Second Year, Computer-Generated Drawing

The Second Year CG Drawing

Classes in 2D drawing evolve toward narrative drawing which stage decors and characters (observed or imagined).  Modeling is taught through advanced CG sculpture. In fact, object design must be dealt with, in order to adhere to the specific and real needs of the professional world. How can you invent a vehicle for a videogame when you cannot use existing brands? How can you invent a contemporary artistic object?

The recent accessibility of 3D printers enable work to be finalized and printed to better grasp volumes, proportions, perspectives, etc. Exercises which are “outsourced” by the school’s undergraduates enable students in the CG Drawing Training Program to adapt their know-how to third-party art management and group projects. At the end of the school year, technical skills are sufficient for carrying out a personal project in the following year. During Year 2, animation, modelling and texturing classes are completed.
