In this course you will learn how to make and animate 3d pixel characters just like in the MineCraft game.
This course is meant for non-artists. Did you know you don't have to be an artist to be able to make great 3d characters? I've got a secret weapon to show you. you will be able to animate your characters in no time and get animations just like in professional games
You will learn how to use free tools to make amazing characters such as the Spiderman, Ironman and Wonder-Woman, Superman*.
You will also learn how to animate them in no time.
Then you will learn how to add all these characters in the game engine called Unity 3d to make amazing 3d games, just like MineCraft.
Now, this course is meant to make things super easy for you. All the steps are shown to you in the video lectures, so you cant possibly miss a step.
And by the way as a bonus, this course includes free downloads of all the finished 3D characters, with their animations, and all the Unity projects as well.
The skills you will learn in this course can be applied to so many projects. Invest in yourself by joining this course now
Important: all software used are FREE to download and use on PC and MAC computers (no need to pay, cheers!)
What is 3D Pixel Art?
3D Pixel art is a form of digital art, created through the use of 2D-like raster graphics software, where images are edited on the pixel level in the form of blocks. Graphics in most old (or relatively limited) computer, console, graphing calculator and mobile phone video games are mostly 2D pixel art, and now we use the new technologies t have the retro-cool style with the amazing functionality that 3d technology provides.
Note: This course is great to take as a combination with the 3D Pixel art - Crossy Road modeling course.
* For educational purpose only
Note: This is the second course in a series to enable you to make amazing mobile games on your own. If you want to make progress, it is recommended to also take my other course on how to make 3D pixel characters and objects like in the Crossy Road or MineCraft games and how to use them un Unity 3D game engine.
Then it is recommended to follow with the course on how to design, build, program and publish a Crossy Road like game to the app stores using Unity 3D.
By taking these courses, you will have a solid set of skills to get you to create professional games and can either become a solo entrepreneur or get hired by AAA game studios.
In this lecture, you will get to know who your instructor is, and get a little overview of the course:
The first part of the course consists of getting your environment up and running (PC or MAC) by teaching you which tools we will be using, how to get them and how to get them.
The second part of the course consists of helping you get starting by teaching the basics of the 3D pixel character modeling software.
The third part of the course, you will get to learn the techniques to create amazing 3d characters.
Then you will learn how to animate them just like in professional studios
And finally, the last part of the course, you will learn how to integrate your 3D models into the game engine named Unity 3D to make amazing games, how to make the characters interact with the environment and with other characters.
