Hi, guys, I recently started to design some furniture, where i have to incorporate some acanthus leaf designs.

The problem is, that i have no clue on how I should go about this. Normally I use Autocad for furniture design and Zbrush for more organic stuff. But the problem I am running into is, that I have no idea, how to make a one of those retarded scroll patterns in Zbrush. There are basically 2 options:

A) Use Zmodeler: Most scroll designs are pretty complex, so it is going to be an ass load of work doing all the detail work in zmodeler.

B)Using Brushes: Also going to be pretty hard, due to lots of semi hard surfaces and geometry that is derived from specific chisel shapes, that has to stay consistent throughout everything, flowing into each other.

So my idea was to block out the basic shapes, by using either masking and extruding or zmodeler and then working in the details with normal brushes. I have made it past the first step ezpz, but I can't seem to work in stuff, like the outer and inner curves on the leaves, since they are such a shitty mix of organic and hard surfaces.

I am not that bad at Zbrush (can make basic stuff like assets for video games and animals), but I have been trying for two days now and i can never get this shit to look right. On top of all that, my file got corrupted when Zbrush crased today and now I am srsly thinking about just throwing my tablet out the window.

So, what brushes would you guys use to make pic related?

Play it in slo-mo if you can't keep up.
I can timelapse just fine. That's not the problem, m8.
this is stupid, just use the sculpt tool with dynamesh on.

How is this made
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
Thanks for the answer I thought it was a 3d model desu
My guess is compositing software to warp the layers. You can typically import layers from photoshop to nuke and break it up like >>630396
After effects is probably worth a shot too. I dont use it but its good for motion graphics Ive heard.

There is definitely more than just 2D layers. The main character turns his head way too much to just be transformation/deformation

The character looks to the left at one point and it shows way too much rotational detail to just be 2D deforming, if it is then it must be an insane number of elements.

I think this is done the same way Blizzard has been doing WoW and Diablo login screens since 2010, it's basically 95% 2D with a couple 3D details (like the head) within and made to look completely seamless through very careful matching of the 2D elements with the edges of the 3D ones.

You can see this being done for the Mists of Pandaria login screen in the making of video they made for that expansion.
LOL 2D rigging so dumb

Actually they removed that to appease game "journalists" and marxists that control fighting game events in the USA.
Can someone teach me how to properly weight the knees in PMX editor.
Look at existing mmd models and google "how do i weight paint"
The only video on it has a guy mumbling under loud background music
During the knee part he completely skips over it because his model has something on the knee that doesn't bend.

All other resources are in moonrunes.
It's early beta footage. Those weights can easily be fixed.

Seems reasonable enough

Yes, of course you can, but it is illegal for some games

Im at the point where I can sculpt models that I like but sadly Im sucking huge dicks when it comes to wrapping and texturing. I read a lot of stuff about "generating your textures" and "making them from photos" but for real I can not find Any good tut on youtube about MAKING textures. Only Tutorials I find is about using all kinds of maps. Pic releated its a paint booth which I just cant texture right Even if I spent days unwrapping it normally.
Pic releated its the paint cabin.
Any Help appreciated.

Im aiming for realism here or at least really close. Well I know the basics of uvmapping and how to set thelayers. But working in gimp or any kind of direction how to create textures in gimp is an unknown domain since I always just slapped downloaded diffuse so far.
you mean "creating textures" then?
get substance designer then, its what you want for creating textures.
if you like cycles and want to keep it simple and modest do something like this.

if you think this is tedious, just wait until you use designer. this is hard work
susbtance painter or quixel ddo
try this

If I already have 3D-Coat Amateur, and I plan on re-topologizing everything in Maya before I sell it, is there any real legal point to upgrading to 3D Coat pro?

Just wondering because the upgrade is on sale for like $220 or something right now. If I get it I'll have only paid $290ish in total.

This. I seriously don't understand how people can go to Steam & others when CGPeers and GFXPeers have constant discounts, up to 100% of retail price.
you can boast to your e-friends how much of a l33t modeller you are and show off your steam achievements(lmao)
on a side note steam has regional prices and loads of discounts so in my place substance pack costs normally only 42$ instead of 249$ on their site and right now they have it with summer sale price which brings even further down to 28$

Don't expect a lot of hospitality here, this has been the nicest thread I've seen in months
cc0textures has some free textures you can use
substance designer to make your own. Substance painter to texture models with a procedural workflow.

No, but if you know where I can get a working .pmx importer for Metasequoia 4 or the current version of blender(there are imports for older versions only)...

>Any advice or thoughts?

less mesh, more texture.
>more texture
On what and why?
Asking because OP is trying to emulate anime. Cel-shaded and generally not much detail in skin, clothes and hair. OP could literally go with zero textures and just use submeshes as far as emulating the style goes.
Arcsys has already figured all of this shit out.
Go copy their notes.
You can do this animefags, but keep in mind that their methods aren't the "one true solution" or the best ones. There are several things in anime art style that you could take advantages of, like boosting performance and saving memory. Well, you wouldn't care unless you're doing RT rendering anyway, I guess.

Hey, blendlet here. How do you guys get good at UV mapping? I currently use gimp because I can't afford Photoshop. Is there any better programs to use? Should I just keep practicing?

You can afford Photoshop, you just choose not to
UV mapping is as it appears.

Also torrent photoshop faggot it takes like 10 minutes between searching and setting up.
>I can't afford Photoshop

Thank me later. And buy the subscription once you are making money off the program.
I honestly just pirated 3d coat and it uvwraps for me
