Are you excited to witness the creation of a real 3D character for a game? You can experience the entire workflow process of creating a 3D character for a game in Blender in real-time with constant narration by Niko, the grandfather of all 3D character knowledge, who shares his life stories and super wise thoughts. This free course is available on Niko's YouTube channel and covers everything from high poly sculpting, hard surface modeling, retopology, UV mapping to baking, and texturing in Substance painter. As a bonus, the course also covers Substance painter texturing, basic rigging, posing, and rendering in Blender.

My name is Niko, and I am a 3D character artist with over 15 years of experience in the game industry. I have created several courses focused on 3D character creation and anatomy. This course was created with the permission of Gameloft, and the character we will be creating is for the game Heroes of the Dark, available on Windows, Apple Store, and Android.

The course covers the entire process of creating a character from the idea to the finished product in the game. Niko starts with modeling the head and moves on to the basics of the body, including arms and legs. He then focuses on clothes and accessories, making a chain, and detailing the clothes. The course includes feedback from the lead artist and covers the long-awaited process of retopology, followed by UV unwrapping and exporting the low and high poly.

The course then covers how to import the low and high poly in Substance painter, bake the needed maps, fix errors, and assemble the character low poly. Niko also covers extra texturing work in Substance painter, exporting textures for Blender, simple rigging, posing, and rendering.

The course is for intermediate Blender users and assumes some basic knowledge of the program. If you are a beginner, you can check out Niko's Absolute beginners 3D character in Blender course. The course is free on Niko's YouTube channel, and there is a playlist with all the videos. However, if you want to show your support for Niko, you can purchase the course.
