IANIM 2850 Organic Modeling

This is an introductory course in digital sculpting to facilitate the creation of narrative fabrication projects. This course covers the techniques involved in building organic 3D models using industry standard modeling-specific applications. Emphasis is placed on figure study as well as asymmetrical modeling, its importance in the modeling process, and the utilization of application tools for an efficient production pipeline. Methodologies for building animation-ready assets from concept sculpts will also be explored. Students will sculpt virtually through 3D digital sculpting programs and build models in virtual clay to be printed with 3D printers.
