Steps to Creating a Video Game Character
1. Draw out concept ideas. These are usually quick pencil sketches with color study.

2. Once you create a design you and/or your employers are happy with, Create a Final Concept Drawing. Full color and attention to detail are required in this drawing, unlike the Concept Ideas.
3. Now that you have created a Final Design for your character, you can make a simple 3D Model. This will only be the base for your character. To shape the form, you use polygons, which are triangles or other geometric shapes.
4. Once you have created your base, add Texture.
5. Your job is done! Programmers will now take your model and make it move.
