Project Based Assignments for making a portfolio ready Character.
J Hill will take you through the entire process of making a AAA game character of your own using tools & techniques used in the Video Game industry.
Follow along at your own pace as J teaches you his step by step methods of creating high resolution source meshes for baking in ZBrush as well as re-topology methods in Maya for creating game-ready models for texturing, rendering, and animation.
Students will be introduced to the industry-standard PBR texturing workflow and Substance Painter. These skills are essential for creating real-time character models used in Video Games and VR today. Finally, learn how to import assets into Marmoset Toolbag for the final rendering and how to present your character in a portfolio to make an impact.

"Exceptional course that presents an all-encompassing approach to character creation for video games. At the risk of sounding cliche, it's actually everything that you would expect from such a course, and a lot more."
"J is an awesome instructor. All of his lectures are easy to understand and I had fun watching them. He gives a lot of things which are very difficult to find on boards or other tutorials. This was one of the best courses I've ever taken."
"I loved his teaching methodology (concise, fun and easily understood), as well as the fact that the lessons are full of compact information. It was well worth my money, so thank you!"
"I took his class last year and now I'm working my dream job."
Hey, my name Jason Hill or JHill and I'm a senior character artist in the Game Industry with over 9 years of experience. I've made characters for games like Apex Legends, Titanfall 2, and Evolve. As an only child of two teachers I hope to help and motivate others to follow their passions in life.
My goal is to help demistify technical workflows and empower students to continue to grow, learn, and pursue their interest in art and design.
