On this scale, I am left of 1.
I can rotate the apple in my mind. I can slice it, peel it, smash it, see the texture of the skin, the porosity of the flesh. I can imagine scenes of many apples tumbling around in a box, running through machines to make them into apple sauce. I want to create what I see in my mind, so I open up 3D software, and I can't make it. It takes way too long. I don't have the patience to make 1/10th of the detail I can see in my mind. By the time I get some armature set up or model a human ear, I have 10 other ideas that I want to make. I have started over 500 projects in the past 4 years and finished 0. What am I supposed to do? Can I download a studio on cgpeers?

Are you high on glue or something?
Nowhere did I say that 3D is an replacement for fast 2D concepts, but occasionally you can take a shortcut and leave out 2D.
Companies pay good money for 3D concepts, if they want them, people (like me) will do them.
I regularly do very rough 2D concepts first and then I flesh them out in 3D. 2D is merely a stepping stone for a highly detailed 3D concept that then gets properly produced by an prop artists. Its only a visualization to show, I personally often don't need them.
And yes I do fast kitbash scifi stuff because I am as fast with it as if I would draw it from scratch. You do know that you can paint over 3D stuff,right? 2D first 3D later or the other way around makes no difference when its hardsurface.
>you cannot use it as some cheat for not understanding the fundamentals of art.
Take your assumptions and shove them in your fat ass. I studied design and art first and learned 3D afterwards.
What is that special?

what are some cool examples of character models that change depending on camera angle to make 2d styles 'make sense' in 3d?

picrel is live2d Euclid, a pretty cool 2d -> 3d tool, https://vimeo.com/119417809

but I'd love to see 3d -> 2d stuff too. I heard the new 3D MLP show shifts character heads around depending on camera angle? couldn't find info on it though

You should lock a dedicated camera inside of your asshole, money laudering jew
If the shoe fits, wear it
It would be helpful to have a camera view without the distortion so that it's more evident how the distortion effects the model.

There's this schizo anon on this board who keeps asking about how to do animation that is automatically balanced using a physic AI and timed smoothly.
We keep pretending that there is no such tool even tho there is and we've been using it for years lol.

The name of the tool is Aur... Oh wait someones calling me, I gotta take this, nvm I'll be back to finish this post later bros.
Not him but how and where do i learn to make things with difficult natural curves like this?
Arrimus3D, Elementza. Polycount has a gigantic thread about how to model these kinds of shapes. It's called "How tf do I model this?" or something like that iirc.

This isn't too bad. Keep in mind you can also make the base shape with booleans and then clean everything up. (You can also do everything with booleans to the end and smoothen the edges in Zbrush, it's kinda hacky but can be useful).

But yeah, this kind of thing is my worst enemy as well, I can usually complete these tasks, but with tons of pain and overtime.

Blender user here. Nearly 99% of the time I stumble on coomer shit done in maya/blender etc characters look vastly uncanny and weird, but when I look back to 2D porn everything looks evoking and cozy to watch art. Does anyone have an explanation for this? I bet I am not the only person who cringes at 3D porn and finds 2D more suitable. Don't get me wrong, I've been a Blender user for 2 years, but when it comes to filling those needs I always look back to 2D artists.

fiber meshes with dForce functionality is the way to go.

some more extreme shapes might necessitate the use of geo-shells or geo-grafts.
I don't know what you are talking about, 90% of 3d porn compilations made on sfm looks alright to me. it doesn't seem to me like the wuality for 3d is much worse than 2d coom
3D attracts more incompetent people who think they can get away with shit. With 2D, bad quality is often the result of not enough time/effort spent (talking about animation here).
Bad 3D is often the consequence of lack of knowledge and competence.
Compilations are made from the best 30%, the contrast to the shittyness of worst goes unnoticed.
I use daz, you idiots make the crap. I don't have time to be a nerd. Now get back to making shit that I will get for free.

You should add Marmoset to your arsenal.

>3ds max and maya indie is not available in my third world
then they also can't probably enforce the law and you should pirate their tools without having moral problems.
I am living in a rich country (still pretty much broke) I can get a indie license and I am still pirating all their tools. Fuck them, If I am making no money, they wont get any from me.

When creating game characters do people create each one from scratch or do they have some base model which they modify and put clothes on to? Which one yields better results? What option should I choose as a solo dev? I want to create characters with similar art style as pic related.

art style i want to achieve
You have to pick a time efficient method as a solo dev. If you're thinking about it, then it's best for you to lower your scope and do a base mesh.

You can theoretically do realistic models, but you will probably make a mistake with them if it's your first time. You want to spend time adding content to your game as opposed to fighting assets. Don't listen to /v/ when they complain about "pixel/low poly shit", they buy those games anyway and most people don't care about it.
I always build a nude/skintight jumpsuit kind of version of my character first that I set up to rig well,
any outfit variations I make then use the same key loops for deformation areas and are
rapidly weighted and tested via skinwrapping to the base variant.

You'll need one base version of each bodytype character that is gonna be in your game.
Like say you gonna have normal/skinny/fat male/female you then need 6 base characters to work from.
You can cut corners and have everybody use the same skeleton but then you gotta strike a good tradeoff
and have modestly sized males and very athletic females, see the GTA Online protagonist for an example of that.

>Which one yields better results?

The above is how you get the highest quality results and ensure good deformations for anything you create.
