My professor uses Maya, and he made this game:

I guess that proves Maya is useless trash?

my profs were Blender fans and two of them even told me to learn from Blender Guru because Andrew actually is good teacher. So why not?

Why would anyone think it was a good idea? The whole advantage of non-live-action is that your characters are built from the ground up, they can look exactly like their creator envisioned. They aren't just another actor playing a different role, but the character at its purest.
But, yeah fuck that, let's constrain ourselves by reusing the same character models.

So, how come 3D hentais made by the same studios do not do it? Even in 2D ero-animes, it's very rare (the only example I know, being the pic related).

All anime characters look the same. Your point is moot.

Nah, it's possible. You show the cash first, take her out to cool places and events, and only then reveal how you make that money. If you are lucky, she'll even find it naughty in a good way, and that's when you know you got it.
Make sure you show her OPs pic, ideally at the restaurant the instant the food's arrived.
sure if you get into patreon
you can even grab a free marge simpson off of that one acee site and start cranking out more mediocre simpsons porn
I wouldn't say in porn parodies, no. I'd say original, weird porn in a unique cartoon kind of style would work out.
I've been trying to do just that for awhile. I have characters, just not so great at the actual animation part.

>start with a plane, and add thickness with solidify modifier
I actually did start doing that before I stopped, but it didn't look like it was going anywhere.
I'll give it another go and see what happens.

Is there any particular sculpting tool I should be using? I tried using the grab tool, but it just seems like a mess and relies on the view angle so you can never grab things properly.
i usually get the entire shape down before i sculpt.
i add some thickness, then i turn on dynatopo to about 20 res on constant detail and i coat the hair piece with the brush until it no longer has the original geo

Nova is in it.

No. Go into it with that attitude and you'll see what I mean. I had zero expectations and was blown Away. Watch it in 3d
saw it few days ago- as a fan (mostly ova- not read all manga) and left hungry for part 2-3. eyes weren't a fail- shes full mech. my bro is not into anime but saw enough of his stuff to drag him in and he liked it too. if it was ghost in the shell i'm sure he would have given it a pass (can't blame, for me the action pieces were done to death anyway). lets apreesh that camerons tech cam-tech was patiantly built up to this point before it was made, it could have look like that live-action fist of the north star. that movie was pretty awsome.
I just saw it.
didn't care
there are other things to look at in the films.
the only times the eyes are really noticeable is when they want you to notice them. which you will.

It was super violent, they threw a guy into a meat grinder on screen.
This is "transformers PG-13". Everything's OK as long as it doesn't show blood, even though you're pulling out robot spines and throwing people into meat grinders.

Using Blender 2.8:
Last week we finished a cluster of instrument panels for NCC-Viking. Turns out we had to go back and separate each panel and clean up the orientations so we can snap linked copies anywhere needed.

Well folks, I mean faggos, we are gutting the bridge. Tonight we are working on basic stuff like getting the colors and values something a bit more brighter. Like in ancient Greek theater they performed their plays in the broad light of day so that spectators could clearly see, and understand the message.

From here on out it is artistic license. All right, good night and fuck off.

How can I learn to make textures like this?
Those are just flat lit textures, you just paint them with values exactly as you see in that picture.

If you don't understand what colors goes where and why you can check out people painting miniature figures like warhammer etc, they shade and highlight following the same basic formula.
Rock textures I'm guessing
IMO, it needs to be connected when it makes sense that it would be seamless transition AND it is seen, if they can't see/aren't shown the transition why waste poly connecting geometry?
That makes sense but wouldn't you run into problems if you tried to animate it?

Export the mesh, import it in the latest version working with Retopoflow, and do the work there.
thats like 86 dollars
It's free on GitHub.
Just like retopo it? What do you need an addon for?
is there a way to have the orientation follow my selection like in previous versions instead of being locked to my cursor?

>trying to convince yourself you have a valid excuse to not bother learning basic 3D skills.

I work in the industry as a hard surface artist. I'm just tired of that guy hating on sculpting. A real 3d artist should be well versed in both sculpting and hard surface modeling.
They model them in quads then convert them to tris, dumbass.
>it's o.k. to put them strategically if you have no other choice
it's either you have no other choice or you put them strategically
also you always have the choice
yeah if you can leave an ngon you sure as fuck can leave triangles then
triangles are harder though, because in some fringe cases you'd have to fuck up the shape and/or complicate the topology to eliminate them all
