A Comprehensive Guide to the Creation Process of
3D Character Modeling
  • If Environments are the backbone of the game,
    then Characters are the heart. Any game is
    incomplete and disastrous without proper
    character development and arc. Users identify
    themselves with the characters while playing the
    game and engage more with the gameplay because of
    them. Characters portraying real-life emotions
    garnered sympathy amongst users leading to mass
    attraction of the audience towards the game
    because of the creation of emotional attachment.
  • Hence, it is pivotal to pay meticulous attention
    to detail to create 3D Game Characters. We will
    walk you through the basics and simplified
    process of creating 3D Characters for games.
    Also, we will guide you on how to make this
    process plain sailing with a 3D Modeling Company
    working with you to develop 3D Modeling
    Characters. Visit our website to learn more.

How does 3D Character Modeling work in Game
  • 3D Character Modeling is a manifold process where
    a 3D Artist applies different tools software to
    create game characters. A character can be a
    person, animal, mythical creature, robot, or
    devil. Also, a character can be the main
    (primary) protagonist/antagonist a player
    controls during gameplay. And secondary
    characters who act as supporting or have an
    individual impact on the game with which the
    player interacts.
  • The 3D Character creation process begins with
    creating a primitive form of characters. E.g., 3D
    Artists can make a cube or square shape, modify
    it using different tools software, and further
    develop (edit) it in other programs to give the
    3D Model a visioned form.

How to decide on 3D Game Character styles?
  • Generally, 3D Character Artists create 3D human
    models for primary secondary characters. And
    characters styles are ascertained based on the
    setting goals of the game. However, there is no
    clear definition of it, but we highlight it in
    five salient playable character styles
    cartoonish, life-like, creative, blocky, and
  • E.g., a cartoonish style signifies drawn
    characters similar to cartoons a creative style
    implies quirky character designs such as an alien
    with a human topology or a combination of human
    and animal (mythological creature).

Step-by-Step Process for Creation of 3D Modeling
  • The initial planning phase of any project is
    integral, and it is crucial to get conversant
    with 3D Character Modeling Workflow to ensure the
    entire process is carried out smoothly and meets
    the games vision concept. The following is a
    beginner-friendly 3D Character Model creation

3D Character Concept
Before starting character creation, you must
comprehend their story and connection with other
characters, environments, and game plots. And
accordingly, visualize the character. We
recommend gathering as many references as
possible to understand how you will create it.
Also, please pay attention to the detail of their
background to make a perfectly unique character.
3D Character Blocking
  • You can commence 3D Model creation by combining
    primitive shapes into the desired form of your
    character. E.g., you can use numerous cubical
    cylindrical shapes and connect them as different
    elements of your character model. It will give a
    concise idea of how your character will appear.

3D Character Sculpting
You will have a smooth model without
characteristics, features, and traits during
sculpting. A 3D Artist creates them through a
sculpting process, like clay modeling. E.g., A
Sphere is used for the characters eyes and
making chin cheekbones a long cylinder is used
for making a finger.
Creation of 3D Character Topology
  • A game character topology is the surface
    structure to ascertain 3D Character model visual
    characteristics. E.g., it is employed to make
    minute details, such as mouth, nose, eyes, and
    hair. The correct topology is needed to animate
    individual parts of the 3D model.
  • Customarily 3D model topology is created using
    Polygonal Modeling. As Polygons have numerous
    corners, it is crucial to select a shape allowing
    effortless editing animating of individual
    character parts.

3D Character Model Rigging Skinning
Rigging is the creation of a character skeleton,
which is essential to animate the skeleton/bones
individually in the future, thereby making a 3D
human model move. Usually, software used to model
characters other game assets has ready-made
skeleton samples. Post Rigging process comes
with Skinning, which involves the creation of
Bipedal characters to secure the skeleton model
surface. At this stage, the skeleton becomes the
characters part and can move.
3D Character Rendering
  • In this process, the 3D Game Artist designs a
    scene for a 3D model via computer graphics
    converts it into a 2D image. 3D Artists fine-tune
    image lighting, frame texture, and camera
    direction. The images are primarily used for
    promotional (advertising) purposes).

3D Character Model Animation
It is the most critical step in 3D Character
creation, as 3D Character Artists animate
characters body movements and make facial
expressions to give life to characters. At
Polymator, we use advanced tools technologies
to manipulate individual body parts and while
working on facial expressions, movements, and
  • After reading this, you would have fully
    comprehended how 3D Character Modeling work in
    the Game Development process, how to decide on 3D
    Character styles, and the step-by-step process of
    creating 3D modeling character.
  • By following all the tips points we mentioned
    in the blog, you can create fascinating and
    visually appealing 3D Gaming Characters to
    connect users deeply with your gaming characters.
