I am looking for a program that can do cartoon-like graphics. The graphics I am aiming for would be similar to those or Roller Coaster Tycoon, Sim City, etc. It would also help if the program was capable of doing several views of a single character/object. If anyone knows of such a program, please tell me. Thanks. - Everyone

Hiya,

Sounds like 3D to me, you can use MAX to build high poly models, apply colourful materials to convey cartoon charactistics.

You''ll need a rendering plugin for MAX or check options if using MAX 3.x for cartoon rendering, either that or for simple shiny style use normal rendering. (with those colourful characters)

Hope this helps

i dont know a lot about the subject but i do know that nurbs are used to make cartoon graphics. Im not sure which programs support this but i know this has been used to great effect in some games.

Blender (available free and legally from www.blender.nl) works well with nurbs and I believe it has some special capability for working with cartoon material. It has apparently been used to make two successful cartoon animated movies, but I don''t know what they are.
