This course teaches students to design characters in 3D. Understanding the methods of traditional sculpting is an integral part of learning the foundations of 3D design. Beginning with character design fundamentals, students learn armature construction, dynamic and neutral posing, and then concentrate heavily on primary and secondary forms, texturing and detailing their pieces. Lectures and demonstrations support and inform the overall process of completing a sculpture to a polished, professional finish. Students are expected to cover the cost of supplies, estimated between $175 to $210.
