“In this course we will fully develop two to three creatures, using a method of guided creativity while grounding our designs with real-world plausibility. Students will learn early stage ideation, concept development, methods of detailing and defining character and finally, rendering and color techniques to create new and original creatures from the blank page all the way to a finished portfolio piece. We will begin by covering naturalistic and grounded earthly creatures and progress all the way to creatively designed aliens.
