This has been requested enought times, so here I go, finally. This project is loads of fun to work on and really time consuming too. I hope you’ll like it as much as I do.
You can also watch it in HD at vimeo.
Tutorial Details (in short)
Covers a bit on character design, then goes deep to modeling a character for animation, uv-mapping, sculpting, texturing and finally quick posing and to a promotional render. On the way I tell you why I do things the way I do. Tutorial video duration will most likely be 10+ hours. The base head & eye-modeling alone is around 1 hour 40 minutes.
Luxology Modo (for 3d) and Adobe Photoshop (2d). However no part of the tutorial needs just those two softwares – you can use any similiar software to get the job done. I will list 3D-tools used(such as bevel) in the tutorial details, so you can see what your software can do and what, if any, you need to employ another software for. And instead of Photoshop you can use any capable bitmap painting/editing software.
Aimed for / Level of difficulty
Anyone who knows how to operate a 3D-software. I’m not explaining very basics – software manual and generic tutorials can tell you that. However I do go over what tools we will use and where.
Tutorial will be in HD720P video, quicktime-files, and with a menu to easily access them.
Tutorial will be available from a reputable online vendor as a download or on a dvd.
The price won’t be low but not scary either and the value for money will be high.
Tutorial is planned as the first in a series that goes from design all the way to animated short film production and finish.
That’s it for now. More will come, at least a trailer, before the tutorial releases.

Update: Tutorial is delayed for unknown time -a LONG time- due to other work taking my time. I rather not set a date for release and miss it again. If you want to make sure you don’t miss the release without coming back here to check over and over, subscribe to site RSS feed or Email Updates.
