OSCAR AWARD-WINNING SPECIAL MAKEUP EFFECTS ARTIST RICK BAKER JOINS GNOMONOLOGY.COM WITH TWO NEW TUTORIALS


February 19, 2008 Hollywood, CA - Gnomonology is very pleased to announce two new on-line tutorials by Oscar Award-Winning Special Makeup Effects Artist Rick Baker. These two timelapse demonstrations represent an amazing opportunity to watch a master sculptor at work.


African Woman -

This demonstration is a four hour timelapse of the entire making of the African Woman by Rick Baker. There is no audio. Rick begins with a simple humanoid torso basemesh from which he sculpts the woman. The final result consists of several subtools that originate from mesh extractions. The demo is made with Zbrush 3.0 beta, therefore the interface looks a little different from the final release.


The Biker -

This video is a 97 minute timelapse demonstrating the entire making of the Biker by Rick Baker. There is no audio. Rick begins with a simple humanoid torso basemesh from which he sculpts the biker. The final result consists of several subtools that originate from mesh extractions. The demo is made with Zbrush 3.0 beta, therefore the interface looks a little different from the final release.
