Digital Sculpture with Richard Durant

The course will focus on the process of building a character. To do this, different concepts will be introduced to the student using certain digital design programs (Photoshop and ZBrush). The student will also learn to work from the imagination, creating creatures and objects that do not exist.

This course offers in-depth knowledge of Zbrush digital sculpture software, and how it can be integrated into the conceptual design workflow within the entertainment industry. Not only will it focus on Zbrush learning as a software, it will also cover the practice of digital sculpture, by designing and modeling unique characters and creatures arising from the student’s imagination.
