The 2nd edition of Andy Gahan‘s 3ds Max Modeling for Games, covering the latest version of 3ds Max is here. This book features the realistic style of art that the 1st edition covered, with six completely new chapters for the new version of the software. These newly added sections including: an Intro to 3ds Max, a new normal maps tutorial, expanded portfolio section, LOD’s, a brand new environment and much more – as well as updates throughout covering latest version of Max.
The gallery will consist of a mix of inspirational concept art, and orthographics for the reader to build various models from. The book comes to us directly from successful game artists within commercial game development circles (Gahan + contributors) and consists of tutorials that start with simpler models and gradually move up to more complex builds. The strength of this book is that it teaches all of the important game modeling elements: character & environment modeling, mapping, texturing, basic animating of credible game characters and levels – using latest version of 3ds Max. As readers move from tutorial to tutorial, they build their own portfolio of high quality work.
There’s a new trend towards sylized, comic-style art, with the latest wave of 3D movies (a la Pixar ). Max users can do this kind of thing, and they want to learn how. Andy Gahan is building on the success of his Focal book, 3ds Max Modeling for Games (which covers realistic style art) with this new VOLUME II, covering stylized comic-style art.
