Design a portfolio ready character for film/games
This class will focus on designing humanoid aliens in subtle costumes similar to projects Jerad works on from DC and Marvel. The process will start in Photoshop and will model the character out in Zbrush with a final render in Keyshot. This class will go beyond the typical class demo style work to a finished portfolio piece that will be included in Jerad’s portfolio, so students get to see every step and tweak made to make the work presentable at the professional level. The class is live every week.
