Learn to create low-poly sets with Blender and Unity

A course by Daniel Gutiérrez

A video game allows you to build worlds that give players the opportunity to live unique experiences. From the big picture down to the smallest details, it all adds up to creating different sensations. Art director and 3D modeling specialist Daniel Gutiérrez has extensive experience designing sets for independent video games, which you can enjoy on platforms such as Xbox, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.

In this online course, Daniel teaches you how to design, 3D model, and texture a low-poly set in Blender and then integrate it into Unity, a world-famous video game development platform.
