Woke me up by tchaikovsky2 Woke me up by tchaikovsky2
Just in case: this is not TF art. There.


Goodness gracious me, she's such a laze! :lol:
Or not. Sometimes she sleeps 'til afternoon, and sometimes she stays awake all night to wander off into the mountains.

Also, this isn't her home. It's just something I visualized in me head, and didn't want to change, because it made the atmosphere all the more lazy. Plus, I REALLY wanted to do a very monochromatic piece one of these days. :drool:
Might do it again sometime...




Hey, you! Like anthro chinese crested dogs and/or amphibians? Then why don't you

check out more pictures with Jinjing-Yu (and Adreea) over HERE? :la:





Also 2, I gots me a new wallpaypar fer me tablit! :dummy:
And that's specifically why I made this piece.
It looks beautiful on that cheap screen. Mmmmh... Ahhh... :drool:

Also 3, I made an alternative version, all nicely black and white, looking like it's a photo shot in the '30s.
IT IS RIGHT HERE! :eyes:

Also 4, holy crap, my second DD! :la: Woohoo, so happy! :la:
Funny how they're both very simple pieces that took less than a week to make. :lol:
But at least I'm actually happy with how this one came out! :dummy:

And wow, the improvements you've made since are very noticeable! But still, every Jinjing-Yu picture is a treasure <3

Very nice - I like the very plain setting as it just lets you draw your eyes over the character.  Very natural, lazy but playful pose, and again - love those little toes of hers!  So cute.

I'm super-glad you like it (and them, heehee)! :dummy:

*chuckles* I could see a lot of lazy Jinjing-Yu pics - she has such a graceful body for laying and slumping all relaxed-like against something; over a chair, on a couch, on a warm rock by the beach, a hammock... endless possibilities.  I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

I'm still trying to decide how much time I can sacrifice to dA at the moment. I have so much going on right now that it'd probably be dumb to spend a ton of time on the site, but it's also good for my mental health to be creative or at least see art occasionally, so . . . :shrug:

I mean, I understand, of course, but it's just such a pity that you (and your art) are here so rarely.

Well, at least the next time when you're back, you'll submit something, and get another DD all of a sudden! :lol:

holy crap man. You are very good at what you do.

couple of questions that i am sure you get all the time, i just cant seem to find the answers:

What 3D program(s) do you use?
What method do you use for posing your models?
What are the most interesting subjects you have sculpted?
And finally, do you have any tips for a 3D student such as myself?

I look forward to seeing more of your work, don't let the haters get you down :)

tchaikovsky2 Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Wheee, big thanks! :dummy:

Yeah, I get those sometimes, I think on this piece as well, so you're not very good at searching. :XD:

ANYWAY:
I use 3ds max for basic modeling and rendering, and ZBrush for sculpting and partial texturing (rest of the texturing is done in Photoshop).

Posing is done entirely in ZBrush; mainly because I'm not friends with rigging, and because it lets me sculpt post-pose details (wrinkles, folds, etc.).

For me, there's no such thing as a non-interesting subject, because I only sculpt whatever I like (hobbyist, not proffesional). But I think I had the most fun with Lucas because details. :la:

As for a tip... uhhh. Hmm... Hard to come up with something, because I don't know your level of advancement. ^^;
Tell me what is your most imperfect 3D skill (other than rigging and animation), and I'll try to help you with that. :la:

I am absolutely terrible with texturing. Is there anyway to make it less of pain in the bum? (usually setting up UV maps make me bang my head on the wall, but it might just be because Maya is a cold hearted devil)
Reply
:icontchaikovsky2:
tchaikovsky2 Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, I will not be very useful here. I don't use Maya. :crying:
I'll tell you what I can though.

For character UVs, I use mostly Max's Pelt tool (sometimes Peel as well); but before that, the point-to-point seam tool to define shells. After I have everything flattened, I use relax on the UV shells (still not sure how many of these tools are in Maya), sometimes tweak them manually to get rid of overlaps.
For less complex objects, I get all lazy and usually use something like box mapping (or flatten mapping) and then tweak the hell outta the result. :XD:

Now, to actually be a bit more helpful: ZBrush. If you have (or can have) access to it, it has this AMAAAZING plugin called UV Master. It can create one-click human-readable UVs in a fraction of a second! :la:
AND you can use various tools and options to control the way it does them!
Also, I hear lots of people talking lots of good things about Roadkill (pretty sure it's not free though). And I read somewhere about Headus being even better than Roadkill. It's expensive though.

As for the actual texturing, one tip I can give you is: if you bake a displacement map for any object, you can use it on top of its texture in Photoshop (as Overlay or Soft Light) to emphasize the depth. I use that trick with several kinds of maps baked from ZBrush (disp on subdivisions 1 and 3 usually, cavity map for bringing out the tiniest details, and an AO map).

I HOPE THAT HELPS, EVEN IF JUST A LITTLE BIT! :dummy:

Yes, this was very helpful, most things in 3D Max and Maya cross over, I haven't gotten to use Z-brush yet but it is coming up in my next couple of quarters. I will look into all those programs, thank you for your Info! :D

Not trying to impose on your opinion... but what makes them hideous? Chinese cresteds are just like you and I. Thick hair on it's head, tail and feet, with thin almost non-existant hair everywhere else. Why is that hideous to you? Are you calling yourself hideous? I don't see how they're hideous, per se. Is it the bare skin? You have bare skin...Please help me understand.

Not true. THIS is a hideous creature.
Everyone else (including me) seems to find Jinjing-Yu cute.
Or disturbing, if they're too conventional for anthro.

Also, sometimes it's better not to say a thing, than to say something bad. You, my lass, have just hurt my feelings quite badly.

wolf anthro after wolf anthro after wolf anthro gets boring. what makes it interesting is the freakiness, the oddities, and the differences in everyone's versions and this is a version which idealists wouldnt appreciate because they like perfect animals. just because it looks different doesnt mean it has a problem! the only 'problem' here is people's lack of appreciation for unique animals

I don't generally pay attention to these things but it was a dd. I'm all for odd, but this particular piece is disgusting looking to me. The dogs themselves are pretty ugly but still kinda cute in a way.

Actually... your comments are disgusting. If you don't like it, gtfo the page. It's a very simple concept, really. Getting a DD has nothing to do with YOUR opinion anyway (thank God), but plenty of other people love this piece (hence the awarded DD... ya think?), including myself. Common decency would have you shut your mouth before saying something ugly... but I'd imagine you've no idea what that is. Shame on your parents.

I definitely think they're cool, but I sometimes want to strangle mine. They have no concept of 'the human is sleeping... it is 3 AM and NOT time for breakfast' No. They are... soooo irritating. They're lucky they're cute. =_= And they bark at EVERYTHING. Constantly.

"they bark at EVERYTHING. Constantly."
That is actually a very common characteristic of small dogs.  I've owned a few "toy" dogs (not chinese crested, unfortunately) and they get frightened by the smallest of things.
I once laughed uncontrolably because my young Shih Tzu was freightend by a falling leaf.
