In this series of tutorials we discuss techniques for creating game assets using 3ds Max, ZBrush, and Photoshop. We'll start off by learning how to create silhouettes. We'll follow that up by creating a sketch to help develop our idea. Then we'll jump into 3ds Max and discuss some key concepts for creating a base mesh before exporting it into ZBrush. After that, we'll discuss how to create a custom brush in ZBrush to increase our productivity. Then we'll finish up by baking out our texture maps to create a good base texture in Photoshop.
