How do you pose your...
Anonymous 06/28/14(Sat)17:23 UTC+1 No.428839 Report

How do you pose your characters /3/?
I mean, if my goal is to make a still image instead of animation or game stuff should I model the characters on their still pose (and afterwards rig them to pose) or should I model then at the finished pose from the start?

Picture related, how would you model this character?

i would never model that trash. Lrn2 draw, lrn2 render

This. You're not allowed to have your own style, it has to look exactly like everyone else's. You can never be original, because faggots will bother you and complain.

>>428856 it's not OP since I'm OP

My question still remains:

in 2 dimensions.

My 3D teacher made us do a "silhouette" of the pose with simple primitives(box, cylinder ..). This way, you can check every side of the pose, and when it's good, you can start modeling over it. You "gabarit" is the key of your future pose. Don't fuck it, and your pose should be good.

That's an interesting idea. Thanks for sharing it :)

I'd model in a symmetrical neutral pose just because that's easier to do, then rig it and pose it with that. Imagine modelling the OP{ image in it's posed. Nothing could be transferred with a symmetry tool or mirroring.

This is great advice. I spend a lot of my time posing charactters and I'm always looking at the silhouette - if it doesn't look good from ALL angles, it's not going to look good at ANY angle.

actually you only need it to look good from the camera angle.
Anonymous 06/29/14(Sun)01:43 UTC+1 No.428931 Report

Not from my experience. I always find it a good idea to make sure the silhouette is good from all angles - it simply strengthens the pose.

take a look at movies, only one angle needs to look good, and thats it.
Anonymous 06/29/14(Sun)06:20 UTC+1 No.428950 Report

Whenever the pose doesn't look good, that's when I start double checking it at different angles. Maybe the back isn't arched enough? Maybe there isn't enough forward momentum? Maybe I need to move the arms forward a little? Oh, that's why it looks bad!

Take a look at video games.

enemies in video games only come at you from the front, and in shmups only the top down view. You lost.

>>428994you want to make...
you want to make that argument work?

whatever the fuck works, make it happen.

there is no need to look good from every angle, just make it look good.

and one more, in this context we are talking about a still picture, not a 3d interactive scenario. but lets go videogames at large. most cutscenes don't give you control of the angle you view it at so make it work.

and lets go again, games that give you control, almost always have cutscenes that just don't look right. you wont let me advance, i have to listen, just take control out of my hands and give me a better cutscene.
