Day 1: Paul Richards
After a summary of our inspirations and goals as creature designers, we’ll work on keening our sight and thought processes, pointing the way to new discoveries and interpretations.
Group exercises will be employed to pinpoint specific designs and spur on-the-fly thinking, with personal anecdotes and technical drawing pointers liberally interspersed.
Logic and anatomical fact will be balanced by imagination and abstraction as we analyze iconic lifeforms and give rise to new ones.

To bring :
-sketchbook (or any flat surface to draw on your lap)

Day 2: Kurt Papstein
Putting creature design into context and building our toolbox for storytelling and design. Analyzing nature’s rules, and how evolution has built a blueprint for creative design. Moving forward we will discuss building our artistic toolbox and the different roads we can go down when it comes to form vs function.
Knowing the rules and having the right mindset, we will continue the day with live sculpting and group interaction. The best way to understand these lessons is to put them into practice. Using ZBrush we will explore designs, form, and details.
