What's wrong with Monzki's Allonzo Trier? Think he did a fine job with him

Any chance we will see the release of this updated Kevin Porter Jr. of USC from this video any time soon?

Once again, thanks for all the work you put into making CFs for this game :mrgreen: (Y) .

No, it was me blang. I updated the CF with 3D hair. That video I was just showing nick15 that I had completed the USC uniforms and stadium. The CF was never shared because I wouldn't edit someone's else's work and release it without permission.

You have my permission :D feel free to edit any cf that you want. I don't really have great pics/too much time for all of my cyberfaces so I'm glad if someone can tweak them and make them better.

I've only seen one other CF of him and yours is the most accurate. Even without the best reference pics, you make some great CFs. I'll release it.

Thanks! I think I kinda rushed it a little bit, the pic is kinda old, he still had braids on it. I wanted to make it as quickly as possible, and didn't really adjust the coloring very well, which quite often takes the most time when making cyber faces, especially when there is a huge shadow like in this one. Similar thing happened to me with Michael Beasley cyber face.

That's a nice photo. What I've learned is that when you have at least one good side, that's all you need :wink:

Yeah, but I don't really like using that strategy.. basically no one's face is symmetric, so if you use only one side, you're not really getting the same guy. It can turn out to be decent, but I always do it the hard way :D

True, I hear you on that, but sometimes i will copy details from the other side to assist with that.

nice works Blang2k. I just want to ask how do you improve your textures? Seems like whatever available refpic there is you still manage to get it accurate

Ugh, I think it's mostly due to experience/practice making cyber faces. The most important part is painting the texture in Blender from the front and the side (sometimes both sides if I have good pics of them), and then just try to match the colors with the background in the photo shop. It takes the most time, but I use shadows/highlights, brightness/contrast and hue/saturation/lightness for whichever part of the texture seems to be too light/dark/colored. When copying layers, I always refine the edges. Then I use spot healing brush tool to fix any inaccuracies between two layers, and mostly clone stamp tool to get the hair right. Adding sharpness or reducing the noise also helps in some cases.

I think the spot healing tool is your biggest friend in the process. Just save the texture as a PNG once you want to know what it looks like, load it in Blender and see what else needs fixing. It's what I always do and what takes up the most time usually.
