how can i recreate 90s style 3d renders in modern blender? i know i could just learn bryce3d but i don't want to. ive heard eevee has phong shading but i can't find it.

It's even easier than messing around in Compositor. Literally just setting the View Transform in the Color Management to "Raw" will do it. You don't even need to re-render, either, since tonemappers themselves use Raw data when they adjust colors.
It really is amazing how effective tonemapping is at selling compelling lighting. I've only been dabbling in 3D for the past week or so but I've been doing color-managed digital art for a while, now, and it's just as effective there as it is here, while allowing for comparatively simple Multiplicative shading setups, now unlike that of a deferred lighting engine.
You will not get good results using this

>blender can't make this kind of art!

>2023 zoomer tryna emulate 2000 soul
literally, figuratively, and unironically forced soul.

its not just about soul either. blender's rendering just cant match the crispiness and the cleanliness of 3ds max scanline render. its not a placebo thing, theres a real algorithmic difference between bucket based vs scanline based render.
>I miss it, I'd go searching for old tutorials on how to make it on Deviantart if the site wasn't so infested with A.I.
Use google image search and append "before:2022" at the end. That helps me get to the older stuff
It's not too awful. If you have an account you could filter out ai, midjourney, dall-e and the like in the Muted Tags setting.
>they can just not tag
Most of them don't tag for shit so it won't pop up in a search in the first place. A bulk of the uploads have a generic title or number and absolutely no description either

this was good advice

Definitely keep working on low poly babes. very rewarding.

it's actually not good at all desu when texturing the faces become really obvious :( feel like I should increase the res of the butt in particular

that is awesome. is it Morrigan?
yeah its morrigan.

Those are some sick textures you got going. Nice.
It's ok if you think you're not good but I think you did a great job and would like to learn pls I have ADHD and I can't learn unless someone shows and tells lol

I hate geometry nodes.

So I wanted to get an array that has a offset for example every repeated part is -5 of the original distance.

This is impossible to get in the array modifier (despite the devs being retarded for not including it)

So lets see how I can do this in geometry nodes.
Repeat something node yes???
WTF? What is this shit.

Youtube search.

LOOOK AT THIS GARBAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I remember doing something like this like in blende 2.3 and it used something (not geometry nodes) I think it was the particle system

>just grab the nodes
Why are geometry nodes so counter intuitive?

No they keep changing them in every new version. Get your shit together!
I was waiting for the first adopters to get burned however it is blender 4.0 and they keep on fuckign with the nodes!

If blender was not retarded and god portions of it being stuck in the 90s other in the 2000s they literally give you a extra box in the array modifier that says.

Oh, I see you're just throwing a temper-tantrum and venting for people to agree with you.
Hence you putting words in my mouth. You know, because I never once said anything about you "learning" anything.
I offered up something that might help (an existing setup that you just apply like any other modifier), but you're just looking to sperg out because something was added to Blender that you don't want to engage with.
Don't engage with it then. Simple as that.

geonodes was created as an excuse so that blenderfags and devs can say that it has """"parametric modeling"""" capabilities. you just have to DIY all the presets imaginable to do the most basic shit parametrically.
Any info on this?

I only use Geometry Nodes along some Addons like Geo Scatter and for making quick, advanced and ready to render environment art.

Never use it for anything else.

Geometry Nodes are engineering, not art.
You need to be extremely autistic or mathematical to understand this.

>For example:

Instead of using Arrays in Blender, I literally just use Nanomesh and Arrays in Zbrush, which is what I know.

>"But I know how to use Geometry Nodes! It's not hard!"

Well good for you! But most people do not know how to use this, it's far too complex.

maybe you're right.

I honestly think this style is pretty nice, and is easy to just draw on top of the render.

so imagine that i got good at 3d modeling, how do i realistically make money? is porn the fastest and easy route? how do you build a fanbase or do you make videos for pornhub and cash on views?

I think Ai will eventually reach that point too; it is inevitable. Those artists are established, but by the time it actually comes around? They wont be safe in stability from this hobby anymore lmao

Hello, Last saturday i was informed by an internet chum of mine about blender. I have never used 3d modeling tools before and was interested to give it a try, had an old housemate show me some stuff about 10 years ago and it looked tedious and overly complicated and i had no pc at the time either.
I have now used blender for less than 24 hours in total and am enjoying learning, have made 2 (well 1.5) things so far.
My E-Chum also informed me about this board, as he said it can have good info here now and then so here i am.
I like sculpting the best so far and spent 3 hours today experimenting with geometry and extrusion, inset tools etc, so may check out this more often.
Thank you for reading my blog.

they look fine on my monitor and in viewers etc. but dark on uploads, any tips are appreciated.
It happens sometime with PNG on macs. Try to export as JPG instead. The difference is that PNGs carry over the color profile of your monitor, so it can be re-created on other people's monitors but that rarely works.

Is blender even good for animating anything?
A real question since I love modeling in blender.
However the animation looks ass backwards.

How it should look like
1) Take a MKV or whatever
2) Drop into blender
3) it looks like a picture however animates on the timeline so you can precisely capture the key frames of animation.

Do other software do that?

My main focus is art and improvement, which is why I don't stress much about the tool, that's a beginner's mindset, thinking that getting the best brush, or pencil, or paper will get you the results, when it has very little to do with that.
I'm not into 3D for the tech aspect, that just happens to be the medium
People here say Blender is shit,but for the same of the argument,what would be the best program for each use case? And are they compatible between each other? I kinda see Blender as a Swiss army knife,can do anything but is not the best at anything.

>Not an expert on 3D
>Doesnt want to use anything besides blender
Even the best artist can get sick and tired of the same routine. Blender is that meme that takes you years to learn and still gets hit with a rake. There’s no improvement in blender, 20 years of programming and the main development team only created a mess.

The animation side took years, proving that Blender is really bad at animation a major component of 3D for many projects and the development team doesn’t care.
blender is fine for the absolute basics od 3D - introduction to animation, texturing, modeling, sculpting etc. but as soon as you try to make anything more advanced on a semi-professional level, it's better to just use anything else and save yourself a headache. just check creations in the Blender thread, it's all the most basic shit like lowpoly characters or spinning cubes.

>are they compatible between each other?
of course they are, you just reference the files and have everything live. or export to fbx which is compatible with pretty much everything
What about posing?

Can I make some cool poses and take pictures of those?

I've been using Blender for those and so far it does the job.

All RODIN needs is a brief description, a 2D image and within seconds it will generate a 3D mesh asset with the desired amount of polygons that can be exported in formats compatible with Maya/3DSMAX/Blender/etc.
It's currently in a semi-public beta where people can apply, releasing next month.
This is just generation 1 but it's already this good.

>start adapting
But I don't wanna make badly textured low detail messy models that have weird baked in lighting artifacts, poorly defined edges and topology :(
> AI is fake and gay. Do you know about the thing where a monkey with an typewriter would write every book in the world?
Sounds like you're confused about AI. It's not randomly generating shit. There's nothing random in how it works.
NTA, but randomness is in fact essential to how it works, doubly so in diffusion-based models
That anon doesn't seem to realize that this property of machine learning was copied from human neurology, where randomness is likewise essential
its gonna need to shit out fully rigged and deformable meshes with minimal cleanup
>the topology quality is near perfect too.
No. Months and months ago they showed off these 3D generators and everyone laughed at the topology, and a couple of weeks later "wow the topology is fixed", and it looks exactly like these examples.
You know what these examples look like? They look like someone ran a quad remesher over a shitty model. That's not good topology, that's not clean topology, and I highly doubt that this isn't some kind of off the shelf quad remesher that gets added on after the model gets generated.
It can fool retards who don't know what they're looking at (you) but just looking like a bunch of squares isn't good topology.

That's actually not true, randomness is added later. image generators without added randomness are deterministic. Making it random tricks retards into think there's something extra special about it. Probably also hits the same dopamine pathways as gambling.

Over the course of the last decade, I probably modeled about an hour or two a day. Keep in mind I was in middle and high school at the time: I had homework to do, projects to complete, I had to make sure I did my exercises, and I was dedicating most of my time with web application development. Now that I’m in post secondary education, I have even less time to use. Don’t worry, I’ll improve eventually.
True. I’ll see if I can get export my game to other platforms in the following week since I’ll have a Mac to work with.
