We are excited to share the premiere episode of Archetype with Josh Herman! This new, weekly livestream series will focus on the 12 literary archetypes, which help foster a sense of familiarity between characters and audiences. Each month, Josh will feature a character type (the hero, the outlaw, the ruler, the jester, etc.) and walk viewers through the entire creative process of character design resulting in a new, complete character!

Josh is no stranger to groundbreaking character design. As a digital sculptor, he has worked on some of the biggest movies over the past decade including Guardians of the Galaxy, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok, and Avengers: End Game. Josh is also a seasoned instructor and will answer viewer questions and provide insight into how to stay inspired, creative, and innovative when approaching a new character design.

If you're interested in character creation and want to learn the step-by-step process of bringing an idea to life, you won't want to miss the new, weekly series!
