How is the quality and versatility of this 3D model?
I had an artist make a character model for me. The size is fine. It is going to be used for a turn based fantasy strategy game played on a 2D isometric map.
The price was very reasonable and I need lots of such models for the game. They do NOT need to be customized. What you see is what you get for the player. I will likely be displaying it a smaller pixel size than the model given.
Here is the problem:
I don't program or know anything about what I need yet. But I don't want to lose the artist...and want him continuing his work until I get a programmer (which will be in the future).
I'm not sure the language/platform. What I want to do is have the game made using a 3D engine but put on 2D maps and be a 2D game. I'm not even sure rotating the character models is necessary. But I would like to know if it would work with this particular model.
I am attaching the files received from the artist. There are no animations yet. Can someone take a look? If this is something I need to pay for I can do that.
I want to know if I need anything else? IF the quality/resolution is ok? What is the general impression of the quality...consideration the game is not supposed to be high end at all. Its supposed to look nice though and have cool units on the battlefield (20 or more at a time).
Am I limited at all in how I can use this model?
Also, I am just getting the model. No animations. When I do decide on the animations to use should the artist be doing this OR the coder? OR both? Can I use this model to program an animation?
Anyway, any help would be appreciated.
