IndiaSkills 2018. India’s biggest skill competition held in New Delhi from 2nd to 6th October. This 5-day biennial competition is an initiative of National Skill Development Corporation.
This year, more than 400 competitors from 27 Indian states showcased their talents in over 46 skill categories. Our Art Director, Mr. Amitabh juried in one such category, 3D Digital Game Art.”Every participant was given the task to create a game-ready digital character. Right from scratch to the final animated asset within the allotted time.”, he described.
3D Digital Game Art is a wide field that is broken down into 2D concept art and 3D modeling, texture painting, rigging, and animating. In other words, a participant is required to produce a 2D digital concept of the mentioned asset using the design brief provided. Therefore, evaluation of his technical and artistic skills are done from the initial level itself.
The skill may require a lot from the participants but it pays off well in the end. Meaning, the winners of IndiaSkills every year are given sponsored training to prepare and represent India in WorldSkills. Wordskills is organized in every 2 years where participants from all over the world come together to showcase their skills, it will be held in Kazan, Russia in 2019.
