Instructor: David Hurwich
This is an advanced 3D modeling class that builds from the foundation skills taught in the entry level 3D modeling class . Students will learn advanced concepts as it relates to 3D modeling. Students will learn about advanced 3D materials, animating in 3D, rigging, 3D sculpturing and particle systems using the free, but powerful 3D application Blender. Students will learn about advanced techniques for modeling unique and complex objects.
At the end of the workshop students will have produced their own sophisticated 3D model. Students will also get final tips and feedback from a special guest professional 3D model artist during the last class session. Students will learn how to insert their model into a free working video game and be able to interact with the model in the game world!
This will be a live synchronous course. Students will need a computer or smart phone with webcam and microphone, internet and web streaming capacity, and the Zoom application installed to their device. They will also need to install the free cross-platform application Blender.
