Yes. Yes we do. Not everyone is into modelling human heads, humanoids, rigging etc. Not everyone considers themselves artists, we just have a job to get done. Although valuable skills to have for sure, I (for one) just don’t have the time or energy to pursue this. What I do at work sometimes requires rendering (interior spaces, but not your typical achiviz quality stuff), and it would be nice to add in a human mesh (preferably clothed) as it is a very good scale reference. Human looking, pbr ready materials, poseable with basic hair and clothes would be much preferred of course.
As for newbies, we can tell them to “add the human, how does the scale look”. Completely messed up scales are a source of many questions. And if they want to have a go at modelling, they can have a look at proportions, topology, and edge flow from something that is actually good looking by someone who knows what they’re doing. Last time I searched, I could only find either sexy near nude teen girls or stylish characters - why would I want that in something a customer will see (even if not the focus, could unintentionally become one :D). Ended up using freebies from Renderpeople (not to scale, and may have broken rigs - and we’ve seen these from rendered images from customers as well so I’m not alone :D), or even just some people silhouettes.
work that looks alike
Who cares? Why do you care what my work look like, its shown to customers only, not even on these forums.
