Explore the art of digitally sculpting 3D characters in this exclusive livestream with Leticia Gillett! Building on our series of 2D – 3D development, we’re excited to have Leticia demonstrate how she uses a drawing reference to begin sculpting a character in ZBrush. Leticia has brought several characters to the big screen working as a character modeling supervisor at Walt Disney Animation while also teaching character creation here at Gnomon. If you’ve ever been interested in learning about how your drawing skills can translate into digital sculpting, be sure to join us on Friday, February 19th at 11:00am PST for this live demo and Q&A.
