  • I'm almost certain he edited the picture, in-game smoke and blood doesn't look that delicious.

  • Still really new to posing. Trying to get used to SuperDOF. I know it's a bit fucked up. Tips? [IMG]http://i.cubeupload.com/hbdi2Q.jpg[/IMG]
  • Is that a shoulder? A little too much zoom, zoom out and bring in the camera a bit so it'll be a bit more clear. Lighting is a little dim, but posing looks good.

  • if it takes you 8-20 hours to pose something then something is wrong editing on the other hand isn't quite so forgiving

But I can't see how you can use three hours on a couple of blokes.

  • [QUOTE=Exorade;35878745]That kinda depends of the scale though. But I can't see how you can use three hours on a couple of blokes.[/QUOTE] Three hours including the Photoshopping (light on Medic + Heavy). As I said, i'm new to this. Meaning this was my first serious Gmod pose that i've done in over 2 years. Also, I was trying out some ragdoll posing tools so it's more like posing something in a 3D animating program.
  • Argh, I do not know how to use Photoshop. So far what I make looks poor to me.

  • Photoshop not needed. Your survivors/scavengers/urban warriors look pretty cool.

So to start, a Volus crackdown.:v: [IMG]http://img607.imageshack.us/img607/9831/volus1.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://img836.imageshack.us/img836/434/volus2.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://img35.imageshack.us/img35/6695/volus3.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://img155.imageshack.us/img155/8900/volus4.jpg[/IMG]
  • [QUOTE=McTbone;35881659]Photoshop not needed. Your survivors/scavengers/urban warriors look pretty cool.[/QUOTE] Oh. Thanks. I guess I'll just use Photoshop to clean up the pics a little, because the raw screenshot looks very bland. [QUOTE=DerMaus;35882038]Reminds me of Fallen Earth.[/QUOTE] That's what I was aiming for, a desolate, apocalyptic feel. I still don't think I did a very good job at it, but I tried anyway. Spent a good hour trying to work out the makeshift sword on the first picture. Next step: Making an armory. Am I rambling?
  • Oh when I said 8-20 hours I mean about 1-4 to pose depending on complexity (some times I spend an hour just farting around looking for locations) a half hour to an hour to take the screenshots if I have to do any fancy lighting or effects in-game, an then 1-15+ hours for editing. Sometimes my screenshots take two hours or less, but all of the ones I'm really proud of are the ones where I spend hours on end for two days straight editing and tweaking them. A lot of it's painting and compositing different effects, but I can spend 4 or 5 hours just playing around with something and scrapping it because I don't like it or it won't work. If I redid them and knew what I was doing it'd be more like 5 or 6 max but I love experimenting. I probably sound a few degrees of insane now that I think about it haha.

So far what I make looks poor to me.[/QUOTE] you've got the right idea with posing (or at least it's functional at this point), but your camera angles are wasting a lot of space. try to zoom in on the model so that it takes up a certain amount of the screen, like so: [IMG]http://filesmelt.com/dl/gm_infected_corridor0001.jpg[/IMG] once you learn to use the right amount of zoom you can move onto lighting, and only at that point should you be worrying about editing

Now the largest horde had descended onto the metrocop. He had his trusty handgun and his friend, who died taking photos of his last stand. Now all he had was his gun and his fists to fight the dead.... Hope yer like.

  • Her face made me laugh. Also whatthefuck is that thing in the background?
  • Well since Sebi mentioned it, when faceposing make sure you study facial anatomy for a few minutes to ensure you're getting a realistic face pose, just google facial expressions or something to that effect. For example, her eyebrows don't seem to have changed from the idle pose, and don't match her mouth, thus she looks like a curious gopher. Posing is nice and composition is okay though, it's not bad.

  • There wont be one, on further advice by Bloocobalt. It will be kept between trusted people and within the Total War forum game.

  • So is getting asked if they can use the models as bases for their own models/reskins, over and over again.
