I am addicted to daz3D

I have redered so much porn with the software it's getting insane. It's amazing though that once you can create your own porn you can truly fullfill all your fantasies.

On a good side note,
my coomer brain forced me to become an insanely talented 3D artist to the point that I moved into ZBrush and sculpted something and got an award for it and then found a job in the industry.

But I still can't stop using Daz and make more porn.

also sirs don't be a pajeet daz3d is super easy
just check youtube
Stop replying to yourself, wtf
no it's based and the only way to give underrated things attention

what was the switch from daz to brush like

I use Blender for character and prop modelling but I absolutely loathe using it for making game environments. All I need is something similar to Valves Hammer Editor except that I can export it to the engine of my choice

It's a shame because something like this capability Source Engine had seems nifty as fuck for level design.
damn that looks good, I'm going to try it
Doom Eternal still uses level editors, thats why its so optimized.
does UE5 have CSG editing capabilities on par with the quake 1 (1996) level editor yet? because UE4 made it as inconvenient as possible to create anything more interesting than a lumpy terrain and an assortment of meshes

You mean Doom 2016, and no, snapmap still isn't the same thing. It can't create geometry. It can only position pre-made structures.

I did this in 3 weeks just with photoshop and blender, I have a crappy computer that slows me down a lot, but I think I'm too slow and I don't know if I open commissions, how much would you pay for this in 3 weeks ?

maybe when i earn money and have a better pc and better tools like substance painter i can reduce my working time but i don't know and what is your average working time ?

Honestly this is one of the best i've seen here. If you really did this only with photoshop and blender as you claimed, i can certainly say you'd get much quicker results with substance.

what took me more time was to create the normal maps that I had to make them by hand, I doubt that substancer has any advantage in comparison to blender with this since the normal maps usually come from 3d models, anyway the limitations of my laptop stopped me a lot but thanks, although the substancer designs don't become a bit generic with time ?

thx anon :3

the problem is that I use the sketchfab engine, the pic of the thread comes from there, so I have many limitations, but I plan to render it with blender and I will improve many aspects, thanks :)

ill put this blundly, the result isn't bad, but i'm not paying 3 weeks worth of time for that result.

for what you charge, minimum wage as a base and then add on what you think your time is worth
You took 3 weeks to create that.
Was it for lack of knowledge, workflow etc or you really took this long even having all knowledge necessary?
If you had to create this from zero now, would you take 3 weeks as well?

>Alot of people just want to turn 2D concepts in the 3D art.
Oh man... I won't argue, but I just find this sad. I mean, I get it - majority of 3D jobs have you recreate concepts, so it makes sense that a majority of people working in 3D would just want to do that. But it feels wrong to even call yourself any kind of an "artist" then.

Imagine any other medium of art where artists are just recreating other people's works. Doesn't really happen often, unless it's for practice. I guess I don't understand the lack of personal drive to create original works in your medium. You'll be bringing other people's ideas to life at a job anyway, why don't you at least try to do your own thing for personal projects? Any artist has a need to share their thoughts and feelings with the world through their work. 3D "artists" are in that context practically mute. You're just a no-name cog in a machine doing the work that anyone else technically competent can easily do as well, which means you're replaceable.

>>it's the year 2033, one click solutions to turn any 2d image into 3d

good luck
It's more that drawing helps people learn their fundamentals easier than fucking around with a technical program. Lower barrier to entry and all that.

Personally, I don't think that drawing is the way to go, since photography is a better analogue that teaches the same concepts, but without drawing you lose a lot of important info about form and how to deconstruct things.
I think to really get a well rounded base, you should at least get a basic grasp of most of the main art mediums; drawing for forms/structure, sculpture for 3d thinking, painting for color theory, photography for composition and lighting. They all have their own unique benefits that contribute to 3d.

Has anyone made this thing work without crashing?

I didn't have high hopes, and it has that smell of abandonware, but nevertheless, downloaded it to try, and it just crashes, high poly count, low poly count, nasty or clean meshes, it just shits itself.

AutoRemesher, Automatic quad remeshing 1.0.0-beta.3

works fine.
>that ugly white capture bar
do windows10 really?
Why? Quad remesher/Zremesher is the best one on the market and easily piratable. Autoretopo still sucks for most things, but ye, just use that if you have to.
we already have instant meshes, what's the point of this?

i want to practice 3D everyday but most days i wake up not knowing what to make in 3D and some days i even skip doing anything because of it
how do you guys find ideas of stuff to do for practice ??
13 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Ironic. You're the one asking for "ideas" on shit to model like you have an acorn for a brain. You dont even know what or why you want to model. Fucking ameoba.
did you read the OP??????
i can think stuff to make
but i cant do it every day right after i wake up and thats usually the time when i start practicing of 3D these days
i just want to make something that i dont know to practice everyday and get better
when you think of stuff to make, write it down. then when you wake up you have a list to work off.

sometimes my ideas are too good to be made for a single practice session
thats a good tip though i really should do that
zbrush is both easy and retarded.

typically you use maybe 20 tools and they can all be placed wherever you want, this is a plus

the negative is creating new terms for what already exists, having 3 different ways to save something and all but 1 fucks you hard, so if you try to find what you want and you know what its called, you are fucked, but that makes it infinitely harder for someone who doesn't know the terms they need to look for in the first place.

blender will get you where you want to go, sculpting will be fine, you may have to adjust how you model something due to performance reasons, but you can do fairly high res with it with little issue.

What programs are professional but easy to use? Also free. There's no need to be even that easy, something that is fun to use. I have used Blender and I'm thinking about trying something other too.
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
Thanks, I will consider it.
>easy to use
>everything's in fucking moonspeak
ZBrushCoreMini is a free, non-commercial use version of ZBrush. It will let you experiment with the basic features of the software and also give you something to compare to Blender's sculpting feature set. You can find out if you're a Coke or Pepsi guy.
Why even bother having an English welcome if nothing else is translated
may as well add 3d coat to that, apparently a 30 day trial turns into a free non stripped down educational version, its all I really want for dicking around, not needing to pirate because of features locks and better performance then blender at the moment.

Generic design. Generic proportions. No clothing etc
It's basically the same reason why most beginner artists start out drawing goofy eyes, mouths and stuff. Most start out drawing "standard shapes" for face/body parts they sort of have in mind instead of looking at things analytically and trying to emulate what they actually see. It's even worse if they start out trying to do go the stylized way before getting the basics down first.
The furry artists that impress you most likely studied/practiced actual human and animal anatomy for quite a while already and are able to bring it all together well.
That being said OP is far from being really bad and is actually quite pleasing to look at, especially his update >>837543. If he'll keep up and stays willing to better his skills, he'll improve further, no doubt. There are actual abominations, especially in the 3D field if you take a quick look around places like FA or DA.
but rabbits r vegan u faggog
as the previous guy said, looks too generic and even kinda uncanny.

also >>839047 shut the fuck up cris you don't even model anything
They eat their own shit which is an animal byproduct.
They are vegetarian.

I am new. Give it to me straight. What 1 (one) software should I start on? Blender? Zbrush? Xnalara?

Thanks a lot. For a hobbyist who just wants to design and make original characters, and has no interest in animation, would Blender be fine?

How do you texture, light, and render properly when your monitors black isn't even close to black because you bought it in 2013 and its a TN?
Dial it in so that you can see every part of the dynamic range as well as is possible on your device
Peridically sanity check your renders by comparing the histogram/levels of each channel in your rendering to see how they compare to professional images of your liking.

While it is a handicap to have a cheapo monitor it's not the end of the world, well composed images should look good on all devices including 2013 monitors.
Remember that people worked CGI on hardware way less impressive than what you have and back in the 90's even a budget monitor from the 2010's that would've been hot shit.

This image can help you out to figure if you are off. If you can see the difference between all fields you're gold in terms of whitepoint/blackpoint even if your monitor is a bit washed out in true blacks. If not tinker with your settings til you can discern as much as possiblem.
