Overview

In this beginner focused specialization we will show you the essentials of 2d and 3d game art production as well as concept art for games and current gen game art workflow. While each of the four courses will build your knowledge of the practice of game art, each module is a self contained unit designed to teach a specific area.

By the end of the Art for Games  Specialization offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Michigan, you will have a thorough knowledge of the creation of high-quality game art assets. Through these courses, you will be using Maya, Unity, Photoshop, Sketchup, ZBrush, Marmoset Toolbag, and Substance Painter.

Applied Learning Project

In this specialization learners will create pixel art assets for games, create low-poly 3D assets for games, understand how to study composition, create environment concept painting, create a current gen photo-realistic game prop. Each course within this specialization provides multiple opportunities for students to show their work, and build off what they have done previously.
