This intermediate-level class will focus on creating high-resolution textures and shaders with a film/cinematic approach. The texturing specifically will focus on a creature bust, pin-pointing major detail areas such as the facial skin, teeth, gums, lips, and ears. Students will also be focusing on the more difficult and intricate portions of texturing, such as skin details and man-made materials.

I have done a number of these courses from various providers over the years. This was by far my favourite in all aspects, both in terms of how approachable the teacher was, how knowledgeable he was, and how much in depth information he shared with us. Top marks all around!
