This course will cover all aspects of bringing an idea out of your head, to creating something with your own hands that is truly interactive. Production steps include concept design, pre-production, multi-material application/allocation, engineering design and application, shop safety, base formation, machining, fabrication and alternatives, nernies and grebles, mold making, gadgets, gags, paint/faux finishes and other "weird science" tricks of the trade.

ZBrush to Photoshop: Character Design Tutorial
Instructor: Scott Spencer
In this tutorial, Scott Spencer shows a professional workflow for creature design using Pixologic ZBrush and Adobe Photoshop, using ZBrush to develop ideations on a creature head. Attention is given to design, shape relationships, physiology, and character.
This character sculpture is taken to a finish using quick sculpting techniques Scott has developed to help in creating dynamic character designs under tight deadlines. The sculpture is then rendered and exported to Photoshop where a final pass of color and atmosphere is applied to tie the design together into a cohesive whole, ready for presentation to a director.
