We will focus on creature, animal, and monster design and learn intermediate design skills such as anatomy, rendering techniques, lighting and shadow, and environment design. By the end of the class, we'll have several fully developed creatures and backdrops and you'll learn about what it takes to get your audience hooked on your unique and lovable - or not! - creature. Demonstrations and creative prompts will be utilized in this intermediate class. New and continuing students welcome! Hybrid option available upon request.
