we opened up Muse and created different pages, creating a background, a button and page title/number. once we did this we used the hyperlink option to create a link between all the pages, so if you click on the button it takes you to the next page until you get to the last page which takes you back to the home page.

In class, we used Adobe Fuse to model and create a character based on ourselves and dress them to suit a video game of our own choice. The character mostly had to have close to our facial features, to really practice the modelling aspect.

Once the modelling aspect of all the body parts and proportions was done we added clothing and edited colours, accessories and makeup. Once we finished the model and saved it, we downloaded it with textures and all and went over to a site called mixamo where we uploaded said model and rigged it so we could see how it looked and worked doing actual movements.
