The Spring 2014 semester saw undergraduates from the College of Fine Arts create 3D Digital Art & Animation. The students in the course participated in an in-depth study and practice of 3D modeling, surfacing, lighting, rendering, animation, compositing, and visual FX using Autodesk Maya, Adobe Photoshop, among other programs.
This particular semester was a collaboration between the whole class. They were to create graphics based on the pop art of Roy Lichtenstein. Each student modeled, textured, rigged, and animated a painting, then created transitions to make the video flow from one to another.
