Create models for a production pipeline
You will be creating models that are production friendly using the tools, techniques, and practices that are taught throughout the course. These apply to the game, film, and animation industries. You will create props from provided concept art, and at the end of the class you will assemble them into a scene–creating a vignette you can show in your portfolio or your demo reel.
The more you know, the better.
