IS THIS COURSE RIGHT FOR YOU?

This course is for people interested in further developing their knowledge, artistic and digital skills in the area of concept and production art for the digital media entertainment industries such as Feature Film, TV, Digital Games, Advertising and Visualisation.

Learners will already have developed a good ability and passion for visual arts, as evidenced by submitting a portfolio of drawings and creative work that demonstrate their artistic ability.

MORE ABOUT THIS COURSE

The course includes face-to-face training in traditional and digital drawing, painting for concept art, storyboarding, character and environment design, matte painting and digital sculpting. Learning is supported by readings and video tutorials in our online Moodle.

In addition to common core subjects, you can specialise in either 2D digital concept art or 3D digital concept art, depending on which group of specialist electives you choose.

The 2D electives focus on drawing and painting skills (both traditional and digital) and are an excellent choice for students who are artistically minded with good drawing skills, looking to develop more specialised skills and knowledge to become a digital 2D artist for feature films, TV and games. Stronger portfolios for applicants interested in these 2D electives usually include drawings, sketches or paintings of real-world objects, people and places.

The 3D electives focus on digital 3D modelling, texturing, and games artistry skills and are an excellent choice for students who are technically minded and comfortable using visual art and design software and who are looking to develop specialised skills to become a 3D artist for feature films, TV games and virtual reality. Stronger portfolios for applicants interested in these 3D electives usually include digital paintings and designs and any real-word or digital 3D creative work.
