This course covers advanced modeling techniques used for building three-dimensional character and creatures. Students will explore techniques of character modeling to include the various approaches of figure construction. Other topics covered include research/planning, marketing, preproduction, production and postproduction.

Learning Outcomes

Students will develop 2 photorealistic objects, and display them appropriately for their intended industry. The first example will be an “believable” human, the second a “believable” creature. Students will conceptualize their proposals using traditional proven art techniques and references gathered from real world.
