3D Art

3D Art Education

3D Art is about images that can be explored from different sides and angles, unlike 2D images which are “flat” and are usually associated with Concept Art. 3D digital art helps to instill a level of depth and liveliness in a given image. This is especially important in video games. It can be used to create characters, environments, props and anything in between. 


A skilled 3D artist would have an understanding of processes such as modeling, texturing, animating, rendering and more. They would work closely with directors and designers to convey their vision in 3D images.

The overall aim of the 3D Art program at ARC Academy is to build the skills and knowledge in 3D art and animation needed by students to become successful members of a game studio. The program’s highlight is the final semester when students from all programs (Game Design, Concept Art, 3D Art and Game Programming) come together to create a game prototype with a studio producer. Studying takes place on-site at our campus, with classes mostly on evenings and weekends to suit anyone with a busy schedule.
