My art has been featured on numerous websites and publications, including 3D Artist magazine, and CoastToCoastAM. com. In this course, I'll show you methods I've developed to create a unique fantasy creature using animal reference to help base our character in reality and lend some believability to the design. We'll also cover some methods to create a unique suit of armor and accessories for our creature. By the end of our time together you'll have a deeper insight in the concept, and also expand your skillset, and you'll be able to adapt these methods into your own process to create portfolio ready pieces to show prospective clients and studios, so let's get started.
