Can someone help me with a problem I have... I need someway to figure out how to make a 3D model that actually looks like a character for my game... I can do just about anything, but a character... So please help me...

steal one and change the textures, then move parts of the mesh slightly?

No thanks, I don't do that stuff... Ok?

If you draw me a concept, I'd be willing to give it a try for kicks. =) I need the learning.

I just need some type of a robot from space that would do good in a game like halo or something...

Simple enough, drawing a concept.
You may think it mad, but there is a reason for having people draw on a piece of paper of what your character looks like. From there, you can work out which parts of the character you are going to make with which strategy, spline, primitive, metaballs, etc. In your other thread, people believed you meant a concept drawing - which is why Justin gave you that pic.
I recommend having your main robot as Mr Cube, which can have advanced things such as UV mapping for eyes! It would rock!
And anyways, how are you making this game? It seems that you have little experience here, from your posts (no insult or anything, but it just shines through ), are you coding it yourself or are you using a game engine? How far are you in the process of development? Have you done this type of thing before? Do you like waffles/cookies?

I meant like use free models that your allowed to use and modify, like clipart but 3D.

I'm having my bigger bro help me, and no, this is our first game, and yes I've programmed games before, but not like this... Ok? And I like waffles... LOL!!!
And as for you unkown, I thought you meant take one from a different game or something... lol

Im eating waffles right now.
3D modeling - Buzzboy_109 - Jul 27, 2005 04:23 PM
LOL, what kind? eago waffles?

man, I could really go for some waffles right now. I'll pay shipping if someone wants to overnight them to me =)

Waffles rock. They called me the "waffle king" in kindergarten.
If you work through some tutorials, your 3d-app skills should improve with time. Rome wasn't built in a day. Just don't head for the difficult stuff right away. Try making the easy/boring stuff first, and you'll slowly improve..

k, I don't know all your names, but I guesse I don't really need to know...

Wow! I was eating waffles at the same time as this! O.O

Don't you people know?
Waffles are people! They're People!
