Collab2021 - WIP - mishag

This is a thread to document my progress for the 2021 Collab Project! So excited to share my work and totally open for any feedback!

  • Hey everyone! This is my first attempt to model a lantern! Open to any feedback how to improve! Thank you! :)

  • hey nice work, perhaps its nice to make a second one where the top of the lanter has the oposite flow so instead of these rounding ) -> going to these rounding ( . then you have 2 examples ready to choose between :)

  • Homework Submission - Week 1 - Lantern


    Here is my model of a lantern. Just made another flow on the top, like yyukinoh1989 suggested and actually I like it much more. Still thinking about how to improve my model and hoping for a feedback! Thank you a lot!

    • great job you did amazing work , love the shape it has gotten. looking forward to the final result :)

      Very nice work mmishag! Clean topology and the model reads very authentic to the art despite the lanterns being so small in the image. You've earned full points from me 👍

      Since you've built this as a smoothable model, you're in great position to begin sculpting accents like I did in yesterday's stream. Only difference is you'll need to build a lo-res (final geometry) version to bake to after sculpting. That should be simple though: Just duplicating your hi-res version, removing multires modifier, and minimizing geometry till it's the essential shape for baking.

      If that's confusing I will explain more next week to everyone.

    • Thank you so much for reply! 

      Since there was no action in my thread, I had and inspiration today to make another model from scratch :D I'll upload it a bit later, still need to finish that mount to the wall (was able to see more details on that higher res reference picture). I think the same comments from yours will apply to that work aswell. The only thing I didn't use any modifiers in both models, just bevels and loopcuts. So I'll need to remove some geometry by hand?

    • P.S. I wasn't be able to watch yesterday's live stream, it was too late for me :( So will do it when it'll be available!
