Intro to 3D Modeling with Maya
Become a well-rounded 3D artist capable of using modeling software in games, film, and tv with this course. 3D design and modeling open doors into all kinds of modern creative careers. Learn, discover, create and enjoy learning with other passionate creators.
After learning the basics of Maya’s UI and tools, students will practice creating complex shapes and models. Once students are comfortable with basic modeling concepts, advanced skills and techniques will be taught as students model their own human character and create textures before rendering their final model. Throughout the course, students will gain an understanding of career paths and studio roles while engaging in a collaborative process.
