Texture Mapping vs Texture Painting
Texturing plays an important role in adding detail to your character. Learn efficient image mapping and painting workflows in Blender, as well as how to properly export and import into Unity.
Use this Class as an Introduction to Unity Game Engine
A video game engine is essential for compiling 3D models, environments, and animation into an interactive experience. Artists can market themselves exponentially with Game Engine skills, as many companies entering the Virtual Reality and Immersive Tech Sector are seeking artists with experience with Unreal Engine, Unity, and other Game Engines.
Import, Configure, and Add Component
Configuring the model is where extra accessories and details can be added; for example, some characters have pointy "cat ears" which have different bone placement. One of the final steps is to "Add Component" which allows you to set up the VRC Avatar Descriptor.
