What you will learn
Going through tutorial projects step-by-step is a really powerful way to learn the different modeling tools and techniques. You can see how those tools work as you follow along and create a particular model with your tutor.
The real power, however, comes from being able to take the techniques you've learned and apply them in a different way to a different project. This knowledge and adaptability only comes from practice and the experience of dealing with different situations as they arise. To simulate this, you'll be presented with a series of topological exercises.
Each exercise will consist of three lessons covering topics from N-Gons to facial topology. In the first lesson, we will review the skill or technique using a particular asset. We'll talk about specific tools and go through their application step-by-step. In the second lesson, you'll receive a new asset and instructions for the exercise. This will be your opportunity to apply what you've just learned to a completely different model. In the final lesson, we will go through your exercise step-by-step and you can compare your results. There will be small hints provided for each exercise but we encourage you not to look at those if possible.
Each Skill-Builder Tutorial ends with a final project where you'll get to take all of the new skills and techniques you've learned and apply them to your own mini-project.
