Join us Friday, January 22nd for an exclusive live demo with character artist and Gnomon alumni Ashley Stegon.

Using a “throwback” drawing from early on in her education, Ashely will show her process of taking a 2D drawing into a 3D software. Viewers will get a close-up look at how traditional art skills relate to making amazing digital art and hear from Ashley about how 3D software is a great medium for artists who like to draw and paint. During this livestream event, our host, Adam Hartel, will also chat with Ashley about her artistic journey, her experience at Gnomon, and her professional career.

Watch the livestream on the Gnomon Twitch Channel, YouTube Channel, and Facebook Live page on Friday, January 15th at 11:00 am PST.

Events with closed captioning are available via the Gnomon Facebook page.


Gnomon's full-time programs and 10-week individual courses are designed to develop well-rounded artists that are skilled in the diverse disciplines within 3D production. For those outside of the US, virtual classroom-style online courses are also available.
