Maybe I should ask /beg/ about this instead but I was doing this Android 18 head for practice and I'm getting this odd phenomenon where attempting to shade smooth the head mesh where for whatever reason, Blender is automatically marking certain edges as sharp. On the mirrored part it shows up as these bad looking artifacts. Adding a subdivision surface makes it 10x worse, the artifacts turn into these huge cracks and ridges sticking out of the face. Does anyone know why this is happening? I thought my topology was alright, but it keeps re-appearing even if I manually mark these edges as smooth.

Attempted to add hair. I really don't like it but I suppose the point of practice is to experiment and try new things to see if they work. My method of trying to use planes to draw a general outline and then add hair curves on top of it really didn't work and I'm sure there's an easier way to get the effect of stranding that her hair has while still maintaining the sense of volume and layering.

>>980408
Hm, I don't have a Normals tab under my data section for that object. Is it only available for certain objects? I made this head starting with a single vertex and then extruded it out following the reference image before filling the gaps by connecting the eyes, mouth, nose, etc. Or do I have to enable something from a menu?

>>980415
>>980423
Yeah I know that much but I was worried if I made her head any larger she's start to look like an alien instead of an Android. I guess with certain characters you really have to push the anatomy. Any good rule of thumb for how much a head should "extrude" into hair? Especially for anime girls I feel like it's substantial but my instincts always tell me that their hair is just really big as opposed to their skulls. Not sure if that's correct or not though.

Honestly for printable figurines and sculpts you don't have to worry much about clean topo. If you were making anime models for vrchat or similar it would be a different story. But for 3d printing what you see is what you get and if it prints out in the shape you want it too then you've done it correctly.
As for your question, I don't have any specific blender tutorials in mind, I only work in zbrush sorry

I guess it's less topology that I'm worried about and more the fundamentals of sculpting and translating human anatomy into 3d models broadly and anime girls specifically. I have some experience with painting garage kits and posing so I understand the basics of a nice figure, but getting the actual 3D modeling aspect of figure creation is proving to be an enigma. Like I'll watch someone create a basic mesh, then do a hundred seemingly minor adjustments and get a really appealing body/head. And while I can get to a pretty similar place when it comes to making the base mesh, making those adjustments to really polish the model eludes me. I guess I just don't know what I should be looking for beyond a vague idea of "Make it look better".

Thanks. I'm trying to look up more specific fundamental-based tutorials on constructing heads/bodies for sculpting but I'm running into an issue where I can only really find workflows. So instead of learning WHY a skilled modeler would make dozens or even hundreds of small adjustments to the face or body, I'm learning the HOW and WHAT of making a face in Blender and they're fast-forwarding through the adjustments phase without explaining anything. It's kind of frustrating, I remember watching one guy talk in-depth about mapping out the facial geometry (Which I already knew how to do) and then hand-waving the fine tuning process with something like "Just keep nudging verts until you're happy with what it looks like".

I think I'll look into more traditional 2d art explanations of anatomy, since understanding that and stylizing it is how you would make an anime character in a pen/paper medium, so I imagine most of that understanding transfers over. At the very least I know that the muscle and bones of the body create the structure under the skin, so it might just be a matter of getting enough practice in that I just "get" how everything should look when put together. But man, blindly grinding heads/bodies seems like I run the risk of learning the wrong lessons.

I think I get it. The area around the eyes should be more recessed, and it kind of curves into that area of the skull shape. I think my mesh has a bit of the "mask face" when "doll face" would be more appropriate because of the way I made the base mesh. I'll keep that in mind for the future since I definitely want to have a more 3D look. I'm aiming to one day make 3D printed figures after all.

Haven't had much time to work on 3d stuff but I did finish the body sculpt. I think it turned out pretty good for the most part, but I feel like the hands sculpt got way too detailed. For one the voxel size made my computer chug a little and it became hard to really smooth out all the details leading to something of a lumpy look. I'll probably try raw poly modeling hands in the future and then try to convert them to fit the body mesh. I'll post a picture of the backside next.

Probably not. I originally got into this with the idea that I could 3D print these models and then assemble/paint them IRL. I'm a garage kit painter and I recently came into a really high quality elegoo resin printer so I'm only going to bother with sculpting/posing, all the "texturing" work will be done in the real world.

That said the "lumpiness" of some of the parts of the sculpt does bother me and I'm not exactly sure how to smooth it out. For the face I imagine it's an issue where the topology isn't even enough across the surface, but for the other body parts I'm not sure. If you have any advice on how to fix it I'll gladly take it.

>> No.981616

I think I see what you mean, but can I ask a few further questions?

1) Why is it exactly that the loops marked in blue are better than the ones I have now? Looking at the counterexample face I agree that the topology is much cleaner and it looks a lot nicer, but rather than trying to just go for rout copying in the future, I'd like to understand why those loops are the way they are. What makes them more suited to anime specifically?

2) For the red circled area, what do you mean by smoothing? Like it's too recessed (Causing the upper cheeks to cast a shadow over it) and it needs to be brought out more? Or is it that there's too much geometry and it's cluttering the head unnecessarily?

3) What's the issue with the triangle and the diamond? I know that, topologically speaking, triangles aren't good because they don't effectively deform when the model is posed. Are diamonds the same way or is it just that specific diamond near the mouth? Are some triangles permitted where the model won't be deforming much, or are there deeper reasons for removing them?

Sorry if these are annoying questions but I'd really like to get some more understanding of the issues I'm facing.

1. They make deformation and sculpting better and easier, you can also make adjustments easier when you select the loops.

2.Yes, ideally I would first delete that loop in the middle and see if the others can be properly connected into better loops, since you are using sudivision it is also easier to tweak them.

3. the triangle under the eye which could be removed in favor of some loops and quads, what I learned myself is how these areas shape up the cheeks as well, otherwise we end up with very flat faces, the diamond in that area may give you some weird results, my example also has it but as you can see it flows differently, when in doubt just triangulate a face and see how it will deform.

Increase the cheek bones to create those cheek curves typical anime heads have.

Pic related should help you out; the blue lines are what we see as the contour/outline of the face. But the cheek lines (which are part of the facial outline of your anime character head in the 3/4 view) is more 'hidden' in the full front view.

Looking at this, looking at the models already posted. I was going to make a comment about this, but I wanted to first take my own advice.
A common problem I'm seeing is making the cranium way too small. Anime girls need lots of skull room for their big eyes and crazy hair. When you're modelling a brand new bald character it looks wrong to your eyes because the hair does so much to frame the face.
I Made this mesh a while ago but it was too detailed and didn't "look anime". This is after I've smoothed away a lot of details I had sculpted and moved her brow ridge another 30% lower on the face and from there the nose line down maybe half that. The hair and the textured one is just to see how it would look in context. That's not an actual face texture I intend to use.

To do this. I made a nurbs circle and placed it about where I wanted the ponytail to come out, duplicated it and used maya's "live surface" to move the CVs of the circle onto the scalp in the irregular shape it needed to be.
Then I lofted between the 2 curves, and extracted another loop out of the middle of the surface. I adjusted the CVs of that middle loop to be in a better spot, then lofted another surface on all 3 loops and did the same thing 1 more time.

Hey thanks for all the advice, I think I know what to do but as I was working on the face mesh it seemed difficult to get the desired result and I think it's mostly because my facial geometry is crowded. Rather than keep trying to correct it I think I'll just make a new one from scratch. Part of that is also because for some reason trying to add a rigify human mesh results in not much happening, so hopefully a clean slate will fix that too. I wanna try a better method of modeling hair, hands, and faces too.

I see that this thread has accumulated a lot of nice reference images, but does anyone have any character references? It seems difficult to find T or even A pose reference sheets for a lot of anime characters, but I guess I could always make due with front/side facing screenshots

Studying anatomy, particularly facial anatomy diagrams, will probably help you out. Faces in general are patchworks of fat bumps, dozens of different overlapping muscle groups, and the underlying skull structure. One thing to keep in mind too is that anime faces are often "perfect" in the sense that while they have variance in cheekbone height, facial fat, and overall skull shape, they lack the flaws inherent to normal human faces like wrinkles, smile lines, sallow cheeks, etc. Anime faces are almost universally youthful and feminine, unless the character is specifically old/very masculine, in which case you might get something like pic related. Soriz here from Granblue Fantasy is supposed to be old and very fit/lean, so his facial muscles and skull shape shine through along with a healthy amount of wrinkling. You basically want the opposite of this but this face is still worth studying as it has a lot of anatomical roadmaps from it.

For this part in particular you're modeling a very stylized version of someone's cheekbones, the ridge around their nose/mouth, the upper chin area, and the buccal region of the cheek. It's mostly muscle, but the important thing to remember is that everyone has a fat pad right under their eye socket and to the left/right of their nose. You can feel this on your own face, it's the soft, pliable skin on that region before it starts to stretch out on it's way to your mouth and jawline. This patch of fat is also why your face puffs out below your eyes and while it doesn't go out as far as your forehead, the principle is similar. Just remember, you're not bucking anatomy but heavily stylizing it, so when in doubt look at a facial muscles chart. Most faces have very little fat and the muscles/bone are responsible for the deformation.

Compared to the west, they have very high-level, high-quality books that teach them how to draw anime and how to model anime in blender, so i would make sense.

Now to my eyes that does not look like good topology, but I can see in the renders he is using a flattening shader. There's a whole other side to "modelling anime" thing that involves shaders that ignore the creative meches one must make in order to make the shapes that way they need to be.

>Most importantly, is it good?
I'm looking and right away it is not repelling my senses, which is good. I have my own taste when it comes to the face ratios. The back of the mandible ought to be closed to the ear but it doesn't look bad. We really need to see it with a shader though.

By shader I meant how it looks like with the really good looking pro 3d anime that they use special materials that mimic 2d rendering to different degrees. If for instance you used a material the shaded the mesh with completely flat colors the normals along the cheeck and jaw areas of the face will not come into play. All that will matter is that the edges are in the right spot to create the proper illusion from certain angles.
If the mesh is being rendered with full 3d lighting then the normals in that area become very delicate.
It is a good looking anime face.

And then I see these 2 highlights on the far side of the mouth and under the eye. If it were my project I'd call these problems, and Id fix them by making the face details even more smooth and round, but I am pretty sure there are anime styles that include highlights like that.
So this is probably the best advice. We all need to pick a particular look to emulate. What's wrong and what's right will be determined by the source. Copying master work is exactly how the japanese learn art. You want your art to look japanese. Copying japanese art burns the candle at both ends. Find some good looking examples from an anime or manga that you want your model to look like. Pick a particular character and a few scenes with their face at key angles. Then make your model look like it as closely as you can.

She does have a nose, its just hidden by the shaders at that angle. I feel i kinda like that look but ill explore that more.
From the profile i think i can for sure see the eyes need lowering a bit and what about the brow line? should it be sticking out a touch more? I think i really struggle with that "shape" above and around the eyes.

even when directly facing the viewer, you still get a tiny indication of a nose. it's honestly pretty rare to get absolutely no nose in a normal pose. sometimes it disappears when making an exaggerated face or with a very specific style though.

you have edge loops outlining certain details so they deform better, and those loops have to terminate somewhere. On a shape as complex as the face there isn't always good places. So you either have poles where more than 4 edges converge, or have tris embedded in your quads in certain places.

Here's my first attempt at making hair below 3k with the first video during last weekend, though i hand painted the texture myself with the basic blender paint tools since i don't know yet how nodes works. No shader going on here but lot of draw and smear tool involved.
Are there any addons that allows me more drawing tools on blender similar to photoshop at some extent? I just think painting texture on the 3D model itself within Blender is very fun but i saw a lot of videos just using nodes and photoshops, i fear my way is kind alien, especially for "anime" style.

Because texture painting in Blender is shit. You are better off learning Substance Painter. Substance can be obtained through same sources as Photoshop (e.g., m0nkrus).

hi anons i recently picked up 3d animation and managed to trudge my way through the blender donut tutorial and now i feel a little bit lost on what to do next. obviously i learned some stuff from the tutorial but its one thing to make a simple 3d object by watching someone do it for you step by step compared to making your own 'thing'. im really interested in low poly ps1 style aesthetic and anime and ideally i would like to design some scenes / characters with that aesthetic in mind but im feeling a bit lost on what to do next.. any helpful tips for beginners or youtube series would be greatly appreciated. ive been looking for more noob friendly tutorials i can follow along with to get a better grasp of blender because i still dont feel confident enough to venture off into the wild and do my own thing yet.

Seems like might be worth it then. I pretty much just want it to be able to paint this kinda stuff. I could do it in CSP, but as someone whos learning 3d still I really feel like it would be better if i can paint onto the model directly (minus the eyelids animations since i doubt substance has support for animated uvs?)

>> No.985840

>>985839
there's no point buying it when adobe is going to drop support and make you use a worse version with features taken away unless you do a monthly sub so you may aswell pirate
also texture painting for that level of low poly can easily be done using blender's texture painting

>> No.985841

>>985840
Like, features in the version I buy will stop working...? As long as it retains the feature set it has now seems like a decent deal to me. The thing i really like is that substance seems to have layers, which I use a lot of in CSP for general drawing. Blenders texturing didnt seem to have it.

>>985839
>Like, features in the version I buy will stop working...?
Yes that's what it means on the steam page when it says support will end after 2024
Adobe will take away any features that involve their services unless you pay their monthly sub so you'll only have the offline version available so at that point you may as well pirate

You're right that SP has a better layering system as it's designed purely for texturing but blender does have a basic one with how you use slots, uvs, and the node system which is more than fine for that level of low poly

You can use SP and be fine so feel free to ignore my post but you'll be doing the same thing as blender anyway as that style of low poly is just assigning all separate objects their own material slot + base color, marking the uvs and then you just paint on the model or uvs directly and optionally use something like photoshop/gimp for the face + eyes as you'll need to make a sprite sheet for expressions since you won't be modelling eyes and mouth

SP shines best for higher poly and sculpts because at that level you want extremely high detail which is also what most anons ITT are doing which is why you see many posts about SP but even something like 5k-10k poly is good for SP for anime style but blender still works fine for that too

You should do some research to see how people texture paint in blender so you can better understand when to use blender vs SP for texturing

it happened because the grease pencil modifier is mapped to your active camera
a workaround is to lock the camera to your view so it updates the lineart when you move, but you won't be able to use grease pencil if you're exporting it out of blender anyway

Realistically doesn't matter. They're both tools, use whichever allows you to achieve your desire result better. I use blender for hard surface because I could never get into zmodeler, but anything organic I do in zbrush. Always end up doing retopo/rigging/render in blender though.
