In this course you’ll work directly with Ryan Kingslien to improve your anatomy and learn the anatomy lessons that everyone else skips. This is a live 8 week master class with weekly live broadcasts where he gives you demonstrations, reviews your work, and answers your questions. You’ll spend around six to 9 hours a week sculpting and resculpting your work and going through the exercises assigned.
Even with just a beginners level of understanding, Ryan will guide you to focus on the essential morphology and artistic anatomy principles inside of ZBrush that will make an immediate difference in your work. The key, you’ll learn, is to focus on morphology more than the actual insertions and origins of muscles. To see the big shapes and be able to move those big shapes to help you create dynamic figures.
In this course you’ll get the same high level anatomy training that Ryan has given to studios and students for nearly a decade.
It is important to stress here that not all anatomy training is created equal. One of the most common problems in learning anatomy is that most courses go directly to muscles and bones with little attention paid to the fundamental building blocks of artistic anatomy. Artists will focus on the placement of the bicep without paying attention to the overall shape of the arm.
The result? The anatomy becomes hyper focused and your sculpts look like flayed figures or the proportions get out of whack because we’ve been focused on the trees instead of the forest.
In short, when we focus on muscles and bones it is VERY easy to get lost and succumb to the Valley Of The Suck! You know the place, right? It’s that moment when you decide that you’re work isn’t good enough and that, maybe, YOU are not good enough…
But the real problem is that you’ve been looking at trees to understand the forest and what you have to do is to learn how to see the forest first and then see the trees.
