I just wanted to post here about the 3d game environment class that I will be giving in Montreal starting next January :)
It will be a 10-week long (1 3hour class per week) class/workshop which will include lots of cool stuff needed to create a full environment in an efficient and relatively fast way. The final result will be assembled in UDK (God, where else lol :)) using some fancy texturing techniques etc.
Here is an official class page and school contact info in case if someone would be interested ;)
