Course objectives
Building upon Art Anatomy I, the main aim of the course is to capture the character; students independently work with human proportions, typologies, deformations, etc. in 3D modeling programs. The work on individual projects is complemented by lectures on deliberate deformation and idealization of a human figure, beauty, and fashion, combining atropomorphic and zoomorphic aspects within the frame of character formation. Students are led to independent creative work. An important part is also the preparation of the virtual model for the rapid prototyping (STL Check, retropologisation, optimization).
Learning outcomes
A capability of standalone work with visual modelling tools.

Teaching methods
During the semester students are working independently on their projects under the supervision of the teacher. The course offers lectures explaining the possibilities of the interpretation of the character.
Assessment methods
Lectures and assignments in the studio, 3D software exercises. Exam. Evaluated is the final project, the student consults this project with the teacher in the exam term on the given dates. The evaluation is based on the quality of the concept, knowledge of the software and artistic input.
Language of instruction
English
