Breaking down environment scenes
During this class students will get to experience the environment pipeline creation from start to finish. Going from initial idea, block in phase, asset creation, lighting, and presentation. This will allow them to familiarize themselves with all the software packages that are used during production. The goal of the class will be to create several high-quality assets that will come together to create one cohesive scene that is well presented.

Andres was a great teacher. His comments, suggestions and critiques were very insightful and helpful in developing my project. His suggestions were always coupled with explanations and examples of why they would be beneficial which is a great way to develop an understanding of what to look for when developing our own work.

Andres is probably the best teacher I ever had and I recommend this class (or other classes with him) to everyone. -
