Description

Designers can start drawing, designing, and rendering their ideas with this free downloadable 3D modeling toolkit used for everything from architecture to jewelry to game design to 3D printing. This course teaches students about the use of SketchUp as a design and rendering tool. The instructor presents the fundamentals of the interface, and how to model original spaces and objects from scratch or import prebuilt objects from the Google warehouse. The accelerated format allows for faster learning as students quickly move on to advanced topics like texturing objects and simple animation creation. This course is recommended for novice designers or design students interested in learning how to incorporate 3D into their work.

The instructor will introduce you to the basics of interactivity using preprogrammed game modules, which illustrate behaviors like mouse- and keyboard-controlled animation and boundary events. Students can expect to learn coding techniques and get an introduction to Adobe Suite programs like Illustrator or Photoshop. While there is no need for prior programming knowledge, students should be interested in computer technology and the potential of gaming to convey compelling experiences.

Description

Behind every great 3D video game is a concept designer, who designs creatures, characters, swords, guns and other game assets that visually represent a virtual world. Young artists in this course are introduced to this profession, and to the state-of-the-art software tool, ZBrush, a digital sculpting program that combines 3D modeling, texturing and painting. With ZBrush, artists can create characters and creatures as if they were shaping clay, and give them dramatic surface treatments that result in high-resolution models. More than a software tutorial, this course is an exercise in unfettered imagination, as well as a peek into the fascinating world of the concept designer.
