Learn to sculpt the human face
This class focuses entirely on sculpting the human face. One of the most important things to understand when you are creating a digital star of a movie, video game, or animation is facial landmarks and proper edgeflow to maintain it. You will work alongside a senior character artist to help map out and sculpt the human face. A character's face is the most important area in which the viewer will instantly read, and this class will explore how to create compelling depth in your characters to achieve this look in 3D.
