Learn 3D figure work from Jeremy Engelman

Monday, June 20th, 2011 | Posted by Jim Thacker

DreamWorks Animation’s Jeremy Engelman has released a new three-hour training DVD on 3D figure work through The Gnomon Workshop.

In Creating a 3D Figure Study, Engelman reveals how to create a rapid ‘gesture painting’ of a female figure, starting from a reference photograph, and using ZBrush, modo, 3D-Coat and Photoshop to build up a fully textured 3D image. The same technique can be used with live models.

The tutorial covers modelling, texturing and lighting; plus converting the piece into a stereoscopic image.

Currently a look development artist for DreamWorks Animation, Engleman previously worked on a range of high-profile games and films, and on projects for Sting and Peter Gabriel.

Creating a 3D Figure Study is available on DVD and as a direct download, price $59.
