Students are taught the technical, artistic and sensory aspects of surface types such as specularity, that will equip them with the ability to create realistic looking virtual objects. They will also learn about the production pipeline and how to be procedural so that the production values are high within a relatively short turn around. Students work with software such as Maya Photoshop and crazy bump. It provides an entry point for Level III courses in Game Art.
