Bring and Brag / Re: P3nT's Shoops

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.

I'm calling him "Shostrich" cos there's a bit of shark and a bit of ostrich in him (along with fuck knows all what else)

Imported into unreal engine and squared off against spiderman. I've stood next to these guys in the rift and they're about 10 foot tall. This is my future. As advertised. Does not dissapoint!

Most recent thing that showed up was today. Don't recognise the source (clickbait), came via google.

http://trendintech.com/2016/12/02/new-study-shows-how-human-intelligence-may-be-a-product-of-a-basic-algorithm/

I've seen it posted on a couple of forums and FB places. Didn't want to waste time fact checking if you knew anything about it. Filing it as crap pending further info.

On a side note, Nigel, I'd be interested in your take on this N=2i-1 thing that has flashed across my radar three or four times in the last week or so. Google seems ignorant, the sources are somewhere in the middle of the credibility scale but it seems really interesting and maybe not totally nonsensical. What are proper neuroscientists saying about it? Is it even a thing?

Next week hand controllers arrive for oculus and I get a free copy of Medium - sculpting in VR. Also UE4 has controller support already. I get to build VR, in VR :fap:

Minotaur-pig-rabbit-demon. Brainfart-doodle from today. (don't ask - I have literally no idea)

What you said about philosophy rings true with me. Philosophy seems to have a grammar and language suited to examining consciousness which science totally lacks. Science likes objectivity. Consciousness is an entirely subjective phenomenon. I think the article in the OP is what happens when objective science tries to understand the wellspring of subjectivity. Sure, we might figure it out eventually but until then I expect there will be many more lulzfests like this.
