Sculpting Animals With Steve Lord


Release date:2014, September

Author: Steve Lord

Skill level:Beginner


Exercise files:Yes

Description : Sculpting creatures, both real and imaginary, requires a deep understanding of animal anatomy, from basic structures to the most complex tissue connections. Improving these skills is a challenging obstacle for many artists, but at the same time, they are absolutely invaluable experiences. In this all-new masterclass from legendary sculptor Steve Lord, you will learn how to cope with all the challenges of sculpting anatomically complex animals, and create unrealistically believable and realistic creatures in ZBrush.

The 5 most important lessons:
1. Understanding how to dynamically sculpt biologically accurate animal anatomy.
2. How to sculpt detailed figures using advanced techniques.
3. How to sculpt stunning and detailed fantasy creatures using real-world animal anatomy.
4. How to sculpt the anatomy of a horse and dog from start to finish.
5. Sculpting and understanding the muscular and skeletal structure of animals.
