CREATE SOMETHING MARVELOUS
This practical class is about preparing students to be able to handle complicated cloth creation projects. It covers the full workflow commonly employed in video games from the basics of sketching a garment in Zbrush to recreating it in Marvelous Designer. To this end, a wide range of Marvelous Designer creation techniques will be explored, including a technique referred to as "Virtual Reconstruction" technique, which is based on an approach used by real-life fashion designers. A few Zbrush detailing techniques will also be explored to bring a sense of realism and life to the garments. At the end of the class students will have all the knowledge necessary to create complicated Marvelous Designer garments to a very high quality.
This course will be available in its first term at the introductory price of $699.

Taking your skills to the next level
Laura Gallagher is a former Lead Character Artist, both at Guerrilla Games in Amsterdam and at Eidos Montreal in Canada. She studied 3D at the Canada-based NAD Centre in 2007 and started working at Eidos Montreal shortly after graduating. There, she worked on multiple franchises such as Deus Ex and Tomb Raider for almost ten years while climbing from Junior to Lead. While at Eidos she participated in a collaboration with Open Bionics on the production of real prosthetics for disabled individuals, which is one of the accomplishments she's the proudest of. She left Eidos to work abroad at Guerrilla Games for a few years, eventually leaving in order to try out the freelance life. On top of her twelve years working inside video game studios, she started teaching professionally in 2012 by giving character art classes at NAD, now a brick-and-mortar university. Since then she accumulated a diverse range of other teaching experiences, including giving online workshops, privately mentoring individuals and consulting for studios on how to improve their character creation techniques. She’s always eager to help fellow artists improve themselves and she believes it is key for aspiring artists not only to develop their artistic and technical abilities, but also to develop their critical thinking and problem-solving skills in order to overcome any difficult 3D production and design challenge.

I never used Marvelous Designer before starting this course, but I felt very comfortable using the program by the end of the curriculum. Clothing pieces that seemed much too complicated to make are now much easier to break down and construct.
Really helped to bring my technical skills on a new level.
The best improvement for me was the clarity in pipeline and technique. Typically Marvelous Designer tutorials can have a lot of technical secrets hidden but Laura shows everything and it helps immensely.
