GA 3860 - Digital Sculpting

Credits: 3

In this junior-level class, students gain skills to create 3D assets using digital sculpting software. This class focuses on sculpting both inside and outside the constraints of subdivided geometry. The final assignment emphasizes creating clean topology and edge flow, enabling students to create high-quality assets that are ready for the next phase of production within a video game studio. Upon successful completion of this course, students will have gained competency with digital sculpting tools, as well as learned the process and importance of creating various texture maps for use in a game engine.

Prerequisites: none

Course Learning Outcomes:
  • Model and refine production quality assets utilizing industry-standard tools and techniques.
  • Utilize sculpting tools to add high-level detail to low-poly meshes.
  • Bake normal and height maps from high-resolution sculpted meshes.
