Ive been learning to make characters in my free time for a long time.
I dont have the money for going to a school so I'm using the internet for this.
The bad thing is I dont have a nice workflow. I mean, I followed tutorials from here and there, texturing, some modeling, retopo, etc
Is there any site, tutorial or anything which can orient me in the right way? I always get the feeling I'm doing it all wrong at the end.
I want to have a 2014-2015 tutorial from the very first polygon to the rigging and postpro tools.
Any nice websites? I would pay for a complete tutorial.
>I would pay for a complete tutorial.
I don't really know any specific one, but browse those tutorial websites, find something you like and download it on cgpeers. If it turns out to not be helpful at least you didn't pay for it.
most important step in your workflow will be realizing that for example the picture you posted, that has very little to do with workflow/applications/render settings/photoshop layers/blah blah blah.. that is a nice piece of art that the artist who created it studied long and hard to achieve , if you want a 'good workflow' for characters. learn anatomy , understand how humans and creatures work, how the skeleton works, how the muscles work, and how clothing works, how different cloth folds , why it folds. for character creation the work flow is generally the same across the board with slight variations. the workflow is make the character(either using zbrush to sculp the character or poly-modeling the character, most artists sculpt ) after you have that basemesh start dressing the character , again zbrush or poly-modeling. there isn't a good workflow that will somehow make up for your lack of knowledge in the fundamental artistic principals, just because it's made on a computer doesn't mean it isn't art, the computer is just a tool.
>implying way too much
that's why you have a crappy job m8 (if you even have one)
