Lol. Of course they do. The necks are kind of my safe net. They come with the base I made. From the start it looks normal but as I carve into the model, the head just ends up smaller and smaller and the base is not even important once I combine it with the body. I never care much about the neck, chest anatomy (even took out the chest because people complained about clavicles not being there). I know every move is good practice but it is also time wasted when you have a particular goal.

Does not in the slightest have a passing resemblance.
It's like you didn't even use your reference. Look at the width of the mouth on Portman, now look at yours. It's way too wide. They're also way too thick you've got some negro lips on her. It's also way too far up. Eyeballs are way too large and slightly too far apart. Ears stick out from the skull really far. Skull overall is slightly too long, and you've got a giraffe neck. Ayyyy lmao.

Actually pretty close. But there's a lot off once you go below the eyes. Hell the eyes are even wrong. The nigga's eyes are crooked in all the references. I honestly never noticed it until now, but it's definitely there. Maybe they're not actually crooked, but his left eyelid definitely is lower than the right, and he's got a bit of a lazy eye going. Which is making them look tilted. Nose is slightly too wide, and the tip droops down a bit more in the ref, which makes is nostrils less pronounced. His skull shape is too short as well. Pay attention to your ratios.

In both references all your lines and wrinkles are way too pronounced making them look like wrinkly goblins.

My best advice is to learn to draw heads if you're gonna make an effort to sculpt actual people. You don't have to be the greatest, but it's a really good way to see different ratios in the face, how they break down, and what makes someone look the way they look. They don't have to be finished pieces, just some construction lines to help get you started. You'll be able to compare that to the reference. Because right now, while you have some understanding of anatomy, you don't seem to really know why you're doing it. Learning the rules on how to draw heads and faces will really help you, and it will really help you to sculpt people that don't exist as well.

I think I am getting the face. Don't mind the neck. It is just there as placeholder. It will be merged with the body to it will look normal. I use a base and carve into it so the head gets smaller when I shape it and hence the long nondetailed neck.
I get all the small imperfections and the fact that I try to carve in detail and make them look like drained old people. I hope to get it right soon. I am definitely better than last week. Last week I was afraid to use reference.

Maybe start with Loomis "Fun With a Pencil". If you're not into the Loomis meme though, check around /ic/ for other material. Vilppu Drawing Manual is popular around there. If you're into videos check out Proko.
Just because you drew comics doesn't mean you've learned any fundamentals on how to construct figures. Especially if you've just jumped right in and skipped the basics. You don't need to be able to draw to do 3d, but drawing and learning how to construct figures will help you a lot.

I think reading a few of those books and taking some time to apply it will really help you.

ye, the standard alpha nr 6, the round one with soft edges, its much better for clay buildup

Dosnt create those ugly strokes that you then have to smooth out, it speeds you up and creates better more natural forms

just checked the "new" rake, and its just as shitty as old one, a 2d projection "rake" is not a rake, the purpose or rake is to remove a bit of clay, smoothing and for surfacing, the zbrush one does nothing they clay brsuh dosnt do better by itself

Re-did the trim sheet completely. Turned out way better this time. I had to add a slight slant to any faces that were perpendicular to the camera. The reason the last version didn't turn out very well is because those faces didn't show up on the normalmap and ended up making everything look really flat.

In any case, normals are way more defined than the last iteration. I ended up learning a bit more about how they work and how to manipulate them better.

Naah. There is a difference between an argument and the act of arguing. I think each one of us proposed an argument but they have to be supported by facts to win the argument. Arguing comes from people being unreasonable and making up facts. In this case, we are both right but the difference is he said it shouldn't be visible like it is law. I just said, it isn't. See, we are both proposing arguments and we can both be right. The part that is not right is ignoring the other half of the truth (my part). This can escalate into the act of arguing.

>> No.680246

Yeah. So do what you like as long as it is aesthetically pleasing. Honestly. You don't get off to 2D and stylized 3D because of correct anatomy. It is the attraction to curves and the pose itself. The pose is hugely important. Most of the stylized 3D models look like freaks in t-pose and a-pose and when you say; bend them over or make their butt protrude, they take on another shape. There is also that atraction to the momentum of the figure and that is very important for a statue or figurine.

What surface anatomy is visible and emphasized varies greatly from person to person determined by both their genetics and level of fitness.
Just because you can't see certain muscles on most people doesn't mean they're not visible on others.
It's unusual for everyday people to have strong defined necks since we as urbanites don't put our heads under a lot of tension.
But look at boxers, dancers, racecar drivers and others that put a lot of force on their necks and you'll commonly see those features in both men and females.

Remember it's also very unusual to find a person that is carved like a greek statue where all the anatomical landmarks are clearly defined.
Photo models that show those landmarks in anatomy books often put tension on their muscles and pose themselves into positions where it becomes visible at the surface.
Basing your overall anatomy on how they exist in a specific real world specimen rather than a sum of what you see in some anatomy atlas tend to give more coherent results.

>> No.680264

That is actually a very key thing to understand, esp in 3D where formalized skeletons are kinda being pushed down our throats to some degree.
Since it's easier to have all the characters in a game for example share the same bones (simplifies motioncapture greatly).

But we don't all have the same skeleton. There are big differences in the angles of how bones connect, their ratios
and even the number of vertebrata in various section of the spine depending on where the bones fuse together as we mature.

These differences are ofc most different depending on the gender, but there is also a great range of variation mongst phenotypes of the same sex.
Like say you have a total 'babe' type female with the perfect ass, no amount of exercise nutrition or even surgery can make an everyday woman look like that
because the angle at which her hipbone and her lumbar connects makes the back arch out at a different angle as she stands in a neutral pose.

If you just reshape the geometry suspended from the bones to look what you want it'll look fine for the rig pose, but soon as it moves
it'll start falling apart because them rigged volumes do not rotate from the correct position within that volume.

>> No.680265

We do all have the same skeleton, or bones at least. The only vertebrata that vary in number are in the tailbone. Only the proportions change, and bones used in cg can also change proportion. Bones only store rotations and hierarchy in relation to each other, bone length and position can and are often changed between various characters in games. Heck you can use the Bip rig, which is a biped by definition for quadrupeds if you really want to. The reason game characters look the same is Because they're all just edits from the same base mesh, and usually all have the exact same geometry and unwraps. That way they only really need to be skinned once.

The anatomy. There is none. You can't just ignore it and pretend that everything is going to turn out just fine.

No matter how many layers of armor and detail you throw at this model, it's going to look like 3 midgets in a suit of armor until you fix it.

Maybe something in the scene to give a sense of how high it is. Something a viewer can recognize and know from a glance how high it is.

oh lala very nice anon. Congrats on your first. I would think about the design of the machinery more in your next model, it looks a bit stiff from how your joints limit its movement. need more cylinders to convey motor movement. Also, the stylish thing to do nowadays is to make large parts of your mech be simple, like big armor plates, with a just a few detailed exposed mecha bits. Yours feels too noisey cause hes got lots of detail mech bits all over and his armor looks like a gaming pc case with angles for no reason. Your guy is also awkward cause his legs look heavier than the body, could support a much bigger cannon with legs like those

If you're looking to get hired, the most important thing right now is to have a good body of work that shows your skills on a technical and artistic level. An employer won't care if you say you took 4hrs on a portfolio model or not. All they care about is whether or not it looks good. When you actually get hired, then you can worry about saving time and working at speed.

Car paint is kind of a weird material. It's got sharp reflections, but it's also somewhat diffuse as well. Try playing around with a clearcoat material on top for the sharp reflections, and a more diffuse material underneath. If you're using Blender, then just use the clearcoat slider on the Principled shader with a low roughness, and then the regular roughness somewhere in the middle.
Right now it just looks like it's covered in glitter or something like a Christmas ornament.

Its quite a heavy asset with ~30 2K UDIMs. I can change the paint job but it will take me some time, but i am willing to spent some more time on it, probably doing more than one environment with more than one paint job.

too big for one, you do not have any such strong stylizations anywhere else on the body, stands out instantly
eye texture is petty bad, the pupil cutoff is too sharp, whites look grey due to bad material or bad texture, edges of eyes lack color, the inside of eyelids have no color
you ignored the most important part of the face, fuck up the eyes and whole thing will look worse
or if you wanna that animu face its time to round things up on the face, smaller lips and round cheeks
also could use so eye shadow

If you don't know what to do, then you obviously have no references. Use more references. Get inspiration, rip off, do variants, do whatever to get your (internal) shape library more complex.
The more you take from others or reality the more your brain becomes able to create forms from nothing. Its a learning process, you want to be able to do booleans and other mesh operations in your minds eye.
