Course Overview

Let EA Bioware’s Jonathan Rush take you under the hood of the character art 'hot rod' and guide you through the ins and outs of successfully creating video game characters the way the big studios do. Through this intense eight-week class, you will learn by doing. You will learn the successive phases of character creation based on a simulated game studio pipeline, and at the end of the course you’ll have your own unique character creation to show off as part of your folio.


“Game Characters with ZBrush” is an updated version of Jon’s previous “Modern Game Character Creation” workshop. Updates include; full figure massing, hair sculpting, streamlined baking process, introduction and instruction with Topogun (students get a 20% discount per license), and an introduction to the Marmoset real-time viewing app.


This is a great opportunity to work with one of the best and most experienced artists in the business.
