Learn the same professional 3D art skills our development educators used to recreate the International Space Station for NASA simulations.
Prepare yourself now for to be ready to use popular 3D modeling tools like Autodesk Maya, 3DS Max, and Blender today by mastering the same 3D art skills you'll be using in the industry.
Students start by learning the basics of 3D character modeling by creating basic shapes in Blender, the open source industry standard for creating professional 3D assets in games and movies.
Through a series of challenges students level up their modeling skills until the point where they are able to recreate characters from famous games.
Students can take this class multiple times to further progress their 3D art skills with more advanced challenges.
For their final challenge, students are tasked with creating a 3D monster based on the design ideas of the Pokemon franchise.
