Create accurate biomedical models
This is an introductory course for the scientist and artist who would like to know how to use both scientific and 3D skills for the representation of biomedical / chemical representations in the field of scientific illustration. If you've ever wondered if the images of DNA strands floating in suspension you see on the covers of science magazines are real, the answer is, of course, that they are not—they are CG models. But are they accurate? Very possibly so, and if you're a scientist or researcher wanting to create realistic, anatomically correct and appealing 3D images of biological particles (including molecules, parts of molecules, blood cells, blood clots, DNA and more), then you need this fully online and fully mentored 8-week course. Moving through the weeks, Giorgio will work with you on the best way of importing CT scanned biological items (bones, brains etc). You'll look at lighting, shading, and the best ways of making your 3D images look great. Towards the end of the course, you'll work one-on-one with Giorgio on the basics of particle dynamics in imagery. By the end of the course, you'll have several biologically-based 3D images and the beginnings of a portfolio.

The more you know, the better.
Bringing out the best in talent
Giorgio is a scientist with a variety of interests. He currently work as a researcher at the Italian National Council of Research (CNR) on topics devoted to the characterization and development of new materials. Luciano graduated in chemistry in 1999 with a thesis on magnetic behaviour of ternary compounds based on rare earth elements. After several years working in the chemical industry in an R & D lab he returned to university to do a PhD in chemical sciences in 2005. During his PhD he spent some time studying at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, and this influenced his passion for art. He has used 3DSMax since version 4.03, and participated in the CGTALK hardcore modelling challenge competitions since IV challenge (2003).

He is a passionate, generous person—exactly type of professional you would want giving training. I really enjoyed his personality and the way he approached the students. He was always positive and encouraging every submission, and every quality level.
