In my 3D character modeling class its rancor time! At first I wasnt sure if I wanted to spend the entire semester working on him since everyone had to do the same project. I realized soon enough that this would be just as much a learning process as doing my own character. Im glad i didn't stray. This way I can focus on what is being taught and improving instead of battling differences in design or a new unforseen problem that a different character could have presented. Now that schoolism is done I can focus more on my modeling for both Maya Grandmaster Dave Gustlin's class and then any extra time BFA.

This is my last Schoolism Project EEKKKKK! I still need to work on the background but hey my Teddy the Yeti I think came out well. I highly recommend anyone who needs to learn Photoshop and how to paint with the wacom to take the digital painting class with Bobby Chiu. I learned so much and now feel competent in Photoshop because of it.

DONT SHOOT! a quick lesson in vectorism. I had fun and plan to use this as a quick way to colorize some illustrations later.

Two More projects by Schoolism.

The first is just a tutorial on texturing and lighting and the second is about using the smudge tool to get painterly effects. Both very cool and fun stuff! All the concepts are designed by Bobby Chiu and you learn invaluable photoshop skills with each lesson!
