Hi! So ive been learning how to use Blender 2.74 since earlier in the year. Ive been watching different tutuorials and whatnot to figure out how to create character model from scratch. This is my Low Poly attempt and since working on the body ive moved on to the hair obviously but now I have actually made the hair a separate mesh. I thought since the body is modeled with the Mirror Modifier I should try making it separate cuz it's obv supposed to be non symmetrical, however when i move everything around the hair dosent stay with the body. How do I reattach or set the separate...

You need to follow/watch a tutorial on topology. You have none and all your work is wasted.

Is facial topology absolutly necessary for something low poly that will eventually have UV wrap/mapped face on it?

Iam just a beginner, I tried working topology on a hi poly face like this one. What else should I really be looking to learn from tutorials?

Facial topology is only important if you plan on animating the face.

Welp. Sophomore in a community college. Project due in 3 hours. Due to software failure and procrastination I'm probably going to fail the class. 10/10.

Because you're wasting your time on here instead of working on preparing the hand in. Yes, you will fail because you will end up handing in nothing. Do everything you can and hand in what you've got bag the end of it. This is all your fault, but handing in nothing is a guaranteed fail.
Harsh but true. And I usually fucking hate most of the assholes on this board. But this guy ain't one of them. Hand in something OP. Better than nothing.

Maybe combine old projects into one big clusterfuck of a scene?
Holy shit 3 hours, if its something easy like a car, its doable but its be shitty, but damn you are doing an environment.

Work big, get the general shape of things, fuck the little details, make sure its readable, slap some tiled textures on there and you're good to go. At least give your environment some character.

Poser is mostly pre-made. It is intended to pull up a model, pose, in whatever scene you want, and render.
Drag and drop any figure from the library into a scene. Drag, and drop specific clothing, pose, and go.

YouTube can be your friend.

yes there vids are great
better quality than most youtube videos

enter edit mode and create loop cuts then extrude the faces of the mesh outwards until you have teeth.

It would help if you said what you were using in Maya. Is this viewport 2.0? Mentalray? Vray?
Sry my bad! using mental ray
sss shader only works in mental ray i think

why is the back of the slide curving like that and how do I fix it? I've tried relaxing it and it just wont straighten up properly.

Using the latest version of blender btw.

Does blender have a straighten function?'

If not you can just scale it.
I'm tried the straighten tool and literally nothing happened, I've projected each side from view and put them next to each other but it'll turn out fucked when I try to normal map.

I'm brand new to UV mapping so any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Just take what you've got there and stitch them together.

How do I unwrap this? I'm relatively new to the texturing part and I'm using this bedpost for my game, so it needs to be somewhat seamless and have a consistent pattern. When I unwrap a cylinder it comes out fine, but since this has triangles and pinch points will i have to texture a cylinder and make a new post from there? Or can I just vacuum seal the plain cylinder's texture around the bedpost?

this one looks almost good but the top uv mapping option doesnt come out very straight
Seams are not a huge problem and having a few well placed ones can massively reduce reduce distortion and stretching and generally increasing the quality of the model. Just chop the top off of the bedpost.

Seam would be unnoticeable if you place them in the right places, like in pic related.

You shouldn't have that as one entire unwrap either for many reasons.

hey /3 i have a very serious life changing question that i need your opinions on.
so im graduating from a shitty community college in few months and i wanna take this 3D game seriously, so i really want to continue my education at gnomon school of visual effects and just want to know if you guys think its worth it. i haven't heard anything but good things about it so far. i also been told that gnomon is a grate way to get your foot threw the doors when starting out because of all the contacts and connections you make.
also I watch thair live streams when they do these...

It's one of the few CG related schools actually worth attending in the world. Nearly all others are just scams that churn out gamer kids who want to maek gaemez, usually staffed by former students are nobodys who never made it in the industry.

Gnomon is highly respected. Though they tend to focus more on film/production CG, not game modeling. But the skills still apply.
i think they teach a balance for video games and film and 3D for movies and games is divided by a thin line, if you're trained to create HD models for movies, modeling for games will be a breeze

The self-thought method is really good, but nothing will crank your skills and motivation like being surrounded by quality teachers and other artists. I'd say, if you have the money and you believe in yourself, go for it! >>498097 is right, Gnomon is worth it

I need help with how to access OpenCL options for faster Cycles Rendering in Blender. I got tired of bullshit of looking up in Google, and not even BlenderArtist is willing to give me straight answers.

The chip type is Intel(R) HD Graphics Family and its version is 10.18..14.4112. and I don't want to fuck up my PC.
11 replies and 2 images submitted. Click here to view.
You need to add and set an environment variable "CYCLES_OPENCL_SPLIT_KERNEL_TEST" (without the quotes) to 1. FYI I tried OpenCL through Intel on my netbook and Blender crashed due to running out of memory.
Do I need to get TechPowerUp first, or is it already installed?

Where do I download/find it in web/PC?
You can't do faster Cycles rendering with no dedicated GPU. That's the reason why you can't make use of that stuff.

You either need some recent Nvidia card or something by AMD but AMD support is quite buggy still.

The graphics are low poly so that it can run on laptops. Any low poly approaches?
low poly is most of the time harder, since you are trying to convey information with less
especially with likeness
