Pluralsight video course: Creating a character in 3ds Max

Get this free six-hour video course from Pluralsight

Characters are a critical part of any movie or games pipeline and are a really popular area of study for artists. Character creation can be a tricky thing to pick up, and modelling will be your first step before adding flair with posing and textures later on. In this easy-to-follow guide from Joshua, he talks about some of the specific challenges facing artists as they build characters in 3ds Max.

 You’ll learn concepts like facial topology, working from reference, and keeping a clean scene. The course also covers common modelling techniques from polygon box and edge modeling, to working with splines. By the end of this six-hour course, you’ll have the knowledge and experience you need to begin creating your own custom CG characters.
