The Workshop

Batari has been producing amazing, intensive and fun digital art workshops over the past 2 years. After successfully organized two Illustration Workshop, we are now launching a 3D Art Workshop for game development.

Where else in the world where you can spend your time working on your art while enjoying the luscious greenery of Ubud, or surfing down the beautiful beach in Bali. Not to mention the opportunity to learn from the professionals who have been working in the interactive entertainment industry.

Throughout the 5 days intensive classes, students will take an in-depth look into material and environment production, as well as the texturing workflows for next generation games. Students will also be seeing first-hand a scene recreation of the game that the mentors are currently working together.

Aside from the theory, techniques and tricks the mentors will also be sharing insights on how to get into the video games industry. Thus, participants will be able to network and build connections amongst their peers that will help them take deeper steps into the industry. Although the workshop is focused primarily on producing 3D for game art, it is also very handy to film artists, concept artists, students or anyone interested in learning 3D in general.
