Student Application Thread (3D Assets.)

Recommended Posts

1)Nifscope,Blender,gimp,photoshop

2)Architecture and clutter for now due to the high level of organic shapes and creatures after I have more experience.

3)Prefer video tutorials, if you could provide links with topics or possibly make a video that would be great; Have Skype for help, criticism, and guidance.

4)Built a base mesh for a small object, been working on building a house base mesh and its coming along nicely, opened nifscope edited a mod then got out of there since I had no idea what I was doing.  Done some work in gimp with file conversions making an overlay for a streamer and a few other simple projects but would like to learn to use photoshop since it seems faster.

5) Thought about joining and time commitment before I joined so I promise I won't abandon after a bit of "work".  Enjoy 3d modeling and often get absorbed into high detail when I do it.

6)(yesi'mcreatinga6)(what do I need to learn) How to operate nifscope,applying textures, backfaceculling solutions if it is important after base mesh, collision meshes,  basically all but how to build base meshes.

-look forward to learning and creating with this community.^_^

1. I want to learn how to use 3D Max and Zbrush, they seem to be good.

2. I'm not sure, to be honest. I'd like to try my hand in everything and then think on what I like most. 

3. I can use Skype if needed, but forums are preferable. 

4. Little to none, honestly. 

5. Well... I'm Waffles' friend, if that counts for anything.

I've started a thread for you, so let's move on over there.

  1. What applications do you use to make 3D assets? You need at minimum Nifscope, a modelling program, and a image editing software. (Blender, GIMP to give an example.)

    I've got Blender, 3DS Max 2015 with Nif plugin(I'd prefer to learn Blender though since it's not as confusing), Gimp, and Nifskope, which I haven't really touched.
     
  2. What kind of assets are you interested in learning to make? (Architecture, Creatures, Clutter, ect.)

    I want to start simple, with clutter and then possibly graduate to other assets like weapons and armor, etc. then architecture, and finally, creatures, since those require scripting.
     
  3. What is your preferred way of learning (Having a thread is required, but if you prefer to see things in skype for example list that here.)

    Forums are nice; videos or screens definitely help out a lot since I'm a visual learner mostly.
     
  4. How much experience do you have in making Assets?

    I haven't made assets before for Skyrim - mainly did texture work for MC resource packs with Paint.net and toyed around with MCAnimator. Wanted to get into scripting animations, but haven't yet. The interior claims I'm doing for Cyrodiil are the first time I've actually gotten into the more technical aspects of modding beyond other basic aspects of the Creation Kit, such as editing abilities and creating races, etc.
     
  5. You can also post a bit about yourself and why you want to learn here if you like.

    Well, I'd just like to be able to develop a more well-rounded skillset, as there are a lot of ideas I've wanted to pursue in the past but have been limited on the technical end as I'm geared toward writing, etc. I've got a lot of time on my hands as well due to extenuating circumstances so I can understand if there aren't any folks available at the moment. I plan on pursuing it regardless of whether anyone here is able to assist.

We talked a little bit on skype, but if you'd like I can make a thread here if you want to learn a bit of 3DS max. Let me know if so?

3ds Max and I'v recently started to learn Substance Painter. I am willing and will learn Nifscope and an image editing software.

What kind of assets are you interested in learning to make? (Architecture, Creatures, Clutter, ect.)

Architecture, Clutter, Weapons and Armour.

What is your preferred way of learning (Having a thread is required, but if you prefer to see things in skype for example list that here.)

Either way or both suit me fine although my mic is broke but I will be getting a new one as soon as possible.

How much experience do you have in making Assets?

Well, I would say maybe basic to intermediate although I am self thought so I have no doubt that I missed out on alot of the fundamentals etc, the why's and not just the hows if that makes sense xD

You can also post a bit about yourself and why you want to learn here if you like.

I want to learn here because I love The Elder Ecrolls and 3D Modeling and I want to help out but sadly I am not really confident in my abilities as a 3d Modeler yet. I have made a nice few models so far (mostly high poly and not UV'd or textured) but I understand modeling for games is a whole lot different.

I have recently (very recently) started learning to UV and texture aswell.

hey guys just need help on the work flow on using neftskope and BSAopt. I have experience in modelling and sculpting, I sue 3DS max and mudbox, I can also unwrap, but I just need help on extracting models in skyrim and the generic workflow like on how to get models from skyrim into 3DS max and similar things to this, someone from iliac bay directed me here.

Want to learn Blender... also know Nifskope, Speedtree, Topogun, Max, ZBrush

What kind of assets are you interested in learning to make? (Architecture, Creatures, Clutter, ect.)

Architecture, Clutter

What is your preffered way of learning (Having a thread is required, but if you prefer to see things in skype for example list that here.)

Here and Discord

How much experience do you have in making Assets?

A lot... :D

You can also post a bit about yourself and why you want to learn here if you like.

Well everyone knows who I am lol. I want to move away from Max and familiarize myself with Blender. In the process I may assist with the development of the Blender nif plugin if I can wrap my head around it. For now though I just want to get an understanding of how a typical modeling workflow goes in Blender.

I have Blender, 3dsmax 2014/2016 and Maya 2014 as well as Photoshop CC and NifSkope 2.0

I have most "experience" with Blender, and I know the ropes of Photoshop.

 

What kind of assets are you interested in learning to make? (Architecture, Creatures, Clutter, etc.)

I'm fine with anything, clutter and architecture looks very interesting.

 

What is your preferred way of learning?

I'm fine with the thread and can use skype if you'd like.
 

How much experience do you have in making Assets?

Very basic, have made a couple of simple stuff objects like barrels, mugs etc. No experience with texture work etc.

 

You can also post a bit about yourself and why you want to learn here if you like.

I'd like to learn making 3d assets because I want to help out with BS in more than one way.

I'm currently learning level design as well but I tend to hop between multiple tasks so learning this too will make me one step closer to being a jack of all trades ;)

  • What applications do you use to make 3D assets? You need at minimum Nifscope, a modelling program, and a image editing software.

I use 3D Max 2012 (don't mind learning blender) and photoshop, NifSkope, also have zbrush. I have learned how to use 3D Max and made a dagger and got it's UVW map. Would like to learn more about it, and learn how to texture.

  • What kind of assets are you interested in learning to make? (Architecture, Creatures, Clutter, ect.)

All of it.

  • What is your preffered way of learning

In a thread is ok.

  • How much experience do you have in making Assets?

What I said on the first one :3

I've always wanted to try and mod skyrim, and don't mind helping in the BS project. I am Portuguese, 20, Male.

My main workflow uses Zbrush + Max + various texturing software for pretty much everything. I can help you learn the ropes of the workflow/software if you'd like.
