Module Content & Assessment

Indicative Content
2D Illustration / Sketching
Enhance digital drawing skills, using industry standard tools. Develop skills to take a concept from sketch to digital asset. Create user engaging assets that meet the design and user requirements of your project. Engage with the design process regarding critical analysis and evaluation of created assets. Further develop illustration, image creation and manipulation skills using various industry software products. Build on previous colour theory to create engaging designs for user interaction.
3D illustration, character and assets
Develop a knowledge of the area of 3d illustration. Understand the principles, and processes involved and begin to develop a skill set that demonstrates this.
3D Digital Art
Introduction to 3D Digital Art using Industry Standard Software. Develop an understanding of the 3D software user interface and the ability to combine various applications for a better workflow.
