From Clay to ZBrush

August 24, 2012

On Friday, August 24, Cascade ACM SIGGRAPH, 3DPDX and ASIFA Portland present ZBrush guru Cesar Dacol Jr., who will show the parallels between traditional and digital sculpting and his latest techniques for bringing concepts to life for games and film.

From Clay to ZBrush is a 3-hour demo guiding participants through the technical aspects of conceiving, preparing and sculpting a high quality digital model. This talk is for computer graphics artists in film, gaming or other industries who are interested in refining their skills, picking up new techniques and renewing their enthusiasm for their craft. It is also for traditional sculptors who want to get involved with the digital medium. And finally, it is perfect for aspiring professional artists who are looking to find more meaning in their work. Cesar will explain how motivation can be channeled into quality work.

A raffle will be held to win fantastic Pixologic prizes donated by 3DPDX, including a copy of Pixologic’s Zbrush and a 1-month membership to ZBrush Workshops.

SuperGenius game studio will be at the event reviewing portfolios and reels. They will be providing feedback for attendees who bring their work.
