This online course will train you to become a professional video game artist. Training centers around developing core skills for jobs related to Digital Art, 3D Art, Modeling, Character Design and Environmental Art Design. Once completed, you will have multiple employable skills including modeling game props and characters, importing required elements into game specific software, animation of game assets, and more.
This is a skills-based course which will teach the key components and competencies needed to excel in positions related to 3D Art for Games and Environmental Art for Games. That said, beyond software and game related techniques, the course touches on just about everything, including general design and concept art.
