I've been making a few easy 3D models so I can learn Blender for games. I would really like to work on it every single day but I am having trouble picking things to model that would keep me motivated and would be the right choice for a good learning pace.

Any tips?

Keep plugging away at tutorials, then you don't have to "creative" or "inpsired" because you're learning.
Once you git gud enough you can go to artstation and find random 2d concepts or doodles that you like and then make them into 3d. Make a portfolio of it (give credit to the 2d artist whose work you used, you don't have to pay them or anything just mention their name and their artstation page)

I'm sorry do you want to do 3d or not?

sounds like you really don't.

I have a few years experience in Photography, Composition, Postproc and just generally stuff around taking still images.

However doing NSFW 3D Animation for Humans (in blender) is seemingly impossible. The Animations look extremely uncanny and robotic even after hours of tedious, painful and honestly extremely boring work in the NLA. Obviously i am aware that i just have to practice and work on it, but compared to pretty much everything else in 3D(sculpting, rigging, modeling, shading etc) Animation feels very archaic and takes unreasonably long amounts of time. Paired with the fatc that rendering just a few seconds locks you out of your computer for up to 2 days makes the whole ordeal pure cancer.

How the fuck do i git gud at NSFW animations and get them done in a reasonable amount of time? I cant use pre-made animations due to every model out there having a different rig.

Is mixing parts from diferent models, (dunno the word... kitbashing?) done in the industry?

I wonder if I can simply take koikatsu assets like shoes, clothes, hair and add them to a VRoid model and just texture on substance painter.
>>
>>822675
No.
>>
Kit bashing is more used for game modeling than anything else and in that case my studio just scans them in after we finish so we can clean them up. We don't always do it but when we do it's because a model is about to take weeks of effort to detail otherwise.
>>
>>822675
It's def done but rarely for pieces that ought to be tailored to fit a specific shape, such as a characters clothing.
What Op propose sounds more like lazy theft asset flips by inept artists than kitbashing.

Kitbashing stuff lends itself best when you are making art where it's beneficial to the end product if it looks like it wasn't designed by any one person.
Such as when you are making an environment that in reality would have multiple architects that at no point consulted with one another and just iterated or diverted.

I love this thread, I would like to thank duck-sama for gracing us with his wisdom and well explained assertions.

I do agree if you are a 3D artist the path of least resistance to long term success are games, everything else requires a constant unending output that will eventually eat at your soul. If you can manage the undertaking of creating a game and being realistic with your expectations then it's a way better option than everything else out there. The initial task is way more taxing than other endeavors combined but if successful it quickly becomes exponentially easier and has the tallest ceiling for monetary success and fame which lend themselves to an even easier next cycle.

Not everyone is geared for this so I dont blame people for being opposed to the idea, its harder than one realizes but it is worth it if you can manifest it. It's not a bad idea for people to pursue other avenues like selling assets or working for others if they dont see a clear path ahead, it can help them develop their skills if its not something they know or are able to do on their own time, but ultimately games are what you should strive for as your goal.

I prefer having a job

I work as an 3d artist (mostly environmental) but I ended up doing everything by myself.
Theres nothing I hate more than rigging and everything related, skinning, weighting and fighting with all the commands and program options. I can spend like weeks of doing non productive work just by looking for errors, solutions, alternatives and dozens of other problems.
Right now Im wasting days and days of work
My personal tier list

>God tier : sculpting, rendering, post production
>Comfy tier : texturing/painting/baking, lights, composition
>Ok tier : animation, poly modeling, physics
>Meh/boring tier : retopo, UV
>Shit tier : rigging, skinning, weight paint

If a character model is not rigged and made ready for post then all of the work before it has been an act of mental masturbation.

>"I have cooked dinner for you"
>"Can I eat it?"
>"No, but you can still pay me."

Rigging isn't even difficult. You're probably annoyed because you're using Maya which I get it. But in Daz you can have the model rigged in less than 1 day, then you can export it as an FBX to Cascadeur to get that professional-level rig control. Honestly, now that Cascadeur is out I don't understand why people even bother IK-rigging.

You're part of a team. Just creating "art" doesn't help anybody and in a pipeline just being "creative lol" will cause more problems than it's worth.

There's a reason why some concept artists get hired and some don't. What use is a character with an insanely detailed fur coat that took you 1 month to sculpt in a game that's meant to be played on mobile?
>>
>>822549
That depends on the studio retard. Do you think the character designers at Pixar uv-unwrap and rig the models between productions? If it's you and 5 guys, then yeah doing 3-4 different jobs is common, no shit. OP is power ranking said jobs, not about being the "idea guy"

To be honest, a lazy student can do that in less than a year.

Anyone that studies seriously can do better stylization within a year.
