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?
20 replies omitted. Click here to view.
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.
then it's not involuntary
Females peaks at 14. Post-teen women are trash.

Modelling boring roasties is the ultimate underutilization of 3d. 3d is best use to create something too costly or hard to realize in real life. An ideal, a perfection.

True, fixed the nose a bit.

Yeah, upped the reso a little where needed!

Going to leave it at this, I think it is better to grind out more projects than get lost in all the little details. Thanks for the input.

I made guides to draw a circle in the centre but it snaps slightly off on both axis. How to make it centre perfectly?


>When Pixar president and co-founder Ed Catmull announced his retirement earlier this year, people rightly saw his impending departure as a transitional moment for the animation studio. But it's bigger than that. Catmull's shadow looms large not just over groundbreaking films like Toy Story and Coco, his influence can be traced all the way back to the dawn of digital visual effects. Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. The Abyss. Terminator 2. Jurassic Park. All of these titles came out before Woody and Buzz Lightyear, yet all remain watershed moments for VFX—and all used the tool that Catmull and his colleagues helped create at George Lucas' Industrial Light & Magic.

>RenderMan, as it's known, came out of ILM's computer graphics team (the same one that would later spin off into its own company called Pixar). It started as a powerful algorithm, but then became something greater—a graphical interface. "Up until that point," says Catmull, "the look, the lighting, essentially had to be done by programmers." A movie like 1982's Tron might have been mindblowing, but its digital sequences also necessitated an absolutely knee-buckling amount of work, creating its futuristic effects frame by frame. RenderMan, though, allowed effects artists to realize their visions without needing to write code.

>In the 30 years since RenderMan became available, 27 of the 30 films to win the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects used it. And judging from just some of the 2018 movies it helped create—Avengers: Infinity War, Black Panther, Ready Player One, A Wrinkle in Time, and Robert Zemeckis' Welcome to Marwen—odds are good that it'll soon be 28 of 31. That's just scratching the surface, though; we visited Pixar and dug deep into the archives to put together an exhaustive video history of the software that powered the VFX revolution.

Looking to see if anyone happends to know the best way to go about adding action figure joints to a model.

Ive looked into live Boolean with brush but never could find action figure joint brushes.

Was hoping to be able to add some without remodeling the character.

Now picture having to sculpt, retopo, texture, set up materials and rig that thing professionally. Something like 200$ barely covers the time wasted to make it.
Just model it with good topology to begin with. It would take less time with the right workflow and scripts.

When does it make sense to switch to Redshift?

To achieve the same result, how much faster is a 2080 Ti GPU in Redshift compared to a 1950X CPU in a standard CPU renderer like V-Ray, Arnold or Mantra?
probably is nonsensical not to leverage both processors to their fullest potential

CPU & GPU rendering instead of CPU vs GPU rendering
With a 2080 Ti it makes sense to switch to Redshift no matter what CPU you have. Same for a 1080 Ti. CPU rendering is pretty much dead for the indie artist. Arnold and Renderman are admitting this and are coming out with GPU implementations.
I've heard threadripper works miracles for mantra and renderman. Not exactly an exhaustive test, it's in windows, it's an old 16 core chip, and it's Renderman 21(which is slower than 22). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYfA1prozsE
What about a 2070?

Hey does anyone remember the name of that retarded amateur Indian animation? I saw it posted years ago. It's name was something like Ramalaikaifajahnahd, some unmemorisable combination of letters like that. It was hilariously bad 30 minute movie about some bald faggot going on an adventure after his fucked-physics-snake-haired mum died in a ship that got blown up by a dragon. I remember one sequence where the guy rides a dragon with a visible watermark texture while the 2009 Avatar soundtrack plays.

This can't be real.
What about that one Mexican dude that made those anime inspired animations and voice acted like all of them?
There was a ton of them. He was even a self insert.
He used to be talked about like every day here, haven't seen anything about him in a while.
Jesus, that's pure nightmare fuel
That fucker actually posted here? His stuff is amazingly bad, even today.
Nah, he never posted here.
Just his stuff was posted here a lot and had a bunch of "fans". I forget his name though, it's been so long.

I want to start modelling and UVing in 2.8. /r/ a list of the required addons to make this doable, and if paid, where to find the free versions.
LoopTools *
F2 *
Bool Tool *
HardOps **
Box Cutter **
MESHmachine **
Speedflow **

* - built into Blender, just need to enable it
** - paid; note that they all have overlapping features as they're all built for hardsurface modelling

Magic UV (enabled by default i believe)

What extent of traditional art should be learned for 3D? Anatomy/Muscles + basic drawings or should i just go 60/40 with 3D and traditional
Not to sound like a smartass, but do whatever you feel works best.
uv channels can get confusing for people that don't use them.
Drawings are good for concepts, but learning anatomy is actually better done in 3D, that way you can't cheat as easily and have to learn the forms from all perspectives. I would recommend to start with drawings of the body part you are studying from different perspectives and then try to bring it all together in a sculpt, to truly understand the form.

it's just 2 UV channels, my shader has both of them with 2 input lots for both layers. Pic posted is a screen of my prototype with second UV texture just having one layer. I constructed it so you don't even need to set uv channels in inspector, and I think I have done alright job at labeling. What I am trying to say is, I don't think it is confusing.

...if it is sorry for asking. I had a huge library years ago that I got rid of and was just starting to mess around with Daz again.
Just search for the most popular characters in the Daz Store, I mean, search them in Google, you'll easily find piracy sites.
chrome on android has a function where it downloads news stories it thinks you might be interested in, when you're offline on a plane or whatever. I don't know, it's a weird function. In my case, I'm flooded with news about the Khashoggi killing and cryptocurrency stuff, and I don't even know why, I mean I've googled the stuff but I'm not obsessing over it. Yesterday when I got on the plane and checked what google had for me, they had included a Russian Daz3D site with a pirated character (I site I'd never previously visited). Seriously, that shit could get Google in legal trouble. Crazy shit.

Merry Christmas everyone !!!!!
was this whole model made in genesis just with the sliders?
