Animation Background Concept Design in Blender


Iola Cathern writes:

You can learn the entire process for creating backgrounds in an animation setting. This course will mainly be based on my series work done with Powerhouse Animation Studios. We will go through the concept/design phase, which is mainly a back and forth between sketching and 3D modeling. Going further in depth with modeling, lighting and rendering using Blender. Finding compositions within the model based on our script description, we will render out a few images to take to final painted backgrounds. Plus a bonus of adding in simple characters and final image adjustments.

The course content covers the following aspects:

  • World building skills, knowledge of how to build scenes and locations for an animated series
  • Drawing and painting over a 3D model
  • Completling a final illustration of a professional standard
  • Altogether gaining inside knowledge of what it takes to work as a background designer in the animation industry.
