Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Using 3Ds Max or Maya for character modelling is not a bad idea. Textures can be easily available in google images or other websites until and unless you are very choosy about how a surface looks. If you will use blender as recommended by tetsumi96 it is not a bad idea. Here is alink of how character modelling is done. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0QT1GNMevfc

It gives you a basic idea of how to create characters using blender.

For the game environment use: Unreal Engine 4.12

For making the 3d characters use: Adobe Fuse (Preview) OR Blender (More advanced users)

For textures: search google for premade (royalty free and public domain) OR make your own using Adobe Photoshop

For animations: Use Adobe Fuse (Preview) with Minamo. It's great.

You can get a $19.99 per month plan from Adobe to be able to use ALL their products IF you are a student.
