What makes a good game?

A good game needs a great story. It needs nice overall graphics. Engaging gameplay. 

And it also needs well designed characters!

This course is exactly about that! When you are developing your own game, and you are not a designer, you will find creating a hero for your game challenging! 

During the course we learn

  • the theory of character design

  • what makes a good character

  • my 6 step character design method

  • to create a character sheet

  • to prepare our characters for animation

  • to animate our characters 

And we will do all this in Inkscape, this epic free software! It is a very versatile vector tool, which makes designing characters much more easier and faster!

Apart of the above, I will share character blueprints with you! These are showing how I design a character with Inkscape from scratch. We practice different skills with each character. We create character sheet from one, and basic animation from the other.

The characters we will create:

  • a simple and cute robot character - great for kids

  • a black ninja warrior - simple and smooth

  • a heavy rpg warrior - a real tank!

  • a  fantasy skeleton warrior - cute but deadly

  • NEW! a warrior girl - ready to fight!

Your task will be to practice and create character sheet and basic animation for all the characters, or your very own game hero/enemy!

I will also share tips and tricks in the course. In these short lessons I usually want to help you to work faster and create better designed figures.

Mind that this is only the first version of the course! I will add several new character blueprints - and listen to the need of my students - and I will keep the course updated.

I don't want to talk about myself. If you want to know me better, read my instructor bio. But I can tell you one thing: I am here to teach. When you ask me, I will help and will find a solution to your problem the best I can!

Complete Rigging Course: Moho & Anime Studio

==========================================================

Stop wasting time trying to figure this stuff out ON YOUR OWN!!!

I have been there and done that. You want to know how long it took me? 3 Years.

Learn how rigging and binding works in 1-2 hours. That's it. Trust me.
The rest is practice and application.

I have broken down the tools, binding and their methods, and how to rig as clearly as I possibly could. In fact, my wife, who has no experience in Moho what so ever, was my first student. She was able to understand perfectly clear everything that I was teaching. If she didn't, I would go back and re record the whole lecture. 

See what my students say: 

  • "Now my headaches are gone! Thanks. It is easy to follow because it is clear as water." 
  • "This is the first course that has allowed me to feel some hope for success in rigging"
  • "I have no experience in Animation and this course is been helping me so much, Thank you!"

Take what you learn, apply it, and start doing what you really want to do, ANIMATION

========================

What is this course about?

========================

This course is for those who have created a character in Anime Studio/ Moho or any other drawing software and want to take it to the next level by rigging it. Take your character design and give it a professional rig using the techniques and tools taught here.

Rigging for those who do not understand the tools and how to use them in Anime Studio/Moho can be a struggle. If you however do have some knowledge of rigging we will take you to the next level and teach you all you can to unlock the potential of your rig. Anime Studio/ Moho makes it as easy as humanly possible to rig your character. The rigging tools are simple and unlike anything else out there. Once you master their tools, it's a matter of playing it smart and tweaking a couple things here and there to give yourself a ready to animate rig. IT IS THAT SIMPLE.

=======================

What material is included?

=======================

This course like my others is a no fluff, straight to the core, course. In it I dive right in to actually using the tools Anime Studio/Moho offers to rig our characters. Each character I rig is free for you to use and already included in Moho 12. This course will cover everything from Anime Studio 9.5 to Moho 12. 

=======================

Why take this course?

=======================

In this course I will walk you through step-by-step how to rig and organize a character ready for animation. These lectures are gold for those who have had trouble in the past with their 2D rig but even more so as we continue to update, these lectures will give you the experience in character rigging you have been missing!

=======================

Is this course right for me?

=======================

This course might not be right for you if you are already a well equipped Animator with a full knowledge of rigging. But even if you are comfortable at rigging you can still learn how we make ready to animate characters that utilize Anime Studio/ Moho to its full extent.

I hope you will join us in the ever increasing world of character rigging!

Web pages are built with HTML, but styled with CSS. As with any other coding language, CSS has a learning curve that puts off many beginners. This CSS for beginners course aims to change all that and make learning CSS fun. As you work through the tutorials, you can try out the examples, or try your own CSS and see the live preview of your code immediately to check if you got it right.

CSS for Beginners starts with an introduction to CSS where you can get your feet wet by creating your own uniquely styled Google's homepage.

After learning a few key phrases you'll move on to look at the three ways you can implement CSS into your web pages.

You'll look at color, including web safe colors, and the different ways you can add color to your web pages.

We'll look at how you can style any HTML element, from headers to lists using base selectors, before looking at the design power offered by Classes and IDs to really put your CSS designs into overdrive.

With a great working knowledge of the main concepts in CSS, we'll cover the Box Model of CSS, which is a great source of confusion for many CSS beginners. Using a simple diagram as reference, you can roll up your sleeves and explore the Box Model with a simple CSS coding session. Not only can you follow along in real-time using the same free tool that I do, you can also experiment and have fun as you learn.

If you are a beginner to CSS or struggled with the learning curve in the past, then CSS for Beginners is the course for you, and offers you a fun way to learn CSS, using free tools.

Abraham Leal is the Director and Founder of Critical Hit Studio & Academy. With the studio and academy, he is proud to be able to spread his artistic knowledge to everyone in his hometown and is extremely excited to be working on big entertainment projects in Mexico.  What inspired Abraham to be a 3D artist is The Hobbit book and all the lore that surrounds it. Being able to tell stories and share his own voice is what motivates him to create and imagine new and exciting characters. Prior to becoming a 3D artist, he was going to medical school and he decided to do a complete 180 and get into Digital Design and Entertainment Production. When he quit medical school, he couldn't draw, paint, or sculpt to save his life but he was so convinced of his definite desire and worked hard to turn it into a reality. His advice to artists who want to get into the 3D industry is to practice properly, be patient and stay humble. He believes in always having a goal in mind, and always open to learning and improving.

We will go deep into the creation of the high poly, low poly, retopologizing, UV mapping, texturing, material setup, rendering, lights, post-production, and at the end putting the character into a game engine to make sure everything is working properly.

Whether you're new to 3D or just looking for a fun project in Blender, modeling acoustic guitars is always enjoyable and presents a lot of great hard surface modeling challenges and opportunities to learn.

In this course I'll be taking you through the entire creation process, start to finish. You'll learn the whole workflow for creating a detailed 3D model, starting from setting up background images to use as references. Then we'll create each part of the model step by step, using smart workflows to achieve good topology and perfect shapes. You'll also learn how to use many different "modifiers" in Blender that help speed up your workflow and make modeling much more efficient and effective.

The narration for these videos is real-time so I'll be talking to you as I'm guiding you through every step, and I'll be explaining why I'm doing everything I'm doing so that you gain a deeper understanding of the entire process. There is also a hotkey display at the bottom of the videos, and I say the hotkeys as I'm using them as well, so you'll always know what I'm doing as I take you through the steps at a steady pace.

If you have any questions about the course along the way, or even if you just want to share your progress, there's a Q&A section beneath every lecture. I hope you enjoy the course!

Join over 1400 students in this action packed video course on car design sketching using Adobe Photoshop and a Wacom tablet.

Are you just starting out with sketching cars in Photoshop? Or are you an automotive design or industrial design student or professional? This course will help you improve your sketching skills which is of great value when building a professional portfolio. I'll walk you through each step of the design sketching process from initial line work to the final render and give you an insight to how it's done in the design industry. 

The course is divided into 4 lectures. 

In lecture 1 we go over two different techniques on how to get the proportions of the car down. The reason for this is because without correct proportions from the start, it might end up looking like a toy car. 

In lecture 2 we'll make the car come alive by rendering and sculpting the design. I'll walk you through the basic tools and brushes used for this. 

Lecture 3 is about adding the details such as parting lines for the door, import wheels from a picture and refine the reflections and highlights. 

In the final lecture 4 we'll add color to the design and I'll show you the difference between using a couple of layer modes to get the result that you want. You will also learn a trick to make the final image really stand out and feel crisp and sharp. 

As a bonus lecture you'll get 

  1, The brush set that I use for Photoshop 

  2, The original .psd file so you can open it up on your computer and see the layer structure and what goes in every layer. 

  3, Two additional lectures on how to sketch a car from an upper side POV. This is important to learn and used often, especially for automotive design students. 

Bonus lecture 2 

Downloadable this .pdf with a step by step walk through on the techniques used to sketch a car in side view using markers and pens.
