    PORTFOLIOS: Entry into the Advanced Diploma of Creative Product Development (2D or 3D Concept Art) is by application, which includes a portfolio review.
    The course includes some common core subjects and two groups of specialist electives to encourage students to develop a deeper set of skills in either 2D digital concept art or 3D digital concept art.

    The 2D electives focus on drawing and painting skills (both traditional and digital) and are an excellent choice for students who are artistically minded with good drawing skills looking to develop more specialised skills and knowledge to become a digital 2D artist for feature films, TV and games. Stronger portfolios for applicants interested in these 2D electives usually include drawings, sketches or paintings of real-world objects, people and places.

    The 3D electives focus on digital 3D modelling, texturing, and games artistry skills and are an excellent choice for students who are technically minded and comfortable using visual art and design software and who are looking to develop specialised skills to become a 3D artist for feature films, TV games and virtual reality. Stronger portfolios for applicants interested in these 3D electives usually include digital paintings and designs and any real-word or digital 3D creative work.

    Portfolios should be submitted digitally as a web/blog URL, as scans or photos via email to or on a USB.
