Character creation guides from Valve
Back to index
Valve, the creators of the latest DOTA 2 game, published a series of PDF documents that describe some of the core concepts an artist should know in order to design characters or other assets for the game. However, these can be very useful for any 3D designer who wants to learn about some of the requirements and tricks to make game elements look good.
The guides are available on the DOTA site at these links:
* Dota 2 Character Art Guide (PDF)
* Dota 2 Character Texture Guide (PDF)
* Shader Masks Guide (PDF)
