Environment modelling is an essential and exciting part of game level creation. In this course, Game Environment Modelling Fundamentals, you’ll start with creating a blackout of a dungeon scene. 

Next, you’ll split the scene into individual assets, and will sculpt high-resolution props in ZBrush for the environment. You’ll then take it into Marmoset Toolbag and create a final render of your scene. 

By the end this course, you’ll know how to lay out and model your own game environment. You’ll need 3ds Max, ZBrush, Photoshop and Marmoset Toolbag.
