CAVIARConnects: Creating Your Creatures & Characters w/ Adam Dewhirst at Unit

Thanks to everyone who joined to check out our very own UNIT Head of Creatures & Characters Adam Dewhirst as part of the new CAVIARConnects series of informal live workshops designed to inspire, share and connect.

This Wednesday from 12.30-1.30pm.

1 hour Z-Brush Show & Tell + Tutorial.

Adam walked all those who joined on ZOOM through the process of designing a bespoke character utilizing the impressive toolkit in ZBrush.

He also went on to create an entirely new creature for an ad brief pitch situation in the space of the one hour virtual session. Exploring how at UNIT Studios we can brainstorm ideas and prototype character designs to a high quality to aid with pitch concepting and winning.

The final creature with its large horns, vibrant colour, and large scale was built throughout the session with the chance for the online audience to name him / her!
