Just ignore him. He's one of the weirder /3/ regulars. Used to post in the DAZ generals (or something similar), went on a manic spree heralding Blender as the best, even decided to create a thread dedicated to himself (which I was completely fine with contrary to /3/'s general-enforcing standards since it effectively acted as a containment thread). Guess he realised no one paid attention to him in there so now he's here.
Interacting with him in any moderately critical way causes him to respond in some obtuse, arrogant and self-praising manner (like he just did). Trying to push it further causes him to spout some superiority complex derogatory bullshit like "Isn't it past your bedtime?" or "Shh, the adults are working". It's pointless trying to stop him is what I'm saying.

2100 polys or 2100 tris? if its 2100 the tri count would be almost doubled to 4000(probably more). and judging from the pic its more than likely 4000 tris because you have details that you dont normally see in low poly models. at this point this model is considered low poly in the sense that it can be thrown into one subivision to smooth it out and no detail would be lost because of poly count. i have a model at 1760 polys with 3364 tris and thats sort of considered low poly because i have details that you normally see in low poly, like no definition of the face using only simple planes for ears and a simple poly for the nose. in general low poly is in the range of 300-1000 tris.

Possibly my first post to /3/ so hey everybody!

Some Quake II inspired character concept stuff I've been working on for a couple of days.Testing out some Zbrush to Photoshop workflows to try and determine which parts are faster to sculpt and which parts are faster to paint/photobash. This was a ~6 hour sculpt with another 8-12 hours spent in Photoshop.

Things I noticed while doing this:

- It would have made more sense to split all the individual parts into separate subtools for easier rendering/compositin with a nicely split clown pass

- Keyshot can be a real fucking cunt some times

- I definitely hould have spent more time in 3D overall. If I'd spent another 5h. sculpting this I could have been done with the whole image in 70% of the time

- Should have taken a rust render pass instead of photobashing that shit

Do you guys think there's a market for this type of thing? I mean, I'm obviously slower than a guy doing quick speed paintings/line art (I can do that shit too though) however this workflow gives me something I can send the modelers as a base for retopology and shit. Where should I put my focus? C&C welcome...

No. XXX is pretty common to denote alcohol and stuff in a country/western setting. But I always thought it had more to do with moonshine than alcohol in general.

Looks pretty neat. For obvious reasons, it reminds me a lot of the Revenants and similar in the Doom games, just more agile looking. So I guess it'd fit right in with Quake as well considering it's also an Id game.
I wish there was some more color in it though. I think making the cyber eyes glow a bit more than they are now could really give off more of a menacing look to it as well. Knees look a bit wonky too I think.

Thanks for the crit on the skeletron dude. Btw I agree on the XXX thing btw. If you ever watch really old western cartoons or read those comics that's what you're gonna see.

I understand where you're coming from with the color thing but I really want him to look bleak like an old military machine. Maybe I should have given him some scifi military decals? I made the eyes glow a bit more. I get what you're saying about those knees but it doesn't really bother me. It's like some of those MGS robots with kind of wonky looking anatomy to distinguish them from a man in a suit.

But yeah. Might be returning to this in a couple of weeks and I'll definitely take your observations into consideration /,,/.


Nice job if that's your first face. Female faces are super hard to sculpt. You can deform male faces to shit and they can still look appealing. Female faces just look ugly if you deviate from the norm and you don't know what you're doing.

I think you should look up some nose anatomy stuff. The tip of her nose looks like someone cut off a bit. I think she could do with some fuller lips with more dynamic shapes. There's a bunch of stuff you could do but this is definitely a good start!

Do you see what I mean? It looks like a rolling pin or cylinder has been pushed into her face where her eyes/nosebridge/cheekbones are. Push those out and formulate more of an eye socket. I know you're going for an anime look, but it looks like you've payed attention to the front and side view and not to the three quarter view so your model is skewed along those two axis. which is also why her mouth/nose/jaw area is pinched along that blue line to create the profile view without adding any actual volume to those areas.

It is super important to constantly check your work from the three quarter view and just generally look around your model all the way through the modeling process.

I understand what you're trying to do with following your refs to a perfect T, but you still gotta follow basic 3d animu rules in making it look 'right'. Remember, its a 3D model, not a picture.
Like the eyes being really small and so far apart is not good for animu. The basic rule of thumb is to make the width of 1 eye be the same length of how far apart they are (pic related); it works in most stylized 3d models and safer to do so it'll look right in the 3/4s view.

I would recommend looking at 3d models of animu; pinterest is the best site for this because it'll show you wireframes etc. of 3d models. Learning how to see proportions and details is the first thing I would work on.
Also excellent job on finishing the mesh of the model and sticking through until the end. Persistence is very important in getting gud at 3d so keep at it, and you want to keep the momentum of this habit so it won't wear off.

Give it some more snap and pop. It doesn't have any personality to it.
Instead of having the capsule open linearly, have it pop open quickly, give it a little bit of a wobble when it reaches the furthest point so it's got some inertia.
As for the spinning bottle, maybe give the spin some more variation instead of an ease in- ease out. Maybe start slow, with it tilted like it is at 45 degrees, straighten up and speed up the spin (like a skater tucking in when spinning), then go back to the initial angle and slow down.

Ahhhh, back to her... New computer. New me. Gave up on my dreams of a universal procedural texture though. Decided to just port over the DAZ texture pack I was using for reference on my attempted procedural textures. Hoping to use cycles instead of Iray... Or rather, I am hoping to use blender's node editor instead of DAZ's god awful menu system.

The current results are decent ([pic related]'s settings are extreme for visibility's sake). That said, I get the feeling that I'm going to have to rethink my approach. The way I am currently assembling the multiple bump maps looks to be creating very subtle edges at material seams ([pic related]'s armpit is actually one of the less obvious examples of this issue). I also have no idea how to convert shininess to roughness properly so...

I think I might just steal the grain from the shininess map I have and mix it into a desirable roughness value instead. Right, now I'm trying to just straight convert it from shininess to roughness, but the related info I could search up was sparse and mostly said it couldn't be done... Apparently, they were right. [pic related] was supposed to be the default shininess to roughness, but its way to oily for a default.

Whoever made this texture pack is a dick as well... Half of the textures are using some super esoteric color profile that crashes blender when switch to preview render. Maybe its a problem with 2.80, but meh. Its still fucking annoying having to import the images to gimp, convert their color profile and save them. There is probably some way to batch the conversion process, but I don't know it...

Anyways I'm off to buy a new monitor. This old flat screen tv isn't cutting it anymore.

A quick Random walk vs Christensen-Burley SSS comparison. I made the renders to analyze the color contribution pass to see if the Random Walk SSS was blueing mouth corners and eye lids... It doesn't seem to be any worse then the Christensen-Burley setting; at least, not at a 1cm scale setting. The blueing is very noticeable when SSS scale is set larger then that. Thankfully 1cm scale was roughly the setting I was hoping to use on the material's SSS so I wont be needing to create a mask for it.

I figured I'd post the renders here for anyone that wanted a comparison. All of the material's other settings are still set very high, and I've obviously not done any work on her eyes. No post processing in this one either so its a little under exposed. My last post had some white balancing.

I do really like how fleshy your lips ended up looking, and the lack of glow around her nostril and in the folds of her eyelids. This is basically why they added random walk though so I'm not surprised. The random walk did saturate her skin a little more, but that can be easily compensated for.

Both images were 512 samples. Christensen-Burley took 3min and Random walk took 3.5min... Honestly, not that bad for what they said was going to be a lowbrow, brute force solution.

cheers mate:
>render time
Took about 1.5-2 hours per frame usually. I was originally going for 1080 but had to settle for 720 because the 1080s where talking about 5 hours per frame. I don't have the spec on hand unfortunately.
I would say about 50% was straight up downloaded and just placed while the other half can be split into download then kit-bashed / drastically changed or modeled by me. found out in ArcVis almost no one good makes their own furniture, wastes too much time.
>cloth materials
I haven't used a material tutorial in a long time so I can't recommend one unfortunately, most of the texturing knowledge I have now it just knowledge of what the nodes do mixed with trial, error, and problem solving to make them. Pic related is the chair seen in the kitchen if your interested in the nodes. honestly though they node graph is a little silly and unnecessary you could probably get something very similar with just a defuse, spec and bump map, I'm just lazy and can't be bothered changing maps for specific models.

My opinion is that you're at a good place right now. You can sculpt/model and you can draw. Basically can nest anywhere from these skills. It's up to you which direction to take but maybe it's a good idea to explore your local market. What jobs are available? Or maybe you're ok with moving to another city/state/county?

- You like to work on cute mobile games ^_^

He already explained that he was using generic texture images. He had to mix and mask them to get the desired results. There is no point in spending the time baking all of that into a single image if you computer has the ram needed to load that many images... The only argument in your favour is that he could have shaved a couple seconds of his frame render times be reducing the amount of image manipulation his shader has to do to get the pixel values. However, like I said, this would only shave seconds of his render times. Is a minute or two of saved time on each frames render worth the hour or so worth of work per object?

First pass on her eye's materials... I seem to have run into an issue with random walk SSS. The model has a couple faces behind her pupil that are coloured pink. I assume these are there to simulate the reflective surface of the back of a human eye. However, those faces are far too close to the front of the eye IMO, and [pic related] evidences that. Its so close that the reflections practically make her pupils glow... I'm probably going to have to switch to using the back faces of the eyeball itself instead of those mesh faces. We'll see if that solves the issue. Maybe I'll mix a blacked out emission shader into the surface to just manually compensate for it. I don't know if masking sections of the models mesh will fuck with the volume scattering of random walk sss

Eyes are a little too red and too dark on edges, looks sick/tired. I think your overdoing the skins roughness, if it was just a little smaller, scaled down pores, more subtle. It might help to have a rectangular light when your doing this to find the specular parts of her face, shes too diffuse and your flat lighting makes it more offputting. Add some gloss to the eyeballs, lips, skin etc.l

>> No.673789

>Eyes are a little too red and too dark on edges
Yeah, Its my current project to fix that. Pretty sure its a problem with random walk SSS not liking intersecting mesh (the eyeball itself and her teeth/jaw are mesh islands that intersect with the main mesh). I'm going to try to fix this by moving them to their own object and turning that object's visibility off for "volume scatter" rays. I'll probably have to Christensen-Burley SSS on the eyes and mouth because of it, but it isn't a huge issue since the mouths isn't super visible and the eyes are smooth enough to not need the detail preservation of Random Walk.

> I think your overdoing the skins roughness
Random Walk can be thanked for that. The detail preservation is wonderfully photoreal.

>It might help to have a rectangular light when your doing this to find the specular parts of her face
I've set her face's material to a specular of .406 which, according to algorithm on the principled shader page of blender's online manual, is the specular setting for a material with an IOR of 1.44... Google told me skin has an IOR of 1.44.

That said, one of the texture images in the pack I am using is labelled as "S." Its a grey scale image that I've assumed to be shininess seeing as the pack doesn't contain any other images concerning roughness or shininess. It doesn't seem to be in line with my first paragraphs assumption of a specular setting of .406 either as its mean value is closer to .3 (although it does have a significant overlap into the .406 range)... Maybe I should go figure out what that texture is supposed to be.

>shes too diffuse and your flat lighting makes it more offputting
My lighting is set up to simulate a cloudy day. Its a little under exposed, but my point wasn't to make her look good. I'm trying to work with natural light so I know if the colours, etc. are correct. I could use an HDRI, I guess, but I don't feel like finding one I like.

Ah, I see what you are saying... I built a couple sliders into my material for exactly that purpose. Its basically just a multiplier for the bump maps. The last pic I posted was the default (intended to be "natural") setting, but I can just crank the slider to 0 if I want to remove them completely.

As for make up, I just don't want to get into it yet, lol. The texture pack has a folder with like 30 masks for all the different places to put make up... I don't even know how to put on real life make up so just learning what each mask is used for is going to be a whole different learning exercise.

Update: it looks like just moving the eyes to a separate object removed their influence from the Random Walk SSS shading. No need to turn off their volume scatter visibility.

Not necessarily, but it doesn't help you to use software with serious limitations for UV mapping, as you have found. You can try the TexTools add-on to have some better tools. It will help you with alignment issues, but afaik it doesn't come with improved flattening/layout algorithms.

Attempt number two is a resounding failure. It also looks like I was half wrong about moving the eyes to a separate object to remove their influence from the Random Walk SSS. It appears to have only shrunk its influence to that sub scale setting sweet spot were the RGB radius's aren't aligned. Its the ting of blue in her "lacrimal caruncle" (the little pink thing at the corner of the eye). I wont be working directly on this issue next, but hopefully my next project will address it by proxy.

I'm not liking the fact that her eyes have double mesh; one for the tears/cornea, and one for the iris/pupil/sclera. Having a pretty much clear, watery layer made from actual mesh seems unnecessary when blender's principled shader has a built in clear coat slider. It also introduces issues with lack of lighting. I can't seem to keep that mesh based clear coat from reflecting all the light that is supposed to be lighting the eyeball itself. Using the clear coat slider in the principled shader doesn't seem to have this issue. I'll probably be masking out everything other then the cornea from mesh based clear coat and just using the principled shader's clear coat. However...

This doesn't entirely address the problem of her dark eyes. SSS doesn't seem to be quite the right effect. I'm not looking to spread the light out. In fact, that appears to be the opposite of what I want. Spreading the light with SSS actually darkens the eyes as a lot of the eye's mesh is hidden insider her body... What I want is for the light to transmit through her eye, be reflected by the faces that intersect her eyeball (the ones I mentioned in an earlier post), and then backlight her eyeball's exterior. This should also solve the tiny issue with Random Walk SSS near the very, very edge of her eye. That issue is caused by a lack of light hitting the the lacrimal caruncle at the parts just inside her eye... Hopefully.

Ah, you're doing what I did a couple months back.
Here are some things you should know that could help to solve your issues:
If you're using Principled Transmission / Glass BDSF on the outer eye mesh: Congrats! You've run into a fundamental flaw of the Cycles render engine. It can't render proper caustics*, meaning it casts shadows. That's likely why your eyes are so dark. You can attempt to remedy this with this method I found: https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/dev/render/cycles/optimizations/reducing_noise.html#render-cycles-reducing-noise-glass-and-transp-shadows
As for your Random Walk SSS troubles, well... it's an inherent issue with Random Walk. It's not one to do with Cycles, even Arnold users face the same issue. Whenever subsurface radius is set to red, very thin parts of your mesh will end up blue. I guess it's got to do with how RGB light transmits under the Random Walk algorithm. (red penetrates the furthest, blue penetrates the least?)
I guess I should post how far I got before I realised learning to make this shit from scratch would be more satisfying and fun than toying with Daz. I never perfected the shading of the eyes, and if you zoom in to the eye you'll notice the Random Walk blue tint on the lacrimals and eyelids.

* - it can, but it requires so much computation that it isn't efficient. You can attempt bruteforcing caustics rendering by bumping up Transmission sampling, but it'll always stay noisy even set in the tens of thousands.

The reason you get blue areas with very high amounts of SSS is because the red light penetrates all the way through the object and comes out the other side, leaving the blue (cyan) light reflecting back to your eyes.

Seeing this effect means you've turned SSS up too high.

Working on a tavern, can't wait to finally have a reason to test out eevees volumetric stuff when I make it all smokey

thanks thats the only part of it I liked making and thought was a good idea

Excuse the tiny image. I accidentally saved over my base render and didn't feel like spending the 15min rerendering a 1024x1024 image.
I ended using your linked doc instead of masking the clear coat mesh. It works a lot better now, thanks.

I also ADDED a translucent shader instead of using SSS on the eye. It solved the issue of blueing in the lacrimal and also added the "red eye" in the pupil that I wanted to preserve. I still have some reading up to do to figure out exactly how adding, as opposed to mixing, a translucent shader into a material effects light rays. Does it duplicate the number of rays or does it apply both effects equally? I know it duplicates for some shaders, but I am not sure exactly how the translucent shader work and its documentation is sparse.

I also want to mask it from the iris, but that's a quick fix. Its currently ruining the grain of the iris, and it'd make sense seeing as the iris wouldn't be as translucent as the white sclera.

this is fun

>> No.674127

you should do lighting full before you start texturing. give everything a gray texture then go hard on lighting

Got a lot of texturing work left to do. Nothing is permanent yet.

is it a brothel?
(just askin for a friend)

>> No.674140

Good shoe. Looks like it goes on a foot or similar appendage, nice shoe.

Probably a tavern/inn that rents beds too.
Or it could be a brothel. Out back where the trough is could be where the whores sleep :^)

It's a tavern

I know you're right, but I was starting to get burnt out on modelling all the little bits and bobs and just wanted to see it with some color to make sure I was going down the right track. Will keep it in mind for next time though. thanks

>> No.674155

I tried to animate a dick in a pussy in blender and I could not for the life of me figure out how to properly do spreading/push pull of the lips. Does anyone know how to do that? I tried softbody physics, cloth sim, jiggle bones, none came out with even a hint of realism. Can anyone share the workflow if you know it?

have you tried going to church and praying to god about it

>> No.674172

I pray everyday, but not for that stuff

Sorry for the delay.
