character creation

hello, i am new to this and i was wondering what do i need to get inorder to create a custom character, only just got unreal engine 4.8 and i do not have my own characters so i wanted to make new ones of my own but im not sure what i need.

At first make your concept. And then you need a 3d modeling software like 3ds max, maya, blender to make it and send the rigged character in unreal.

Here is a pretty good tutorial series for blender: :slight_smile:
