Wagie, you have five (5) minutes to fix this AI-generated blob model.

Yes of course it will be 75 dollars
This company is a fraud. They just pay a fucking Indian to make a 3d model of your shitty drawing. I don't even think there is actual blob AI tech like that article says there is.
Have you read the YouTube comments, they gave me a chuckle, why is not free, make it free for a year, that shit is worthless, if everything is for free nobody would pay for anything in the future, even indie videogames so more money for EA, and Bethesda, thanks a lot for the art democratisation!
The models look boring and the topology is completely unworkable. Why give yourself more work for less of a payout

Why are there like 5 different ways to add basic physics to objects in blender, half of which aren't officially supported, and every single one is fucking wonky to use and hard to figure out which one to use.

All I want to do is add some physics to a characters face so when something collides with it, it somewhat realistically reacts i.e. punching a characters face but apparently this is a really hard thing to fucking do properly. It makes me feel like i'm better off using a game engine to simulate certain type of physics
>anon finally realizes blender is hobby software made from random pajeets with no clear direction cause its open source

Theres always ziva in maya. Otherwise blendshape it.

Physics in blender will always be wonky cause development is scattered. Could try the Gravity Collider addon on some face bones. Its the least wonky and is free. Theres simplicage but its just to fuckin unintuitive to use, may as well just so it manually.

You've just proved his point? The hair in the op is obviously poly modeled.
just ask the author of the model on twitter
anything thats optimised is a haircard always and forever and ever and ever again in videogaaymess.

thats handpainted haircards mixed with triface hair for volume in some places. The mesh tells you how it was made.

you can do this in all 6 directions with the quad sphere if you want
or just boolean the same tube through the sphere twice, it's really the redundant sphere that's causing the issue
having your hand held through a tutorial is not a challenge. most beginners should learn basic shapes and poly modeling principles, with a "learn by doing" approach. that's how you develop critical thinking and problem solving skills, which are essential to making what you actually want to make. when I first learned 3D in 2013 the first thing they taught us was a fucking pencil. then we did a coffee cup.
it's an excellent starting point actually.

Boomer coomers are either too boomer to understand internet, and function under the mistaken assumption that they can post their face and not be harassed by the cyberpolice (consequences will never be the same) or...

Used Usenet back in the 90s and are in the mistaken assumption that they can post anything fetish under a thin veneer of plausability and it'll be ignored and taken seriously. Which, to be perfectly honest, at a time when the Interweb (the 2000s) was in a far better state, was more or less the truth.

Boomer coomers, either type 1 or 2, are honestly pretty cool old dudes. They tend to be pretty reasonable, pretty cool, in a dad way. They'll absolutely talk about the Iso setting of camera that could (weirdly) most match realistic thigh high pantyhoses, and how it would be great if they learned how the material could refract light like real life thigh highs, but aside that, pretty cool.

Which is a solved problem BTW, HH has the solution. He makes the objectively best thigh highs.

Just moving a character is not enough. You have to render it correctly, put effort in lighting, work the camera, video editing, sound and music. Your not done in any level, the best you can upload is a sloppy video.
organic modelling pretty much. I had a lot of experience with different kinds of art, there's a lot of skill overlap between drawing and sculpting.

I bought Zbrush 2021 for 1000$ and Painter for 200$. I use Maya over blender simply because I can get an edu license indefinitely using a blank pdf every year. The only thing I pirate is Photoshop. I even have access to the secret club and the 10k hours fb group but alas 3d is all but a hobby to me. I just want to make coom garage kits like those japanese I follow on X. I say the 1200$ I paid for was well spent.

What kind of PDF is it? My college email doesn't work anymore and I want to see if there's a way to get back into Maya.

>Since my goal is le epic anime pornography

Oh ok, you do you. Not sure you're trying to convince other people or yourself to stick to Blender. Most coomers don't go through the entire pipeline so all that plug-ins are overkill when they just grab free models from Smutba.se or repurpose MMD/Daz models

Blender has visual gizmos if you want to control the camera like in C4D in 2.8 and newer. I don't know how Maya does it.
What other open source software exists?

Which are specifically for games?

What works for me while learning Godot is:
1. Walk through the simplest tutorial (pong) I can find on YouTube, doing the work in tandem with the presenter.
2. Go through the tutorial again and look up the code documentation for literally everything he mentions. Function header, parameters, return values.
3. Go back to the code and slightly modify it, adding new features and asking questions of others on the Godot chat/steam/discord/etc.
4. Continue adding new features until I'm satisfied.
5. Increment the complexity of the tutorial to find on YouTube and repeat from step 1. So Snake is next. Then space invaders. Then tetris. Then mario. Then final fantasy 1. Then zelda 1. Then I'm actually making games I want.

My background is in romhacking/modding, and I have about 1.5 years of community college for computer science under my belt, so maybe I have an advantage here.

Try taking a class on Blender if you feel it will improve your motivation, then follow my "tutorial extended into project" learning model.

I was really burned out from a shitty school, I know how hard it is overcoming a mental/emotional block and the resulting urge to procrastinate. What works for me is refusing to hate myself, to love myself the way my parents should have loved me. It's possible to nurture yourself, and once you learn you will have a power few others do.

Beyond that, I make and remake organized lists of things to do, and pay attention to what tasks throw me off my routine/workflow. Something as simple as having an reference book for the software you use (physical or pirated) reduces cognitive bottlenecks brought on by google searches.
Im on video 4 and ive never wanted to murder a tutorial guy more ij my whole life

Lmao yes there are plugins for this. Just google grug.

You need autorig because it has the name PRO on it, and that is a good reason to have it

Again failing at understanding color management, you didn't do anything that requires color management. You just mess up with the lighting or texture, no amount of photoshop is going to fix that.

What you did in blender was not color management, it's a system that puts colors in different lighting/texture. That' not color management. That is not your job as 3d artist, your job is to make art within the guideless as told by your boss.

It's my job as someone with adobe certification and access to said product to create ads, posters and internet marketing.

You do not have any experience in photoshop, so you should not work with critical ad market campaigns.

3D artist do not change the workflow, you aren't allow to modify photoshop or related adobe products unless told to do so.

You will follow the boss plan or get fire.

shut up anon, you dumb fuck. Blender isn't a real professional software and you believe such conspiracy theories. Color management is a hoax in Blender, this is how a real color management works in Maya:

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I dont need color management or am i being trolled?
Because they are mentally ill freetards. Just like the people who have been saying Linux will replace windows and Gimp will replace Photoshop for the last 20 years.
I am a blender user, and I could not give a shit if it is industry standard or not, I just take the jobs that list blender in them, which are a lot in the indy industry. Blender is just a fucking software like Maya or max, being a fanboy over a software is worse than being a marvel fan.

yes we're going to make everything in AI
in 1994 that kind of art was considered top tier. You'd get jobs thrown at you
Hell you'd get a job with NOTHING and then invent your own techniques on the job while getting paid, make the OP and be considered a genius.
Cant get started like that anymore. All the kids who did it right and worked hard just to turn 18 this year will lose to AI
>All the kids who did it right and worked hard just to turn 18 this year will lose to AI
AI is
1) theft
2) same-face
3) just doesnt look good
Same as now, just more primitive
Look at 3D Studio (DOS) to get an understanding
The output of AI is based on how well it was trained. The reason you call AI "sameface" is because the most popular AI image creators are using the exact same setup and training set.
