Working on this character bust. I'm making the hair cards at the minute but i'm new to maya and can't figure out how to select multiple vertices from more than one spline at once. Since I want to tweak some of the chunks of hair using soft select. I can only seem to select one spline at a time. Any input? Also any crit on the character so far?

Cow parsley.

With some color tweaks now it is starting to look good to me but at first I wasn't sure if the flower groups are a bit too dense. Even though the amount seemed correct to me when compared to references, when everything is baked and put on cards, it seems to me that there might be too many of them. After a certain distance from it, everything melts together and the details are lost, but maybe the "cloudy" look is nice too? I'll need to think about it, feedback appreciated, as always.
>>
>>696120
Looks nice. I would keep some of the denser pieces but add some with less denser flowers. Then mix them.

I'm not here to make it as anatomically human as possible. Her hips are just fine, I'm not making her THICC (I've reduced her thiccness before pic was taken). Also you're right on one thing... She needs a proper ribcage.

Anon, the left looks shit. Glad you changed it. Your style is lacking. Go on Artstation or find some good stuff on Deviant art. Also, for this stilization to work, you have to have a good 2D style. Work on that first while getting knowledge on how to do 3D.

Honestly the thing that makes it look fucking weird is the lumps over the hip area. It's like they have a second pelvis or something. That was my main problem with it.

You're missing out bone landmarks like her ribcage and hips. The fat distribution in her butt and the area above it is wrong, you would not see this kind of curve from her back into her butt. The pec into deltoid transition while cut off looks a little bit odd. Even if she's in t-pose it would not be an actual line. She looks like she doesn't have lats, which makes her shoulder blades jut out weirdly much. Also going back to the ribcage, it generally just looks like she doesn't have any.

All in all I would look at more anatomy and photo reference. I know everyone says that, but you're not breaking down your shapes quite enough and the body's silhouette is not very convincing at the moment. Anatomy for Sculptors has some really good stuff if you wanna see shape breakdowns.

Do you guys have any tips on improving that, maybe some tutorial recommendations? Any other issues that I really need to fix?

It's essential that you have uniform texel density, to avoid the distortions on the leaves.
>>
>>697330
...good point. Thanks!
>>
>>697330

It's the texel aspect thats the problem here, not nessecarily the density. Do a proper uv unwrap, make you cuts in places where the "balls" of the tree meet. I'm sure you'll be golden. Or if you cant manage to make it look nice, at least make a neat uv map and then triplanar project the textures onto it in sub painter! Its not ideal but it can work.

>>697293

I really like the rest of the textures on the house, I thought it was some miniature at first but then I saw max UI haha

I haven't found any quality resources for topology for animating. Everything I've found just sort of hand waves it away and says "it depends on your target platform" but then doesn't even show one methodology for any of those approaches.

I've seen some people encourage triangles at the joints but then I also hear that I want to use all quads in the retopo stage.

I think I need to seek out some character or creature modeling for games tutorials or courses or something.

how much did you look
>>
>>697433
Off and on for a few days, but even that wiki you linked doesn't explain the 'why' of the approaches being used.

Some of those hands have 10x the number of tris as others, is that for closeups in film or games? Is it meant to be realtime or not? Should I be using corrective shapekeys or helper bones when I animate the hands, and if so should the mesh include geometry to support that.

Thanks for your link, however I must not have conveyed my interest for understanding the reasons for why I want to retopo one way or the other. That is what I'm trying to find.

To avoid penetration or strange movements the human body cant do. Ironically the lower poly you go the more control you have. High poly fingers for instance always penetrate.

Alright then, after some advice from you and some outside source, I updated her design to a degree, her hair's been updated so there won't be a chance of having her hair clip itself, sacrifice some polygons, gave her an hourglass body, masturbated to some hentai, and have more faces. Her eyelashes are now in a different design, but I haven't showed you that because I haven't updated these frames.

Well i havent compiled the version that i posted yet but i did have compiled other versions of the same size but with less detail. This is only 8 units away from the edges of the editor limits. gm_bigcity runs like shit because the engine thinks the player can see everything else in the level even if its across the map behind multiple buildings but this will be correctly optimized with horizontal vis leaf cuts. I'd say this map is going to run way better that bigcity at sewer level but on the sky scrapers your frames will tank. Its only made for sandbox so theres very few enterable buildings.

Right, I assumed it was a darkrp map. I confused bigcity for evocity, which some darkrp servers use and is way too big for darkrp to fully utilize.

Don't waste your time with Marvelous and Substance if you can't do a proper model right.

>>698532
I think it's mainly because they have a bit more "personality" to them. Next time you sculpt some normal faces, try to add some expressions or something. I know you're probably keeping them neutral because they're for your game and all, but adding some character will help sell them as actual characters and not just "sculpt #237".
Keep it up though.
>>
>>698534
Thanks a lot. In past I noticed the model changes a lot once you start modelling around an expression but I don't pursue it enough. I make them grimace and then realize that some stuff looks right but instead of shaping it to the similar position to original I just undo or leave the expression.

I was gonna put a little shrine behind the gate, but I opted to do one of those little Ramen stalls instead. The thing about the gates in Jap culture, is that walking through them is supposed to bring you into a sacred area or the spirit world, which is why shrines and stuff are commonly found behind them.
I thought it'd be fun instead to have an empty noodle stall instead. I'll have the camera pointing through the gate at the stall. Like it's a little place for spirits to gather or something. Since you'd be looking from the outside of the gate, in, maybe have some shadowy figures or something eating there. I don't know, I'm just throwing things out there.

In any case, still working on the noodle stall, but it should look pretty nice once it's all textured. Though admittedly it doesn't look like all that much right now.

Finished adding little bits of clutter here and there, as well as putting some basic materials onto everything before I start texturing in SP.
Shit's starting to reach some maximum levels of comfy. Though I kind of reached some artistic block when it came to coming up with other things to add as far as clutter goes.

Should the lighting look too dull even after texturing you can always add a few secondary lights to get more visual diversity.
After all, the industrial setting doesn't have a lack of lamps, lights and otherwise glowing chemistry.

Starting to texture the scene. Figured I'd start small with the little clutter things first.
Got a little onions sauce bottle and some sake. I've got variations on the textures as well, and I'll have the scene randomly pick which ones. So there'd be different types of bottles, but they all share the same material that swaps between textures randomly. Not too big a deal, but it should cut down on some work. Each object will have like 4 variations.

Gotta love the filters.
>>
>>699115
The shoyu sauce bottle of whatever you'd call that looks fantastic, the glass looks great, the mesh is nice and round and the sticker is sharp and crisp. The sake bottle on the other hand looks like ass, I can tell the different faces apart if I look at the cap and sticker. Not a fan of how the glass looks either, something about that stretched specular rubs me the wrong way. And the logo on the sticker itself looks rough and chunky.

It's like two different people made two different assets. I don't mean to backseat model but I'd at least add some more geometry to the bottle as a start.

Thanks, glad you think so. I was thinking it might have been too much. I was surprised how well it came out looking though.

>The sake bottle on the other hand looks like ass
Yeah you're not wrong. I'm planning on going back with the sake bottles.
As far as the polycount goes, I've got a subsurf on it (pic related), I just didn't import it into SP with it.
I do agree about the specular and logo though. I think it's mainly from trying to match multiple proportioned meshes to the same UV map to reuse them. Shouldn't be too hard to just swap over to triplanar to fix it though. I'll play around with it some more.

Should I restart and do the model inserting separated spheres for every muscle?
I'm also considering bringing this to 3Ds Max and put the geometry by hand, maybe that way it will look sharper Idk.

Foreword: I am not a zbrush specialist neither do I know or care that much about anatomy.

It looks wrong because you got your proportions wrong, yours is the shorter, stumpier brother of the ref you posted. I would focus first and foremost on getting that right, use the see-through mode in zbrush if you have to, don't try to nail something so important by eyeballing it in another monitor or something. Your right arm thickness also doesn't match up, your shoulder muscles, whatever that's called, is chunkier on the ref.
So are the chest muscles. I get the feeling your legs aren't quite as thick either.

You mentioned your sculpt looks softer, that's a bit of a given considering the ref has dark hard edges painted on. Still, looking at your folds, I can't help but to think you're going in a lot with the smooth brush? Don't be a bitch, get in there hard with Dam.Standard or some other kind of creasing brush, try not smoothing anything for half a hundred strokes or so and see what happens.

There's no need to restart, this isn't a trainwreck.

Moved on to doing the bowls. Threw together a few patterns in Illustrator and used them as fills.
The pattern on the first one is kind of blurry on purpose (wanted to try that effect where it kind of stains into the porcelain). There's some definite texture stretching on the hexagonal one though. Mainly because of my shitty UV job. I'll be re-doing the UV map (had them all rectangular), so it shouldn't be a problem. Meshes are subsurfed outside of SP, so don't worry too much about counting polys.

I tried my best to make a dirty bowl, like someone just ate off of it, but Imma be honest, it came out pretty shit. In fact, it looks like someone shit in it.
If anyone has some tips on how to go about making some food stains, I'm all ears.

Put some more work into the bowls. Right when I think I'm finished with something I go right back in and work it even longer.
In any case, looking pretty good now.

Though the dirty dishes look less like someone shit in them and more like someone bled out in them now. Maybe both. Again, if anyone has some tips on doing food stains and stuff I'd appreciate it.

>>699412
>Do people playing game even care about details like how the shoelaces looks?
Probably not, but every little detail you add in just makes it that much better. While small things by themselves might not make all that big a difference when scrutinized, all those little details add up to something really nice when you take in everything as a whole. Though it is important to know when too much is too much, as a busy piece is just as bad as one with not enough detail.

In any case, I like it. Keep going. Reminds me a lot of the texture work they had in PS2 games like Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy.

Next up, we've got some spices and some chopsticks. All that's left now are the pots and knives, then I can start the long ass process of texturing the whole stand.

Once that's all done I'll start putting the environment and stuff all together.
If it's possible, I think it'd be cool to import it into Unity and get it working in there so people could walk around in it. Then have it set up to where the viewer could alternate going to the spirit world and the real world by walking through the gate. So in the real world, the place with the noodle shop would just be some ruins or something, but when they pass through the gate it's all lit up and comfy.

I don't really know if that's something anyone would be interested in or not, or whether people would even bother downloading it and walking around, but it might be kind of neat in VR.
Who knows how well the scene would run or if it would look all that good moved over to Unity, but I'll still give it a go. After that's done I don't know where I'd put something like that for people to access it though.

I would make your chopsticks more interesting. If you are going for the cheap look the they will be much rougher, but to go with the rest of your stuff which is all a bit more ornate, you could do that with your chopsticks too.
Just some simple stuff around the ends.
Also, chopsticks usually rest on that chopstick holder like in the pic.

Yeah I wanted to go for the look of those cheap disposable ones. The ones that are squared at the top and round off towards the end (like your pic actually). I really wasn't happy with the texture density of that one so I went back in and re-did it (like everything so far). Same texture size, 512x512, but I gave the islands a bigger bit of breathing room since in this case stretching is a good thing to get that fibrous look.
I do agree about making them a set that's more ornate though.
My thoughts going in was to make the stand kind of a mix between traditional and modern stuff. So like the little spirits have a bit of anachronism like they're adopting stuff from the real world. So the disposable chopsticks kind of factored into that for me, though I imagine personal experience too since I don't really deal with chopsticks outside of the occasional Asian restaurant.
I'll add some more fancy chopsticks as well in some areas.

>I'm Keen to see your whole set come together.
Me too. What are your thoughts about the Unity thing? I don't really know if people would really bother with something like that or not.


>>699700
That makes a lot more sense in context. I honestly like the ammo concept a bit more than the lunchbox looking thing you've got now. It probably would only make much sense in the context of an animation though.
Hope you do find a good way to work it into something.


>>699750
Looking pretty good. I'd dial down the roughness a bit on the spots. Also the textures are looking pretty uniform.
Think about how that object would be used, and where things would wear out and scratch. Where people would grab it and leave residue, where moisture and stuff would start to rust and collect, and maybe dents and stuff from garbage men tossing it around or it falling over. For a start though you're pretty good.

Spent way too long re-making the knife meshes (which were shit to say the least).
Finished texturing one of them, so that's one down out of 4. At least until I go back in and work with it for another 6 hours. Still, it's done enough for now. My roughness settings get fucked when exporting from SP to Blender (everything ends up too shiny). Not really sure why, so I have to get it close as I can with a color ramp.

Anyway, rest of the knives should come pretty quickly now that I've got the base materials set up from this one.
>>
>>699869
Also, I forgot to mention, there's a little line at the very edge of the blade. That's a mistake by me. Forgot to dial in some of the edge wear and it caught the sharpened edge. It'll be fixed when I work some more on it tomorrow.

Hey, thanks. I like the knives. Yeah, I’m putting wizards in. Never tried character modelling so not super looking forward to it. Couldn’t find any good “wizard” or “robe” objs for free online so i’ll do it the hard way

The orbs I wanted to do a particle thing but it seemed like it would be too much effort to look good. I tried to increase the strength of the sphere lights for the orbs but it blew out the shadows too much? Currently I’m trying to get the shadows and darker places more dark but nothing I’ve tried works and vray lights don’t attenuate. If you or anyone else has advice on lighting, camera setup I’d appreciate it. Oh, and for getting the perspective to ‘pinch’ more at the top like in the card art

You might not actually have to do much for the wizards to be honest. They're fully covered in the robes and hoods (looking at the card). You could probably get away with a shitty human model from makehuman or similar. Hell, if you really don't want to go that route, you could probably just throw something vaguely human shaped together for the robes to drape over. Then use a cloth sim to drape some fabric. It'd be pretty easy in Marvelous, but it should be simple enough without it depending on what you're using. It doesn't have to be much more than a big sheet with some pinning here and there.

As for the pinching at the top, you could just fuck around with the camera's FOV, or if you really want to push it, you could use a lattice like pic related to squeeze things in more at the top. The FOV thing is more dependent on what angle you're looking at, but the lattice would work independently from where you're looking.

For lighting, you're actually pretty close to the card now that I look at it. They've got some crazy dark shadows going under the platforms. I don't know much about VRay, but if you increase the strength of your main light you should get some crisper and darker shadows. If not, you could always cheat by using a mesh the shape of your dark/hard shadows under the platform, making the material black, and throw some transparency on it. It's hacky, but I've done it occasionally and it's worked alright.

In any case, it's looking good. Pretty close to the card. If possible though I'd whip up a few more book meshes. Can't ever have too much variety.

Have only bother doing major shapes like calf, quad and biceps flexes on characters I've made in the past.
I prefer using bones rather than shapekeys but for the activation it's sufficient to just use a linear interpolation of the angle of the joint in question.

like write a simple script, or do the blender equivalent of parameter wiring and map it to be 0% bicep bulge @ zero degree elbow, 100% bulge at 135degrees and it'll look pretty natural.
