Rory McLeish featured in 3D World, Broadcast, Multimedia, Games & Animation Technologies

Rory McLeish, one of our Leeds Met Associate Senior Lecturers, has received praise for his work in Games Design by the magazine 3D World, Broadcast, Multimedia, Games & Animation Technologies. In this four page feature entitled 'Effective Concept Prototyping Tips' which runs alongside 'The making of Toy Story 3' there are many top-tips from Rory. He shares his knowledge for creating outstanding creature and vehicle designs in games production with the exploration of sketches, sharpening up those compositions by avoiding image distortion, rendering and layering in Photoshop, and how to present the final character model.
