See Anatomy Lab: Designing Creatures for Film


Gnomon School of Visual Effects has announced Anatomy Lab: Designing Creatures for Film – a free event at the school’s Hollywood campus next Saturday, 25 July promising an afternoon of anatomy tips and tricks.

Practical advice from leading production artists
The event kicks off with a session on perfecting animal anatomy by sculptor Steve Lord, whose client list ranges from Rhythm & Hues and Oddworld Inhabitants to McFarlane Toys.

As well as core anatomical principles, Lord will show how to add second- and third-order details to a model.

In the second half of the afternoon, Avengers and Hunger Games concept artist Ian Joyner will discuss concepting for films, walking through the creation of a bird-like creature, including modeling plumage.

As in the first session, Joyner, a veteran of both Blur Studio and Legacy Effects, will discuss his personal techniques for adding the final details necessary to perfect the finish of a model.

Register for the live event, or watch the sessions online
Anatomy Lab runs from 12-4pm on 25 July. Entry is free, but you’ll need to register online in advance, and seating is allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you can’t make it to Hollywood in person, Gnomon will also be livestreaming the entire event online.
