Animation noob here--noticed there's some funky bones in this model exported from WoW.
In the screens, it shows the vertex weights for this example. (Also, it's parented to the elbow, and has no children of its own. Might not be clear from the shot.) Obviously these weights intersect with the weights given to the surrounding bones. I then looked at a sample animation, and noticed that this bone only animates displacement. (They use the same technique in many spots; upper arms, legs, some around his hunchback.)

What's the point of that? Is it a "hack" for solving weird pinching/volume loss? Would one use these "displacement bones" in a higher poly asset?

What are some simple CAD programs?
I am looking for something to create more accurate sculpting bases for weapons and the like.
I tried out 'Moment of Inspiration', which is pretty fun, but too expensive as a hobbyist and not properly cracked.
What applications do use prefer and why?

Fusion 360. Free for commercial use (indie-like projects). Pretty good mix of procedural and direct-modeling features. Modern interface, although a bit slow at times. Con: can run offline, but it's designed as mainly a cloud application; also, one never can trust Autodesk as far as licensing options goes -- the free offer might go away.

You are a good sculptor. I'm not sure about the hairline as I have never seen anyone with such a small forehead can you share the reference you used.

>> No.686492

didnt see it before. it does look very small. I didnt have a specific reference..

>> No.686494

what this dude said. your viewport captures look unironcally better than the render

without seeing reference it's hard to judge, but orbital furrow looks a little low and malar fat near that area is lacking. she looks old just in that region, while showing no aging anywhere else.

you guys are awesome. Ill continue working on it.

You can ask one of the "character designers" from that game looks like some of them are still in the industry.

Since tekken was originally released for the System 11 arcade console, which was essentially a Playstation in an arcade cabinet. They probably used Softimage 3D, which is what PSX developers were most fond of in the mid 90's. But they could have used 3D Studio 2 or 3 (3DS Max's ancestors) or any available 3D modeling software pre-1995.

tone down blurry glow thing. it looks awful. cheap early 00s photoshop nastiness. add noise to it as well.

composition on the bottom right is particularly weak.

I didnt think of postin there thank you, sorry for creating new thread then.

Also thanks for some of the feedback. The glow is just shadow catcher, as the file has transparent bg, but I understand what you mean.

Yeah, Im not happy with that either but I cant really come up with any good idea, how do you show Avocado's?

If you made a variation in the almonds argon it would improve it. But that's probably something only artists would notice

yeah not all human are models, this is a nice display of normalish looking person.
the only thing I don't particularly like is the forehead noise that is not as good as other parts of the model, I feel it should use an other similar alpha for that part, make the noise smaller and also reduce a little the intensity.

It literally looks fine. The nose is a little large, but there's probably some people with noses like that. There's nothing cringe about it.

I don’t come to this board much, since I’m a communication designer, but recently at work we’ve been tasked to find a way of exporting infographics from CAD models the client gives us.

Until now they’ve been taking screenshots inside Inventor (no joke) for the user manuals of their products.

I found, that Creo Illustrate (formerly Isodraw) seems to be the tool for the look they want to go for, but they don’t have Test versions.

They just provide personalized trainings.. I’d like to try it in my free time for free so I can give a good explanation to my boss if and why we should buy it.
I know this is frowned upon here, but does anyone have a direction to point me at to download it?

Also happy for any other software suggestions even though I feel like I shifted through most options..

Draftsight is a good enough aternative with a 30day trial you can just keep repeating.

It's a bit clunky but if the files are at least organised, you should be able to export what you need easily enough

I see some artists sculpt something without automatic mirroring instead of getting everything done and afterwards posing it and making asymmetric changes to break up uniformity. Why? It seems to me like a huge waste of time.

You can judge forms in 2-D fairly well if you draw

>> No.686545

It's not the same, but it's totally possible to "feel" form when drawing.
Obviously it's not like you're running your hand over it.
When I'm shading something it's easy for me to imagine and perceive the 3d structure of the object just as if I was running my hand over it. It just translates into pressure. Like if you're shading a ridge, if you imagine your hand going up and over it while you're shading, your hand will subconsciously do that movement. So it's like you're compressing that depth into super small movements on the paper using pressure.
It's hard to explain, but it works. At least for me.

This seems to be a lot better than the standard way. Where you model everything and etc.

Instead you just use modifier on very simple objects.

>boomer giving some workflow that existed for a while a flashy acronym literally no one asked for
Just boomer things.

Anyways, non-destructive modelling is incredibly nice even though I sometimes think a bit autistically about it, thinking it might make you turn more and more sloppy in your workflow. But in the end I guess it doesn't matter if the result is exactly as wanted. The biggest advantage of it I love the most of course is the ability to be able to change literally anything really quickly at every stage, so yeah, perfect for prototyping shit but if you aim to churn out game ready stuff using 2D reference, it might be faster to just do the mesh the old fashioned way from the start so you don't have to spend time retopo your shit afterwards.

I hoping that someone here could help me figure out how to extract models from a mod for skyrim called Skyrim 3D Trees and Plants.

I only wish to make some edits to some of the meshes but, I can't for the life of me figure out how to got about it. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.
