Guys we need to talk about this shitty trend.
Did you notice that 60% of female models(not only porn models) have this disgusting black nails that look weird.
Is it kind of fetish?What do you think about it?
18 replies omitted. Click here to view.
what needs to be discussed are her really really tiny hands.
I would be more worry about the fact that 90% of female models looks more than 20 yo
Nah, I think it works well with certain styles, like pop-punk and all.

...do you want them to be younger or something?

Why it's so prevalent in el'cheapo 3D prob has to do with the way these nails are made. They are often a separate material or even a separeta mesh.
Real nails are more difficult to create since they seamlessly transition from soft skin to hard creatine.

They shade different and require good texture work or complex shading to describe the translucent effects seen on the nailplate and nail edge.
If the nail is part of the same mesh you gotta blend the nailplate and the skin of the finger with good texture work and have additional map channels to account for the difference in shading.
if the meshes are sepparate you need some clever way to soften the transition of the cuticle onto a natural nail or it will look digital.
Ever seen a girl with french manicure that removes the cuticle on her nails IRL? it's a look that's out there and it looks a lot like they are vampires growing claws.

Compare the artistry of doing all of this if you are a poser porn dude to just making them a solid color and call it a fap.
If a random npc running the stock dude-bro script is asked about what his favorite color is eleven out of ten times the awnser is gonna be 'black'.

Disclaimer: Personally I think black nail polish on women looks hot.
>Nah, I think it works well with certain styles, like pop-punk and all.
>...do you want them to be younger or something?
Yes. Teen models.

I tried to use sculpt mode with a mouse and I cant seem to make a model without it looking weird.

If i bought a graphic tablet could I get more precise sculptures?

(Depth brush talking about how the harder you press on the tablet the stronger it is)
yes it does! actually I find nearly impossible to sculpt with a mouse. Still, navigatimg the viewport with a graphic table is a pain in the ass.
In Blender you have to turn on "depth brush" or how it's called by clicking on a little switch near the sliders for the brush power and size
Yes it does, and obviously you'll get more precise sculpts. Simply put it, a mouse has only two pressure levels: yes, and no. A tablet can have anywhere from 1024 to 4096. So you can guess from there.
Post in the questions general next time too. Thanks.
Thank you guys, I just didnt want to buy a Tablet and realise it doesnt work :)

Because you don't want to deal with an "autodesk representative" and because your options beyond that are limited.

What can I do as an amdfag that wants to use houdini? None of the supported renderers seem to support my card. Do I have to export in some other supported package for my final result or cope with slow render times? I love prorender in Maya and eevee in blender but the utility of houdini for effects is too valuable since I make props and shit a lot of the time. My current workflow is making some props in zbrush and substance painting some textures on them. Then I put it through the works of simulating fractures and erosion then retexture. I was thinking I'd then export to unreal and just running off realtime glsl shading and effects. Is this any good?

Mantra has it's uses. It plows point clouds and does great with volumes. It is a very high quality and robust renderer. Especially as you get into larger scenes that choke off other renderers. While mantra can be slow it will get the work done. Since you are on an amd gpu you are limited to software rendering, so why not try renderman? It will most likely be faster for you than mantra.
Could it be used in huge Arch viz scenes with lots of scattered grass, trees, plants etc with the same speed and quality as vray?
speed probably not, quality yes. Though Mantra eats instanced (packed prims) alive.
in detailed exterior scenes it is the mass instanced vegetation that is the killer for time. perhaps houdini/mantra could be a viable alternative for max/ vray plus plugins like forest pro
It sounds like an ideal case for mantra, though I have never done any arch vis work so take that with a grain of salt. Read up on packed prims it's slightly tricky getting them to pack their shaders. It's just one buried setting on the mantra output rop.

You are tellint the truth but you didn't catch a main thing. Pornfags have no skill and porn itself is very pointless
No-one is making you post anything.
It's just a side effect of video games becoming mainstream OP. If you expose a guy to a female likeness a countdown til the first time he's gonna fap to it has begun.
Scores of dude spend time looking at video game girls at an age where they are sexually mature so naturally they wanna fap to it.

I'm not surprised you didn't notice this earlier, it's just rule 34 at work.

Like back in the day when I grow up teens watched MTV and television, so kids downloaded fake celeb pictures of Brittney and the Buffy Vampire Slayer and what not.
My brothers generation grew up in a weird time where teens played kids games so they all fapped to pokemón.

It's nothing to worry about it's just the circle of fap.
Follow the money.

You don't even know what he intends to use the scene for.
I like that you take the video this seriously.
>What reason did you make the animation?
Just for fun and ideally for people to watch it and think it's funny or weird in an interesting way
>Who or what is your animation or 3d refrance while making this?
I'm not quite sure what you mean. I just tried to animate the lyrics of the song. For some objects like the car or the beer bottle I used reference photos that are also the textures of the models.
>Do you want a career in 3d, if so who is the end goal?
No, it's just a hobby. If anything I'd like to gain subscribers on youtube who like to watch the kind of videos I make. Bad animation is a whole genre on youtube with creators like andywilson92, ratboygenius, cyber8 or Cool3dWorld
>Am I correct in thinking this is your first animation? Is doesn't matter too much but it gives me some context.
Actually no. I made quite a few videos, most of which you can watch on my youtube channel. I realize that my style and skill have been stagnating and maybe I should try out some new techniques or "art styles" in future videos.
>How long did it take you to make this total?
It's hard to tell, because I started this half a year ago and abandoned it half way through. Then a few days ago I started working on it again. I think if I worked full time on the video, i could have made it in 2 days. If I have to write a script, record audio and do more "detailed" animation (e.g. lip sync) like I did on some other videos, it will take longer.
>Is this intended to come a cross as surrealism, or postmodernism?
Yes, it's supposed to come off as weird and hopefully funny.

If we get BMI of such a level then the entire world will change
Imagine a day where we just _think_ video games into existence. Everyone would be playing their ideal games. You can join/play others' creations, but why do that when you can make the perfect one in your head? We'd try to hold competitions to see who could come up with the most creative, but the moment a new concept that somehow people haven't thought of gets leaked, it's instantly incorporated in everyone else's games rendering these competitions moot.
If we can think games into existence with our brains then we've probably achieved Matrix-level VR. That'd be dope

Learning 3D has caused me to lose interest in gaming/movies..

Before I knew the whole process behind making them, vidya and movies had that 'magic' that made them interesting But now I look at game characters and all I really see is a mesh with nice textures and effects wrapped around them. Similar with movies (although I don't know as much about vfx).. that 'wonder' has gone for me now! Is it the same with any of you? Do you look at vidya and movies differently since learning about CGI/3D etc?

Real time graphics impresses and inspire me, perhaps because it's stuff I can play around with and achieve on my own.
I often find myself walking around games and looking at things thinking about how it's put together and noticing the nice little tricks fellow artists have used.
CGI/VFX in cinema kinda ruined film for me.

The capability for directors to realize any insane scene from any camera angle has been exploited to hell and back and any major blockbuster popcorn flick
predictably deteriorate into some music video roller-coaster ride of ever increasing implausible physics and time dilation.

Back in the day when practical effects was the only thing they had available the amount of thought that went into a scene looking cool meant a lot of the stupidity was out the window.
Used right it'd only serve to elevate the media but it's so exploitable.

The best CGI/VFX are the kind you don't even know is there while you watch the film unless you explicitly start thinking about how a scene must've been put together.
Can you suggest two or three films with "sensible" visual effects? Honest curiosity. I can enjoy the typical blockbuster, but it'd be refreshing to watch something different.
Almost any major film of television production has scores of VFX and partial CGI shots to place people in environments that doesn't exist or would be too expensive/dangerous/difficult to create as a set or access to film in.

Here's some examples from my favorite shows in recent years 'Stranger Things', that show is riddled with effects shots you often won't necessarily think of as FX shots while you watch the show.

Or take a flick like 'Public Enemies' the one about John Dillinger form 09. That one is set in the 1930's so it shows a lot of vistas and traffic etc from that period that is all effect shots.
Same with stuff like say 'Band of Brothers' or any other show/flick set in a period of history long gone.

Also pretty much any time you see a helicopter, aircraft or other expensive to operate and difficult to film vehicle in motion. An exhaustive list would become a very long post.
>The best CGI/VFX are the kind you don't even know is there while you watch the film unless you explicitly start thinking about how a scene must've been put together.
Other Anon here.
I would disagree with you on this one here. I see it as this. There are 2 kinds of special effects, the obvious, visible ones and the invisible ones.
Choosing one over the other is i think a matter of preference and personal taste.
