Modeling a character BaseMesh in Blender (Tutorial)

  • Am Vor year

    sociamixsociamix

    In this tutorial I'm going to show you my workflow in order to model a character base mesh in Blender. It could be used later on as a starting point for a sculpt. We are going to see how to arrange a good topology and how to make optimal decisions when needed during this process.

@J 1 I don't understand the problem, just apply the mirror modifier when you're done modeling the mesh

Great video! Thank you so much for showing your steps and thought process clearly. I am having a bit of trouble following along, and was wondering if anyone could help me out? At the stage of extruding the neck, I only have 11 vertices. Later on, I believe this created an issue. The loop cut at 50:51 does not flow across to the back for me, it flows down the arm. I tried reconstructing the topology behind the arm and failed miserably. Lots of n-gon shapes ensued. So I guess my question is this: Does anyone know a good resource for learning how to solve topological problems, general guidelines, pitfalls, strategies etc.?

if you are using a laptop that might be a shortcut to pause stuff. you can try to fn + f5 to see if it fixes the problem.

I decided to learn this program about 4 weeks ago. I spend around 9 hours a day on it watching tutorials and trying to follow on. This is maybe the best I have seen. But I had no idea how hard everything is to do. I have successfully made animations just with adobe photoshop and premiere in the past. (Almost having to draw every image for 24 frames a second-Imagine!) After trying this for so long I have concluded if I am going to produce another animated film before I die, I had better go back to adobe. I will never get this. It's just too hard and too slow.

GUYS I DONT SEE LOOP TOOLS ON MINE? 42:30 Edit: you go to *Edit* --> *preferences* --> *Add-ons* --> then search for "Loop Tools" Edit 2: If you circle has a broken part, just reattach it to the mirrored side of your neck by moving it. Edit 3: NVM HE EXPLAINS IT 10 SECONDS AFTERWARDS. 42:40 Edit 4: I FEEL LIKE IM GOING CRAZY! THE NECK COLLIDES WITH THE MIRRORED SIDE, SO ALL THE SUDDEN THEY GET MERGED TOGETHER, AND I CANT FIX IT, BECAUSE IT JUST GETS WORSE!!!!!.

If you turn off clipping in the mirror modifier tab, it could prevent that from happening. From there you can readjust the vertices so theyre all on one side and reenable clipping. Hope this helps and I'm not too late

Very good! I don't think I have ever seen someone start with the head before. Most character tutorials like this I see people start with the torso and build from there.

in case someone dumb like me does the same thing i did at 17:57. I was trying to get rid of those 4 vertices but instead of clicking on the one dot, i skipped to where there was 4 squares gone, so i assumed to highlight the 4 squares. TIP: dont skip any part of this video like me, you will miss something in the slightest skip.
