I'm Anya Elvidge. I am a freelance concept and environment artist for games based in the UK. I began my career at Creative Assembly on the Total War series before taking on some freelance work and joining Rare Ltd on Everwild. Since then, I have gone freelance full-time and work for clients such as Gameloft, Supercell, Amazon Games, and more, doing a mixture of 3D and 2D work. I have taught at multiple UK universities and online institutions, whilst also offering personal online mentorships more recently. I want these sessions to be a forum for you to ask questions and find guidance through the complex world of environment art.
This is my first live group Stylised 3D environment art mentorship, lasting 8 weeks from Wed 29th September 5:30pm GMT+1 (09:30am PST). This is limited to 10 seats. Each week I will run a 1.5 hour live session (1 hour lesson, 30mins Q&A/discussion) on Discord discussing the foundational elements of environment art. There will be suggested homework each week which is non-essential, and I will review each student's work each week. Students will have the opportunity to suggest topics of interest.
I will not be covering software-specific techniques (though I may talk about some); I will be covering a more holistic approach to environment creation for games, from good foliage creation practises to colour theory, composition and shape design. This is independent of the softwares you may choose to make your work in.
The price includes entry to a private group Discord with session notes, recorded sessions, and a forum for weekly feedback/overpaints on your homework and projects.
Dates; Every Wednesday 5:30pm GMT+1 from September 29th 2021 (until 17th Nov 2021).
Skill level; Intermediate
What you need; Knowledge of 3D modelling programs such as Max, Maya, Blender. Texturing programs such as Photoshop, Substance, 3D Coat. Game engines such as UE4, Unity. Some experience making 3D environments or assets before.
Please note I specialise in Max, Photoshop, and UE4 but I do have experience in other softwares.
What we cover- may be subject to change;
Colour, lighting, composition, foliage creation, readability, texturing practises, and much more. Students are welcome to suggest topics on Discord!
PLEASE NOTE that while I will endeavour to make the sessions as professional and smooth as possible, this is a pilot run of a live group- something I have been meaning to do for a long time- and we may run into technical issues or things I do not anticipate! :) I am therefore running this series at a discounted price, and participants will recieve free access to any future downloadable, paid educational content I make.
When you purchase the course you will recieve a link to the private group Discord where all communication takes place.
