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!

If it's just a bust/likeness and it won't be animated that means the topology is far less important than if it's supposed to be rigged. Placing your UV seams is 10x more important than the rest of the edge flow.

Yeah, that's fair. I'm aiming to be a game artist so input on edge flow would be appreciated since it will be a portfolio piece.

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.

I forgot about that fuck, that one is good too because it'll let you see the model. As for MMD, you can export the models to obj using the English PMX editor (free) and then import it to whatever 3d program you're comfortable with.

I use pinterest mostly because there's a a bunch of 3d tips like pic related, and you don't have to slog through twitter's shitty site and slog through food pictures of some nip's blog until you can find one 3d tutorial/wip from him.
