In collaboration with CGCircuit, a new site that allows you to monetize your own instructional content, I just released the first two videos in my four part series about 3d Character Art.
You can find the videos here:
VOLUME 1: Introduction & High Res Modeling Theory - ~1.5 hours - FREE
VOLUME 2: High Res Modeling Application - ~2 hours - $6.99
VOLUME 3: Modeling for Games (Retopo, UV, Baking) - COMING SOON!
VOLUME 4: Texturing and Model Presentation - COMING SOON!
My intention is to create instructional content for the aspiring character artist who already knows the basics, but still struggles with getting professional results. My hope is to elaborate more on the artistic side of character art rather than showing technical tricks (although there will be some of that as well).
I’ve spent a lot of time putting these videos together myself, and the last two are in the works. I have also really tried to keep these affordable for students. Please help spread the word and share this with anyone you think might be interested. I’ll update this thread once the new videos are released. Thanks, and I hope you all like it!
By the way, my Hella model is used as an example in the videos, but the series is NOT about how to build that exact character! If you prefer, the first volume is also available on my YouTube channel with the caveat that it’s not split into convenient chapters like it is on the CGCircuit site. I will only be posting the first volume on YouTube so please visit CGCircuit for the others!
If you have any feedback on what you’d like to see covered in future videos please let me know! Also, if you have any badly retopo’ed or badly textured models that I can use as examples, and you don’t mind it being critiqued publicly, I’d love to use them! Just PM me.
And finally, a special thanks to everyone who helped me review the content along the way: Donald Phan, Troy Nickel, Niles Doubleday, Curt Binder, Saman Mahmoudi, Mike Ulloa, Chris Whitaker, Patrick Morrison, Katia Bourykina, Corinne Scrivens, and probably some other people I’m forgetting right now.
