Topic Subject:Custom created graphics

Lately there has been a surge in newly custom created graphics - both buildings and units which have been rendered (and even animated!) using 3D software. To give you an example, here is some of Jan DC's and Todler's magnificent work:

Jan DC's Persian Wonder (in progress):

Todler's Flamethrower and Trade Caravan units:

Be sure to have a look at all the other wonderful drool-worthy graphics in their respective threads.

Also, it seems all the modifications done on the game these past years has caught the attention of a certain AoE game developer - hold your breath

Matt Pritchard again?
(He was the one that came onto the AoKH forums and hinted at AoK:HD before its official announcement)

HI. I'm new to mods, I'm working on my first one now. I'd like to get into graphics, could someone tell me what program is used to make these graphics?

Most 3D modelers I know either work with blender or 3D's max. Todler and I work with blender because it's free but still is pretty powerful. 3D's max was used by the original ES designers so that's quite an advantage and is also free if you're a student but otherwise it's very expensive. It's a very long learning curve though and once you get used to one of the programs it's very hard to learn another one.

You'll probably also have to learn using either Gimp or Photoshop to further process your renders and prepare them to be put into the game.

We don't have any tutorials for you to get started but there are plenty of tutorials out there on the internet that will learn you the basics of 3D modeling and once you got that we can help you create your own aoe models.
