Hi Elliott, This is a great breakdown and very generous in sharing your process and insights, you came a long way from the vending machine days!
Are you planning on releasing the UE4 project to the public? Or only builds? I'd love to play around with it in the editor if possible!
The Winter 2018 registration period for CGMA, the leading online art school, is coming to an end in just 2 weeks. CGMA has been providing an affordable and accessible route to interactive learning for students across all times zones for almost a decade. Professionals from acclaimed studios are amongst the growing CGMA student body with other students that may be early in their digital art careers. It’s amazing that students are not just learning from the best but are also rubbing shoulders (virtually speaking) with other professionals.
The academy serves artists across multiple disciplines to ensure students gain invaluable insight into the concepts and workflows used at professional studios worldwide. While CGMA’s top mentees have gone on to produce some of the most iconic and innovative work the industry has seen, it’s common for some to come back each term for course offerings that reflect the latest techniques and practices shaping our ever-evolving computer graphics industry.
What follows are the courses and programs available today, with start dates the first week of February. Registration is ending soon with individual payment plans available for each course. Get in touch now to discuss registration, find out more, or make a portfolio review request – either via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on (818) 561 9542.
