I'll then turn this 3D printed body into a doll. Does anyone have 3D model of a woman with normal body proportions? Would you rather use a plain-looking woman or a stylised busty-assy one, which the whole cg-industry has an undisputed set standard? If you make a normal-looking person, people will frown and say it looks "wrong".
So first you should define which is normal proportions. A normal woman is not tall, and will have less than 7 heads height.
Most cg-characters are 10 heads high. Then most women don't have ideal bodies, so the average is not a photomodel you see anywhere in games etc. Daz Studio is free and the models are reasonable. Better than Makeuman, no doubt.
Daz was the first thing that came to mind to avoid when I read this thread. Great models though they may be, and sure you can dial up the fat, they tend to have very long legs, their hips are positioned too high and their shoulders are too broad. Perhaps a few models and actors in this world have such proportions, but the majority of normal people do not. Some of the Poser figures have low positioned hips, shorter legs and arms, and while many people may not like them, because they don't don't make for good half nude, barbarian, cover art pictures, they look a lot more like real people on the street.
In light of this post, your previous recommendation to use Poser seems very odd, as the figures most-used by Poser users are made by DAZ.
I can personally testify that there are many glaring anatomy issues as can the enormous amount of deformers I use to correct such errors in my own images. If, conversely, you are recommending that one use the figures that ship with recent versions of Poser, then you are even more mistaken, as these make DAZ look like Frank Netter.
Unless you are being sarcastic ;- teruchan 04 April , Unless you are being sarcastic ;- I am talking about the figures that ship with Poser 6, 7 and 8. I haven't really seen the latest figures. If you consider what kind of art most Poser users are doing, as I already stated, "many people may not like them, because they don't don't make for good half nude, barbarian, cover art pictures," it makes sense that most people use Daz models, which are better suited for this purpose.
If you want to make average, flabby Joe, though, the Poser models are much better. Sure, they are astoundingly ugly from the default, but with a few flicks of the dials they can make for far better looking, natural, real world people than the Daz models. I think there is. That's how we get BMI and what not. Models are of course above normals.
I don't know why OP is asking for normal 3d models? These are where using above normals can get a flak, because you might get accused of 'leading'. Here I again agree with Teruchan. I still remember the office guy model that came with Poser that usually supplied on 3d books cd-rom.
Of course there is. Yes, avoid Makehuman at all costs, the anatomy on their human model is Horrible, with a big H. And this is a pretty normal body type for a woman, which most people will call "ugly". Well, I guess unlike "most people" you talk of I must have very, very low standards, because I would call that "attractive". And there are almost as many different "norms" as there are anatomical researchers, some are just more popular than others.
In the Renaissance artists started to really explore anatomy unlike ever before in art. Obviously, as someone pointed out, also stylizing and idealizing in most final pieces.
Models are a hires mess, though. For an average 20 y. Hmm, maybe you're right, it's just for 3d it would've been still considered "wrong".
The canon is the idealized standard, and the norm is the average. If you take women and average them of the same age , you'll get a pretty good-looking person. It will be different for different races and even locations, based on antropogenesis.
This website may fill your needs: Of course there are variations and the model showed she has a bit more "strong" legs, but she is all proportioned to her Hips and Torso. This is the average looking women in our beaches. Northern and Eastern Europe women Russians, Swedish, British, etc are usually taller and slimmer, maybe that's why you don't find this type of proportions attractive or find them "ugly".
I said quite the opposite. I said cg-standard is a whole different story than real life. This example is a realistic and a normal-looking, may be even on a good-looking side, one. But for most modeling jobs you'd get comments it's too fat, too short, too ugly. Ah, I see where you're coming from, but you didn't make that clear in your original post.
The model is an attractive, average looking, realistic female but lacks the exaggerated, stereotypical anatomy which year-old boys came to expect from their female game heroines. I doubt even they would call her ugly, though. But anyway, enough OT for one day. JeroenDStout 04 April , When ordering models it is surprisingly difficult to get normal-looking proportions, mind, because of the occupational deformation of artists expecting you to want people who do not look like people: Though I must ponder that 'people will say, though I disagree' is enforcing stereotypes a little; there are plenty of people who will agree that realistic or at least, every-day proportions are absolutely fine.
There is not really a 'people' who says she is anything unless you suggest there is. And if someone actually were to think this model is 'ugly' I am not even certain they know what a woman is.
Ugly is a terribly strong word to use in this situation. Of course Nick asked for statically average proportions, which are objective, not subjective! Aww come on, Marco, we have better bods than that over here, LOL. Portuguese women are very elegant.
It's the main export in Ukraine Here's why I want the average proportions: I'm making a Barbie doll with normal body proportions. So, it looks like I'll be using this model for the normal body proportions: I also want a 3D model of a Barbie so that we can print that out to to use as a reference.
If someone here feels they can take on this project, please message me. We can arrange some kind of payment. My recent work has appeared on many big sites such as Mashable, HuffPost, etc, and I expect this project to be picked up as well. Here's one of my recent projects which was also on the front page of Yahoo! Wishing you all the best with that! Im sure the kids would really dig it up. Sil3 04 April , I don't think theres anything wrong with that "body" to be honest, quite the contrary and if by elegant you say "bag's of bones" like majority of Top Models Portuguese women are actually shorter compared to the other European women, in fact theres a Portuguese saying that the Portuguese woman is wanted short like the sardines sardines are considered a delicacy in Portugal but not all Portuguese woman are 1.
Pyke 04 April , Ive always found it such a double standard that its ok to call models and skinny girls 'tooth picks', and other various derogatory names, but if you comment on someone thats overweight its suddenly insulting and taboo.
I dated a girl who was naturally skinny, and the shit that she put up with, and sly side comments that she received sometimes was maddening. Bigotry works both ways people. As for Daz bodies, they seem better suited to models like the Victoria's Secret ad. It might be said that, yes, you can alter proportions on them, lower the hips and give them shorter legs, etc. Trust me I know the feeling I was very skinny in my early teen years Now on contrary I have some over weight lol They put those white bra on, and put them too closely, so they look more heavy than in reality.
I wonder why they did so, definitely on purpose. I guess their message is "real people are ugly, buy our products to strive for our ideal, which you can never achieve, ugly you! They have white bras because it is a beauty products, not lingerie, advertisement.
It also makes the Dove have more emphasis on the women and not what they're wearing. What is beautiful is very subjective just go back in history and see and that's the whole point.
But thanks for showing your prejudice for everyone to see ; Sil3 04 April , But thanks for showing your prejudice for everyone to see ; I thought it was one ad with juxtaposition. It's two separate ones. If to compare them, the second one of Dove looks emphasizing weight, as putting them closer and wearing white makes them looking bigger.
It's playing on buyer's feelings anyway, just the other way around. They did it on purpose to show weight is nice.
