No art experience is required to start creating your own assets. These courses provide a step-by-step approach to each program and art style, giving you all the tools and guidance needed to succeed!
Why Create Your Own Assets?
These days, developers have a ton of tools at their disposal – including digital art programs. These popular tools all achieve extremely high rankings, ensuring that with the right skills, you can create high-quality assets and customize the appearance of your game – sometimes without spending a cent.
With the indie game market exploding, there has been an increasing number of successful games where both programming and art were completed by only one or two people!
As all art styles have a stable foothold in different markets and genres (as shown by the Top 200 grossing mobile games), modern developers can be empowered like never before by expanding their skill set to include asset creation!

I love the lectures, concise course objectives, and how they not only teach you enough to get started, but prepare you for the advanced stuff later down the road.
With Zenva, I started learning a more accurate way to approach problems and develop solutions. It’s full of interesting topics that I love to learn in conjunction with my work.
I chose Zenva because of the large selection of topics and the fact that I can choose what courses I want to take whenever I want to take them. That level of freedom is unique to Zenva.
The Unity courses at Zenva helped me achieve a level of comfort with game development that I didn’t think was possible. They give you the confidence to expand your skills, and were so easy to understand.
