Hey guys, i've been trying to get a high res printable model of Phantom Assassin from DoTA2.
Any of you guys have a posed/ posable model of it in 3D file?
I am trying to have it printed out and custom painted and things like that. Help will be greatly appreciated.

Valve changed the model filetype for the new engine, so you can't decompile the current dota models, you can use the base models if you want, dl from here - http://www.dota2.com/workshop/requirements

If you want to decompile, there's a torrent with an old version of dota https://kat.cr/dota-2-v580-full-multilanguage-autoupdate-t7547613.html

Greetings /3/

I'm getting into computer animation but class time isn't enough for me to properly finish all of my projects, so I'm planning on buying a laptop that can handle Maya, Zbrush, etc.
What specs would you folks recommend while keeping the budget at a maximum of about $1k? Thinking of taking a trip to the nearest Best Buy this weekend since it's the only tech store nearby

Just buy the computer with the highest specs you can afford, but prioritize CPU performance higher than if you were shopping for a gaming rig. Any current computer that can run videogames will be plenty good enough for /3/ work.

But actually rendering animation without at least a small computer lab as farm is never gonna be a good experience even if you have a $5000 computer.
>Any current computer that can run videogames
this, Asus rogs in particular are a pretty safe choice.
Acer has some good laptops on Newegg. I've got an Aspire V (840m GPU) and its worked pretty well so far.

To all the ZBrush folk, what is your stance on MultiMesh tools? I'm working on adding detail to a mech and it's really tempting to use the ready made InsertMultiMeshes with cables/wires/gribbles but part of me really wants to make all my stuff from scratch.

Do you guys ever use ready made parts? How cheating is it for basic stuff like wires and bolts
3 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
as long as you know how to make them whats the harm. its just a tool.

Make them from scratch once
Don't worry, IMMs aren't frowned upon, especially if you make your own or import some beyond the default sets. I personally don't enjoy using them because they don't fit my style very well.

Are there any good reference images / tutorials for animating insects? (mostly walk cycle)

The 3D software used in the tutorial doesn't matter to me.

insects are generally easy to work with, they're bulky enough to where you can model and assemble different parts without fucking it up.
I've been messing with 3d bugs for quite along time now.. you can use some of my videos for 6 and 8 legged ealk cycles if youd like...

I also havesome sweet tutorials if yer a max user...

What challenges and obstacles are present in the journey of being a creative professional?

How do you view the difference between a "creative vocation", like a designer, artist, musician or dancer - and a vocation where creativity isn't viewed as a main tool or focal resource, like advocacy and engieneering?

its a combination of artistic and technical skill
that's why there are so few artists that fit in industry roles

also AAA workflows are cumbersome and require alot of time until you get everything done the right way.
concept art helps the the mission be more technical than artistic, fortunately

Hello 3,i want to know how to combine multiple meshes or subtools without losing details.

What are some "cheap" builds for render farms. I primarily use Blender cycles and Daz with Iray.

Seeing as how those are all about CUDA cores, should I just stack as many 980s or titans as I can?

Start a new build with dual 12 core opterons?
Single Xeon?

Get as many GPUs as you can with as many cores as possible. Stack them to the ceiling.

I want to understand what exactly happened to this book;

I've downloaded the pdf version and decided to buy it. Thing is, this book have 3 volumes. When I was digging into it, I've noticed the book is not being published anymore. At least, it looks so.
Then all I found was the videos from the 3 volumes and some guy trying to sell the new version of this book for 3000U$, what make me think that the publishers threw it away.
Or maybe there's no more book version, only the DVDs are being published

Is this retarded or genius?


Basically you segment a bunch of preexisting meshes into a database that you can later query for patches that fit certain constraints and looping patterns. As a programmer this seems quite logical and brilliant to me but I wanted to know what actual 3D artists think about it.

This is like zremesher on steroids and in real time.
I hope someone funds this.
It's pretty neat.
Could be useful if someone made this into a plugin.
If it cuts down the time an artist has to fiddle with technical aspects while producing great result, its fucking brilliant!
