What do you learn?
Splash Art (video reel)
What is Splash Art?
The best of two worlds, the personality of 2D and the realism of 3D, coexist in this course. You will learn to convert a 2D illustration or photograph into powerful animations.
Splash Art LOL
Like the League of Legends loading screens, or animated splash of your favorite games, you will acquire a very complete overview of the software used in the industry and add a skill to strengthen your portfolio, offering a very competitive service and of great visual impact.
How to make Splash Art?
You will learn to make a storyboard to plan the angulation and panning of your camera. After preparing the illustration in Photoshop we will see how to simulate that your 2D drawing looks like a 3D sculpture using Blender (the 3D software with the greatest impact in the industry in recent years), maximizing the possibilities of your animation, but maintaining the versatility and the pictorial style of the two dimensions.
Also, you will learn how to prepare a set in Unity, add particles, lights and post-production effects that will make your animation have a professional and dazzling finish. The objective of the course is that you can make your demo reel to present in the industry.

What do our graduates think
Image made me discover that the world of the video game industry was much more extensive than I thought, where learning and improvement are constant. I learned key aspects that served me in the future professionally and helped me set the goals that I wanted to achieve personally and professionally. The mentors are excellent and accompany you throughout the journey.
My experience was very enriching since I was able to work under the mentorship of experienced artists who provided me with design tools and techniques that I still use in my work to this day. After the course I managed to have a much broader panorama and find my professional path as a character designer and animator.
I have been dreaming of studying illustration for years and the truth is that Image exceeded my expectations both academically, as well as the kindness of the teachers and coordinators. They really prepare you for the future of work and teach you how important it is to support each other among fellow artists. Beautiful experience!
Image is doing an outstanding job. All you have to do is know your graduates, with a solid knowledge base adapted to the needs of the Industry. I admire the constant growth they show year after year.
