Join us for a new Creature Corner episode as Jared is joined by guest artist Matthew Millard for monster design breakdowns, new artwork, and late-night shenanigans!
This weekly livestream series will give viewers the opportunity to hang out with one of the top creature designers working in the visual effects industry today. Jared has designed several iconic characters that have graced both the big and small screen including Pennywise the Clown in the blockbuster horror film IT, Crooked Man in The Conjuring 2, Dart in Stranger Things 2, and Mechagodzilla for Godzilla vs. Kong.
Every Tuesday night, Jared will bring people into his creature-filled world, sharing sculpting tips in ZBrush, renders in Keyshot, and concept art from his professional projects. He will also feature a Monster of the Week allowing design breakdown discussions of beloved (and likely frightening) creatures from various films, games, and TV shows.
This exciting new series is a great opportunity for artists interested in creatures and concept art to explore design with an industry veteran and learn what it's like to work at a studio and as a freelance artist. Bring your questions and be ready to chat all things creature! Catch up on the first few episodes on our Twitch and YouTube pages!
