Blender Model by sashas Blender Model by sashas
EDIT

I haven't done much work since the other day, but I thought I'd update the file because, I wanted to show exactly what I meant by what I posted the other day. LOL.

First off, Blender is a program used to create 3D/CGI graphics, movies, and games. It's free, and you may download it here: [link] I learned what little I do know from online tutorials (don't we all love google?)

I put up the wire frames, which are what I move about to get the form I want. I basically move the points/lines/faces with my cursor until I get the form I want. Subsurf makes the lines I edit conform to my shape and smooths out my model. Unfortunately this does not do the work for me. The first model has like 160 or so shapes. While the model on the bottom as around 2700 or something. I add these faces myself by cutting the faces I have up (usually in half).

Hmm, it may be that it's 2am, but somehow, I don't think that clarified anything. Oh well, I'll upload the finished head when I get to finishing it, which will supposedly be soon.


Yesterday's work on my 3d model. I didn't do any work today, because I felt sick and slept most of the day. Anyway, as you can see, I've made an outline of the shape. Basically, I took a cube and divided it up so that I could get the shape I wanted. Next, I need to define the shapes of the eyes, nose, and mouth. After that I edit everything in a 'subsurf' / smooth mode which is more representative of how the end rendering will look.

I'll upload my progress as I go.

This is good! I just downloaded Blender, and I hate using tutorials (I do a lot better if I figure things out for myself.) And I found the sculpting tool, but then I had to close it out to restart my computer, and genius me forgot where I found it at. XD I'm still learning though.

Hello, I know it's none of my business, but I noticed your comment as I was about to write my compliments.

I just wanted to say that, if you look at the image, you can see that it took her a lot of time to work on this; I, using animation and creation programs such as this one, know how tedious a task this can be. Not to be rude, but to even consider asking her to do a request is a little arrogant.
If you knew them personally, it may/would be a different situation but I can't say I believe that's the case.

If you really respect this artist, or any other, you should only ask if they're open to commissions (or trades). If you can't afford one, you shouldn't ask; otherwise ask if any contests would be available in the future that would give you a chance at receiving such prize as something like this.

Sorry, again, for sounding mean and like a White Knight...I don't even know this artist, this is the first thing I've ever seen by them; I would say this to anyone who'd asked the same. Just thought I could give you a little friendly advice for future reference, since doing things like this can hurt the artists feelings, or make them angry.

Good day to you! :)

no its ok and thank u :)
but i really didnt mean to bother the artist or something. i was really happy at that moment when i saw her art and knew that she can do or create a manga or anime face model in blender, so i thought to aske her, but i didnt mean by asking her that she must do it, it was her decision if she accepted my requset i would be very greatful to her and if she didnt thats ok with me cuz i know its needs a lot of time and effort to do and i never thought by asking her this that i would hurt her feelings and im really soory if did cuz i reaaly didnt meant it.and since she never reply to my requst i took that as she didnt accept it and it was fine with me.
any way, thanks for ur adivce u opened my eyes on something i didnt reailze it before cuz i always got cought in the moment and do things without thinking but i never meant any harm for any one.
so i hope she isnt angry with me cuz of my requst and wish her the best and to u too:)
thank u and Take Care ^____^

Blender is AWESOME!
It takes a little while to learn but to be honest.. it's the easiest 3d program around for modelling. If you manage to figure out animation, though.. I salute you. :D

I can't concentrate enough to even understand rigging.. The best I've managed was auto IK..

Is Blender the name of the software? I've never heard of that. Is it intense? I only know how to use Maya, and that junk is ridiculously hard.
Reply
:iconsashas:
sashas Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Yes, Blender is the name of the software. You can find info here: [link] It stacks up pretty well with Maya and such to be free: [link]

Mm, yes. I think you did your watermelon tree thing in Maya and the robot flying/swimming(I can't recall.) Those were good : ) I think I still have a soft spot for the 2d animation of the melon tree though :D

My friend used Maya for her class, and I would help her because the 3d environments are similar and the sculpting tools, knives, subdivides/whatever... Blender is harder to understand at first, because the organization of menus seems... well, retarded when you start out, but after a while, it makes sense. If you've done work with Maya, though, I don't think understanding it will be too difficult. I had never used an 3d program before using Blender.

Anyway, I enjoy and recommend it.

Is it complicated to animate like that? >: How do you 'sculpt' the model? Cause I hear it requires a lot of math, in a way. Dx *sucks at math*
Reply
:iconsashas:
sashas Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you. Har har, your avatar is so cute : )

Eh, I suppose there is some math involved in the timing and such, but as far as modeling... You don't really need it. I do the editing in a visual environment. No numbers involved.

There are some people who do scripting and such in python, which requires some programming, but I'm hoping to not need to learn that. XD

You're welcome. :3 --and thanks! Haha, it was a gift from :iconprincesschex:

Ah, yes. I see in your update that you use a wire frame to shape your model? :3 It seems like so much fun! I'd download it in a heartbeat, but I cant even make a 2D animation on flash, what more a 3D one? xD;;

--Quick question, does it use up a lot of space and require the same amount of processing speed as photoshop? o-o (or more?)
Reply
:iconsashas:
sashas Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
If I can do it, I'm sure you can as well : )

Blender doesn't take much room/processing speed (except when your are 'rendering';). The latest version is like 25MB. It takes like 2 minutes to download on a high speed connection.

omg, you have no idea how happy I am to hear that! -flails- I think I'll try it out, but first.. I gotta read up on how the thing works. xD;;
ANOTHER QUESTION, if I may, how do you apply 'color' like skin tones and stuff to your model? ;w; (I'm sorry I bombard you with questions all the time. xD)

There's a lot of tutorials on youtube and on the blender.org site saying how the interface works. Also check out the blender wiki: [link]

It's going well so far, by the look if it. The only thing I've ever done in 3D is a wine glass, this is far cooler. So you're going to animate it when you've finished then?
Reply
:iconsashas:
sashas Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Thank ya. I probably should have done something easier... LOL, I never even learned to make a glass XD Oh well, I figure the more complex, the more stuff I'll get to learn.

Yep, I'll be animating it. I've got a few animator friends so perhaps that can give me suggestions when I get to that stage. : )

Nah, it's more fun to do complcated things. I just did a wineglass because we were instructed to. May I say that it's looking very good at the moment.

I'm sure it will be fantastic. It's always useful to have friends in the know. :]

Looks pretty good so far! I've never used blender(I use Maya), but I heard it's free and I've read about some indy films that are using it. Does Blender have a hair app? That looks like it'll be the craziest part to model.
Reply
:iconsashas:
sashas Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks : ) Yes, blender is free. There have been a number of indie films done in it. The major downside to blender is that it lacks documentation, manuals, and the like. I does, however have a strong community that shares how they do things. You can use Blender to do hair: [link] & [link] You can use blenders particle system to render hair, control the strands, control curls, etc.

Nice! Looks like a pretty complex particle system. I should check Blender out some time. I'm pretty happy with Maya, but it doesn't hurt to learn another program.

sashas Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
In blender, you can switch between solid mode and wire-frame mode by pressing Z. In wire-frame, you can see through the object and continue to edit the object. So, you don't have to turn the model completely 'off' to shape things correctly.

Are you planning on keeping the painterly look even when she's 3D, or is this going to progress into the more pixar-type thing?

Either way, this looks awesome :)

If it's available, I'm hoping to do 3D animation at uni next year, so I will sit and learn from you in case we use blender, haha.
Reply
:iconsashas:
sashas Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Mm, I don't think I'll be keeping it painterly; The Rendering engine will do the shading/stuff for me, and I don't really know how to make it look like that in Blender. Glad you like it thus far.

I think most universities will be using Autodesk/Maya, but since Blender is very similar in it's capabilities, it's always nice to try it out. You can try out Blender for free here: [link] It works with all major operating systems.

I'll post whatever I learn as I learn it. : )

Ah! That is a little bit of a pity because the original looks really nice :) Well I hope it turns out alright!


I doubt my uni will be using something like Maya considering the extent of our learning for 2D animation was in Pencil >> I don't really go to an arts uni, just a uni which has an arts degree (for the moment anyway). Thank you for the link to Blender though!

And yay! I will keep a look out.

I go to a general university as well. We don't have an animation department under our art school but there are some Maya classes under the theater school (for game/special effects.) I have too many credits to take, so I'm just teaching myself : )

blenderartists.org has some very helpful forums as well : )

yeah it look's good...and i know what is to work with 3d, so i can see the effort on it..and i imagine that it must be hard to work with =__=
