October 2013 – Present • Norwich, UK
In this course I am being taught how to use 3D Software like Autodesk Maya and Zbrush, how to use game engines like Unity and UDK, as well as advance my skills in concept art and illustration. NUA lets me learn the basics of 3D softwares needed in the game industry, but also focus on concept art. Because of the nature of the curriculum, I have become very good at working in a team.
