AAD 52900 Concept Design

This advanced design course will allow graduate students to use two-dimensional studio art skills, digital painting, and three-dimensional computer sculpture to create concept designs for games and film. The course will focus on transforming rudimentary descriptions into a fully realized artistic concept; examples include character, costume design, mechanical design, architectural design, and environmental design. Through case studies, students will also analyze the theories behind concept design. Lab fee required. This class may require the use of a virtual reality headset identified by the instructor.
