They also annoyed me.  Repeatedly.  In addition, I have made it known that I don't prefer to share my planet with monkeys, yet they will not leave.  They can't even clean up after themselves, and they breed irresponsibly.  They make a horrible noise when you kick them, and they shit anywhere they want.  Plus, they act in ways that defy logic, and bother me while I'm fucking off at work.

Outstanding stuff, Pent.

What spurred you to make these?

I was bored and entered one for their competitions. I scored for shit so I tried again and did better. Then I won the top spot with this
(http://rookery9.aviary.com.s3.amazonaws.com/4353000/4353379_12e1_625x1000.jpg) (http://fxb.worth1000.com/entries/596257/friendly-fire)

At that point I was hooked. The competitions give a theme and a deadline which makes it easier for me to to concentrate on what I'm doing and sort of motivates me to finish. Any time I've tried anything like this before I lose interest and, 9 times out of 10 will delete the shit without even saving it. I'm having a lot of fun here - makes me feel like the artist I've always wanted to be.

Still a lot of modelling to be done on the snail. It's sitting about 170,000 polys just now, prolly take it up to about 500,000 - 750,000 by the time I have the detailing done. Also have to remodel the whole shell again from scratch (that's what I get for not using a reference) Then, when that's done, I'll go ahead and texture it.

Hey P3NT, how about some Discordia-related models?

I dunno which one though, the apple has been done already, and I dunno if you could maybe make an interpretation of Eris? Otherwise I'm not sure what imagery would be good in 3D, but eh, I'd love to see some Discordia propaganda in your awesomeness-style :)

Finished the snail mesh tonight. Started bumpmapping and colouring in. (background is just something to break up the black)

Right now you can get prints of a couple of my photomanips at my deviantart account (http://p3nt4gr4m.deviantart.com/) I got a print of 57, 18"X24" and it came out pretty cool. If you fancy a print of anything in particular gimme a shout and I'll sort it for ya. The 3d stuff, right now is just scribbles for practice, til I get the hang of the whole thing. Wouldn't sell one of those pieces of shit to my worst enemy  :D

Speaking of 3D. I'm done with teh snail now

Okay so you wanted Eris, I've started working on one. I've begun with a straightforward anatomy study, since my anatomy skillz are epic fail as can be seen here. It pains me to have to say this but my weakest suit would seem to be bewbs :x

No idea. It uses material spheres so it's not a full raytrace. Leaves a lot of inappropriate lit parts, especially inside the mouth and stuff so I run an ambient occlusion map in blender then import that back into sculptris to compensate.

Hey P3NT, I wonder, can you also use all these drawing skillz for drawing textures on your 3D putty clay modelling application?

What would be really awesome is, if you were to have one screen for pushing and pulling and molding on the model, and a window next to it where you can draw with the draw pad and see the texture update in realtime :) Probably doesn't do that, though :)

Actually it does have direct tablet support. Doesn't even need two windows, you just paint in the 3d thing. I had a bit fuck around when I first got the tablet but it's on a back burner right now cos I'm having so much fun learning to paint all grown up and proper, like a big boy  :D

and, I have to ask, did you cheat and use a photograph of some model for reference? because otherwise, how did you get the shading on her knee exactly right? I would have had no fucking idea where to exactly put the dark and the light blotches to make it actually look like a real knee like that.

Just a note to look out for, you made a common mistake with copying a picture from a photograph and made the lines on the face too defined. Of course, I'm no artist so I have no idea how to avoid doing that in the future, but maybe try to figure out something in future works.

But I like it. :)

Title: Re: P3nT's Shoops
Post by: Telarus on January 26, 2011, 06:16:44 pm
Getting good there. I'm practicing similar techniques with pencil sketching. They key is laying down a "local tone", a shade of grey that will be your 'constant'. Then you layer the shadows onto that (keeping in mind light angles and making sure the blending is subtle, which I think was Phoxx's critique of the face).

There are 3 types of shadows:
- Form shadows (the part of the object in darkness)
- Cast shadows (the silhouette that gets 'cast' down on to the surface the object is on)
- and 'Contact Shadows' (Also called "Ambient Occlusion" in CG.. which you're probably familiar with).

Contcat Shadows happens when light literally can't get to an area of the scene as well as the other lit areas (too many bounces and the light looses intensity). This makes the point in the cast shadow where the object and the surface meet into the darkest area of shadow. Similarly, small details on the object (even if in the Form Shadow) get darker.

Then you add the highlights. As my Concept Design instructor said last week, people tend to make highlights way too large. Most of the sense of highlights are to contrast the dark portion of the image, so you can get away with very small "white hit" highlight spots, and then halos around them that are just a little bit lighter than local tone.


Texturing (even for b&w detail) comes after you have the basic Form, and Lighting/Shadows in place.



I manages to pull off a convincing "Chrome Ball" that reflected the cup and a d6 die I had on the table next to my model object just by focusing on 1) Form, 2) Light&Shadows (reflections included), and 3) Slight Texturing.
Hope that helps!

Brilliant!! I've been on the right track. With photoshop you can go back and forward a bit with shadows and highlights whereas in pencils that would fuck you right up I guess but, generally, I seem to be doing the right thing, which is good. I start with 50% grey canvas, lay on the shadows first and then pop highlights on. Where the difference lies is that I can overshadow and then airbrush white to bring it back to grey if I need to. Allows me to fuck about back and forward to get it as close to right as I'm capable. I'm guessing that as I get a bit better at it I'll spend less time doing this cos I'll be able to get it close to perfect first time. As it was Elvira took about 3hours, start to finish, so I'm already seeing an improvement.
Title: Re: P3nT's Shoops
Post by: Telarus on January 26, 2011, 08:28:32 pm
Nice. I'm going to be working my digital techniques after this (near the last half of the term), so I'll have more hints to throw out.

Local Tone doesn't have to be 50%, and should probably be higher for skintone.

Here's a good practice technique that I got a demo of.

Find a ball, setup a one point lighting setup, so you get a single highlight spot.

In your sketch program, use a circular marquee to define the ball, fill it with local tone (try to get as close to the dark/light intensity as your model object). Invert the selection, and with a slightly darker grey, quickly fill out a cast shadow that matches your lighting setup. Invert selection again. Sketch in the form shadow (notice that the area close to the edge of the form catches reflected light, so your darkest part in a crescent in the interior of the form shadow, blah, blah artsy spaggotry).

Add highlight. Blend grays. Using a simple, geometrical, but physical, object really trains the eye on tone (I recommend it over photo reference when learning this at first).

Do a few with different light angles, these should be relatively fast to do because you can use the circular marquee to restrict your brush to just object or just cast shadow. (My instructor broke my head open when he picked up a roll of take and said to the class "You have a circular marquee right here".)

Local Tone doesn't have to be 50%, and should probably be higher for skintone.

With elvira most of the skintone was nearly white, compared to the nearly black clothes and hair so I started off laying down a black matte fill for the dark bits and pure white matte fill for the skintones. using these as seperate, transparency-locked layers meant I had less airbrushing to do to fill in the shading and I can work with hard edges without having to mask and remask. A trick I learned from photomanips where I might have upward of 150 layers at any given time. Once the lions share of the work is done set up another layer over the top of everything and smooth in the edges where your layers meet.

I've only just started using layer mattes on Frankie and then Elvira but I'm totally reminded of why I learned to love them before. Going forward I'll probably be using them a whole bunch more.

With regards drawing spheres and stuff - I can totally get where you're coming from but it bores me to tears real quick which is the whole reason I never studied art in the first place. Couldn't stand being made to draw apples and shit. Yeah it'll probably slow down my development but I can live with that.

With the character portraits I take a photo then trace an outline, then airbrush it in with the source pic in a different window for reference. It's kinda cheaty but it's good practice since I'm just a noob at this. The rest of my shit is a mixture of from my head and photomanipulation.

Texture is built up over a base, painted using a brush I made from this  (http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i312/P3nT4gR4m/roughskin.png)

If you set that up with a bit of spacing on the shape, size, angle and roundness jitter and a touch of scattering it's great for laying down basic skin texture.

The right eye is bang-on, proportions wise. I can vouch for that because I traced it and then went back and checked when I thought exactly the same as you did. The problem is I haven't got the lighting right and that can actually make details look the wrong size.

No one knows where they came from.

There are theories, of course. Laboratory experiments gone wrong. Hidden species of dinosaur that somehow survived. A combination of nuclear radiation and genetic damage from too much chemicals in the ocean. The natural evolution of a predator that can take down man.

And it is taking us down one person, one town, one continent at a time. England has gone dark. Australia is entirely silent. Japan sent several rather disturbing messages that cut off in mid-transmission. North America's missing persons file has quintupled in size. Even China has been hit hard, though our proof is the sudden fixation they have on problems within their own borders.

The United States government thought it was some kind of elaborate hoax. Then they saw the footage from the school in England and suddenly things got worse. As if being exposed to the public in one country upped the ante and dropped the secrecy in every other country.

Now I'm being sent across the ocean with money and weapons to find someone in England who can help us. If anyone is left to find.

Move this to the Nessie thread.   :D

When I was a little kid, admiring fantasy artwork I always wanted an airbrush. Even before I knew what the fuck an airbrush was all the cool cats were using them and the results stood head and shoulders above everything else.

Now I have something better. CS5 is airbrush2 you're not just spraying colour, your spraying shapes with controllable variation within the spray. It's the artistic equivalent of a soapy tit wank from Kelly Brook :fap:
Title: Re: P3nT's Shoops
Post by: Tiddleywomp Cockletit on August 06, 2011, 04:20:18 am
I worked for a guy who did airbrush once, we did display windows. Seasonal stuff, like after St. Paddy's he'd get calls from businesses and we'd go dowse the old leprechaun pics with laquer thinner and scrape them off, then put up Valentines shit. It was one of those jobs you have under the table while you're drawing unemployment, where you can wear shorts and sometimes drink. :D He kept kids' coloring books with his equipment for pictures of characters like Garfield to look at if somebody wanted one. He used to get his CO2 tanks filled at the Coca Cola plant, said it was cheaper that way.

When he wasn't showing people his old letters from when he used to correspond with Robert Crumb, he was bragging about how he never paid taxes. To everybody. Dude disappeared at some point after I moved, I don't know if they got him or what. :x

Fun job, though.

I start by tracing an outline, cos I suck at actually drawing :cry:
(http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i312/P3nT4gR4m/sookieWIP1.jpg)

Next I fill in the outline so I have the subject on a seperate layer (makes the edges easier)
(http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i312/P3nT4gR4m/sookieWIP2.jpg)

I usually start with the eyes. Dunno why but that's what happens.

Then I scribble in the face roughly to begin with

Then I get bored and go do something else til I feel like going back to it...

A great start is part of what keeps people from scrapping projects, IMHO.

That is really cool.  I'm not very good at producing visual art myself.  Please don't feel down about using tracing as a base, you work a magic I ain't seen and definitely couldn't emulate.  I can't even trace well on paper.

Post by: Telarus on August 28, 2011, 06:38:54 pm
I've noticed (esp with digital) that if I start with a grey (instead of the white) to fill the silhouette, my shading comes together faster. My instructor called this the 'local tone', and I can see you starting to sketch it in by hand. Just use the fill tool. I find I can then work with lower brush opacity, and actually use the white and black swatches and hot-switch between them to build both shadow and highlights. Also, I find it prevents me from detailing too soon, as I get general areas of light/shadow blocked in before placing the eyes.

Always nice to see your method, P3nt.
Title: Re: P3nT's Shoops
Post by: P3nT4gR4m on September 01, 2011, 07:17:16 pm
I do most of my shading with white and black, then I pick a midtone and spray the whole thing to smooth the contrasty bits. Wash, rinse, repeat. Also I fill the mask eventually, just with a really thick brush set to 100% flow but only after I've done the eyes. The edges of the eyes define the shading on the rest of the face, which rarely (if ever) bears more than a passing resemblance to the original. If it sounds fucked up it prolly is but it gets me results so I just kind of go with it.

So anyway. I aint been near this for days now so I spent a quick hour tonight, tidying up the face and starting the hair (which is a fucking nightmare. 5 layers so far and it still looks like shit. Shading is confusing as fuck on the dangly/curly bit, my eyes just bounce about all over the place.

I dig your workflow, and it's really interesting to see how styles differ.

'Getting' lighting is hard, I know. I'm still learning stuff, and I know 3-4 different CG lighting engines, so I have some conception of the math involved, bounce behavior, etc. You have a very good eye for it. The hair (and your foliage in the earlier ones) are great brushwork.

Your shit is really good.  Also, the time frame isn't important...Manubu had agreed to a set date, and I wound up fucked at the Tucson Comicon because he didn't deliver (alongside two other artists).

In your case, just get to it when you get to it.  I never gave you a timeframe, and at least you're being honest about the lack of progress...Something distinctly lacking in comic artists, in my experience.

if you are going for super realistic it might help if you didnt make everything quite so smooth looking... like make things have a bit more texture and whatnot. looks like you get sligtly excited with the blend and smudge tools
otherwise THIS SHIT IS BALLINNNNNNN, YO! and theres no shame in tracing it helps learn, or just make stuff go fasterrr
Title: Re: P3nT's Shoops
Post by: P3nT4gR4m on September 04, 2011, 01:22:55 pm
It's more a case of I don't have the patience to get super realistic, what you see is as far as I can be arsed taking it. There's no blend or smudge in there I build the whole thing up with airbrushes so the smudgy stuff is where I didn't paint in any detail. I actually looked at the teeshirt close up on this one and actually thought about trying to sketch it in but it'd have taken me months so I just scribbled some shade in and walked away  :oops:

If you click the pic for the big version have a look at the bottom of the neckline of the teeshirt, you'll see where I started to draw in the fabric as a series of small white stripey bits. Some of the photorealistic stuff on Deviant Art took 50-100 hours. I couldn't bring myself to pour that much time into one fucking picture so I spend ages on the faces cos it's interesting but fabric and any other stuff that hasn't got eyes in bores me real quick :D
Title: Re: P3nT's Shoops
Post by: Tiddleywomp Cockletit on September 04, 2011, 03:52:25 pm
Yeah, I don't know if it's because things like fabric and buildings and furniture are man-made, or because there's a lot of geometric stuff to them, but they're boring as fuck to draw.

And I don't think anything looks overblended, the contrast is always there when you need it.

Yeah but it kinda slows down the more refined you make it. I kinda hit a wall where I could do even more detail but I'm losing the will to live. That's where the real photorealists would plough another 100 hours in and do the kinda shit that I'm pretty sure I could do if I only had the stomach for it. ATM I'm looking at artists that get really realistic results with a lot less brushstrokes. Like this (http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2011/242/f/9/f94113e6b73f3b2f4b562cbcd328e1f4-d48dopg.jpg) It's a matter of really tightening up the lighting and then dialling back the brush strokes. Bigger, bolder, more direct...

Yeah, art's labor intensive. And if you sell it, people have the idea that the cost of materials plus a little tip extra is a fair price. Never mind the WEEKS you put into it.

If you ever do start selling (and you could, it's more than good enough) one hint: When doing portraits, charge by the head. Otherwise you'll end up doing an entire family for the price of one pic.

Okay so Steampunk Battletoad is driving me mental! Prolly end up leaving it to the last minute like I usually do with comp entries. Meantime I haz cleaned up my potrait process, mainly by giving up my eye addiction, cold turkey. Usually my detail kinda spreads out from the eyes, via the nose and mouth but this time I'm forcing myself to concentrate on different passes, each with a level of detail what matches overall. I don't know why I'm doing this, only that it feels more disciplined and, so far, it seems to be producing a more even, more consistent workflow. Maybe a bit faster too.

Start with a b&w processed source pic of Samuel T. Shifter
(http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i312/P3nT4gR4m/merlotte_wip0.jpg)

Trace the shapey stuff and the eyes, very important to get the eyes traced very precisely.
(http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i312/P3nT4gR4m/merlotte_wip1.jpg)

1st layer. Scribble in the light and dark bits and ... OMFG those eyes look terrible. Surely I can't just leave it like that :x
(http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i312/P3nT4gR4m/merlotte_wip2.jpg)

blur the 1st layer. At least the eyes don't look so bad now but c'mon, seriously. PUPILS?????
(http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i312/P3nT4gR4m/merlotte_wip3.jpg)

Next we do another shading pass, this time with an soft airbrush. Okay so at this point I may or may not have paid an inordinate amount of attention to the eyes.
(http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i312/P3nT4gR4m/merlotte_wip4.jpg)
I felt a bit guilty so I ... BLURRED IT, all Gaussian-like. I felt like I'd died a little inside but it was a good death, a noble death. I gave my life for a greater cause
(http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i312/P3nT4gR4m/merlotte_wip5.jpg)

A little bit of tidy up and we can dispense with the outline. Good! Now it doesn't feel like I'm a little baby, colouring-in with crayons
(http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i312/P3nT4gR4m/merlotte_wip6.jpg)

OFUK, yeah - background
(http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i312/P3nT4gR4m/merlotte_wip7.jpg)

... and blur
(http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i312/P3nT4gR4m/merlotte_wip8.jpg)

And a spot of tweak
(http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i312/P3nT4gR4m/merlotte_wip9.jpg)

Right, fuck the background. That'll do.

Hair
(http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i312/P3nT4gR4m/merlotte_wip10.jpg)

And shadow. Dark as fuck cos there's a fuckton of layers going to be going over it to lighten it up
(http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i312/P3nT4gR4m/merlotte_wip11.jpg)

Next I lock the tranny on the hair layer and shade the individual strands.
(http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i312/P3nT4gR4m/merlotte_wip12.jpg)

another two or three of those with decreasing brush sizes and we'll have ourselves a barnett

Yeah, that takes a bit of perseverance. Sometimes I'm like all "fuck no I can't do this anymore" and shit. The first couple of times it was really hard to push through that feeling cos I had only pulled it off once or twice. Maybe it was beginners luck?

nice work!

I always love checked or striped shirts when drawing, because by curving the straight lines in clever ways you can really bring out the shape of the clothes and wrinkles and everything in a way I find much easier than trying to do with shadows.

Also I just watched that Wacom Intuos 4 youtube vid you posted :drool: NOW I WANT ONE what do they cost?

IIRC mine was about 350-400 quid. I shopped around and got a great deal, picking up a large for just over the price of a medium

Hah! No money yet. Maybe I'll be one of those artists who only gets discovered after he's buried in a paupers grave :D

How much would you want to do something from a photo? I know it's hours and hours and probably not cheap, but I wouldn't mind getting one done later when I've got more cash...it'd make a great birthday gift for somebody.  :)

If it's a print you're after check out the prices of my prints on Deviant. I can vouch for the quality. If I do one for you it'll be a tiny bit cheaper cos I'll knock off my markup for ya Markup is only a couple of dollars on the big ones IIRC means fuck all to me.

Yeah, the cigar was an afterthought but the rule I set myself was - no references - so I just kinda scribbled it in. Hardest bit was the snarl which still isn't right but I'm pretty pleased with the way the rest of it fitted together. Anatomy is a cunt of a thing but I'm getting to the point where I'm happy with faces. Next thing is bodys which are a whole new level of fucked up  :x

I think the snarl's pretty good though. You got some freedom with that because it's a bit of a cartoon character.

Post by: Triple Zero on September 16, 2011, 09:10:20 pm
Like, I mean, the mouth's not in a place that would be anatomically possible, I think.

But the important bit about cartoonish images is that you can get away with that shit, as long as it's because you're exaggerating the feature that's important. And the snarl is important.

In fact, I'd almost say if you're not exaggerating shit in a cartoon, you're doin it wrong.

Post by: P3nT4gR4m on November 18, 2016, 06:39:45 pm
Not animating per se but this is the result of my first attempt to rig for posing rather than animation. Was going great til I went hipoly and sculpted a whole bunch of detail that became detached from the rig so I had to dump 3 million odd polygons and go back to the base mesh which looks like this

(http://orig14.deviantart.net/8e77/f/2016/323/f/4/spoder_lopoly_1_by_p3nt4gr4m-daox999.jpg)

The detail sculpting was only an hours work, been practicing that quite a bit so it's no great loss but the rigging part took ages. Like all these things it'll get better wi practice

Here's some other random shit I've been fucking around with. Learning a whole creation pipeline here from Blender, via photoshop into unreal engine 4.

Very much the fucking around stage. Quick fire projects, as they come to me, intended to be half finished if that. Lot of technical stuff to wrap my head around. Need to approach it in bite size chunks.

I'm giving myself about 6 months to get up to speed with the toolkit and then the plan is to create "Spaces" think VR equivalent of desktop wallpaper or ringtones. I reckon these will be a quick kill market when VR kicks off, however many years from now. I want to be in on the ground floor with a site full of - The bridge of the nostromo - and - the city of rivendell - and abstract trip mandala lazor pulsing brain flatteners.

Zuckerberg is right - VR is going to be social as fuck. People going to want places to hang out and do the shit they do in the IRL whilst they're learning the new shit they can do in cyberspace actual. I'ma give them a bunch of free ones and some premium shit they gotta blockchain me for. If I eventually get really good there's the bespoke route. Top dollar for unique, one-off experience.

I think VR will come and go. In the first manifestation. Not even sure if the mainstream will buy into it. There's limited use cases. I think shit like Oculus and Vive and the mobile shit is ultimately a dead end form factor. AR on the other hand, I'm pretty confident, will take the world by absolute fucking storm and VR, as an extended function of AR will finally find a place. So there's probably a gap period where VR stays niche and AR has to moore's law it's way down to something like a normal pair of sunglasses or contacts to gain widespread adoption.

In the meantime I get my Oculus Touch in less than a month and I canModel entirely in VR! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9XlnW_Megk&t=44s) :hammer:

The average homosapien is highly susceptible to effective 2-d media manipulation.  VR is a more impactful tool for impacting the psyche by a factor that could be employed to compare a toffee hammer to a gigaton-yield nuclear warhead. There's little doubt in my mind that vast swathes of the populace will become programmable zombies. Programmable, not by clever manipulation and lots of knowledge of psychology and neuroscience but by assets downloaded from the interbutts.

VR will herald the dawn of, among other things, the weaponised meme.

My dad was at some sort of Microsoft conference recently and apparently the hot topic was AR.

I suppose that 3d modelling experience is useful in either medium.

I think that a big drawback of VR is that with the headset etc on is that it's such a lonely experience. You can't interact at all really with the people who may be around you in reality. Is virtual contact enough for people? It's fun for a while but maybe not mainstream or long term adoption. AR may be a good workaround - and I can imagine a lot more practical potential uses for AR than VR.

Having said that I do plan on getting a VR headset - probably the PSVR if some interesting looking games come out.

Very much the fucking around stage. Quick fire projects, as they come to me, intended to be half finished if that. Lot of technical stuff to wrap my head around. Need to approach it in bite size chunks.

I'm giving myself about 6 months to get up to speed with the toolkit and then the plan is to create "Spaces" think VR equivalent of desktop wallpaper or ringtones. I reckon these will be a quick kill market when VR kicks off, however many years from now. I want to be in on the ground floor with a site full of - The bridge of the nostromo - and - the city of rivendell - and abstract trip mandala lazor pulsing brain flatteners.

Zuckerberg is right - VR is going to be social as fuck. People going to want places to hang out and do the shit they do in the IRL whilst they're learning the new shit they can do in cyberspace actual. I'ma give them a bunch of free ones and some premium shit they gotta blockchain me for. If I eventually get really good there's the bespoke route. Top dollar for unique, one-off experience.

I would like to join your very lucrative cult plz. Where does I haz to sign? Does it have to be my own blood or may I have a wiling proxy do it?

Have you considered how much the OCCULT cats might pay for a fucking meme-lab or something? Virtual reading room - libraries stuffed with books old new as you pay for them!

The average homosapien is highly susceptible to effective 2-d media manipulation.  VR is a more impactful tool for impacting the psyche by a factor that could be employed to compare a toffee hammer to a gigaton-yield nuclear warhead. There's little doubt in my mind that vast swathes of the populace will become programmable zombies. Programmable, not by clever manipulation and lots of knowledge of psychology and neuroscience but by assets downloaded from the interbutts.

VR will herald the dawn of, among other things, the weaponised meme.

Short of a global extinction event, I'm pretty sure it's a case of when, not if we transition to an augmented existence. Track record. Human race has widely adopted any half way decent technological revolution that's come along in the past. We've gone from painting stick figures on the inside of a cave to simulating fabrics and fluids and the interaction of light on metal, all in realtime and projecting it onto your eyeballs at 90 frames a second!

Now is always the starting point. Right now the shit is clunky as hell and on the pricey side of any kind of mass market. Couple of hundred thou, here and there. But, for someone in my position, with my long term interest in the medium, it's actually impressively useful. Just enough fidelity to be able to get to work in there. More than I was expecting, tbh.

AR like you say, pretty much unlimited applications. I can easily think of a couple of uses offhand for pretty much any business sector and gaming applications progress perfectly with the tech.

I guess porn just needs to get involved in a big way now to move shit along faster.

So now I can pose this little bastard all over the place. I'm totally stoked. First time I've ever managed to do this and it's awesome fun!

Title: Re: P3nT's Shoops
Post by: P3nT4gR4m on November 20, 2016, 01:46:14 pm
I'm learning the basics. I can't build any kind of VR environment unless I can use the tools. I'm grabbing a process at a time and modelling things until it's comfortable and fluid before moving on to the next process in the pipeline. There's a lot of overlap. To learn bones and rigging I need a mesh to pose about so I get to practice sculpting and anatomy while I'm knocking these out. The key for me is not getting bogged down in trying to complete things. Just quick scribbles to test the techniques then dump and move onto the next thing. Make a lot of mistakes and learn the solutions as fast as possible. Taking on a complete project right now would probably overwhelm me and lead directly to frustration and boredom.

This is really cool.  So, what's up with this sculpting tool?  Do you have to know how to sculpt IRL to use it?  I was really impressed when you said you could knock out a face in an hour - how cuz?  Could I do something like that in Blender, and, what's wrong with how I'm holding my tools?  Do I need a special mouse or something?  (I've only worked with meshes - should I try bones?)
Title: Re: P3nT's Shoops
Post by: P3nT4gR4m on December 06, 2016, 11:12:23 pm
I never sculpted IRL. Need to know anatomy to sculpt organics. I'm still learning. The more anatomy I learn, the easier it is to model, more methodical, a-b-c. Sculpting in dynatopo mode adds polys to the mesh where needed. Gives epic results down to tiny detail but the mesh you end up with is a fkin mess. Distorts and creases all funny when you use bones. First learn retopology. A bit like anatomy but using polygon flow to describe forms. I can speed-sculpt a face now, either with references or made up in my head, in about an hour. I practice doing that. The retopolgy takes me several hours. Then I need to model hipoly detail back in, on top of retopo'd mesh for normal/bump maps.

By all accounts is kinda bog standard workflow for game assets and/or posable meshes. The other way is build lowpoly, nicely topologised mesh from the git go but I prefer starting with a dynamic mesh. Plenty blender/z-brush sculpting vids on youtube. Principles are the same across both but there's more z-brush ones.
Title: Re: P3nT's Shoops
Post by: LuciferX on December 06, 2016, 11:50:44 pm
Cool.  Gonna check retopology.  I see the tools, have to figure how to hold them.  Using a trackpad is kinda messing with my flow *blames his tools* Ty for inspiring me to up my game.

TBH, animation is not something that even remotely interests me now. I've rigged a few models for posing but with medium even that aint necessary, there's a kinda rapid quick workflow where you can do a cut through like an arm or a leg, twist the bits individually then join them back together. Used that workflow for this one...

Tits do my head in, tbh. IRL I love them but in art stuff I try to avoid like the plague. Nekkid is no bother, they kinda hang like bags of water south of the pectorals but in a push up bra it's a fucken nightmare to get right. Unfortunately for a pin-up style fairy there was no avoiding them.

Spent longer on the face, tho. That expression was a bastard to nail but it's pretty close to what I was shooting for. All that anatomy study is starting to pay off cos I knew which muscles to "pull on" to get the smirk.

Post by: P3nT4gR4m on December 31, 2016, 01:15:23 pm
I've always had trouble in the past trying to artistic expression on a 2-d surface. I have to try and get the thing from my head from one very specific angle. That's just not how things exist in my head. It's hard as fuck. Makes my eyes go together and my tongue poke out the corner of my mouth. Results are mediocre on a good day.

I don't have this in VR. The immediacy of what I'm creating means I can hold the guitar or the chainsaw and align it up with my minds eye. The simulation and my imagination fuse to create some new kind of thing. More than the sum of it's parts. I can't tell where one ends and the other begins. I'm wearing a motherfucken mental prosthetic that creates a feedback loop. Dreams and vision collide. Reinforce each other.

I place a ball of gloop in space that's rendered to my eyes and from my imagination at the same time. I'm tracing over a mental image, manipulating it in simulation space. Art, any art, is one part learned and practised technical skill and the other vision and imagination. Thing is I always had the imagination part but one of the most important core skills -translating perspective. Nailing down a perfect 2-d representation of the creature in my head, it always seemed slippery and elusive to me.

Last night I jumped into the Rift with a guitar in mind. Knocked it up actual-size. I can't see my hands in the HMD but I can grab the neck of the guitar where I would and my kinaesthetic memory gives me how my hand should look were it there, at the angle I can feel it at.

So much easier to draw a stick man in 3-d space. Don't have to guess the perspective. If his leg is bent toward the viewer the line should be shorter? Fuck right off with all that bollix! If his leg is the length of a motherfucken leg then it's done. Hold my hands apart. About yay-big.

This was easier than it had any business being. Medium has no facility for importing/viewing reference images so the workaround is to lift the HMD off my face and glance at the screen. That's annoying so I haven't done much. Just found out I can copy a reference like a boss. My brain doesn't do 3-d to 2d cos of my perspective-blindness or whatever the fuck you call it but going the other way - looking at a photo then sculpting it in 3d, that's a piece of piss. Copied mostly from a spider anatomy diagram with a few photo refs flung in.

Thanks! Lot of seemingly unrelated stuff I've picked up over the years is coming together. Plus the sculpting software means I can churn out  shit like this (https://youtu.be/gzrzwcQkW6g) in half a motherucken hour! Nothing else is as fast as this. Is like steroids for practice.

My body anatomy is still sketchy as hell but it's headed in the right direction. Heads and faces, tho, I'm getting confident as fuck with now. Spent the best part of six months learning the piss out of that. Still make the odd mistake but is all little stuff now and every time I spot one it gets more dialled in.  By summer bodies will hopefully be the same deal.

This was fun as hell to watch!  When I saw you first spraying the 'grey matter' I immediately thought of pre-cooked chicken nuggets (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T67DvoH2H3E). I can't wait for this technology to mature but I love the early adopters.  I know you've worked in ...zbrush, iirc? This looks very similar so I imagine it was an easy transition.
Title: Re: P3nT's Shoops
Post by: P3nT4gR4m on January 15, 2017, 12:58:39 pm
I haven't used zbrush but blender sculpt mode is the same idea.  Transition was a bit weird cos all the tools look the same but they're used totally different in vr.  Imagine if you went into a garage and found out that wheel nuts were now used to loosen and tighten the monkey wrenches which hold  the wheels on. Bit of a mindfuck but very intuitive.

Dammit, too late. I want a tarot spread I can "walk through."

I'm thinking Renaissance. One of the aspects of that artistic period that always appealed to me was the use of/hiding of occult symbolism in so many of the works. Sacred geometry, depictions of archetypes, the whole nine yards. VR can do this. I already sign my public releases with a small pentagram, usually hidden away somewhere that maybe no one will ever know is there. I actually drew it, like in the rituals, at arms length, real size.

By this time next year I'll progress from creating objects to creating places to be and that's the real transformative artform that VR enables. Right now I could make my sculpts in anything from flatscreen to IRL and the experience would be pretty similar between formats but the next step is to put the viewer in a whole space, every molecule of which is chosen to convey the experience I design.

P3nt, you're great. If I had known what you were working on my life over the past three years would have been so much easier.

Your work actually reminds me of a piece I had a cool guy make for a personal project of mine over the past couple days. Maybe you'll like it? Not really meaning to threadjack here, FTR, more to try and give you something to look at in return for what you've given all of us to look at.

I'd bet the first stone carver that upgraded from a bronze chisel to iron felt something similar.

This is just my opinion, but I figure that most often the artist gets in their own way by trying to judge themselves by their works. The secret is in continuing to do things until it's too easy, then push yourself and either make more than ever or try something totally new. You're clearly getting joy out of this new thing and making "more" with better tools.

I sing to myself very often, though less than I used to. I'm not a pro, I can't read music very well other than a choir staff. I usually sing alone and that's because I fear to be judged. When I go to sing karaoke or hit an open mic with my bro, who equally unschooled taught himself guitar and a bunch of other instruments (he's waiting on reeds for his new bagpipes  :cry:) he and I show folks a new thing no radio or album can do. It's just a moment, but it's always "good stuff" even when we fuck up. It's the "just doing it" over and over that made those moments happen.
It's that were "not artists" in a sense. The judgement came from folks seeing the product!

Aye! I reread that post and it kinda comes across as downbeat but that's really not what I was meaning. Been coming to terms with what I've started calling "the myth of talent". I'm fast coming to the conclusion that there's no such thing as talent, in and of itself. What "untalented" people refer to as "talent" is actually just someone who has practiced something enough times to get good at it.

I'm pretty active on the oculus forum and there's a good mix there of pro guys, the dude who made the Hulk for the movie Avengers Assemble, the chap who did some of the transformers in Revenge of the fallen, and then there's total novices who just enjoy having a scribble and then there's me, somewhere in the middle and I'm looking at the ninja guys and thinking "fuck me, if only..." and then I'm looking at the noobs and thinking "All I have on them is six or seven months studying anatomy" and that's the  trick, that's where the "talent" comes from - work. Practice. Study.

And people say "You're talented" or "I wish I had your talent" and that's a crock of shit. I don't have talent, I just put in the graft and those, ninja fuckers who get paid to work on movies, the godlike fuckers? They just been at it longer than me but, having been at this for half a year or more now, I was kinda waiting for the talent fairy to pay me a visit or something. Flash of light, heavenly chorus kinda deal and it never happened and I don't feel talented. All I feel is I know my way round a skull and bones and I know how to plug the muscles in cos I been staring at them for half a year.

The magic of VR and Medium is I'm not wrestling with interface anymore so I kinda got a free pass learning all that technical bullshit and that fast forwarded me at least six months to a year in terms of my capability. That's the cheaty part but I don't mind. I got there a year quicker than I would have done but I would have got here eventually. I miss the notion of talent, tho. Like I'm doing stuff now that a year ago I would have looked at in awe like a magician done it and now I can do it but I don't feel like a magician. It's a minor irritation, tho. I love being able to get stuff out my head and give birth to these creations. That more than makes up for the complete lack of voodoo.
Title: Re: P3nT's Shoops

I prefer "kung-fu" as a concept. It means something like "hard work". The power of sheer bloody minded repetition and incremental improvement.

It's not a complex concept and has little to do with martial art per se. When i worked in the laundry I got VERY good at "laundry physics" over time. The first year I went to bed every night with my arms in agony, but with time and tiger balm as needed I both got stronger and learned the more effective methods of working with the often shitty equipment. Because the work was boring I'd make a game of it for myself. Where do I stand for best leverage? What can I do other than deadlift this whole goddamn thing again because fucking Gary left me with the same problem AGAIN? How fast can I untie this knot, drop load, and refasten? What are the odds that load needs to go up to the hospital because someone dropped the ball again? After a while it was like a dance through a shit storm that left me mostly clean. The last year and a half when I switched shifts got more "esoteric" and I had to deal with a different problem set, but by then whenever I had to do the heavy shit... it wasn't even like effort. It helped that I have a very strong body and high endurance, but the process of learning actually settled me into doing less of that for more effect.

I'm also rather accurate with a wet towel now. I can flip light switches. My throwing accuracy is pretty good too.

I'm hoping to get that accomplished feeling back through formal martial art training. I'm never giving my heart to a workplace again, but I have no regrets about what I learned to Do.
Title: Re: P3nT's Shoops
Post by: P3nT4gR4m on February 18, 2017, 09:10:34 am
Totally get what you mean with the kung-fu thing. I have this rough concept of "Ninja" that I aspire to. Immersed in the task, whether it be paddling a kayak or making a cup of coffee, I try to approach it with the same focus on perfecting the action. On doing it the way a ninja would do it. Immersed in a flow state, striving for perfect execution. Quote from Last Samurai always at the forefront of my mind - "From the moment they wake, they devote themselves to the perfection of whatever they pursue."

BTW, I might have said this before but it bears repeating - VR is like an amplifier for flow state. In medium there's a default background. When you first load it up, generic HDR blue sky and clouds but you can turn this off and pick a plain background colour. Instant sense of sensory deprivation. You can feel all the visual distraction melt away. Actually feel it, like a jolt. Like when a loud background noise stops and you realise some part of your brain has been paying attention to it but you don't notice til it's gone.

I start getting uncomfortable in the rift after an hour or so but that hour is guaranteed perfect focus and perfect flow-state every time. Medium is the only thing I've used in VR that's anything like this but I'm predicting the technique could be used in any productivity software.

I tried to explain it to my shitbag manager once when I he watching me work at speed and be in so fluid from task to task, but he just laughed in the way that someone who doesn't understand but wishes to still feel like an authority will when confronted with shit they fundamentally don't get. And gave me the old "keep up the good work".

The QC that I mostly reported to was ex-army of the sort that they teach all of the Macgyver type of shit to and one of the only people from there that I keep in touch with had far more character and real world experience. He understood. We were very different guys, but similar kinds of crazy.

The eyes on that little dude with the tentacles are dopeshit!

Is software called Medium, running on Oculus. Software was developed by Oculus in house and shipped free with the hand controllers in october.

It's available on steam for about 30-quid(ish) and runs on the vive by all accounts.

You've successfully infected me with a 3D sculpting mindworm. Last night I dreamed I was sculpting in VR, despite having never done so IRL.

Aye, it's a dear game to get into. Especially if you don't have a current game-spec pc. For the money I laid down, I consider it worth every f'kin penny. YMMV

And the epic continues. Today I spent 45 mins posing the beast. In Medium this involves hacking your model up and rearranging the bits in space.

Next I move on to detailing. If I can manage to avoid tapping out cos I'm sick of the sight of it, I'm guessing another 3-4 hours. Plus I have another 1 (perhaps 2) characters planned to complete the diorama. Add another hour or two for that shit. Staying motivated is always the deciding factor.

I had a bit of a (waking?) dream at some point about sculpting bas relief images like the stones of Gobekli Tepe but I think it was more like the sculpting in your vids, kind of. Weird thing is that I seem to remember watching someone at work with their bare hands, but don't remember at all WHEN exactly this first appeared in my mind. Definitely sometime in the last couple days. The figure being made didn't seem... terrestrial. It was like living rock or something.

So the GL output from Medium is a PITA to work with and the results are GL as fuck. The alternative is import into blender and hook up to cycles render pipeline which takes three times as long as the fucking sculpt and is just monotonous clicking and sliding little settings about. So I hardly ever do it. Decided to make the effort for Goblin Fight Promoter (Ha, I like that!). Feel like it was worth it.

Lol, wild! GL is not proper render. Just fake output from video card. This second last pic was GL you should be able to see how the lighting was isn't quite right, highlights where there shouldnt be and stuff. Last pic took 5 minutes for blender to calculate. Proper shadows and highlights and even funky sub surface scattering where the light picks up a red tinge passing through the ears and whatnot.

Post by: The Wizard Joseph on March 12, 2017, 12:57:14 am
Hm... i see a bit of the lighting inconsistencies in the second pic. He appears toplit with a fairly normal white light and the cigar stub is giving a much stronger sort of counter-light. With the black background it looks menacing as hell despite that. Maybe even because of it.

The first one with the cool lit background looks more emotive like. Almost soulful by comparison. Like he was almost feeling sorry about what he's looking at.

For shiggles try covering up the left and right sides of the second pic alternatively. First I made it symmetrical like this
(https://us.v-cdn.net/6024342/uploads/editor/40/oxkug3jlljds.jpg)

Then a dude on facebook dared me to "break symmetry" which is a thing in digital sculpting where the symmetry mode mirrors what you do on one side of the plane so it's half the work to make a face but totally symmetrical faces look just fucking wrong. Uncanney valley kinda shit so once the bulk of the work is done you turn off symmetry mode and work on making each side just a bit different. You can moles and scars and just generally fiddle about with shit so it looks more natural.

So I decided to practice expressions but I had two in mind - "Goblin has no requirement for the bullshit you offer" and "Goblin regrets choices he made in life that brought shame on himself and the horde". Couldn't make up my mind which to do so I decided to try half of each and see what happened.

(http://orig14.deviantart.net/bc58/f/2017/071/d/a/gob2comparison_by_p3nt4gr4m-db20slq.jpg)

First pic was just slightly rotated in favour of the sad side. Second one is pretty much straight-on. So it turned out that rotating the head gives me emotional volume control for the final shot. Like a crossfade from mean to sad. I kinda like the juxtaposition so I framed it straight on.

Still a long way to go but getting comfy with the anatomy down to about the tits lets me bang out shit that I'm happy enough with to spur me on. You should have seen the full body figure study I attempted before this, tho. Fucking zero idea what's going on down there. Got fed up after an hour and a half trying to get the bastard ankles right and scrapped it then blasted out the woodland fawn prick in 40 mins as a pick me up for my shattered ego.

Much easier to wear the defeats than it was six months ago when everything I tried was fail. Now I can at least score a win every now and again. This time next year the plan is full body sculpts from memory. That's when this shit'll really get interesting 8)

They had a solid plan and it would probably have gone without a hitch if not for the fact that General Zog stood a quarter of a millimeter tall by earthling measurements. The Martian Physicists manning the telescopes had made a mistake with the decimal point and the whole fleet was destroyed when it was run over by a kid on a skateboard 2 minutes after landing.

Title: Re: P3nT's Shoops
Post by: P3nT4gR4m on March 29, 2017, 11:10:06 am
The mouth and chin is supposed to be like wrinkled skin, you know how your fingers go when they've been in water too long? The effect was there in the first version but not so pronounced, plus the light wasn't hitting that part of the face very well so most of the chin area was in shadow.

I took the model back into Medium and built up a lot of detail, especially the chin and the sides of the head but pretty much all over. Then I redid the paintjob to highlight the forms better. Then I booted it back into blender and redid the lights so I had better coverage


Here's another render from front-on

Wino-taur is speaking for my soul. I've been icy-stone sober except for whatever this damn stuff I'm on is doing (not nothing but hard to describe and possibly not helpful so far) for about a month now. I never did drink much, but no weed, no drink, and this shit.... Pratchett had a word for it I think knurd. The opposite of drunk attained from too much Klatchan coffee. IIRC it's a sobriety so SHARP that it's actually dangerous.

The first guy looks like, forgive me, a post-apocalyptic Jarjar Binks and it's super cool. I think the middle guy is from Judge Dredd no?

I need a prequel trilogy fan-edit where Jar Jar is replaced with your dude, but I'm stuck on whom I'd want to do his voice acting.

Ftfy.

If you replace jar jars lines with the exact running order of his lines in casino it becomes a work of art.

In fairness I used a posable mannequin to rough out the positions. Proportions are easy as fuck in VR, tho, cos I have a body IRL. So say I'm trying to do an arm and get the shoulder - elbow - wrist right, I can actually hold my left arm the right way and trace over it with my other hand.

Also the zeke head in this one was a repurposed goblin head I did months ago which already had the expression I was shooting for. Just needed to lop off the ears and fuck around with the skin a bit.

So the latest news is they dropped a point release for Medium and now we can haz a whole bunch of new toys. Reference images is a game changer as is the addition of a roughness slider for the default material - doesn't sound like much but without it, everything looked like plastic.

Do you happen to have these posted anywhere I could check them out in VR w/ google cardboard?

I'm currently teaching high school computer science, and recently had my students make 3d designs in tinkercad, and then post the object file to sketchfab, so we could explore their work in VR. It was a totally blast  : :fnord:

And, yeah - VR is clunky and 1st gen but already it's shaping up to be more than I imagined it could be. And I can imagine quite a bit ;)

Also, to whom it may concern, for like $15 you can get a google cardboard, or 3rd party, viewer that turns your phone into make shift virtual reality goggles, and it is genuinely amazing.

If you have the spondoolicks handy, shelling out for a full blown oculus or vive setup is worth every penny. The jump in quality from carboard is pretty much exponential. Head/hand tracking and low persistence have to be experienced to be fully appreciated.

Here's links to some more. If you sign up to sketchfab and sub me I'm planning on uploading a ton of these now that I've figured out a pipeline that gives me reasonable quality with not a lot of fucking around.

So the big news in VR sculpting is the Medium team pushed a new update which allows the export of tangent space normals. Up til now it only spat out object space and realtime engines like UE4 and Sketchfab require tangent space. Use the wrong kind and fine detail comes out looking shonky as fuck. Long story short, I can now export from Medium, straight into UE4 and use my Medium sculpts as assets in Unreal Engine whereas, before the update, I had to do a ton of arsing around in the middle and still couldn't get it completely right.

My portfolio shall be an interactive VR art gallery in the style of a fairground house of horrors.  8)

Yeah, thanks man. Pretty stoked myself. I've wanted to be able to do this shit for decades but flatscreen tech always held me back. I knew if I stuck in I'd get there but wrestling with 2-d interfaces sucked any fun out of it for me. VR and Medium feels like art. Z-brush and the like feels like software engineering which I get more than enough of at work.

I've always had a love/hate relationship with portraits. Maybe sounds dumb but I kinda form a deep emotional connection with the subject. It's a bit like falling in love but not quite. Hard to put into words exactly but it feels great. Problem is, I always get to a stage where it's not quite right but there's fuck all I can do to fix it and I niggle away at tiny details but it makes no difference and eventually I just ragequit out of pure frustration and that's when I'm finished and it's time to upload to deviant art  8)

I did karloff years back in photoshop so this is a romance rekindled. Those deep soulful eyes, the primitive prosthetic. Such a striking, iconic image. The perfect illustration of Shelley's tragic creature. I'll spend another couple of hours on this and I know already it won't be right but, hopefully I'll be closer to the truth than I was before I started and, if not, at least I get to spend a bit more time falling in love with a dead actor.

Finished! Almost. Couple of bits of the sculpt to tidy up and it's off to sketchfab. Purely subjective and I feel like I'm too close to the thing to be 100% sure but I feel like I just took a major step up in quality. I trust you motherfuckers hate me enough to not blow smoke up my ass (especially if I ask you not to) but is this like f'kin miles better than anything I've done previously?

Sometimes progression for me is in small, incremental steps. I keep practising and, every time I create something new, I get a little bit more fluid, a little bit better. Other times there are what feel like huge leaps, like with Karloff where a number of different things I've been working on seem to fall into place in a - better than the sum of it's parts - kinda deal. At least that's how it feels.

These leaps feel fucking awesome. With the incremental progress I hardly notice it happening, the difference in quality from one project to the next is barely noticeable. Only when I look back at earlier shit do I see the difference but with the "Level Up" crap, that's almost like a choir of angels or some shit. An orgasm maybe, it's a total buzz anyway but it's both a blessing and a curse.

Sometimes it's a bit of a fluke. My next dozen things will be back to where I was and that's frustrating as fuck but I just have to hold on to the memory of managing it the one time, to spur me on through the increments I have to plod through in order to get back there. TBH, it doesn't feel like failure exactly but it's a kick in the nuts from a very similar boot.

"Can I turn on the Karloff shit at will now or was that just a tease?" I was wondering to myself. Bit nailbitey but WTF, only one way to find out. Happy to report, I think it's a proper level up and not just a preview! So this guy is my "Big project for the weekend" New training regimen, to accommodate and build on my newly acquired hi frequency detail skillz. Even for the pros, detailing is a fucking time consuming thing. Time to cover a whole model raises exponentially with resolution so at weekends I'm going to dedicate 10-12 hours to ninja-ing the fuck out a sculpt and then through the week I'll stick to speedsculpts and anatomy studies.

Based on a concept sculpt I scribbled down a few weeks back. Should have this guy finished by tomorrow night

I like how in that last one he's all "now hold on just a sec..."

Was trying to catch the dynamic of him getting shot by a machine gun, so I looked in the mirror and imagined myself being shot in the shoulder, the cheek and then the head and trying to figure out where the arms could be. I went for a kind of left arm out doing the - graspy zombie - thing. And the right arm sorta just hanging down.

So then I acted out taking one in the shoulder and that obviously twisted my shoulder back but I could feel the momentum pulling on my left arm so that came across and then my head twisted back with shot-2 but the force on the left arm was still (I felt) coming from shoulder rotation.

And then my hand was between me and the shooter...

Dunno, does that momentum thing come across in the final sculpt? Also the ridiculousness of his eyes focused on the bullet that would have been out the back of his head before this brain would even register there was something to look at. Thought that might be worth a laugh?

There's no animation in the actual Medium software and with animation you have to do this horrible retopology shit which I haven't practised enough to get comfortable with yet. Same with "rigging" which is adding the virtual armature that poses your model .I'll probably get around to it at some point but I got a whole bunch of other things I want to learn first.

Over the next couple of years motion capture technology is going to become dirt cheap, like practically free with the next generation of 3d sensors being built into smartphones and VR/ar rigs. No more of those weird suits with the ping pong balls and a dozen ridiculously expensive lidar cameras. At that point retopo-ing and rigging will be worth my while when I can just act out the animations.

People going to want virtual avatars to interact with their friends in the metaverse. 8)

So I started by seeing THIS (http://rossdraws.deviantart.com/art/Orange-spectacles-686247471) on deviantart. About half way through, before I'd even started dialing in the expression, I noticed it was headed somewhere different. I heard Bobby Campbell in my head - "...leaning into the trajectory of my misfire". And that's how I ended up with this

Bringing the rest of the face up to the same level as the eyes is the challenge for me :lulz:

Thanks Nigel. I thought I'd replied to this days ago but I must have forgotten to hit "post"

Anyroad, the big news this morning is my Karloff Monster was just featured on UploadVR (https://uploadvr.com/sketchfab-favs-monsters-monarchies/).

Quote
This might be one of the most realistic models ever created with a VR tool (in this case, Oculus Medium). The raw emotion visible in this take on Boris Karloff’s monster here is incredibly compelling, reminding us a little of Wilson’s Heart.

I'm actually feeling a bit emotional that some complete stranger just wrote that shit about something I did!  :aww:

Oh yeah, and heres what I meant to post the other day. Not sure there's any compelling raw emotion in here but, hey, I'm sure even Picasso had days when he'd just seen the DoomVFR trailer and wanted to paint demon skulls, right?

Thanks Bobby. The more I practice the more I'm finding my eye getting dialled in. Borg Queen was a pretty awesome experience for me, the least amount of fiddling about with forms back and forward. I'm able to get a lot more right first try. Even a couple of weeks ago this would have taken three or four days. As it turned out this one was about 3hours. I pissed about with the paintjob more than the actual sculpt.

Some process wips.

First rough using an old anatomy study as a starting point. Mouth on the original was open so I had to redo the lower jaw and tweak the cheekbones and eye sockets to match the subject. Eyes haven't been touched at this point so that's why they look totally wrong.
(https://us.v-cdn.net/6024342/uploads/editor/6b/krav2z956lnr.jpg)

Second session, concentrating on secondary forms, fixed the eyes and trying to push some expression in there. Was about this point I noticed one of my refs had a huge bulging cranium (must have been a post fx process - none of the others had this). Considered going in this direction but decided to stick with a slightly elongated normal size skull.
(https://us.v-cdn.net/6024342/uploads/editor/ym/dgbp2qhkqdwm.jpg)

Third session, more detailing, added some pipes and metalwork and whatnot. More detailing. Normally buy now I'd still be fucking around trying to the nose the right shape or some other stupid bullshit.
(https://us.v-cdn.net/6024342/uploads/editor/tm/qu32ngunng6j.jpg)

Last session, adding the shoulders and funky glowing spinal column and she's good to go
(https://us.v-cdn.net/6024342/uploads/editor/gw/g0y6wddgwh1u.jpg)

And then about 3 hours yesterday fucking around with shaders and textures in blender. I hate this so much but the results are just about worth it.

So I think I figured out what the Borg Queen saw in Picard. He had an artificial heart. Isn't that sweet? He was already "in process" before he got upgraded to Locutus, which I think means "one who talks". She gave him a little individuality and everything, but he said "nah, I'm a Federation man fo life". No wonder she got so salty and tried grinding on Data like he was just her usual flavor in  reverse.

This is yet another amazing bit of work P3nT.

Yay, so Ed the Head got me another staff pick on Sketchfab. The reputation economy - after my basic needs are met with a bit of breathing space, my life is devoted at present to gaining likes on media sharing channels. This currency rewards me with centuries of hardwired feelgood chemicals and is psychically fullfilling, whereas hard currency and it's aquisition feels dated and sub-optimal. Like we (as a species) should have improved on this bullshit by now.

In other news - I have 3-d printed one of my sculpts which is kind of a trip. Haven't painted something like this since brief flirtation with warhammer in my teens. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Did a remix of the dude I'm calling "Stamphead" on account of I wasn't happy wi the final image. Had to go in and photograph about 20 separate lighting passes then bang them all together in photoshop. Lot of work but I'm pretty satisfied with the results. Half the battle with these things is showing them off. Often takes longer than making the fuckers in the first place.

Cheers, guys! I'm reasonably comfy with my current level of faces although the end goal is way in advance of this. Bodies on the other hand are a whole new kettle of worms. Had a bit of a breakthrough this weekend tho. Via VR Sculpting community I have the ear of some world class artists. Couple of them suggested I concentrate on gesture first when studying body anatomy. Had an epiphany weekend. With faces, other than a bit of jaw movement, the underlying bone structure is static so once you've learned it, you've learned it. Everything else is about learning muscles and their interactions to drive the expression. Bodies are all over the place though and there's whole new factors around balance and poise to replace all the expression of the face to make it believable.

The quality of the bodywork here is where my faces were 6 months ago. I only have a vague idea how a couple of the bits join up. Mission statement: 6 Months time, I'll have this shit down and be styling it. At this point I shall return to this guy and finish him off. Lot of theory and practice between here and there.

The eyes look more natural for sure and the cheek bone and temple area are better defined. Skin texture and the color of the teeth are really detailed and realistic looking.

For emotional context the older one looks more like his mind is getting blown. The new one looks almost sad like he's actually remembering something and it hurts a bunch.

Post by: P3nT4gR4m on August 22, 2017, 11:53:50 pm
Cheers, mate! Pretty much everything you said there was specific stuff I was hoping I wasn't imagining. Seriously, the expression on the right is what the guy on the left actually looked like to me 6 months ago. There's a degree of projection goes on where my imagination fills in the blanks almost like augmented reality. I've only recently noticed this effect and it's probably why a lot of artists recommend sleeping on a sculpt or walking away for a couple of days or, in my case, six months.

After spending most of my weekend fighting what was always going to be a losing battle with torso anatomy, I decided to cut loose and rattle out a quick portrait. Alan Moore, inspired by the Frank Quitely one which I had the pleasure of seeing in the flesh a couple of weeks back.

In two minds about finishing this. I kinda like the sketchiness but at the same time there's a couple of bits really bugging the piss out of me.

K so after a couple of days staring at him I got to the point where all I could see was Charlie f'kin Manson. Softened the eyes, dialled back the brow, totally redid the cheeks and jowls and refined the nose. Much happier but then I was happy before. I'll let it percolate for another couple of days then, if I can't see anything wrong, I'll finish off the hair and detailing. And get him up on sketchfab.

I liked "Manson Moore" quite a bit, but I like retooled Moore more!
Great work!

I've gone and totally fucked up the eyes now in a kinda insane tweak-frenzy. 2.5 hours down the shitter. Plus whatever it's going to take me to get back where I was.  :argh!:

It still looks great to me! But I totally understand what it's like to chase a particular vision, and to lose hours upon hours in pursuit. Happy hunting!

Aye, the key for me (that I'm only just learning to turn) is to resist that feeling that I can't get it back. As if what I had was down to luck and now I should just scrap the shit cos lightning won't strike twice. That mindset leads to confinement, I get locked in to a - not quite there but scared to try and fix it in case I fuck it up worse - trap (which actually happened here) A negotiation of quality.

Trick was figuring out that lightning can strike as many times as I want it to - I'm the fucking lightning! 8)

I'm not usually the artsy type, but I wanted to drop in and say that these are fantastic!

Also, maybe a couple pages back you had mentioned VR Sculpting, and I am now incredibly interested in that idea.

Anyways, keep it up! I'm liking the progress. Watching an artist's skill increase over time in a measurable, visible way like this is more interesting to me than the art itself, sometimes.

 :lulz: I  would but I'm not tech savvy enough. It could make a great model for a mask though! One day IRL and Internet will be indistinguishable and woven together inseparably.  ... not sure that's a good thing it's pretty 'effin cool!

There's currently a competition in progress - "design your virtual avatar"

We already post "selfies" on the facebook art groups where we use the oculus avatar and turn the camera around in Medium. Oculus avatar is one of those user defined things like in any bethesda game you ever played where you got sliders for sizes and shapes of things.

Mine looks like this only without the meat and bones thing. I'm basically a head and thorax and a couple of hands at this point. Not exactly the "residual self image" that Morpheus promised. Sensors are coming. All will be user defined soon enough.

So this weekend just gone I was stuck for a project and I decided that the Alan Moore thing has highlighted a need to figure out some decent workflows for hair.

First thing I needed was a head sculpt and I felt like the practice so I knocked up a quick - seeing shapes in clouds of clay - number that turned out to be a Gobliness. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-47Jh2yLgLA)

Enter Barbie Goblin. Who I proceeded to use as a model for various cutting edge, couture stylings. I got bored with the face after the first couple and started fucking about with expressions
