Over the summer I ran a class for high school students teaching them game art over the course of two weeks, Monday -> Thursday. Special Thanks to Laela Russell, Sara Giovanello and Sally Tan who were incredibly helpful as teaching assistants and Marty Murphy for designing the structure I worked off of.
Card Back: design a card back inspired by a popular game of their choice that is instantly recognizable from the property. Time spent was 2-3 days learning Substance Painter.
Loot Crate: design a loot crate asset that fits stylistically in the genre of the game of their choice. Time spent was 4 days learning Maya.
