The main difference between 2D and 3D game characters is that the last ones are three-dimensional. Unlike two-dimensional sketches, they must be thought out from all sides and angles. Also, you need to concisely fit characters into digital reality. In 2D games, artists need to work out only one angle. And 3D designers have to take into account dozens of variables.
3D designers create characters in special programs. Working with such software requires skill. Volume models are more complicated than regular 2D sketches. However, in the process of creating three-dimensional characters, ordinary concepts are also included. The creation of 3D graphics is a complex process that requires a team of professionals. The whole process goes through several stages, and it’s significant to save the general idea from the start to the final result.
3D characters are used not only in games but also in other areas. For example, you can create a 3D digital character to promote a brand.
Even though all the characters are unique, each of them goes through the same stages. The most significant part is sculpting and modeling. For the finished object to function correctly, we are giving it a mathematical three-dimensional representation. It allows us to understand the location of the character itself and individual geometric elements in space.
Next, we create a digital sculpture. To create a detailed object with lots of detail, we use high-poly organic modeling. However, for real-time optimization, which is so important for games, models are often used in low-poly versions as well. They are easily animated and do not overload the game.
After we have created a 3D model, we unfold the mesh to a plane and work on the details and textures. As a result of this multi-stage work, we get a 3D character suitable for volumetric spaces.
Creating three-dimensional characters is a complex process. In addition to the steps described above, there are many more stages that require specialists of a certain profile. Outsource 3d modeling is a great idea because you don’t have to look for employees and assemble a team yourself. You can contact iLogos and immediately get a well-coordinated team, which includes an art director, designers and other specialists.
This solution is perfect for companies that do not have their own 3D design department, or those who want to offload their team. This will help allocate resources and make the process of creating a game more efficient. By delegating character design to iLogos professionals, you can save time and focus on other important tasks.
