Concept Design Academy

Was recently invited by good friend, colleague and ZBrush teacher Bryan Wynia to speak in his ZBrush class at the Concept Design Academy in Pasadena and do a presentation on designing statues. Bryan and I are collaborating on many ZBrush collectible statues together so this was a great opportunity to share my approach on both traditional and now digital sculpting. This is a great school showcasing teachers from all over the industry. Check out the class schedule above. They have a great setting and artist friendly facilities. I highly recommend attending this school and taking advantage of all they've got to offer. I got a chance to meet a group of very talented students and we discussed principles that I use in drawing and animation, like silhouette, gesture, rhythm, overlap, follow through, dynamic posing and most importantly story telling. They were in the process of building their own version of Smaug, so Bryan had me come up with a few designs during the presentation. Thanks for the invite Bryan, really fun!
