Hocu - 3D low poly character by kouotsu Hocu - 3D low poly character by kouotsu
I've been working with a client the past few months to help create his game project, and here's the first character model I've created for it, although it's not the main character! She runs a shop in the game.

I really enjoyed creating it and I'm pumped to make more characters and other assets!

She's looking amazing and very inspiring (i'm trying to make my low-poly char right now), but i still can't get over the fact that such little model consists of more than 1000 triangles. It sounds like very much!

This model is absolutely beautiful!

I'm just now getting into 3d modeling, and this has really inspired me to make cute, low-poly characters.

I do have a couple questions though, if you don't mind -

1. How are her eyes/face rigged? Are her expressions all done through decal mapping?
2. Are you on Polycount's forum?

EDIT:

Disregard question 1, saw your answer to an earlier question.

I'm registered on polycount but I don't really enjoy using those old BBS style forums

That's fair enough.

Is this where you'd be most active, then?

Ah, awesome. I'll definitely be following you there, then.

I really dig your work - especially this one. Really captures the vibe of games like Dark Cloud II.

This is a real inspiration for me! Thank you so much for sharing this, it's really a work of art how minimalistic it is. It really looks amazing. I'm referencing your work to try and make a similar style for a game I'm working on :) This wire frame really helped me get my heard around some stuff, so thank you!

As a student, may I get copies of the assets so that I may study technique? 
If that's alright anyway.

is that mapping for the face? and if doing animation, can we make face expression by swapping map skin?

kouotsu Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Yes it's just textures, sure you can swap them for animating.

I really love this. How do you get the colors to show up so flat and smooth? Did you put the character in an engine first to get the pictures of the final textured character here?

kouotsu Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Nope it's default 3D rendering with flat lighting

I'd love to know how you get her articulations to work with just one loop on them, I usuallly need at least 2 of them.

kouotsu Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
it splits into 2 loops in the back at her elbow which helps. but the bending is definitely not perfect

the face is a separate texture, just animating the texture

anyway, how to make facial gesture in low poly, such as blinking eyes, or smilling?

You can either create multiple textures with each expression and animate the texture, or make the eyes and mouth separate objects.
