>>742576Is this game topology? I thought triangles weren't acceptable there because the subdiv will pinch?
>>742681its up in the hair it doesnt matter
>>742686So if the character was bald, you'd have to keep all that geometry?
>>742579What do you call the black underwears here, I have tried to search for them before for ref but always failedI want to see how they connect under

>>742649how do you make those movable creases?
>>742681you don't just use subdiv like that lmao, it would come with a displace if it were vfx model which would get rid of the pinch anyway

>>742567Hm, is there more of this you can share? :)
here are two images i made, the hands wrist area is not perfect so you need to approximate. Both images line up very well.
>>743229By the same artist? Sure, but it is mostly drawing tips. I am trying to keep things as 3D related as possible.
>>743276This one is really good.
Anyone have any topology tips for a realistic torso?
>>743432I would recommend an actual anatomy book.
>>743467I know what a torso should look like, I just don't know where to begin with the topology
>>742567Have it in japanese?I dont speak english.
Some people may find this useful.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFEIS26VOqk
>>744532damn, good textures can really make a model standout
>>745104The torso picture is particularly good for modeling.
An often ignored detail.
>>746281Which version is the correct one?
>>746318Look at your hand.
>>742562Okay so I dont imagine this exists but I figure i'll start by asking here, does anyone know of anything that can replicate backgrounds in this style? there are some tutorials on setting up blender lighting to mimick anime, but I am more interested in earlier eras of animation than modern era. It doesn't need to look exact, but there's a certain dramatic level of color and simplicity to the edges that I don't see in the other tutorials.
>>746320left is a relaxed position, right is tensed. They're both correct with no context.
>>746281>A lightly gripped hand (left) and a strongly gripped hand (right). When you hold your fist firmly, the little finger and thumb slightly approach (opposite).https://twitter.com/kato_anatomy/status/1267801377343823873
I mean, I get the idea, but I'm still unsure on how to replicate it with bones.
>>746322I would try some Neural Style Transfer on a similarly illuminated and colored scene
>>746530maybe i'm wrong (im a n00b) but how about setting the weight of the green-correspondent and red-correspondent vertices to very low so they don't bend?
>>745611k must be funny
>>746995>Neural Style TransferBased idea. this combined with the other thread makes it seem really promising

how do you animate a texture ?for instance in minecraft, when you hit a block, you're gonna see a bunch of cracks come up on it, how do they do that ?can i use one texture, and in the node editor, add these elements that would come on top of the texture ? in some sort of layer system for instance, where if i have a face, i would have several layers of eyes with different expressions,can you do something like that in blender, and import it through a game engine ?
>>749099You can easily change textures or materials in game engines like Unity or UE4.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oumfJsv7KEk
>>749209>>749210won't it get heavy if i have many different materials for each facial expression ?and can you affect the nodes in a similar way in blender ?i saw you could use uv maps in blender to move the uv on a single image with all the different facial expressions,but unlike shape keys, you can't have keyframes input for it, so i don't know how to make it swap between different uv map during an animation
>>749212Not unless you are going for 4K ultra realistic "I can see the pores" definition. Take a look at this PSX age texture. It's literally what games do right now.

>>749212>unlike shape keys, you can't have keyframes input for it, so i don't know how to make it swap between different uv map during an animationNormally you would let your game engine handle that, but if you wanted to do it in blender without extra geometry, you could have a bunch of image textures tied to mix nodes and animate the blend factor.

>>742562>>744532I see this shit and think "it's so simple!" And then I try to make some simple shit on my own and feel like an amputee trying a marathon. Where can I read about or look at old topology?
>>761525the secret of these is mostly on the texture. you really need to learn to draw since they're basically a 2d drawing slapped onto rough blocks
>>761071>wget -nd -H -p -A jpg,jpeg,png,gif,html -r -l1 -e robots=off -E [link to post]>rm spoiler* *.html *s.png I think having a custom board list at the top with literally nothing in it might help reduce the amount of unwanted pictures you get. I went with 1 level of recursive retrieving to get the full size images, this means you get a lot of images from places the post links to. Luckily, thread thumbnails share the same naming convention as in-thread preview images, so you don't get the entire first catalog page after the rm command (I think "del" should work similarly on windows, I don't know though because WSL). You'll still have a small amount of junk, like board banners and such. 43 of those for me, I think, which you can get rid of manually.
>>761617Let me correct myself. Don't include *s.png to the rm. Add >-R s.jpgto wget. Sorry, I'm retarded.
Not really a guide, but this example for lowpoli cartoony structures is quite good.https://twitter.com/s_nonohara/status/1293469572901687302
>>742572Do you have the image he uses on the background?
>>762175Sorry anon, this is the closest I have.
>>742562Dumb question. I'm coming from graphic design and one of the biggest no goes is to not license things such as textures in anything you use.What is the standard in 3d? Can I just use random T-Poses from the webz to get the anatomy right or do I actually have to credit it? Same with textures. Does anyone care/check for small freelancers and self employed guys if pics are licensed?
>>761650Why not stop at the 4th pic is beyond me.Way too high poly for the style in the end, and for no good reasons.
>>763472it was made for vr, so its pretty much the closest to the camera/your eye that you can get compared to any other game or visual medium

>>764409ironically good advice. Having a good basemesh is important.
>>763561not that guy, but even when textures are shadeless, the high poly count is used for smoother contour, which is especially important for characters that are going to be seen from really up close.

>>766704Texturing truly is key.
>>766704that's just triangulation all models are eventually triangulated in order to be rendered
>>766704I with I had a dollar for every time a dumbass like yourself said that about an obviously triangluated model. Like actually look at the topology dipshit, you can still see the quad loops.

>>746318They're both correct, the right fist is clenched and left is just loosely closed
>>773254You need better bait.
>>744532The thing that bugs me aboutics lile this is the topology is useful to some degree but it does not look suitable at all for animation and it makes me wonder what even is the point.
>>773353If you ever have to work on a budget, like a mobile game, there is a point.
>>751959i thought wizards were meant to be trapped inside the computer, not using it
Can someone break down what I’m looking at here. If I’m making a soldier with different parts and accessories should I just Boolean them onto the main body and parent them to my bones or actually make it all one object. Additionally what the fuck is going on with these pants, is this even service for animation?
>>773589Wtf, NEVER boolean anything, it always a fucking mess. Leave meshes separated whenever possible. Pants dont have a defined way of deforming so it doesnt matter, a knee needs to look like a knee at every flexion angle. The high polycount on pants helps with deformation, it fucking cloth.

>>777752yeah, your pic for instance doesn't have much complexity in its topology going on, the person who did it could probably do a very good drawing of mammi and just made a roughly shaped model with the textures being the most part of its appeal
>>777752Yes, low poly days the texture had to do all the detail work. Even as far as lighting, we didnt have self shadowing or per pixel lighting to add dark regions and highlights or specularity.

Just went through the entire thread and only have two things:All of these images are of females. Almost exclusivelyTwo and more importantly any static clothing references would be nice, namely for pants. There are a few things here that have jackets and coats but there are no references for pants.

>>743159I'm seeing a lot of triangles in the faces. Shouldn't we be concerned about this anons?
>>787873squares are made of triangles
>>787873You can clearly see this was modeled with quads, this is the mesh after triangulation.
>>787873Sometimes, you'll triangulate so you can control shading, particularly if you're going to export to something to another program.It also helps by giving you better control on how you can split a quad, rather than letting another software do it for you when it renders. Software A may split a quad like this [ / ], but software B might split it like this [ \ ]. This will cause issues with shading and texture alignment. It's not a big deal for most things, but it can be for anime type models.By using triangles you decide where to make that split.
>>788472>>788854>>789588so triangles are problematic only they don't follow a quad flow?
>>791783they are problematic when they cause problems for you which can happen but TRIANGLES BAD is a noobtrap
>>791783I don't like seeing them when they're not in a quad-flow, but sometimes they're needed for controlled/explicit shading (most noticeably anime faces,) very low-poly deformations, or anything else I listed before.
>>743162once or twice I've seen people blocking out sculpts with these really narrow cut-outs in blender and I've wondered about it. Is there a process I'm missing? I do a pretty specific flow for blocking out in Zbrush but I don't have a good one for Blender. Could someone explain it to me or maybe have a relevant tutorial that would give me some tips?
