3D Bioforms: Intro to 3D Modeling

Course No. LSI 345  Credits: 3.0

The course is designed to cover concepts in digital 3D organic and device model construction, whereby the virtual models designed are rendered and composited for 2D illustration purposes to solve specific conceptual problems. The subject matter within the Game Design curriculum reflects the development of characters, game environments and specific assets for game development. Students outside the Game Design Major, are required to work with subjects appropriate to their major field of study for concept development and for long-term portfolio objectives. Projects include concepts and workflow for constructing a virtual 3D surface by: (1) defining the visual problem within a concept sketch in pre-production, (2) utilizing specific introductory modeling methods to build the 3D illustration components, (3) the use of basic lighting and rendered materials, (4) export methods into Adobe Photoshop for augmentation, finishing and final illustration techniques and layout. Projects require the student to gain and improve upon conceptual skills, problem-solving in specific media situations (digital 2D & 3D) and technical proficiency at an introductory level in 3D modeling.
