What is the next livestream about?
The next High School OutReach event will be Professor Ezra Cove, on the following topic:
Prof. Cove will be interacting with students about his professional career as a 3D artist and animator and demonstrating techniques in Blender. Blender is a free and powerful 3D modeling and sculpting package , which HS students can try out themselves RIGHT NOW e.g. while so many people have time on their hands, are home-bound, and looking for ways to fill their days. Prof Cove is presently working on a personal project – a character – completely done in Blender. Has he has been pushing Blender to see what it can do, so, as time allows, he will be able to demo some aspects sculpting, re-topology, UV layout, texturing, and real-time rendering. He will use his original character design to point out how he created the various parts, highlighting not just Blender’s capabilities, but also giving people a better idea of the full 3D production art process.
