Blenders sculpting tools are good enough for your purposes anon. Z-brush is only a requirement if you wanna make hyper detailed stuff with like geometric skin texture details and stuff of that nature. Smooth mesh detail like realistic looking surface muscle is well within the scope of blender.

Blenders sculpt tools only weakness is that they can't go very high in polycount so once you start pushing beyond a polycount in the single digit millions you start experiencing issues losing interactive feedback.

Pic related was me learning to sculpt in blender few years back. Stuff up to that type of detail blender is great.

Sorry I started with zbrush so long ago that all the tutorials I watch are unusable, but also it depends what are you going to do, if it's toys/ with articulation there is a few videos I can post, if it's just anime figurines focus on anatomy tutorials, but mostly for the poses and weights (if you know what no mean) I usually make articulated toys but not for coomers so, I can't send you to anything figurine specific, but you can check the threads here, there is always people posting full streams of a guy that makes really good anime waifu shit.

Yes you can import models from zbrush to animate with.
You don't need zbrush though. Zbrush is an amazing program and I love it, but it's autistic as fuck to learn. Blender can do what you want. Sculpting is all skill, so zbrush will still be there when you feel you want to move up to it.

This is so true it's unreal. There are a lot of programs that are complex because they need to be, but zbrush feels like it's deliberately designed to be unintuitive and meant for aliens

>> No.959835

you can learn zbrush in one week by watching pavlovich. All you have to do is learn anatomy

>> No.959837

that's probably because it wasn't designed for what it's used for. It's supposed to be for 2.5D painting, when you're sculpting a model in zbrush, the program thinks you're basically making something like a photoshop brush. That's why they're called tools. There's probably like one person in the whole world who uses it for that.
They can't really change it now though, because artists are used to it and you can customise it a lot, so why bother? I wouldn't want them to change it to try and get new customers and compete with blender. But maybe it would have been smart of them to make zbrush core something like that instead of just a gimped version of zbrush.

No you can't. It's not that difficult and you can get up and running doing basic stuff in a day, but you're not going to fully understand the whole program in less than six months. There's a lot to it.

>> No.959892

>its confusing as fuck for no particular reason.
With zbrush you're going to be doing the exact same task for hours and hours, with something like blender you're usually going to be jumping around a lot or certain features very infrequently. So with blender and programs like it, it makes sense that everything is very easy to find visually. Today in blender I had to create a heat haze effect, never done that before so it involved problem solving and using nodes that I hadn't used before (and a youtube tutorial).
In zbrush that never happens. I use the same tools every time, do the same things, and I'm in the same workspace. I have a custom workspace and custom hotkeys, and over time I refine those. It's very very easy to change my workspace and make it more efficient for me and what I need without having to go through menus.
It makes it harder to get into at first, but over time you appreciate it and understand how practical and efficient it is.
Or maybe I have rose tinted glasses on because I've had to work in other programs for a few weeks and I want to get back to sculpting.
>so hopefully it improves the sculpting experience in some way.
I think there are some minor improvements coming, but it would be impossible for blender to reach zbrush tier.

Dont fucking animate in blender. Sculpt in whatever you want as blender likely has a plugin or default support to import and export the files, but the worthless shitstain of bending and deforming blender does while still not having bones you can properly mesh attach but a bloody loop of 5+ same shit of grouping, parenting, linking, joining and god knows what else they added that does the same fucking thing but doesnt work with something else randomy instead of simple single actions with function toggles in the tools much like how modifiers were mostly fixed from being worthless mess to 80% of advanced things people do.
Realistically, if he doesnt have someone to share workspace and explain base binds (or youtube searches a good one) its the same shit, both have crap default ui and binds and menus that are layered on menus that are redone old menus when everyone didnt know how the fuck to make a program and need custom workspace or either forked version or a cumjar worth of addons respectively to be useful to anyone vaguely human either way.

Specifically when it comes to making decisions on where you put your cloth folds. I noticed when artists create figures from 2d images, they deviate from the original image when it comes to cloth folds.

It's great you're learning about cloth folds. It's really up to the artist how they want their folds to look, but it all starts with learning about basic theory like compression and tension points, to where you have a solid foundation in creating your own.

When sculpting figures from illustrations, you *can* try and match every fold obsessively, but in practice it can quickly become a time sink. It's not to say you can't though. Following the larger and more prominent folds and then employing cloth theory for the details can be more enjoyable for some people, since it gives the 3D artist that extra freedom of expression. Going from an illustration to a 3D space is never going to be 1:1 and there are times where you do need to make certain artistic decisions. Having that foundation in cloth theory will help you recognize where you may or may not want to.

Blender worked decently (once I added more RAM to my rig) but it had one very specific failing: Anime hair.

Usually when you use Zbrush, you do a lower poly export on Maya, Retopology then add the rig system for animation.
Blender has the advantage that you can do all of that in the same program, but usually you do this with characters that wont have a huge amount of detail.
Maya usually used more since there's tons of scripts you can add with MEL/Python unlike Blender, so for making high quality RIGs, its the reason why people still use it.
Blender is great on its own, but to do very "cartoonish" animation, it probably would take more work compared to having a nice rig from Maya from the get go.

secondly, it's going take a lot longer that "1-2 years" for AI to be able to fundamentally understand what it's doing and why, it's not going keep within strict specifications because it has no idea what it's actually making models for.
and the worst thing is that the people who are going to be using it won't even understand this problem, they're going to be perfectly happy with whatever horrible, unoptimized mesh is generated for them, and proudly use them for whatever half-baked hustle that's popular at the moment.

There's some sculptors who use Blender and some who use Zbrush.
Zbrush is more common and not because of it's more pleasant use-experience (Zbrush's is infamously weird) but due to some fancy hacks that allowed more polys on screen, not sure if this is still an issue in blender or not.

That said 99% of huge animu tiddie models are just down to your 3D sculpting skills and not the software so just use whichever works. If the tool becomes an impediment then switch to the other one.

>> No.963898

nayrt but basically every single face in the game looks horrendous.
People were actually trolling by making a custom made character in the character editor that was actually passable in looks and modded it into the regular game as an NPC.
I think they even gave it the job description "damage control specialist" when you targeted them just for kicks.

>> No.963901

>not sure if this is still an issue in blender or not.
It's never been an issue for 99% of projects, Zbrush sculptors are just autists who think they need ten gorillion polygons when really anything above 1-3 mil is overkill, unless you're working on like a marvel movie
You shouldn't need anywhere near that much for an anime coom figurine and a majority of other solo projects
The reason Zbros think they need that is because they're tech illiterate artists that can't optimize for shit, the software was designed from the ground up to provide as close a claysculpting experience as you can get on a PC, if you know how to optimize your models and don't just add polygons as a universal solution to all problems you'll never need 10% of what zbrush can physically handle

Not to say the workflow isn't valid, it absolutely is. It's easier, if anything. But again, you don't -need- even 10% of what zbrush offers if all you want to do is make something simplistic like anime coom models

>Multiple 3D porn artists have told me to use Daz 3d models for scultping.
>Can anyone explain how that works?
Daz is an easy way to get base meshes that are pretty advanced compared to starting with a blockout doll but yes, like you say;
Unless you want your shit to look like generic porn ads with those terrifying uncanny valley 3d bimbos, you do have to do a lot of personal retouching on those models to make them look actually good.
>Do you have to retopologize it?
If you just want to have a static picture then no, it's not -necessary- because you can hack a pose together and it'll just work. If you want to animate / print / import into game engine, yes.
Daz models in general actually have usable topology even for animation, but if you're going to significantly sculpt ontop of them, you'll probably need to retopo.
>And how tf do boob/pussy/lips physics work?
You have to set that up manually, either through simulation or manual bone animation. Boobs / dicks are simple, pussy / mouth less so because it stretches, but still doable with some practice.
>Do you have to make a sculpt from scratch to apply those physics or do you just choose an area of the model?
Depends on the quality of the original model but more often than not you'll need to at least manually adjust it to be functional

I'd like to make a basemesh library for Zbrush with different size of characters. Any tips on how to tackle that? I was thinking of making all limbs each in a separate subtool and group and then make them dense enough to be easily editable (proportions wise) but I tried once a few months ago and failed horribly cause the subtools were hard to handle and edit into different characters.

>> No.967088
File: 672 KB, 3000x1500, body_proportion_2.jpg [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google]

each base mesh should be its own project. head, upper/lower torso, upper/lower arms, upper/lower legs, hands, feet, should each be seperate subtools. you can then load the desired subtools into a new project.
if you are a beginner i would suggest not relying on basemesh as you will miss out on valuable opportunities to practice and learn proportion and human anatomy. create a number of characters from scratch, and then when you are more competent you can use your previous projects as base meshes.

always the same method Nurbs Path for the hair string and Bezier Circle for the shape
but what I was missing for me its they always transform the Nurbs Path into mesh and again into curve, with this method you gain very precise control on the hair string.
better explained on this vid youtube/Ng8FbOHvsLQ
another video with other method I didn't test yet files.cat box.moe/qt8r1a.mp4

some people use the same mesh they are working on and select 2-3 edges then separate and convert to curve. Also is important for me at least maintain the normal direction or the curve like in picrel to avoid weirs tilts and better control

In my opinion Wandah is a good sculptor but i feel he usually doesnt explain enough why he is using the tools at the moment or what the tools actually does so it could be confusing at times if you dont have previous knowledge.

On the contrary I first did this course >>959670 >>967719 and now im doing wandahs >>976504 and Im sure I would have been a bit lost if I had not done the first one.
As a fellow beginner I would recommend you to do the first course if you are not in a hurry and have patience since the guy slowly builds up a custom interface while explains the basic tools of zbrush. https://www.3dconceptartist.com/The-Ultimate-ZBrush-Guide-course
If not you can still brute force Wandah course.

>> No.977752

it's too advance if you've had zero experience with zbrush. learn zbrush for a week, doesn't take long, then you'll be ready.
if there are things in the course you don't understand, repeat that part of the course. his explanations for things are a little rough in places, but nothing you shouldn't be able to learn just by copying what he does.

after the course you won't magically become good at character sculpting but should have a good understanding of the process. the main thing to learn from following a course is the ability to be able to replicate what you see with accuracy, ensuring the proportions and anatomy look correct, these things take a lot of time, always refining your sculpt as you work and getting a feel for what looks right, the more you do it the more it becomes second nature, you are training your eyes - your ability to see if something looks right or wrong, this is important for sculpting from image reference.

so from the course you are not learning zbrush, it is a lot more than that. this is why i say you should not start the course with zero experience of the software.

I guess you have watched a lot of it, you could finish the rest of the course(Chapters 8, 9 and 10 dont feel necessary) by just watching the video at 1.5 or 2 speed and continue with wandah.

I'm planning on commissioning some local to 3d print my animu figure. I made the 3d model on my own but I'm clueless when it comes to 3d printing.

I have quick questions when dealing with resin:

1. If I were to sand it, how would I deal with the particles that potentially flow across the room? I'm thinking of just sanding my shit outside my backyard.
I also know about dabbing the sand paper into water to reduce dust particles. But are there any other safety rules to follow? I don't want resin AIDs stuck inside my body forever.

2. Figures have this gray color during prototype phase, do people usually paint over them or do some resin come in the gray colors naturally?

I'm still decimating and adding booleans blocks onto my model. It's my first time printing so I'll go through the mistakes and fuck ups.

1. Just being outside while sanding should be enough, but to be sure, you can buy a simple mask that filters particles from the air for the duration of this activity, just for your own mental peace.
2. From what I have seen, all resin models are hand-painted.

I've painted and sanded a few 3d printed figures before so I can field some of your questions.

1) Unless you live in a wind tunnel gravity will eventually settle these particles and they'll basically merge with the dust that naturally accumulates around living things. People recommend masks but honestly I never wore them while sanding, just while painting. You'll need a respirator if you decide to airbrush your figures (And anything larger than 3.5" really needs an airbrush) so it's not a bad investment either way if you're really afraid of resin. Dabbing sandpaper in water before sanding is called wet sanding and I don't recommend doing it all the time. You'll need to at least start with a decent grit dry sanding session. From there, refine the surface you're sanding with higher and higher grit paper and/or wet sand until you're satisfied. After that, apply a surfacer like Mr. Surfacer 1000. This will act as a primer and fill in the surface scuff marks that sanding creates.

2) Most resin is gray in my experience, and you can get primers that are almost any color. I personally prefer working with clear primer on white resin but I have a background in painting injection molded figures that are typically made with white resin, so that's probably just preference. Remember though that the original color of your model/primer acts as the base color of your paint job. So a black primer works best for darker top coats, light primer works best for lighter top coats, etc. If you have to choose just one, go for a white or light gray primer because it's easier to cover than a dark gray or black primer.

Good luck on your project, painting garage kits isn't easy but the results are worth it.

Yeah right now I'm planning out how to cut up the model. Then I add my booleans, unify the pegs, then decimate the whole thing.
I'm studying other models on how they've broken up stuff, and looking back at the zunko tutorial.
I decided to just do the best I can and be open to mistakes.

thanks for the info fren.

One last thing I forgot to ask: After using the boolean modifier with the pegs, should I downscale the peg so that it will fit into the model?
Do you guys do that, or do you just cut/sand the peg after printing it so it'll fit into the hole.

>> No.979627

Always add a slight scale/inflate for resin tolerance before doing the boolean then shrink it back down afterwards (or shrink it after the boolean). Every printer will bloat resin slightly even with perfect settings. I hate it when tolerances aren't considered by artists that don't own printers.
Also consider tapering all of your keys a little.

>> No.979636

Not experienced enough with slicing stuff for 3D printing to answer your question but in my experience the biggest problem with my 3D printed figure projects was that the pegs were usually bad. They usually weren't a snug fit, even after generous nipping/sanding and in a few cases I had to snap the peg off, sand the nub down, then attach the limbs via copper wire. I usually pin garage kits like this anyway but the peg removal was a pain. Also as a general warning, don't do the thing in >>979615 where you put two pieces in the same hole. Just make multiple holes instead, minimizes the chance of weak tolerances causing failure, and also contains that failure to one piece if it does happen. For that type of haircut you might also consider making it all one piece.

Just give yourself some room for your printer to fuck up, you can always use a little putty or two-part epoxy to fill in gaps, but if something is too big it's a much bigger pain.

yes although sculpting isn't the only way to do it. a lot of people learn sculpting and nothing else and wind up using sculpting as a crutch when other approaches can be easier to create smooth shapes. i've generally never found sculpting useful in modeling the human part of a figure at the lower poly stage
