"Jerad went above and beyond what a normal teacher would do and posted extra videos showing different techniques that couldn't be covered in the 3 hours we had for the class. He took us from sketch to design(photoshop). From highpoly sculpt(ZBrush) to rendering(Keyshot)."
"Class was awesome, we learned how to collect correct references for a 2d design and transfer it into zbrush (I was very new to zbrush but Jerad explained in detail how to use it to sculpt and paint our model. I learned a concrete workflow on how to create a creature from scratch."
"Jerad's class was amazing! He takes you through his complete workflow, with a heavy emphasis on creating unique and believable creature anatomy, based on real world reference and a functional understanding of human and animal anatomy. "

Following Jerad's examples James O'Shea produced quick actionable 2D drawings.
James then took his designs into ZBrush to establish the primary forms just as Jerad taught him.
James O'Shea then fully fleshed out sculpt following Jerad's reviews and critiques.
James O'Shea then completed his course project by rendering it in ZBrush, Keyshot and then painting over that in Photoshop to create his final product.
