Hi all,

here is my first "serious" volumetric skulpting experiment. As soon as I've more time, I will post some more. About 45 minutes "doodling" around. Sculpted from default volume-sphere.
I love the new features... :)

I guess, the carve and build tools are not far from perfect. I've not experimented with higher resolutions... we will see.

Hope u like it.
Chris

Very nice gorilla!

Been a while since i doodled. Perhaps now is a good time. I doubt id shake something that nice out of my sleeve in 45 mins though!

Thanx. Just take a photo and begin to doodle, like me. I've placed the picture in another window and began to skulpt. It's a good way for training.

Another point:
I am very interested how good 3DC will be in details, espacially corners, wrinkles and things like that. At the moment the volume skulpting feels too "blubby". The model resolution will answer this, I guess.

Be creative

Yeah thats usually how i do it too. Recently aquired a second monitor which is great because now i can just open up some ref pics on that one. :)

Took your advice and started modelling something ive been wanting to model for a long time now (i find these guys so funny looking). No im not spoiling it you will have to check out my thread. ;)

On the resolution. Perhaps im stating the obvious here but you do know that with the "Inc Resolution" you can step up in resolution right? The only downside is you cant step back (yet).

Currently resolution is "fixed to worldspace" so resolution is dependant on the size of your model. Remember this if you import a basemesh to start with and want to start with a lower res (in which case you should scale it relatively small before converting it to voxels).

Cheers!

Thanx, yes I know that. But my gorilla szene "say good bye" after the fourth increasing... too low mem, I guess. I have "only" 3 gigs, because of my WinXPpro 32 system.

Bad news for me. :(
My gorilla project crashed while saving, today. I just pressed CTRL-S and "bang!" "Not enough memory" for saving... very bad, but that's the risks in alpha versions...
The "saved" file have 0 bytes now...

But I will start a new session when it is going to beta phase. Gorillas are so interesting animals.

Chris

Awww... that's too bad. :(

And I believe the new born Gorillas will be stronger than his brother, and more stable as well.

Sorry to hear that. Its a shame but as you say a risk. I do a lot of incremental saves; im a bit paranoid in that way but have not had the misfortune to lose work yet. So far the alpha has been really stable for me. When I tried to push the default sphere to the 4th level today on my workstation at work it also said bye though. :lol: Im certain it will be improved. :)

On a sidenote this may be of importance for you too if your pushing resolution:

DirectX and big meshes bug

Keep up the doodles ;)

I'm also with 3dioot, I do alot of incremental saves but since the files grow so large the more work is done, I have to throttle how many I've got saved due to lack of hard drive space.

Ok, it's addiction... :blink:
2 1/2 hours doodling around. No reference.
Main tools: Extrude, Scrape, Carve and Smooth.

Have fun.

Im glad to see you werent discouraged by your loss. Nice works! :)

I know how you feel about being addicted. I recently downloaded mudbox and while cool its much too slow on my system (smooth but slow) and i was allready missing the "voxel freedom" to do whatever you want without planning anything. Once 3dcoat gets feature complete (we got hiding in latest update: hurray!) where we can easily sculpt parts and merge and subtract at will there will be no comparison to the other sculpting apps. :D

I have fun with your sculpts. Very nice!
I also can't resist from sculpting instead of sleeping - 3D Coat is unhealthy!!! :-)

Hi guys,

after a long break I've started my first idea again, to sculpt a gorilla. I hope I've the energy to finish it. I've to discipline me to do the details at the end...
The arms and the legs are not final... end it needs some proportional adjustments.
I've the feeling transforming modelparts needs a very fast PC...

Regards
Chris

Do someone have a good tip to smooth up a model? My gorilla is on resolution level 2, but the model grows and the voxels, too. I love the scrape-tool to make the model cleaner. But is there a better and faster way?

Next time, I plan to use the 2D tools earlier, and the object tools, like the "curves" to define the base shape accurate. It is hard to build up a model from scratch if you are on a higher voxel level. Probably I need more discipline at the beginning and define the whole model as far as possible on a very early voxel-level, next time.

@Andrew: Is there no chance to build in voxel levels, where I can switch inbetween? I remember someone asked this already before.

It is difficult thing, but I know, it is important, so I am thinking how to do that.
