Do you have any "weird" tricks that you've discovered that help you sculpt better?

Being a commercial artist is different from just being a artist. You want to do this for a living in 'the industry' you have to compromise and shape your ability to be a commodity.

There is market for the sort of art you are interested to make but it's mainly a consumer market. You have to be really ace at what you do and be head-hunted to a indie project using that sort of art if you wish to gain real paying work off such an ability.

Indie projects is usually a small group of friends or people who know each other that has deep trust for one another, getting hired onto such a project is difficult
even if you have the right skillset, you need the right 'in' and the right chemistry to get onboard.

I'd join all the discords and indie art communities related to your field of interest and start building your presence, posting stuff and finding your people.

I ripped this games models, and I'm trying to make the skin look like pic-related. When you rip the model it gives you generic principled BSDF. I attached a fresnel shader, to get the glow on the outline, but I am not sure how to make the skin look like this. They're using fake lighting & shadows to give it that glow, and a mask is on certain parts of the body that has a stronger glow to it. How do I replicate it?

Here's the model when there's lighting in the scene. It looks like garbage unlike in the game. So it makes me think they are using fake lighting/shadows. Because the the lighting doesn't move when the character does. So I am trying to figure out how to get it to render like the game.

The model comes with 2 files. The main texture on the left, and the black red & green texture on the right. (Called a mask). The main thing I notice from the mask is that, it is only being shown on the right side of the face (like in the picture in the OP) so it makes me think that they're using the mask to make one side of the face glow, and the other side not.

See, the mask is only shown on the right side of the face. So that makes me think the mask might be related to how they're doing the glow on the face. How do I make the character models skin look like the picture in the OP? Do I draw another separate texture or something and put it where the mask is? Or do I do something else.

I've been using SourceFilmmaker over the past year to make a voiced-acted visual novel. It's called "Please Fur My Wife" and Pizza Girl is one of the heroines that you can date.

There's a demo out and you can see a few completed SFW scenes at youtube.com/@chadchan3d

The game's premise is that you're one of the last humans in a world of furries. This was an NTR fetish parody game (still is) but it's growing into a story about furries vs humans.

Also I lock in the camera behind the MC and first of all render out the scene from that locked perspective, then I render the other character sprites from that same perspective and even animate them and just render the webm with an alpha channel, that way the characters fit in perfectly with the scene even if they're just sprites

That offers great versatility (reusable sprites) while maintaining an immersive look. Very smart!

A strength of sprites is that they can shake and move left or right, like a picture cut-out glued onto a popsicle stick. I've been brainstorming ways of recreating that sense of motion with full 3D renders and one method is your way of using alpha channels. I've also considered using a combination of dissolves or of making simple slide animations (move the character on a single axis in or out of frame).

There is official blender documentation, but I feel like it's best to learn from examples. You can open in-built example scripts in the blender text editor by clicking Templates -> Python. Also, you can see how actual add-ons are made by just checking the scripts/addons folder in your blender installation directory.

You can do pretty much whatever you want on the level of meshes. Editing the UI is a lot more limited.

OP here.
Today i may have started to fall in love with ZBrush. In all honesty - 7 days ago, me working with Zbrush resembled a monkey trying to solve a rubics cube.
But now, i really started to see the strengths of using ZBrush with proper usage of hotkeys.

I am still working on Guts model, but i identified some key-issues:
- since i didn't T-Pose properly, dynamesh fused my armpits and created somehow fragments in- and outside the model
- i used a hair-asset that probably fragmented during Zremesher and projection, which are - interestingly enough - visible in Maya, not in ZBrush
- i recognised high-density poles on the chest and (correct me if am wrong) could fuck with the texture, when i try to use fill-layers and filter in substance painter.

Downloaded a cg zip file off of discord today that was flagged as a trojan virus. The funny thing was that it was actually my own maya projects folder that I had uploaded and shared with the support like 2 months ago. This is a major discord. Don't know if something is going on with windows defender definitions or what. It stopped me from opening the file and deleted the file and i scanned my system a bunch of times and I'm clean. Moral of the story : do not take anything for granted that you download, even if its your own file from discord. Who knows what type of stuff has been injected into it. Do not even think of pirating stuff.

its weird, its not just this file being marked as a virus, its all 7z files downloaded from online since i saved it as 7z. It doesnt happen with regular zip.

Right and hackers dont give a fuck about micro servers with a dozen users talling about inuyasha fanfiction. The bigger and more legit the server the more likely it is to be targeted.
Imo your anti virus is dinging any file it detects containing embedded python scripts.
