A complete guide to creating usable, realistic game characters with two powerful tools

Creating viable game characters requires a combination of skills. This book teaches game creators how to create usable, realistic game assets using the power of an open-source 3D application and a free game engine. It presents a step-by-step approach to modeling, texturing, and animating a character using the popular Blender software, with emphasis on low polygon modeling and an eye for using sculpting and textures, and demonstrates how to bring the character into the Unity game engine.

  • Game creation is a popular and productive pursuit for both hobbyists and serious developers; this guide brings together two effective tools to simplify and enhance the process
  • Artists who are familiar with Blender or other 3D software but who lack experience with game development workflow will find this book fills important gaps in their knowledge
  • Provides a complete tutorial on developing a game character, including modeling, UV unwrapping, sculpting, baking displacements, texturing, rigging, animation, and export
  • Emphasizes low polygon modeling for game engines and shows how to bring the finished character into the Unity game engine

Whether you're interested in a new hobby or eager to enter the field of professional game development, this book offers valuable guidance to increase your skills.


Create realistic game characters powered by your imagination
If you're a do-it-yourself game designer, you'll want to take advantage of Blender and Unity to build professional-quality game characters.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Did anyone really read this before it was published? 25. August 2012

I rarely write reviews about books, but this time is an exception.

If you are a new blender artist looking to create a game character, DO NOT expect to learn ANYTHING from this book. It does not give you a nice introduction to modeling, and in many cases I found that my topology was completely messed up, along with the entire portion on "face modeling" yielding undesirable results. "Some" facial smoothing, as stated in the book, resulted into rebuilding the face by going off of a tutorial on youtube to build it quicker and more efficiently.

It would be an insult to call this a beginner book, although it's written in the format of a beginner book. You are introduced to concepts such as texture baking, sculpting, and basic clothes mesh creation, but as I said, very basic, and very very vague.

After each main section, I would have to spend an hour or two on google trying to find out the right way on how to do it because there was simply not enough information about anything.

After the first half of the book the unity scripting started; I saw most of it in Java, and I saw some errors that should've been fixed if this book was really intended as an introduction.

In no way would I call this book good for anything other than a very rigid introduction into game character creation; I spent a good 20 hours trying to follow along only to resort to google searching the results. Even if you need a basic workflow pattern, I do not recommend this book.

1.0 von 5 Sternen no way this could earn more than a star or two. 8. Februar 2013

Hard to follow, and requiring a lot of outside research to complete the tutorials.. hidden steps between steps, disheartening "this-is-what-it-should-look-like" images that can't be recreated through matching the steps. No matter how close you follow, or how much time you spend, this book doesn't get you there.. though it DOES give you some very basic usage tips.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Surprised at a great book with a bad cover! 9. September 2012
Von Spanish Mama Mia - Veröffentlicht auf
OK, if I saw this book at a store, I would have passed it up because of the simplistic graphic on the front. I have 3D programs that I have been trying to figure out how to trouble shoot and have given up on them due to the frustration of not having a fix for quarks on the modeling. I am not a stranger to graphics. I have been illustrating and painting most of my life. I am 46. This book may not be the advanced world renowned Bible for the super superior artists that is working for Pixar, but it is a very informative introduction into Blender and unity. (FREE PROGRAMS for 3D building and animations!!) All in all this book has answered questions for me that I DIDN'T find anywhere else on the web! If we like we can be negative about everything we come across in life and on the web if we don't find absolute perfection to our liking. Or we can get past the cover and find answers we are looking for. I give this book five stars. If I had not opened it to criticise the graphics to enlarge my ego, I would have missed out on a great book. Buy it, and you will learn something new!

I'm learning a lot. It contains everything I need to produce my characters for games and animates them in Unity 3d.
