He's that fast? Perhaps he should slow down and think things through then. His work is impressive in terms of fidelity but most of his surfaces are unappealing and stressed, like them bayformers, the designs are lost in the details.

That guy could probably make some really memorable things if he cut back on the kitbashing.

is there an animation technique or method which simulates the sliding motion of a surface over a fixed mass that doesn't rely on full blown simulations?
in other words, the surface mesh moves while maintaining the illusion of a fixed mass underneath?
>>
>>668272
Yeah, you can do things like this with various constraints to the position and rotation of free floating bones that emulates connective tissue and muscles. It's conceptually simple but can be extremely complicated to execute well in practice.

One very simple but useful example of this is a extra bone at the knee, elbow, knuckle, buttcheek etc that rotates halfway between the parent and the child of the joint to counteract the scissor like pinching as a joint closes.

I´ve been playing around with this Jojo´s models, but i got a problem with textures being fucked up.

Wait...

Since avoiding insane poly counts is vital for game modelling, what do you find easier - straight up polymodelling or sculpting something out and then performing retopology? What parts about one method make you prefer it over the other?

And Blender cannot compete against, say, Modo, as a modeler. Nor against ZBrush for sculpting, or Mari for texturing. So what can Blender really compete against?
>>
>>668123
Wins against all of them in donut production per capita
>>
>>668123
Not a fanboy but lets put things into perspective and be fair.
Blender beats Modo when it comes to rigging and animation.
Blender beats Cinema4d when it comes to modelling (probably UV mapping too).
>>
>>668138
>Blender beats Modo when it comes to rigging and animation.
But it doesn't beat Maya at that.

>Blender beats Cinema4d when it comes to modelling (probably UV mapping too).
But it doesn't beat Modo or 3ds Max at that.

>Wins against all of them in donut production per capita
Nope, not even in donut modeling can Blender beat its competition. Houdini is the true leader: https://vimeo.com/279945549
>>
>>668182
no argument from me, you are right.
But based on that you can create a ranking.
What does interests me is the question: Is Modo better than Max when it comes to pure modelling?

In aesthetics, the uncanny valley is a hypothesized relationship between the degree of an object's resemblance to a human being and the emotional response to such an object. The concept of the uncanny valley suggests humanoid objects which appear almost, but not exactly, like real human beings elicit uncanny, or strangely familiar, feelings of eeriness and revulsion in observers. Valley denotes a dip in the human observer's affinity for the replica, a relation that otherwise increases with the replica's human likeness.

Examples can be found in robotics, 3D computer animations, and lifelike dolls among others. With the increasing prevalence of virtual reality, augmented reality, and photorealistic computer animation, the 'valley' has been cited in the popular press in reaction to the verisimilitude of the creation as it approaches indistinguishability from reality. The uncanny valley hypothesis predicts an entity appearing almost human risks eliciting cold, eerie feelings in viewers.

Post examples.

Fuck around with clay, you don't sound like you have the time to worry about the technical aspect of 3D like caring for topology or texturing.

Alternatively I'd suggest ZBrush, it's powerful but you're going to need to invest time to get used to it for even the most basic tasks.

Just fuck around with clay, you've had your hands since you're born. There's no reason to get into digital 3D in your specific case.

I'm trying to model a face with poor references: one front view and a 3\4 portrait style view.

I have no information on the camera used, focal length, lens or anything like that.

Other that fucking around randomly with scene cameras to try and get it right, is there any method or utility that can be used to at least get it in the ballpark? The few I've found through Google only seem to work with architectural photos with plenty of orthographic lines to reference.

>completely distort how the face actually looks.

Oh plox, whoever made Sara Ryder butchered the job. I have a vague recollection there was a hot version of the game model more true to the actress
but then someone at bioware informed them of the new policy that every female character must now look like they've gained a chromosome
so they don't scare away 'female gamers'* because "mirror-mirror-on-the wall if someone is hawter than me I must cut chunky wrists to drain the fat."

>whoever made Sara Ryder butchered the job
They scanned her face with laser. It's exactly how she looks IRL minus the makeup part. Except people didn't want to see how she looks IRL. And their scanning process is accurate to the point face recognition easily can tell what face was used for it out of thousands of photos.
>>
>>668057
Go to sketchfab and look at some laser scans of people, see the quality of those mesh compared to what a real person looks like?. Understand that even if you do a laserscan you need an artist to interpolate the result and topologize it well
and that there is a lot of nuance missing from a scan unless you have an absolute expert team collecting that data.


But if that's how they did it it all starts to make sense. Notice how the crown of digi-ryders head doesn't match the cranium of the real girl.
She obv didn't wear a baldcap for the scan and they just did the face and let the hack face-artist they had on pay roll wing it, what a travesty.
>>

I thought she looked bad because of the in game camera settings warping shit

just curious, what exactly did you learn? the things I listed are mostly observation, so I'm wondering
cheers
>>
>>666717
nice points
>>
what rendering engine did you use? Lumion? can you post raw render?

limit color palette
declutter - too busy, create area of focus and leave space for eyes to relax.

learn to texture- if you need help download textures from poligon.com- theres a free plugin where you can load textures into 3dsmax that works with several renderers. observe how the textures behave during render then copy and adjust to suit your scene..
use reference photos and observe light values, colors in shadows and highlights and adjust to match or be similar.
>>
>>667785
mate that website looks like garbage. just use textures.com and do the settings yourself
>>
>>667832
sure if you understand how textures work in CG. where else can a beginner get samples with diffuse, reflection, bump, normal, displacement etc. If you know how, i agree its better to make your own.
