    Course/Certification Overview

    In this course, students will explore conceptual ideas

    and approaches involved in creating successful hyper-realistic character that can be applied to video games or virtual reality concepts. Students will develop their practical skills in 3Dcharacter and props modeling, digital sculpting, digital painting, creating materials, Texturing, UVW unwrapping, rigging, lighting, rendering, and working with game engines.


    Moreover, students will gain hands-on experience in using professional tools such as 3D Studio Max, Maya, Zbrush, Substance Painter, Render engines and Game engines.

    By the end of the course, each student will have a hyper-realistic character for their own portfolio.


    Complimentary 3D game design assets: Interactive video lessons, brushes for digital painting & sculpting, Textures, Materials, 3D game assets, Low-poly Base meshes, etc..
