Introduction to Vector and Pixel Art

This course has close ties to the Game Art program but also introduces students to some of the tools used in Graphic, Interactive & Web Design. The students learn to draw using vectors, which is the starting point for 3D graphics in Game Art as well as for content creation in Graphic Design. The students also explore pixel art that resembles graphics seen in 8bit video games. This prepares students interested in Game Art with the foundation for optimization found in mobile gaming and VR applications as well as the creation of NFT art (Non-Fungible Tokens).
