Hi i'm here to ask if anybody could make a nice character modeling tutorial to tell me how to make a FULL human body.All the tutorials i have had don't tell me everything i need to do or don't write clearly enough.I have gmax but i don't if it will work for character modeling.If anybody could give a link to a nice and easy program for modeling characters for jk2?
THANK YOU!:D

Gmax will not work for player models, well you can model them but there wont be any way to compile them to .glm from a gmax file format, add on top of that the fact that gmax doesnt have any skin modifier to rig the mesh to the bones.

Another tutorial (not as great for low poly, but the head modeling is excellent):

Gmax will work for modeling but you wont be able to get the model in the game.

Softimage XSI or 3D studio max are the only ones that will export a JK2 model.
