That was my hopeful goal with it. Give something for anons to have fun with and hopefully keep them making things. I know they're not making things to go specifically in the OP, but I think it does feel nice to get some recognition for something someone put time into. Maybe they'd want to keep doing more.
You keep modelling, I'll keep adding.

It did for me. The only thing that puts me off now is that every time I open Blender, work on something for a bit, and then close Blender my computer starts running like complete shit. I think I need a fresh install of Windows.

If it wasn't included it was probably one that was too difficult to grab out, an environment, unfinished to a point where it wouldn't really fit, or it looked like it was still being worked on and I didn't want to put something in that might be finished in the next thread.
I realize there's unfinished pieces in the OP to begin with, but they either seemed like the people were done working on them and left them like that, modeled well enough to stand alright on their own, or I could use them in one of the existing "scenes" in the OP (like the guy in the jet toilet).


If you really want your stuff in the next image, just point out the post from the previous thread and I'll put it in. I'm not trying to exclude anybody on purpose, and I'd rather not have shit flinging start because someone wasn't in it. That's not really the point.

Exported superhuman Starfleet out of DAZ, been on that IK-less rig for so long. The plug-in rig generators in Blender could not solve for this mesh so I have been using the fbx rig that exported with it. Now, there is a Mixamo plug in for Blender. Uploaded mesh to Mixamo, downloaded new rigged character, used Mixamo to Blender plug in to generate nice IK rig. Tonight, we will run Hanna the same way. Hopefully we can come out with a nice shot. So let's see where we go from here. I Starfleet promise to post. Really the only question is: jazz or chill mix?

average islands scale can help with getting their relative sizes correct and "pack uvs" can get you a good enough result

The guy who replied to you wasn't me, but if you want actual advice, he was pretty close.

soften-up the facial features. shrink the ears a bit, maybe make them floppier. looks more like a bat as-is. nose could be smaller.

most importantly - usually, even in very serious works, anthropomorphized characters are given a softer "cartoonish" appearance if you expect an audience to sympathize with it. when I say "cartoonish", i mean that the features are softened/smoothed (dewrinkled), the teeth become larger, smoother and more uniform, the behavior light and amicable, etc.

when you literally transplant a dog head on a human body, well - it's pretty self-explanatory. it looks like a victim of some unholy, schizo surgical procedure from the 12th century.

when you model, imagine what it will look like fully dressed - where the fur (texture or otherwise) will go, color composition, etc. this is the foundation. build up from there

But anon, I kinda wanted it to be edgy.
I was inspired by this image you see, I wanted something that looked dangerous. By relatable I meant "oh yeah he's got human features," not "oh yeah that thing looks friendly."
You are right on the nose though, and I'll soften it up a bit, but I sure as hell am not making it appealing. I need it to be raw.
Thanks for the advice though.

I think it was the original pose that made it look awful, but with the facial emotions/attitude and scenarios you've used it's unironically a 9/10 for a base model.

obviously you can do it with just textures but you're going to have to do it for every object and it's a static thing so if you plan to aninate it then it's likely that it's going to look bad from a certain angle

>>848500
Some people (blender users mostly for some reason) tend to mistakenly use shader to describe basic materials. While not necessarily wrong, the term shader should be reserved for more complex all encompassing functions, such as those that apply to an entire scene to change it's appearance. An example being a cel shader.
Presumably you mean materials to which the answer is simple. A texture is a single map and a material/shader describes a complete set of instructions for how something will end up looking.
In other words, a shader consists of several functions and potentially several maps (textures).
A texture is just a flat image.

Hopefully that makes sense to you.

>>848508
the hair looks bad, is it because of denoising?

>>848514
>the term shader should be reserved for more complex all encompassing functions
?

Here you have a perfectly valid shader:

shader constant (
color Cin = color(0.49, 0.31, 0.10),
output color Cout = color(1, 1, 1)
) {
// nigger
Cout = Cin;
}
>>
>>848560
Yes, I said should be. Not is.
It is my personal preference to separate the terms in this manner as it's quite evident that not doing so causes endless confusion for people.
No one would come here asking what a shader is if you didn't have a bunch of different applications using their own terms synonymously with it.
As for your example I believe that goes under "a complete set of instructions for how something will end up looking".

Shouldn't be too difficult with some researching online. Plenty of people have worked on different styles of cel shading for all kinds of applications over the years and most of it is available online.
I think one of the issues with your picture is the texture just doesn't look very good. It's a basic spray paint brush it looks like. Imagine trying to draw that.
The reason the video you linked looks convincing enough is that the texture have been done with actual drawing techniques in mind. Try using something that looks like pencil shading. In other words, lines.

The environment and lighting also isn't terribly dynamic because you've just started. It'll look better as you add more detail.

It's like you completely forgot that the ribcage exists. Keep the egg shape in mind for the ribcage and then layer muscle on top of that. I usually think in terms of bone -> muscle -> fat -> skin. Don't be afraid to set up reference images in the orthographic views to get a sense of proportions because your sculpt is so unbelievably thick like someone pulled them by the nipples forward and then hung them so their body extended. This is like if the human centipede had no bones and turned into an actual, fleshy centipede.

Don't beat yourself over the head. Aim high, but pat yourself on the shoulder if you are better today than you where yesterday, even if you are not reaching that high level you aim for.
Constant dripping hollows out a stone.
If you're not satisfied with a project, either push yourself and do not stop until you are or if you feel you lack experience, increase the amount of projects you finish and see them as exercises. The more you do, the better you get - just observe and see that you don't stagnate, you want to slowly build up your comfort zone.

-populate your scene with more props, and use saturated colors as your environment light's colors

-the shadows on your chair or whatever that is looks unrealistic, as it doesn't come from the window itself, and gives away the "closed room" effect you're going for
-last but not least, add a plane outside the window, and give it a texture of the night sky (ofc turn off its specular and roughness)

to be fair, there's not a lot of improvement there, compared to what the other anon suggested. it's still wrong, but in different ways (thigh/ham, shoulder). instead of working just on the silhouette, sculpt the full correct shapes. lighting can easily reveal improper forms.

to save time in the long run, you should consider attaching better pose-space deformations to your rig.

- use a toon shader (a really basic one is just doing Diffuse BSDF -> Shader to RGB -> color ramp with high contrast -> multiply object color over that)
- dont use freestyle for cel-shading, use inverse hull (solidify with negative thickness, flipped normals, set its material to something appropriate)

This is presenting challenges. Hard for my level of skill. How to achieve a natural render? Have not even tackled that yet. First, we have to get a natural pose with two characters. Started by roughing in two poses with reference as background. I see the Mixamo rig losing influence on the hand - checked weights and they look okay. I'm going to go ahead with it because I can still pose with the rig but I want to get it close with the rig and sculpt the detail. There is a lot of work to do here. That is where this WIP is at.

Making gigantic spaghetti mess of a SD graph should be illegal. I'm trying to understand what the hell were they thinking, but it just goes in every direction. I need to create my own materials for a paid project, but this is just too much for me right now. Feel like crying, this shit is insane. I think I'll just have to do it manually in Painter. Goddamnit, if I'm an environment artist, that doesn't mean I should be an expert material artist as well. 3D salaries are horribly low when you consider how much knowledge you need to possess to achieve anything.

If I took the left path in life instead of the right one, now I could have been chilling and writing some dumb frontend code in Angular, being handholded by 10 different libraries and 70 github pages opened ready to be copy pasted, making buttons change colors and displaying user names in tables, all for big bucks.

Hardest part first then, the hands. Got them close with a rig. The meshes are roughed in as good as they're going to get with the two rigs. Got to sculpt the hands together next round. The hands I believe is the most important aspect of this, they convey something but I'm not sure. We know we need the hands nailed in the right pose so we can work into the forms from them. Think we can pull this off? Of course we can. The forms appear right in the space and Blender has sculpt mode, I got a pen. Aside from the technical details after the hands... you know the story, it's been written a hundred times. Anyone could finish it. But the hair. That has to fall correctly as well. So the challenges here are the hands and the hair.

So I was sculpting some leg and it came across as very lumpy. This would be very, very bad topology causing it, right?

Yes, you can make hand painted stuff in substance. It even has a dota 2 preset shader. People say 3d coat is better, but I've never used it so can't compare.
>>
I've done a thing a few times and I'm not sure if I should be banned from the industry for this lol:

>having trouble achieving enough detail in albedo?
>just lightly overlay a photo texture on top of everything

Is this bad, bros? Right now I'm working on some wood material in SD and getting all those color variations is an absolute pain so I tried to overlay a photo, and it just werks. It still gets my own height, roughness variation, but it just mixes parts of my shitty albedo with the good one. Feels like I'm breaking some law by doing it though.

I actually heard that method was used a lot by pros in the past during Photoshop texturing times.
>>
>>849180

You're not supposed to have good topo on a high poly sculpt, you absolute moron. Add 2-3 subdivision levels to this and you won't see any 'lumps'
>>
>>849204
at 3 million points it just gets harder to manage.
>>
>>849205
which is why you only subdivide when you can no longer push anything out of your current level or when you need smoother surface.
>>
>>849206
Look, I got this 700 euro zbrush course and that guy was all about the clean topology.
>>
>>849208
then retopologize by hand, you lazy fuck
>>
>>849203
I use free textures for that, so it should be clear. But yeah I guess the end result is the only thing that matters. BUT - I actually managed to get pretty close with pure SD now, might not even need to overlay anything. But then again, why NOT, if it still gives a bit more variation?

I've seen that people are experimenting with scans more and more now, there is no reason to chase that "100% made in SD" if you can achieve easier, better and faster results with combinations of sculpting, scans, proceduralism and handpainting. I'm thinking of putting these SD textures through SP as well and do some handpainting with stencils. I enjoy handpainting a lot and can achieve some specific details with it much faster.
>>
>>849212
Then I don't see anything wrong with it. The opposite, actually. If it helps you get better results, and be more efficient with your time, the wrong thing should be not to do it.

The nice thing about 3dcoat is that you can also throw your textures, in layers, into photoshop and any changes you make in photoshop gets updated on the fly. I'm also interested in hand-painted textures since imo there's just nothing that looks better. So the work-flow above is what I'm planning on doing.
I don't know much about substance painter but I've heard it many times on here before and whenever you see professionals do hand-painted it always 3d-coat.
Now 3-d coat, although I imagine it probably is the best for this specific task, is still kinda sucky. I mean it's not bad but I'm already a bit familiar with photoshop and as far as painting is concerned it's the best. That's why I'm planning on doing the preliminary work in 3d-coat and then the fine tuning in photoshop.
You can even paint directly on 3d models in photoshop, unfortunately that setup is pure cancer, it's very uncomfortable navigating 3d objects in photoshop.
Hope this helps.

What kind of tutorial should I do in order to use an imported (appended then localised) model of Judy Alverez to create lewd images with? I am very much struggling. The thing I used to hide the IK/FK displays for her body have disappeared, then while I was trying to fix that my game got stuck in Pose mode and now it won't come out of it again.

I clearly need some kind of tutorial, I did one where we made a donut but that knowledge didn't apply to this very much. Same with one where we made a treasure chest. I also did one where we made a basic rig, but that didn't help much either. I also did one where I learned to use the sculpting tools, and it was fun, but it also didn't help much with this.

honestly i don't consider myself a very good artist, second, the commissioners looked at my portifolio, filed a request (a sort of stylized tractor) and offered me quite a bit of money for it.
the thing is i never got a commission before and i got a bit scared when i saw what they were offering, but as i showed them the final result and they liked it, but pointed out the tracks were a bit too sharp.

i'm just a bit shocked how this happened all of a sudden and i had no history of commission work before. anyways, i'm actually more happy with the fact that i worked for some people for the first time in my 3d "adventure" than the payment i got.

I didn't actually manage to do that. There's some semi-transparent pixels all along the outline, but it's over a black background. To turn off the AA to reach what I currently have, you set Filter Size in the Film area to 0.01. I was trying to get a hard edge effect so I could have it over a transparent background, but I couldn't quite figure it out. Maybe later I will.

Been spending the last month or so putting together a bunch of characters for this one dude's clothing brand. They're all his designs, so what's there is what I had to go off of.
To be honest, I didn't have much to work with, since they were all pretty damn abstract (apparently they're all based on real life bugs).

It's my first time doing anything like this, but I think they've come out pretty well all things considered. I really tried my best to give each of them some kind of personality. Apparently the end goal is to have all of them together and animate them. So that's the next phase of the operation.

Thank you for that very insightful comment.
For what it's worth, I noticed that too, and tried to not make them look like that, at least as much as I could.

I don't know. It's not my place to ask, nor is it really my concern. He's got the money to pay me for the work, and paid half in advance. So as long as the money's good, I don't care.

>>849725
Cute, you know meaningless topical buzzwords.
They're spheres with faces. There's not many ways to interpret it without them looking like "globohomo shit". That's the common theme for that type of look, big ass rounded shapes and spheres.
If you've got a better way to go about recreating them that stays 1:1 with the designs, I'd love to hear it. Since I've only got my own perspective to look at the problem, and there's plenty of ways to skin a cat.
But you probably don't.

your client is a hack and if it really took you a month to model those so are you.
>>
>>849697
bit more surface detail would have been nice.
you've tried to go for it on the green one, but could push it a bit more.
the hat looks like it's made out paper mache or smth tho.
if you got paid and client's happy you've done your job so who cares what we think.
>>
>>849739
It didn't take me a month like I spent the entire time slaving away at them. Each one probably took about a day or two, but I had other projects so it took a month. I think altogether it's somewhere around 10-12 hours for all of them. Though any time would be wrong for someone like you. I could say it took 2 hours for the lot, and that would be too short, or I could say the same thing and it'd be too long to spend on it. Since all you really want to do is be a dick.
I'm not about to badmouth a client just in case one of you faggots with nothing better to do gets extra vindictive and tries to trace shit back, but I wasn't too impressed with the shirt designs either. But that's just what I had to work with.

That's not really the point though.
Really, I think you're just being a huge faggot because you're a worthless no-modeler and anytime someone posts ANYTHING, regardless of quality, you can't help but feel threatened because they're actually working on something while you bitch and gripe on a slow as fuck basketweaving forum, while you wait for someone to post another thread about Blender.
But what do I know, I'm just someone who actually posted something to the wip thread.

>>849741
Yeah I was a bit iffy to go super crazy with the surface detail, since I don't know how well it'll read at a distance. There is some of it on the other models, but I think a lot of it gets smeared away with the denoising. Which was pretty aggressive since they're just previews. I can see about pushing the texture and detail with some of them though.
I think the denoising fucked up the hat too, but it's also probably because of my lazy texture mapping.

Stardate: 47634.44 Setting off on a path to sculpt the hands holding so that we could work into sculpting the whole form. We then hid the girl and noticed the male hand was smaller than in our reference. Sculpting to match the photo was deforming it too much beyond normal. Knowing our only chance was to correctly place the hands, we wondered, and then decided our camera focal length was different from our reference. Then we peered into the metadata of the image itself from Properies to discover the reference had a focal length of 35mm, half of what our camera was set at. Changing and repositioning the camera and the male reveals that the hands in our camera space and the hands in the reference are close in size. Following our intuition we proceed. And although on planet Earth as the citizen Anons await word of our further progress, we travel near the speed of light, and what appears as days are only minutes, traces of thought lost in the trajectory of light.

you don't need to have a meltdown on literally the anus of the internet.

while you're right that most people here suck or don't even model at all, that anon is actually correct that these character designs are just terrible (maybe save for exception the last one, still bad) and taking one month to model simplistic designs like this just show that you're not very skilled or you're really busy IRL. I'd say it is the first.

But anyways, you're making bank off this, so who am i to judge? Good for you. Keep improving.

hows my bazooka arm looking bros?
>>
>>849787
I think there's way too many gears in the hinge part for no good reason. The entire arm is simple, but there's gears on the outside of the hinge because ??? Either balance the arm out with a bit of gear stuff throughout, or take it down by a lot. Besides, from a distance all those gears are just gonna mesh into a blobby gold shape.

yeah i agree, gonna take that shit out and make a simple joint.

Yo bros, how would you animate a tentacle if you have no experience animating in 3D? Currently my tentacle animation is very janky. Like it can't turn very organically. Any advice?

Not related to the pic and not that anon. I know people say you should avoid including things that serve no purpose. I was watching Alien last night and the underside of the Nostromo is full of what seems like pointless stuff, most sci-fi spaceships and things have this kind of design. What gives? None of it seems like it has any function to it so why is it there?

Fair enough, I just jumped on the defensive since everyone decided to dogpile me at the start for no reason except they don't like how it looks. If they would have at least given some critique instead of saying it like shit and I'm a hack for designs I have no control over, then I probably wouldn't have lost my shit. I posted to get some extra eyes on it, to see where I could improve them. If I had known it was going to cause such a stir, I wouldn't have posted it.

Like I said in the previous post, I had a number of other projects to complete for other clients, not just this one. So the month was taken up by more than just this, this being one of the smaller projects.
This type of project isn't my usual fare, but I accepted it because the dude comes to me for a bunch of other projects. It felt like it could be a learning experience since I mostly do animations and environments, and so characters would be something new. They seemed simplistic enough that I could model and animate them without worrying too much about the uncanny valley, or human motions looking off.
I'd post my actual work, but at this point I don't want to give anons the ammo.

For the linework, go to Render Properties -> enable Freestyle. Then you can change the Freestyle settings at the bottom of View Layer Properties. (This tripped me up for a bit, being on separate tabs) You can also select + right-click lines in line edit mode and Mark Freestyle. Then if you enable Edge Mark (pic related), Freestyle will draw lines over them. For the shading, you create a material that is just: Diffuse BSDF -> Shader to RGB -> ColorRamp -> Material Output (surface). Then set the colors of the ramp to whatever for your lighting and shadow. (This is all in Blender, to be clear. The blue battlecruiser stuff is mine too, but it's more complicated)
>>
>>849945
A pretty big annoyance is that Freestyle is a post-process kind of thing (hopefully that could change?), so you have to render an image to check your settings and see if you like them.

>i cant think of anything to make that i actually can make
Make them anyway, and learn along the way. What's important at this stage is for you to get familiar with the program and process of manipulating meshes. Do what you can, and when you run into a problem, look up how to solve it and continue on. It's a bit better than following a tutorial since you're taking that info and applying it to your own project. Which makes internalizing the steps a bit easier.
If you can't think of anything, just take random objects around the house and model them until you can think of something.

It helps to have some basic vocabulary in your arsenal. That being said, search what you can, check out the results, and you'll more than likely find the vocabulary you need to actually make a proper search. Odds are there's probably plenty of people with your exact problem, and there's plenty of solutions.
If you don't find anything, just ask in the questions thread here on /3/. There's a handful of nice anons that will either point you in the right direction, or give you a full solution.
