3D Game Character Creature – Full Complete Pipeline
Abraham Leal is the Director and Founder of Critical Hit Studio & Academy. With the studio and academy, he is proud to be able to spread his artistic knowledge to everyone in his hometown and is extremely excited to be working on big entertainment projects in Mexico. What inspired Abraham to be a 3D artist is The Hobbit book and all the lore that surrounds it. Being able to tell stories and share his own voice is what motivates him to create and imagine new and exciting characters. Prior to becoming a 3D artist, he was going to medical school and he decided to do a complete 180 and get into Digital Design and Entertainment Production. When he quit medical school, he couldn’t draw, paint, or sculpt to save his life but he was so convinced of his definite desire and worked hard to turn it into a reality. His advice to artists who want to get into the 3D industry is to practice properly, be patient and stay humble. He believes in always having a goal in mind, and always open to learning and improving.
Throughout this course, we are going to be focusing on the creation of a video game-ready character. We are going to be bringing in an interesting character to life. We will go through the whole process of character game creation starting from design, proportion, anatomy, and diving in to the entire pipeline until we arrive to a production-ready character. We will go deep into the creation of the high poly, low poly, retopologizing, UV mapping, texturing, material setup, rendering, lights, post-production, and at the end putting the character into a game engine to make sure everything is working properly.
