Course Description

Whether you know it or not, nearly every studio has a special team of artists called Visual Developers that have a tremendous amount of creative control. These artists work very close to the director to get a project “green lit” (funded) as quickly as possible.

In this lesson I show you how to crank out a Sci-Fi weapon design from scratch in less than a day. This is not a conventional modeling video or a traditional concept course. Instead this is a workflow that exposes the tools and techniques that Visual Developers use to rapidly generate photo-real 3D Concept Art at nose bleed speeds.

We will cover story, setting up a VisDev pipeline, how to design quickly using 3D, client presentation, and even "hot-rodding" your hardware. I will also show you how to render in Keyshot as opposed to MentalRay/Vray because those packages are simply too slow for this type of development.

Regardless of your background or skill level, with my help you will be on your way to breaking into this new and exciting Visual Development role as a high speed 3D Concept Artist.
