Last semester I taught a ‘topics course’ called Advanced 3D Modeling. In this class we used Z-Brush, Maya and Photoshop to push 3D modeling and 3D animation a little further. This class is for students who have already taken the Maya 3D Modeling class.
If you are interested in taking this class you will need to contact me, because it is not a regularly scheduled course. My goal is to include this course in the regular schedule in the near future.
