Character Design like any other design process is best begun with sketching your ideas on paper. Constructing the character’s skeleton and then fleshing it out will open up your options as to how you want the character to be portrayed. One of the basic rules of imaginative, quirky, 3d character design is "Don’t follow norms!". Mostly all creatures have 2 eyes, so try not to stick to routine. How about 1 eye? or no eyes at all? Let your imagination run really wild during the illustration process and your final little cartoon models will not only be unique, they will be much more fun to look at.
There are some great softwares out there for 3d rendering. Some choices amongst many that you would have are Autodesk 3DS Max, Autodesk Maya, Blender and Swift 3D. If you know of any great 3D softwares, please leave a blurb in the comment. Enjoy browsing through these 20 fantastically cute, some weird but all totally awesome and imaginative 3D characters that I came across while browsing the internet today.
