This month kicks off my third academic year at Full Sail University and it also marks the beginning of my core classes that revolve around game models, textures, pipelines and techniques.
Many fundamentals we learned in years one and two are now exactly that, fundamentals. The new things we will be learning from now on are packed above the basics or different altogether. I’ll get into more depth on this today.

Can you all believe it? It’s been almost two school years now since I began my classes at Full Sail University and my second year is coming to a close! I just wanted to go ahead and do a recap of it all. It’s been a messy start with all the class recaps all over the place, but I’ll go ahead and consolidate them all right here!

July marked a new course for my FSU education and this time, we take a relaxing route by means of Art History. Overall, it was a nice and smooth-going class. Professor Fugate was great to communicate with and she really puts time into talking with her students.
This recap will be quick since it was a rather straightforward class in general. Continue reading FSU Year 02: Art History

Hey guys! It’s been a while since I reported back about my Full Sail educations. That’s because the last couple classes were very related to each other. They were the fundamentals of animation in 2D and 3D. So, I thought, same concepts, same teacher, why not same report? To top it off, we closed off basic animation with the checkpoint class: Project and Portfolio II, where we apply the culmination of all the new skills we learned from the last 2 classes in animation.
Let’s get to it. Animation is fun. Hands down. There are still ton’s of intricacies and technicalities specially in 3D animation, but either way it is fun. So far, I think of all the things I’ve done in the last (almost) two years, animation is the most enjoyable topic I’ve tackled to date.

A new year at Full Sail University’s BS in Game Art starts off strong with a Fundamentals class in character design. Here are my thoughts on what is my favorite class in FSU yet!

Hey aspiring game devs! Sorry I’ve been gone again. Went out of the country for vacation in December, so I’ve been MIA from classes, as well. But as the year starts, the school year at my FSU experience comes to a halt. This time with a course that culminates everything we learned in the 7 months of model making. It was a great closing experience for the school year and I am totally excited to share this month with you all.
*FYI, FSU07 isn’t missing it was just a very short course with videos and short quizzes that went the same time as this class.*

It’s been 2 months now and I apologize for the lack of Full Sail University updates. I had some rough weeks last month and I was excused from this course the first time.
Now that I’m finally done with my Model Creation course, I can share with you all what we’ve been up to, and 2 months feels right with the amount of work we’ve accomplished in this class.

This class was a handful due in part to it being traditional art. Setup, cleanup and process are all usually more time consuming than digital courses. These last two weeks are focused on value, light and perspectives.

This past week was all about space through line and shape. It was a little less hectic than my labor day weekend, so let me share what’s going on.
