WITH MICHAEL HAMPTON.
OCTOBER 21 - 23, 2016

WORKSHOP

ANIMAL
ANATOMY FOR CREATURE AND CHARACTER DESIGN

THE TEACHER

Figure drawing and anatomy educator - Anatomy Tools, Lucas Arts

Michael Hampton is an artist and long-time educator in the fields of figure drawing, anatomy, and two- dimensional design...

Fundamental to creature/character design is an understanding of biology and anatomy. This knowledge allows for a fictional creature/character to feel familiar by filtering in enough “real-life” believability to connect with an audience.


This workshop will cover the skeleton structure, design, and anatomy of the 4 key species (dog, cat, horse, cow) in order to establish an anatomical design language for use in developing that which does not exist. This workshop has the dual emphasis of teaching animal drawing and providing foundational information to aspiring creature designers.
