From Barnes & NobleAre you a serious gamer who's tired of the characters the game company handed you? Are you fascinated by game production, maybe even as a potential career? Today's your lucky day.
Game Character Modeling and Animation with 3DS Max will walk you step-by-step through creating a pro-quality character you can play in many real-time 3D game engines. You'll learn techniques that 3D designers use every day: how to create heads and bodies, apply maps, add skeletons, export and compile models, and more. You'll master a world-class tool, 3ds Max (no small accomplishment). You'll even learn efficient professional workflow.
One thing you won't have to worry about is programming: It's not needed here. But learning 3D animation will take some work. (This book's based on the author's 15-week university class: It's serious instruction.) We think it'll be worth it -- in satisfaction, fun, and just maybe someday, in cash.
