Project Description

Low-Poly Game Character

ASSIGNMENT

First you’ll be creating your art in Photoshop at a very small scale. Then you’ll bring those images into After Effects and build a rig for your character. Finally, we’ll export a pose and add some extra detail in photoshop.

Extra Credit: Try making a scene with extra characters by duplicating your rig and swapping out the images.

DELIVERABLES

Upload a still image of your character in a scene.

RESOURCES

Image dimensions - This image shows all the different parts of the rig, what they look like, their dimensions and their file names.
