Making a 3D Game Character Myself

SOMEWHERE OUTSIDE OF EMERYVILLE, CA, 21 May — Legendary game designer Ironyca Lee, wait, scratch that, Legendary metaverse traveler and noob game designer Ironyca Lee is busy ripping off, wait, scratch that, is finding inspiration for modeling studies, in classic contemporary work from Pixar. With so many excited about 3D architecture and animation today, Lee dives into modeling standard 3D Studio Max and does an impressive job rendering her first character.

This is what I’ve been doing in the past month of inactivity here on the blog:

If this guy seems familiar to you, it’s because I tried to recreate Carl Fredricksen from “Up”.

I know this is not stunning work, it’s my first time working with 3ds Max, so I am an amateur. I decided to take a course this semester called “3D Game Art”, it’s a beginner’s course so I figured I should be able to pass it even while being a total noob.

At first I hated it so much. Some classes I would sit with crashing programs and a computer that didn’t want to cooperate. If that wasn’t the problem, then I was – clueless and trying to figure out the modeling program 3ds Max.

    It seems to me that you could upload your “student project” to OSG (or perhaps arguably even SL) and if you’re not selling it but just doing your own academic / testing… that it really should be covered under the same fair use as analogous educational applications.
