Create your own Game Character

Project description: 

Hi! My name is Dan R. Paulsen and I'm Lead Artist at Kerbal Space Program. 

What you will learn:

To create your very own videogame character. We will focus on a simple character that allows you to experience all the production pipeline of an indie videogame artist. So that you can create your own videogames with the characters from your imagination. First we will work through the process of designing your character, we will then model it and create some basic textures, next we will look at the process of creating easy and effective rigs, so that we can move on to animation cycles. 

I will share some tips, tricks and a couple of online resources I've gathered that can help you fasten your creative process.

** I'm still not sure if it's going to be possible to cover all this topics in one single 1hr class, maybe I can focus on a single task and see how the community reacts to the project? What do you think? 

What do you need?

- Basic knowledge of a 3D software

- Basic knowledge of Photoshop, GIMP, or any other image editing tool.

What is the project for the class?

With the help of the community and my own, you will create a single character ready to be imported into the Unity engine, which can also be worked upon in the future so that you can create more animations or even work on further details on your own.
