Can you explain that to a noob? (Not the person you replied to btw). What is there to improve in modelling?
>>
>>576658
Geo is very cheap nowadays. A lot of details (mechanical details, large screws and bolts) can be done with geo rather than only textures, and even smaller details (smaller screws for example) is better modeled, then baked into a normal map than handled as a texture only (unless you use NDO I guess).

Some of the props (electrical boxes, AC units) are close to completion for a low-poly model, but don't have enough detail as high poly (you could add a lot of little things to them). Some other props (trashcan, dumpsters, skybridge) don't have nearly enough detail compared to their real-life counterparts, no matter what.

Use your imagination or look at similar designs (maybe some more recent Diablo concept art). Old sprites had very few actual details due to resolution limitations, when you do remakes like this you're probably gonna have to invent a lot of extra detail for it to look believable.

>>576742
Really clean modeling, simple but execution is flawless. If you textured it it could make a solid portfolio piece (don't forget to soften up the bevels some if you're gonna bake it).
>>
>>576710
There's a couple general rules you can use as a base.
The rule of 60-30 (or 60-20-10): 60% of a primary color or element, 30% of a secondary one. Mostly used for colors and materials.
The rule of low, medium and high frequency detail (big shapes, some areas with medium shapes and shape variations, few areas with very dense detail).
Don't forget to include rest areas (contrast of areas with lots of geo, vs flat and clean areas).

Most importantly, try to match the proportions and functions of real world items whenever possible (because those are relateable and help us identify your art). The AC units look ridiculous because they're thin, if you simply looked at real ones you could avoid this problem while creating a much more pleasant shape. Same for the dumpster, it's way too chunky despite having a normal tiny-ass lid, and I dunno what that thing on the front of it even is. It's halfway between a cartoon and something realistic which doesn't work well.

And people will say cartoons mess with proportions all the time, but that shit is hard. It only succeeds when you understand the real proportions of objects, and make a conscious choice to emphasize their most visible traits while reducing minor ones (and not doing absolutely whatever).

Please do not kid yourself that your beginner attempt at environment modelling is 'stylized' and therefore why everything in it looks terrible.

Of course I watch/read/play fiction. This has nothing to do with the fact that you model without looking at reference and you have absolutely zero understanding of traditional art skills like composition, form and proportion.
>>
>>576710

By drawing. Drawing is the most intense form of looking. Learning how to look enables your understanding of composition and proportion.

Photography (using a traditional eye-piece viewfinder camera) is a close runner-up to drawing.

As someone who has done both 2d and 3d, saying you have to know 2d to do 3d is a meme. You're gonna waste a lot of time learning rules specific to 2d, which you have no use for in 3d art (like how to translate perspective properly on a 2d plane, how to hold your pen and draw lines, etc.)
Yes, some skills (like design theory) overlap between 2d and 3d. And while most of the books have been written with 2d in mind, there's nothing that says you can't read them and apply the relevant parts to 3d without having to draw.

Is it just me or is sculpting rocks, like, really hard? Do you have some good learning source to share? I'm really struggling with it. The worst thing is that I always see some round and smooth rocks in a video game and think to myself how simple they look like, like they literally generated a shape with some plugin like rock generator for 3ds max and made a few tweaks in zbrush, but when I do it, it still looks like a dinosaur turd. Maybe my texturing is the bigger problem, but I have even used premade smart materials in substance painter and it still looks bad. Help?

This is almost all unique stuff, mostly blended using a ton of alpha stamps/brushes. I use the default SP grunges (though not a lot, just to create bases).

In this asset, so many things ended up getting

I also changed up the scene a bit for some better lighting and added some "decal" textures and tried to fix the brushed metal material. I know my materials aren't very good, but I would like to know if there is improvement from the last metal look on the barrel to now.

Not very related, but a general question for everyone:

What is wrong with using premade textures made by other people? I mean, I made some of my own textures (mostly grounds and trees), made them seamless and created additional maps for them, but the work for that was so trivial and ultimately they were nothing special compared to the rest of the ground textures you can find on textures.com, megascans or poliigon, so I don't get it why would it be a problem just using something already created in the first place to save some time. You can still tweak them and combine with other textures and get something unique.

Ignore all the edge loops on the copper wires, those were added really quickly near the end to change the silhouette a bit but wouldn't be left in production (or they'd be optimized by a lot).

Otherwise the whole thing stands at around 4500 tris, with opportunities to reduce the polycount in parts that wouldn't be seen a lot (like the handle).

Use Quick Mask to paint the alpha channel. It is literally the method used by the artists on that site.

Why cant I make low-poly look good

Worked crashed so I lost an hour. The mouths always gave me a little trouble. The eyes I plan on being textures or i may try floating discs with set driven keys. The ears are place holders. I put the tits and ass in scene I assume the internet would demand it. The face will have a veil from the nose down but want to give her a face anyway. Also I suck at modeling hair. Just trying to learn new stuff at this point.

Can't decide which lighting style is better. The previous one was radiosity only. This is radiosity initiated by direct lighting.

This kind of radiosity is hard to handle because there are no light definitions. Here I've added an occluder behind the camera.

I need a new set of textures because Quake only has brown and green. I've made some changes to shift the light forward. Radiosity for some reason looks best when the light is against the camera.

this is what i'm going for, i really like the visuals in the new db game, i'm trying to reproduce the 2d look they got

pic related was my first attempt

>>577442
This one looks the best so far.

Thanks :)

Its a boolean object with shape keys.
The eyes are just one object with its position offset with different eye states at different positions

are you using maya? I found a way to do colour split on textures a while ago. You have versions of the same texture. Make it 3 colour shader.

A light one that you connect to the highlights or rim. The normal one for base colour. A darker one for the shadow. Cant find the original tutorial.

blender actually, here's what i'm doing, multiplying the split colors into the material, but i'd like to see your tutorial anyways, seems more intuitive

Yeah I know I was being retarded, the physical properties are all over the place. IOR is wrong on the material too, got confused with what I wanted to do.

>>577399
Thanks, what's newdo mean? That looks bretty good, really reminds me of my childhood.

>>577417
I would but I don't have the time to rig and animate him sadly. The butt looks much better now, good stuff. I like the character design, what's she for?

>>577402
Cheers for the advice, I'll definitely work on implementing it on this one or the next one. When you say tweak shapes do you mean within the shader or the sim itself? There's no 3d texture/added noise at the moment, it's all simmed since I'm still just learning.

Rendered out an animation quickly yesterday, only took 45 minutes.
>>
>>577486
sorry, i thought we were friends on fb, i saw someone posting something similar to that male head
what software are you using btw, those particles are pretty neat
>>
>>577486
The sim itself.
Here are some tips:
Use more than one emitter with different values for temperature/density. Animate the values on the emitters.
Animate the emitter (scale/rotate/move) or use a particle emitter as source.
Ground dust: create a ground with static collision. Put a particle emitter above the ground and aim it downwards. Animate a short particle blast against the ground. Use the particle to drive your emitter. Turn off boyance, and use high density (to make it come down).

Use some animated B/W noise on that emitter-mesh and emit from this texture.
For a more hefty explosion spread fuel into the scene and ignite it.

Have fun and don't roast your Hardware.
Also Houdini, FumeFx or what do you use?

Sup not even one month into this shit beginner here, I wanted to ask if my model is "animatable" ( I don't want to animate the face except for the head rotating left-right up-down a bit) and how the fuck do i UV this thing and his head without wanting to kill myself
>>
>>577491
That head is the most famous 3d scanned head model, that's probably why you've seen it before. It's free too: https://sketchfab.com/models/4d07eb2030db4406bc7eee971d1d3a97

I use Houdini, a couple months into a course at the moment. Thanks for the kind words.

>>577496
Thanks for all the info, I appreciate it. I was following along with Applied Houdini so I did use a secondary, particle emitter at the base and keyframed some values on the sources, but it's not super noticeable. Will definitlely do that for the ground dust, and a similar thing for debris and smoke trails next time (I wanna do something similar to the second video here: https://vimeo.com/175857593).

Thanks for taking the time to give me advice, I really appreciate it. Are you working in the industry? I use Houdini.
>>
>>577465
Yes and I like it. But at the same time that bothers me because that's just Povray with default radiosity settings, which in turn it's just an approximation of the most vanilla path tracing. Any other renderer/setting combination I've tried looks worse, which means I'm not using any exoteric convoluted settings that were revealed to me in a secret tutorial, therefore I cannot call myself an expert.

You see the edge going from the 5-star at his shoulder down to his leg, that's where you could cut. Imagine you are an doctor trying to cut/peel his skin off. Only that you would cut where it isn't obvious, hiding the seams so to speak. (like under his arm, the inside of his legs etc.)
You want to cut off the limbs and cut them by length so they unwrap nicely. Same with fingers and that tentacles coming from his face.
Btw, I've seen creatures like this while tripping on Ayahuasca/DMT. Where is your inspiration coming from? Futurama's Dr. Zoidberg?

I am not really working in the industry right now but i am a veteran generalist.
I did this recently and the smoke coming from the gun is also done with Houdini. The rest is Zbrush, Substance and Arnold, rendered in C4d.
>>
>>577521
>Cthulhu
ah shit, thank god i saw the friendlier Zoidberg.

Also to animate that creature you might need some more edge loops around the elbows and knee area, you might want to look that up since its the most important area where deformation happens.
I am not great with that myself so search a tutorial which explains exactly that edge flow.

The fun of making a sexy rat ninja chick. Like having grown up action figures. May make a bunny and weasel/ferret for fun. Its better waste of my time then playing video game and drinking beer. Something to make life worth living for?

Wanted to make a paper model of Ink-eyes. Then I made my own design so it be my creation. Then I went too high poly because that was the way I was tough. Mostly cause I suck at texturing so it why I'm reluctant to do game low poly scene it heavily relies on textures.

Wanted to make a bunch of models fantasy models for Table TopSim to play with my friend (moved away). Scene I don't go out enough to invest a lot of time in Warhammer. Even though my younger self would love what it has become now.
>>
>>577523
Damn dude that looks awesome, you got an Artstation or anything?
>>
>>577557
Nope, i don't have actual works. This would be actually the first i would put into a folio.
>>
>>577558
Don't. It's creepy, looks bad and would just scare off any potential employer.
>>
>>577558
You should do it. You can always put WIPs in too, you don't have to only show finished work. What's your goal in terms of the future? Is it just a hobby or are you gonna go into the field?

>>577561
You're a bitter loser

>>577564
>You can always put WIPs in too
Why do you hate people?
>>
>>577564
stuff like this is hobby, i am not really a character artist, i am just learning this for fun.
I am doing boring industrial visualization stuff.
>>
>>577361
looks dope
What tutorial have you been using to learn that anon? what program?
>>
>>577565
By WIP I don't mean literally early stage work, but if you have something that demonstrates a proficiency not found elsewhere in your portfolio, it might be worth showing even if it's not textured or polished or w/e.

>>577571
Yeah fair enough, keep up the good work in that case, it's impressive.

>>577575
Cheers! I'm a couple of months into a 1 year Houdini course, and I've also been following some Applied Houdini tutorials: https://vimeo.com/189533137
>>
>>577578
So by what you said, you didn't mean what you said. You just told somebody to put WIP in his portfolio and you called me a bitter loser. Why do you hate people?
