Guess this isn't really a blender specific question, but fuck it.

I don't understand how to model things that are really close together / fold / need to open (think breasts, lips, labia, and so on), easily, and - perhaps more importantly - cleanly. Every time I do one of those things, it just devolves into a mess of unmanageable intersecting geometry that I always struggle to deal with, and that never feels quite right.

So what's the workflow for dealing with these areas of a model? Should I just model everything open / separated, and then pull them into place after the whole modeling process is done, or is there a more elegant way to do it? Any resources that could help me learn how to deal with these things?

>> No.693506

Exactly. Drawing every day won't make you better, necessarily; drawing every day mindfully will make you better.

I kinda always got this done by just getting close but not too close and then when everything is done pulling it together in sculpting.

Curve was 2d, and I checked the points and found nothing odd. Maybe I just didn't check properly. Ended up fixing it after converting to mesh; not a big deal, but a bit annoying.

I'm facing another problem, however. I'm trying to cut 45º angles at the end here, but for some reason the boolean operator doesn't seem to be working properly. If I move one of the pieces it works, but as soon as the side of the cube is aligned with that corner vector it just doesn't seem to work.

>> No.694126

I'm not that anon, but if you just draw the same thing every day you'll plateau and hit a wall. Same goes if you just doodle or draw whatever.
It's important to challenge yourself and be mindful of what you're drawing and why if you want to improve. If you're terrible at drawing bodies, instead of avoiding it and drawing whatever else all the time, draw bodies for a week. You won't get better at drawing them if you draw anything else.

You'll improve definitely, you'll pick up techniques and practices as well, but focused study is the best way to get past the wall you hit when you "just draw". Same goes for pretty much anything else skill based like playing instruments, sports, math, anything that you have to practice to get better at.

Obviously you know all that though and you're taking the piss out of that anon for contradicting himself.

I have a left side of my armature set up to fit my mesh, and I used the ctrl D (duplicate), ctrl M (mirror), X (on X axis) to duplicate and mirror my bones. The bones duplicate in the correct ocation sure enough, but for whatever fucking reason they're slightly rotated so the vertices don't copy to the other side like they should. Any help with why?

Two questions:
Firstly, what did I do here, and how do I fix it? There's this frustrum cutting into my mesh and hiding everything outside.

Secondly, is there a way to have the same workflow as when you're working with dynamesh in zbrush? Dyntopo becomes way too slow way too fast, and I much rather have it the old way, where you just remesh and keep working. I know dyntopo allows us to flood fill a resolution, and I know there are things like the remesh modifier, but I was looking for something a bit more convenient than that.

X-mirro symmetry does copy the weight paint, but only for one bone. If you weight paint the left shoulder for instance it will automatically apply it to the right shoulder, but for the left bone, if that makes sense.

>Honestly what's their fucking excuse for not having it working in 2.8 yet?
They waited for the feature freeze.
Then they waited for the 2.80 API freeze.
All this while they realized that getting it over to 2.80 needs tons of rework and now shit gets a bit hectic because everyone jumped on 2.80 but have to go back to 2.79 for retopo if they got used to Retopoflow.

Ridiculously neat and the thought of having text insta-quad'd almost made me cum.

Perhaps to learn the aforementioned "anything"

After some tweaking i got a better result, but somehow there is 2 problems over here. The hair texture looks awful (Can't blame actualy. I just got the alpha texture but still) and there is a weird shadowing over the ears that honestly i don't know what the actual fuck it is like that. Any suggestions?

>> No.695800

Is this Drakengard 4?

>> No.695802

Use hashed blending instead of alpha blending for the hair.

>> No.695805

Just looks like Maya's Quad Draw. It's okay, but I still just use Blender for retopo every time. Don't see the purpose at all.

>> No.695811

It alredy is with hash blending for both shadow and blend mode

I'm trying to create a cyberpunk hack and slash game. NieR, Drakengard and DMC are my main references for the combat style

How does my rig look so far? Are the bones positioned correctly? This is so confusing.

It's my first attempt rigging a model.

>> No.695841

Are the hand-prongs intended to be bendy? If not you'd be better off just tying each prong to one bone each.

How would I do that,
Is there a way I can bend bones?

>> No.695844

Oh and one more question,

Do my Bones HAVE to be Inside the model?

It gets quite tedious trying to keep all the bones from poking out

>> No.695848

No need to bend them if the entire hand-prong is a rigid piece, it'll copy the open-closing rotation of a single bone just fine. Bones should outline how the model rotates, not necessarily its exact shape. If it's not a joint or some other locus of deformation, the bones don't need to form a joint there either. Not the person you were having the conversation with at first, just to avoid confusion.

You can use stick visuals to make them smaller

hey blendlets, I have this mutated self-intersecting mass and I want to rectify it into a single mesh with interior and exterior faces, for 3d printing.
I've been trying to use the face intersect (knife) tool, but it still doesn't seem to create a boundary between the two parts, so I can extract the interior guts.
Any help? Or is it likely I've got faces that are so coplanar, it farts out on me?
Thanks in advance.

Okay done but it still runs like shit, that didn't happen in 2.79.
Low fps when moving anything, like 3 or 5.

What tutorials do I pirate to get good at sculpting in blender? Because from what I tried sculpting in blender looks like cancer.
