This is your last chance to grab a seat in some of the gamedev art classes, provided by ArtStation and Gnomon.
For the next two weeks (6-19 of August) Artstation is holding a really interesting new series of masterclasses from some of the best artists working in this field. You’ll get an opportunity to learn about modular environment art, sculpting, illustration, world building, modeling and texturing.
The masterclasses cost $325, which is relatively cheap if you consider all the stuff you’re getting: 20+ hours of instructions, forum, consultations from instructors. Speaking about instructors, you’ll be able to talk with Josh Lynch, Brian Recktenwald, Nate Stephens, Eddie Bennun, as well as a bunch of others! It’s a great opportunity for newcomers, as well as people, who want to improve their skills and learn some modern techniques, used in the biggest studios in the world.
