  • FREE 3DS Max Character Modeling Tutorials!

    Introduction to Character Modeling in 3ds Max 2010

    These series of tutorials will be a comprehensive look into the development of a character from start to finish. I'll be covering modeling, UVs, texturing, shaders, sculpting in Mudbox, displacement mapping, rigging, animation and rendering as well as using the high fidelity assets to generate in-game models which will be imported into Unity 3D and the Unreal Development Kit.

    I'll be offering these tutorials in weekly installments over a period of a few months.



    Part 1 - Setup
    In this tutorial, I'll be covering intial scene setup for
    reference photography and concept art.



    Part 2 - The Eye
    In this tutorial, I'll be covering how to model using strip modeling techniques.
    I'll also build an eyeball, texture it and build the eye socket.

    Go to http://www.2ndchancegames.com and click on tutorials to view!

    The tutorials will be free until the series is complete. Once complete they will no longer be free but will be available for purchase as a complete compilation.

    ENJOY!

        Part 3 - Modeling the nose and mouth

        I will have part 3 up by Friday.

        I am looking to post a part every week for the next several months. In total it will probably be over 20 hours of tutorials.

              I'll try my best to release weekly updates. I'm making it for my own UDK game and I figured it might be cool to document the process for others.

                This is really good stuff, thanks for sharing! I'm looking forward to how you do the rigging especially.. It's always been so tough to get descent results.
