Tracks Overview

Understand the role of a Character Artist

Character artists are the engines that drive the world of 3D animation. In essence they are responsible for translating pre-production and concept art into a solid, workable 3D form for the animation team--but that barely scratches the surface of what’s involved. What is remarkable about this job is the way it combines technical precision with artistic expression, providing a unique opportunity to build the characters and creatures that ultimately define a project. Little wonder the role of character artist is often regarded as the most coveted in entertainment design. 

As you complete each course, you will receive a certificate of completion for that course. In order to qualify for a course certificate of completion, students must complete at least 80% of the class assignment during the duration of the course.  

Should you have any questions regarding these courses please contact registration@cgmasteracademy.com. Additionally, you only pay for the course(s) you take in a given term.

These intensive courses are designed to take students through the entire process of character creation, developing the skills required to become a character artist capable of producing work to industry standards. Along the way students will become fluent in human anatomy, familiarize themselves with professional character pipelines, and master the tools and techniques used by seasoned professionals when sculpting, modeling, and finessing the surface detail on their creations. While some of the classes emphasize character arts from a games development perspective, the Character Arts track is equally valid for those eyeing a career in animation and VFX for film or television, where the scale and nature of the work typically requires larger teams of artists working in more specialized roles. For such students it provides a unique opportunity to gain a solid understanding of the entire pipeline while refining skills for their chosen specialist role, such as hard surface modeler, prop artist, texture artist, rigging artist, or creature designer.
