Join us for an event with War, Pestilence, Famine, and Death (through the eyes of Keos Masons Co-founder Marco Plouffe)! Marco will share his recent collection piece, The Four Horsemen, and give an exciting presentation on how the harbingers of the Neo Apocalypse came to life.

Our host, Gnomon Chief Creative Officer Josh Herman, will talk with Marco as he breaks down his process for designing series characters through blocking, sculpting, and posing models in ZBrush. He will also share some of his other artwork and sketches, and give viewers an inside look into his workflow and vision.

As a character artist, Marco worked for several major studios before co-founding his own outsourcing company that provides character modeling and concept design services for the video game, movie, and collectible industries. Along with his co-founder Cédric Séaut, and a team of skilled artists, they have worked on groundbreaking games including Overwatch, Fortnite, Paragon, and Baldur's Gate 3. During this livestream, Marco will share his journey as an artist and answer any questions viewers have about design, sculpting, getting started, or owning your own company.

Watch the stream on the Gnomon Twitch Channel, YouTube Channel, and Facebook Live on Friday, July 30th at 11:00 am PDT.
