In this 3ds Max tutorial, we will talk about some of the specific challenges facing artists as they build characters, using a simple character as a guide. You'll learn concepts like facial topology, working from reference, and keeping a clean scene. We'll also cover common modeling techniques from polygon box modeling, to edge modeling, to working with Splines. By the end of watching this training, you'll have the knowledge and experience you need to begin creating your own custom CG characters. Software required: 3ds Max 2013.
Joshua is a devoted games author at Pluralsight. For years Joshua was a key author behind Digital-Tutors' (now a Pluralsight company) popular game engine training. As a kid, he had a passion for playing video games, which eventually developed into a fascination with the process of game creation. The question of "How'd they do that?" led Joshua on a quest to learn to make these games himself. Ever since then, Joshua has devoted his life to creating games, as well as teaching others to build their own fantastic video games.
