>this looks like an unfinished pre-vis.
>not sure why they didn't make a proper version
it is easy to imagine that kanye went off on a spiel about artisticness and how the pre-vis is the final version because if you have the vision you can see something in nothing and so the polish is for the masses and the polish is for those that can't see and so they don't deserve to see it and so on and no one spoke up because he pays their rent and they don't really care and so the pre-vis just got ok'd as the final because it is art and you either get it or you don't and i have bad news for you son and so on and so on.
there was an episode of the documentary Abstract about s set designer who worked on Kanye shows and they'd sit around a table with a model and listen and nod and you either saw what she was saying or you didn't. the virgil fashion guy was the same, you either understand the vision and the vision is what is important, not the polished delivery because that is only needed for those who didn't get the vision, the blind.

that sort of nonsense speil, but no one can call kanye a faggot and not get kicked out like you can do here.

How long does it take you to model, uv, and texture this

and what if you have to design it as well
>>
>>897171
>>897229

Depends vastly depending how used you are to that modelling style.
If it's in your wheelhouse 2 weeks sounds about reasonable but if you are just getting into that level of detail it is quite taxing and will take a lot longer than that.
The design is opportunistic and playful to people like Bulgarov, they just dig in there and start cutting and adding shapes and it's a fairly fast and playful process for them.

For me it takes longer because I have a hard time having any fun with it whenever I've attempted detail passes like that.
I could mimic what you have there within 2 weeks but it'd mean really pushing myself and I'd burn out fast if I had to model stuff like that frequently.
>>
hi OP, that image isn't "modeled" that's work of michael andrew nash and it's sculpted in zbrush.

If you wanna know how long that kind of process takes then here's a playlist from marco plouffe.

3D models don't normally contort as they rotate, unlike 2D drawings, which tend to change shape as they animate. You often have to put in effort to make them look a bit less uncanny.

That wouldn't be proof that he's not the OP, he very easily could have just changed the knobs, but that's not even the reason the wireframe looks different. As you can see in my attached image, I have created an exact replica of OP's model (because I am experienced and I use zbrush), but that doesn't mean I am OP just because they are identical.

Always create integrations between elements of your models. Don't clip them in giving it a fake CG look. Most aspiring 3d artist do not do this. At best even the rising stars just cheat with camera angles, lighting and visual obstructions like the fat girl angle shot version of 3D.

Congratulations though on the first cutting of the umbilical cord. It really gets rewarding when you come back to parts of a project you couldn't do and breeze through them with another solution you figured out and when you're cutting videos short because you already get the jist and do it all on your own.

I am playing with the quad remesher in Rhino and the results are good. There is some distortion in render preview due to the way it calculated normals that should go away once I import it in a mesh-based program. In fact that is what happens once I export it as obj and import it in Blender.

The problem is that this turns 6k into 350k faces as the subd model gets converted into a poly model. How do I export it as a subd model directly?

Ideally, I'd want find a way of exporting that preserves the crease data.

There is an option to export just the control mesh. It does not export creases unfortunately. Is there a way to do that.

>>893748
Not what I was looking for. An easy way of triggering that command is by pressing tab.
>>
>>893746
Rhino's ability to convert between NURBs and Subdiv is pretty lackluster. I've read elsewhere than NURBS and subdiv are mathematically equivalent, but that can't be true based on what I see in the program itself. It is really a pity as being able to switch between modeling easily in NURBs and subdiv would be a strong style. Right now Rhino is just not there yet.
>>
>>893776
The boundary surface of subdivision surfaces (=infinite amount of subdivisions) can be converted to NURBS, but not all NURBS surfaces can be converted to subdivision surfaces.
>>
>>893776
Agreed.
Mcneel implemented their subD pretty recently all things considered.

I once had a go at animating on 2s using a model I found online. Probably could be better. Maybe it's because I'm not too versed in animation in general, or maybe it's because the process I used is rather tedious. Seriously, there have been several actual TV shows lately that made heavy use of animating on 2s or 3s, and I suspect they have a much more efficient workflow than something that involves manually deleting things keyframe by keyframe

Seeing as Adobe, in their infinite wisdom, has made the Automation Toolkit only available to different plans. Does anyone have a download for the newest version?

Has anyone heard of @licensestore on Telegram? Is it legit? How many shekels? Do they accept XMR or at least BTC? Burner Telegram account is no problem to me.

Any news on Octane or Redshift cracked for a version of C4D newer than R19? CPU based Redshift that comes with S26 still requires a separate license.

Anyone got a crack for Embergen?

How are characters like this made? Are they based on real people, or are they just created from imagination? Does the artist use various references and just patch together a 3d OC basically? How do you go about creating a semi-realistic character like this?

most of the look is probably just done with a shader/texturing.

I use to sculpt morph for daz3d in Zbrush, i use medical reference for muscle and bones and real life model for proportion. I also have a bit of clay sculpting experience. It helps.
The mesh is one thing, the texture/materials also plays a huge role on the final result.
Today, texture are just 360° hd scan of people, there is a few online business dedicated to it.
You can start from a cube and sculpt to the best of your abilities, some people are just naturally gifted for it. You also can hand paint your own texture, and again the result will dramatically vary depending on your skill.
>>
>>886269
Usually 3d characters for movies or video games are based on concept art made by 2d artists. These 2d artists translate what the art director wants, based on references which can either be based on real life/people or based on other media.

I assume you are struggling when creating characters so my advice would be to just literally copy what other artists do. Don't be afraid to copy other people's work AT FIRST, this way you'll be able to discover and understand what artists do and to then apply it to your own, original work.
