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 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 imagination, as well as a peek into the fascinating world of the concept designer.

Description

If you are a movie lover, you've seen Maya in action. This award-winning 3D animation software package has advanced features that allow an imaginative artist to create the impossible, or at least the never considered. Maya has been used to create eye-popping movie characters like the gods, monsters and mutant heroes in The Avengers, as well as their vehicles and weapons that are always at hand. This course introduces the basics of the Maya interface and the concepts of 3D modeling. During class, you complete a Maya model that, while only the first step to creating a whole new universe, highlights the possibilities of this unique tool. Given the career possibilities emanating from the study of 3D animation, why not start here?
