Retopologizing a High-Resolution Sculpt for Games in 3D-Coat

During this tutorial, we will build a game-res mesh from a high-res sculpt. We will then transfer the high-res detail so our game model looks as close as possible to our high-res character. We will start by retopologizing our character in 3D-Coat, then we will create UVs in 3D-Coat. Next, we will transfer all of the maps using TopoGun. Finally, we will view our final result in Marmoset Toolbag.
