Having taught at University of South Wales on the BA (Hons) Game Art Course for 2 years now, I aim to show prospective students how I personally approach my own projects through the following phases:

  • Research and Inspiration
  • 2D Concepting
  • 3D Sculpting
  • Retopology
  • Unwrapping
  • Texturing
  • Rendering in Marmoset and Arnold

The workflow being taught will take you all the way from Pre-Production to Post-Production

The weekly lectures will be broken down into different topics:

  • Anatomy
  • Sculpting Digitally using ZBrush
  • Retopologizing using Dynamesh, Zremesher and Maya 2017 Quad draw tool
  • Unwrapping using UVMaster
  • Texturing using Alphas, Polypaint and Zapplink
  • Baking Normal Maps, Ambient Occlusion, Specular Maps

In general, there are no refunds for the online ZBrush workshop. However, in certain circumstances, it is possible to obtain a full refund if you contact us at least 5 days prior to the start of the course. Regardless of any situation,  a 5% Processing fee is included on all transactions and will not be refundable. Remember that when you register for a class you hold a seat that cannot be taken by someone else once the class starts; especially in a course that is filled to capacity.

Nevertheless, here are some of the options that we provide to our students who may be experiencing special circumstances:

Request of enrollment cancellation during the first week could qualify for a refund, minus a 15% cancellation fee.
Request of enrollment cancellation during the second week (prior to its 5th day) could qualify for a refund, minus a 20% cancellation fee.
Request of a block transfer from one term to another may be allowed, however, an administrative fee equal to 5% of the block cost will be incurred before the student can be confirmed in the next term’s enrollment. Transfer must be requested within the first week of the session. All transfer requests must be submitted within the same fiscal year the blocks were purchased otherwise increased transfer fees will apply.

Ultimately, the decision to refund any amount of money will be made completely at our own discretion.
