More information


Also known as “soft surface modeling,” the main objective of this specialization is to acquire advanced skills for creating characters with a high level of detail and quality. Basic human anatomy will be incorporated, integrating theoretical knowledge with specific practices that will allow professional organic models to be achieved.

By using ZBrush, you will learn advanced digital sculpting techniques, manipulating shapes and surfaces to achieve extremely detailed finishes. The integration of digital sculpture in a 3D environment through Autodesk Maya will also be addressed, focusing on the relationship between human anatomy and the creative design of organic objects.

We will delve into texturing with Substance Painter and rendering in Autodesk Maya with the Arnold Render engine. Advanced lighting and composition systems will be explored, in order to present the final polished 3D model.

This course offers complete training, providing the skills necessary to achieve professional and visually impressive results. You will end the course with your own demo reel, your letter of introduction in the industry.

What do you learn?

Incorporate essential skills for modeling and texturing high polygonal models (High Poly).

Apply specialized techniques in environments of high definitional demand, such as cinema.

Develop skills to adapt to various media that impose high requirements in modeling and texturing.

Learn to integrate characters into any video game Engine from High Poly models, being essential in the creation of Low Poly models.

Strengthen specialized skills in character design, covering fundamental aspects for their visual representation.

Improve and refine the skill in creating textures for polygonal models, adding detail and realism.

Develop knowledge that allows you to function in a versatile way in different creative sectors, such as cinema, animation, video games and 3D Printing.

Acquire the ability to adapt to specific industry requirements, maintaining a comprehensive approach in modeling and texturing complex scenarios.
