Officially Back!I know I've been on using my phone here and there and my laptop to respond the best I could, but I've finally got stuff set up to work. I posted some pix of random stuff that have gone on for the last few days. Like driving, working on one of my computers, and setting up my stuff. I finally got to pull out my BRS tv version figma out of the box from the megacon last month. Its a great figma! Anyways enough with the bs. I gota start this miku. I now have 2x24" displays so I'm getting used to all the desktop space again. I was stuck with one 22" for a while and its been hard working like that.
Anyways going to look at miku's face and start working on that. I need to paint some eyes up!
Also I'm taking down the journal poll! Its pretty obvious what the response is!
BRS Cannon FinishedSo while I wait for ppl to get back to me I'll do some BRS stuff. Today I started with UVing and then just said what the heck lets just finish it. So did the UV's then baked AO. Then did a exploded view of the model and baked a normal map using Maya's transfer maps. The result was ok but I had some problems with the arms. Sp I put it in mudbox and subdivided it to get a high rez version and baked a normal map out of there and combined the two normal maps. The reason for the normal map is next!BRS Cannon Finished2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Once I have a normal map and AO I can then use Ndo2 by Quixel to generate Detail AO and a specular map. I then take all these textures and put them into Ddo which is probably the most powerful grunge filtering plugin ever made for 3d models. It takes data from all these maps and makes really nice stuff. For mmd I'm only using a diffuse for the weapon. But you can see in the preview window how it could look on the xbox or something.
Next is a quick stop in 3d max to fix vertex normals and sort sub
My thoughts on W/MMDC /seriousface. I want to take a few minutes and talk about the Western MMDC. Lately its been brought to my attention people have done some pretty dick things with my work.My thoughts on W/MMDC1 month ago in Personal More Like This
I've posted about this once before and while I'm very grateful I'm notified by people that look out for me, frankly every time I here this I'm less interested in sharing anything I do to be honest. I want to share with good people that deserve nice things.
Some people don't understand and wonder why would I care? Well lets start with taking credit for things that you didn't do. Most schools teach this stuff around 3rd grade in the form of plagiarism. If you don't know that word please google it. Removing some ones name and putting your own on something you didn't do is exactly like plagiarism no matter how innocent you think it is. It's why copy right laws exist and why dA provides a basic copyright when your work is uploaded. If I need to explain it further you should close your dA account today fo
