In the first of two DVDs, Aaron Sims illustrates the techniques he uses when designing creatures for movies. As the character’s facial features are the first and most important part of designing characters in film, this DVD concentrates on creating the character head. Using Photoshop, XSI and ZBrush, Aaron shows you how to accomplish stunning designs that can be easily altered for other designs. Speed is an important aspect of character design in production, which Aaron demonstrates by showing you how his process helps you design within a production environment.
