Free introduction to Game Art

PLESA NOTE: THIS MASTERCLASS WILL BE IN SPANISH

GOAL

– The main objective is focused on creating a pack of Game Assets 3D, modeled and textured. So that the workshop assistant can prepare a project and / or mobile game prototype on their own. At the same time you have an introduction or your first contact with 3D for video games.

 

AGENDA

– Present and inform what Blender and Free Software is, as well as their objectives.

– Introduction and explanation of what Game Art is. And how Free Software offers innumerable advantages as a complement, in the use and development for the creation of videogames.

– How Game Art is applied in mobile platforms, and the extreme importance of optimization.

– Creation of a Game Assets 3D Pack from start to finish. Going through the stage of modeling, texturing and export. All in a 100% practical way.

– How to create and present a project at the portfolio level and Dev Blog (Development blog). As well as knowing powerful dissemination techniques in Social Networks, to gain visibility

 

WHAT IS GAME ART?
– Game Art is the development of artistic material that is required to make the whole visual part of a video game.
