I know that posts looking for guidance might not always be the best first post, but here I am anyways!
I stumbled across the tech art field a few months ago and just recently found this community of tech artists (thank god this exists). Resources are really rare and you all seem like a nice and helpful bunch of people! So, I open this thread with the intention to get a bit of a roadmap on how I could get started in the field and what courses I might be able to take.
My current selection is:
- Computer Vision: Computer Vision I – Visual Inference Lab – TU Darmstadt
- Computer Graphics: Technische Universität Darmstadt
- Serious Games (Project-based)
Do you have any other pointers on getting started? Literature would be super welcome. Right now I am unfortunately missing the understanding of most lingo that are being used in the field, like UV, Baking, etc. is there a glossary available somewhere?
I have looked a various job postings, but it is quite overwhelming and it’s hard to extract a good starting point. Any advice is so much appreciated!
Thanks a lot and have great day,
