3D Model of the Eiffel Tower

Zackary Murray, 3D Modeler, Senior

This piece of work shows off my skills in Autodesk Maya and my passion for architecture. I graduated this May with an MAGD major and Digital Marketing minor and I hope to use the skills I’ve learned in school in a real world setting, possibly marketing, possibly architecture based. I hope you enjoy my piece, and thank you for this opportunity.

The Art of Project Terra

Nikkos Horaitis, Rigger, Senior; Sara Joyce, Artist/Animator, Senior; Tessa Joyce, Artist/Animator, Senior; Austin Lange, Technical Artist/Rigger, Senior.

Hello, we are the artists of Project Terra, a video game created for our MAGD 488 Capstone project. Project Terra is a short game that demonstrates a PvE boss fight. The art shown here displays early character concept art, in-game animations and 3D models, and the unused boss character that was cut from the game due to time constraints. Sara and Tessa were able to fulfill the roles they wish to have in the games industry as concept artists, and Nikkos, a hopeful animator, worked with rigging and motion capture. Austin was able to practice technical and 3D environmental art during this project

Ms. Walker

Lou Jensen, Artist, Senior

While I’ve done some 3D modeling before, I was very excited to be introduced to Zbrush this semester. I feel like sculpting in this program was a better way for me to capture the look of my drawn characters than typical modeling. As a disclaimer, this model is not rigged, and the poses are separate sculpts made from the same base.

This piece shows off my skills using Autodesk Maya as well as my passion for architecture. I hope to get a job in the world of architecture in the future to continue working working around what I enjoy. I hope you enjoy my piece.


Thanks to our Sponsors and the College of Arts and Communication for supporting our

MAGD Expo 2024

We hold multiple game jams a year where students across the program collaborate in 48 hour sessions to complete mini projects.

Students earn credit with our Game Jams course held multiple times a semester.

Students design their own senior projects. Kalei shows her UI/UX design to Dean Hayes.

Our students can gain experience making games in virtual reality. 

Our students also gain experience creating games for alternative controls. Luke and Nicole are showing off their mid-air haptic feedback rhythm game.

Motion capture can bring your VR, AR, Motion Graphic to life. We have a new suit- and marker-based system.

Our annual summer camp brings in future students from 8th grade to seniors in high school to campus for a week of game development.

Nathan creates sound and audio for games. Courses in electronic music help make that happen.

Students can bring their own drawing tablets or check out equipment for their use.
