3D foundations: In term one, we establish our first win: creating a realistic 3D asset that we can place in a game engine. This is the foundation of all Game Tech and we have this down to a science! We'll teach you our process from high poly to low poly to texture and render. Then show you how to make it look amazing in Unreal Engine.

Character Artist Or Environment Artist: In term two, you'll enroll in either the Character Artist bootcamp or the Environment Artist bootcamp. You will build one capstone project under the direction of your mentor. This is a time for you to dive deep into your choosen profession and master the skills set you'd like to earn your living with.
