The lessons are not prerecorded videos, however they are recorded during the session so that students can access the video and have their questions answered again and again. This helps the students learn faster as they do not need to spend time taking notes thus remain focus on the session and ask questions. A student can join the lessons from almost any device and location globally that has access to the internet.

(No prior knowledge is required)

 

Who is it for:

Anyone interested into getting familiar with 2D digital concept art design techniques. Anyone interested into getting familiar with 2D digital drawing, character and environment design techniques and build a portfolio for either the Game Design or the Movie production industry. Anyone interested into studying a related course field like Illustration, Game Design, 2D or 3D Animation, 3D Modeling and more on an undergraduate Bachelor (BA Hons) Degree level. University students or graduates form similar Bachelor (BA Hons) or Masters Degree courses who aim to level up their skills fast.

 

Course Details:

This Game Design course aims to educate the students in the field of concept art for the entertainment industries. The course will introduce the students to image editing applications from the first session and will develop the attendant’s skills and software knowledge required from a concept art artist in the game design, animation and movie production industry. The attendants will be trained in the area of character design and environment design and learn effective techniques for developing fundamental skills and creative aspiration.

This concept art course will teach the students to make use of every resource, references and information available around them, and effectively make them capable of producing ideas for designing complex structures, majestic environments and characters. In addition the attendants will learn to use strategic brainstorming techniques for structuring and developing ideas when they have at lack of inspiration or a feeling of being art blocked.

The students will practice their skills in fields such as Body Anatomy, Scale, Perspective, Scene Layout, Scene Mapping, Camera Angles, Color Theory, Composition and more. Finally, the workshop aims to make the students as efficient as possible by teaching them specific techniques of how to work faster and smarter rather than harder by prioritizing their workflow and saving themselves countless of hours of struggle.

A complete portfolio will be built, with a series of digital environments designed from many angles, along with complete digital character charts that include poses, facial expressions, props and more. Finally, completing this Game Design – Concept Art course the students are expected to gain a solid understanding of the fundamental techniques that are required to design complex ideas and lastly feel confident using image editing applications.

3D MODELING (LEVEL 1)

3D Modeling (Level 1)

(No prior knowledge required)

 

Who is it for:

Anyone interested into learning 3D modeling techniques inside 3D software applications and build a portfolio for either the Game Design or the Movie production industry. Anyone interested into studying a related course field like Game Design, 3D Animation, Visual Effects and more on an undergraduate Bachelor (BA Hons) Degree level. University students or graduates form similar Bachelor (BA Hons) or Masters Degree courses who aim to level up their skills fast.

 

Course Details:

The 3D Modeling course is split in two parts. The first part is solely focused on building and developing an idea for the 3D models that you will produce, based on a theme. A series of workshops and live demonstrations will explain in detail a variety of techniques and necessary tools required for designing a number of rough 3D models (blocking stage or 3D concepts) for characters, environments, vehicles, mechas, props, products, interiors, exteriors and more. These rough 3D models be used as guiding meshes on the second part of the course.

The second part of this 3D Modeling course entails the use of the above rough 3D meshes along with gathered references for creating a fully functional and production ready 3D model. The students will be trained to use effective and efficient workflows that delve within Polygonal modeling and Non-Uniform Rational Base Spline (Nurbs) modeling. Once the modeling stage is completed, a series of step by step sessions will demonstrate in detail the UV unwrapping, texturing, material shading and lighting processes that are required to render the final images. As a final step in this 3D Modeling course, the rendered images will be post processed within an image editing application for compositing, to enhance the visual aesthetics by adding secondary finishing touches and details.

 

Skills Acquired in the Course:

  • Research
  • Brain Storming
  • Idea Generation
  • Polygonal modeling
  • NURBS modeling
  • Character Modeling
  • Environment Modeling
  • UV Unwrapping
  • Texturing
  • Lighting
  • Materials / Shading
  • Rendering
  • Compositing

3D ANIMATION – Production (LEVEL 1)

3D Animation – Production (Level 1)

(No prior knowledge required)

Who is it for:

Any student who aims to build an animation portfolio for either the Game Design or the Movie production industry. Anyone interested into studying a related course field like Game Design, Film Production, Visual Effects, Motion Graphics and more on an undergraduate Bachelor (BA Hons) Degree level. University students or graduates form similar Bachelor (BA Hons) or Masters Degree courses who aim to level up their skills fast.

 

Course Details:

The 3D Animation production course is split into two sections and aims to teach the students the core skills required to build and animate 3D characters. The first section of the 3D Animation course is divided in two parts, the creative and the technical. The creative part of this course is focused on designing a series of simple characters one of which will be selected and modeled in a 3D application. Even though this is not a dedicated 3D Modeling course, the technical part of this course will teach the attendants the basics regarding 3D modeling techniques that are required to properly model simple characters for animation purposes along with all their props. The students will also get familiar with UV layouts, texturing, shading, lighting and rigging techniques in order to get their characters ready for the second section of the course and the animation stage.

During the second section of the 3D Animation production course the students will complete a series of animation exercises aiming to create skills in the areas of timing for animation, sense of weight, anticipation, facial expressions, walk cycles, run cycles and more. At the end of the course the students will know how to animate within a 3D application using straight ahead animation techniques and pose to pose techniques. Finally, the students will export all the animated exercises by rendering them out frame by frame for compositing purposes. Completing this 3D Animation course a student will have a portfolio with a series of short animated sequences including sound effects and music.
