| Hi i was wandering if you could please tell me a program good for making the character designs in also can you please tell me how to draw a human figure in front, side, and back view.|
| Get a good anatomy book. This'll give you a start though :|
| picture on its way to you|
| A tip! Might be useless(?) When creating your 3d model try to envissage what it will look like when textured - spending hours getting every contour correct mightn't be need (especially when modeling the head if your textures give the illusion of roundness ect...) |
I'd advise seeing how other models for games have been constructed before going full steam in to creating your own - you might save yourself a lot of work.
| Truely true! :) study the Work of the Professionals. They know how to make cool looking Chars with a hand full of Triangles. Especially the older games! Todays Games use up to 4000 Tris for one Character, so you will not learn a lot about LowPoly Tricks. But take some Quake 2 Characters or HL1 Stuff. And know your tools. You need to have full control over your Faces, Edges and Vertices! |
| make the profile, the half left simmetry part of your character, then copy it and mirror it, and joint the 2 part, here yu have your human model, so they works (the professionals) |
