Jelmer Boskma: Symmetry Sketching in Zbrush

Showcase of a special technique, based around the Rorschach effect that occurs when staring at symmetrical imagery, of developing creature designs in Zbrush using a 2D approach with polypainting. Digital Sculptor Jelmer Boskma will prepare you to let go of the reigns and let the drawing take control of the concept!

Craig Mullins': "Paint" is an unfortunate metaphor for digital art.

Craig will be doing some paint demo and speak to a few points about art education!
