During this course, students will learn what makes the face look as it does—the underlying structures of the skull, muscles, fat tissue, and other structures such as glands which create and affect the forms of the face. Without a base mesh, but starting from scratch to get a better understanding of all the layers laid on top of each other. Once that knowledge is established, we will go deeper into what makes the portrait alive and tell a story.
Coming from a traditional drawing and graphics background as well as classical animation, Dmitrij, discovered his interest in 3D (ZBrush in particular) 9 years ago, which he pursued on his own. For the majority of his professional career he has worked as a medical illustrator, but never abandoned his love for portraying people, only transferring it to a new medium. He has worked on all kinds of projects; models for print, animation, commercials, movies and games. He currently works as a Lead Character Artist at Digital Dimension.

By going over the fundamentals of the face and each layer that comes on top of it, this course has helped me get a greater understanding of the work methods, shape language, and observation skills for making faces.
Helped gain more confidence when doing a facial sculpt, the knowledge gained from the course decreased the guessing when sculpting and when translating references to 3D
I attended a 3D school before but through this course I learned so much more technical stuff, it really helped that we had such an experienced instructor!
