookie#9194 if you'd like to learn with me! (I'm heading off to work and my phone is bricked so won't be in thread much until later tonight sorry)

Windows7 Maya 2013 to Windows10 Maya 2018

maya2018edition
Hay guys, haven't posted anything scene Christmas. Got burned out and I'm in the middle of switching to a better PC (*coaff* used *coaff*) Went over a video on 15 things to change when starting Win 10. Just got Maya 2018 working. Still loading the scripts I used.

Is the switch worth it?
What does it have that makes it better then Maya 2013 with rapid rig?

Also getting back into Zbrush.

WARNING Off Topic.
January I spent my time reading up on character arch types and design to give them personality traits and back story. To help the direction of my concept art. John Truby "GOLD" (learned about him when Stephen was talking with Brittany Pettibone) and google "character arch types" help. Along a with basic story. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KxDwieKpawg My current (lazy way) of doing it is to give them personality traits a, overall goal and then try and work out how they would act. Reminds me of D&D so much I think I will run a group in 2020. Will make an improvised sound room so my apartment neighbors wont think I' tripping on drugs.

Texture enhancing

D61537F7-FB61-46DD-A358-92EE0911C3FE
So I’m working on remastering some old models and I want to increase their texture quality. Using photoshop only makes it blurry and it loses detail. My question is, Is there any AI software, or app, that can increase texture quality for free? I know let’s enhance exists, but the 5 pics limit makes it a no-no.
Also, my pc died and I’m stuck with a mac for now. So hopefully it works with a mac, or i can emulate it with one. I’ll go back to windows after that.

Any 2D artist here that moved to 3D?

I want to start learning 3D but the whole medium is incredibly intimidating to me, I think students might be fine but I'm self taught and don't know where to even begin.
If we were in 2004 when technology was simpler It might've been easier, but during the last 10+ years a lot of new techniques and methods to create and render a model are out there, making it more confusing

And the UI, just baffling, for 2D I can open any random Graphics program and understand what each tools mean in 5 minutes, but 3D is a high learning curve.

Some people say 3D is easier than 2D, but I find that hard to believe

Realistic Human Faces

So over time, ive noticed that both videogame and render human faces tend to look less reslistic. Not because lf the texture or model quality, but there is something I feel after looking at them that doesn’t tell me “This is a guy I might see on the streets one day”
I don’t know what it is, I think it has to do with the eyes. They always look a bit big and like “default slider in character creation program”
