25 January 2010

Milon de Crotone by Scott EatonOn March 1st, 2nd and 3rd 2010, the NAD Centre is offering a two-day master class with Scott Eaton on traditional artistic anatomy for digital artists followed by a one-day practical workshop based on a digital figure creation process using ZBrush.

Anatomy for Digital Artists Master Class on March 1st and 2nd: This workshop is specifically designed to teach the fundamentals of traditional artistic anatomy and how this knowledge is applied to character design, modeling, rigging, and animation. Each lecture draws heavily on lessons from the great masters and combines them with photography and medical imaging data to show how a complicated anatomy can be broken down into functional shapes and mechanisms. A comprehensive look at all the muscles of the body, regular critiques of images, frequent exercises will enable students to apply their knowledge. This workshop will take place in Montreal at the NAD Centre, and will offer 30 seats for 3D professional artists who want to acquire a solid foundation in anatomy that will allow them to better face the anatomical challenges they encounter in their work. The cost of the two-day training is $650 and includes the reference material and lunch. More info: http://www.centrenad.com/en/corporate/seminars/anatomy

 Digital Figure Sculpture in ZBrush Master Class on March 3rd:

female Figure Study by Scott EatonThis workshop is designed to teach 3D artists how to apply the fundamentals of traditional artistic anatomy to the creation process of a figure. During the morning session, the artists will sculpt a figure using ZBrush by setting up a workflow, building a base mesh, establishing the main planes of the body and defining skeletal landmarks. The afternoon session will allow them to refine the figure by adjusting proportions and small muscles in order to bring the model to life. This workshop will take place in Montreal at the NAD Centre, and will offer 12 seats for 3D professional artists who want to acquire practical creation process experience in anatomy. The cost of the training is $395 and includes the reference material and lunch. For participants who registered for the Anatomy for Digital Artists workshop the cost will be $295.
