Today, we are launching two brand new online courses. One is an advanced ZBrush course for professionals; the other is a Character Animation course for 3D novices.
ZBrush for 3D Artists is the most extensive course of its kind we have ever produced and takes you through all the new features in version 3.5 to 4.0 of ZBrush. We really have gone a bit mad with this one: it includes nearly 30 hours of training and contains over 200 HD video tutorials. It is the complete ZBrush bible for professionals; a course which you can complete in 2 weeks, 2 months or a year if you're doing the odd hour each evening. The important bit is that with all our online courses, you'll get 12 months access so you can study as quickly or slowly as you want. ZBrush is now one of the fundamental modelling tools in the 3D pipeline. 3D artists who want to stay ahead of the pack need to master it – this course is your chance to gain a competitive advantage.
Our other new course is called Character Animation Foundation and was, developed by Pixar veteran Jeff Pratt specifically for character artists who are new to 3D and to Maya. It takes you through the key animation principles step by step to give you the confidence you need to start animating your characters. It explains everything from walk cycles to facial expressions - laying the groundwork for successful animation. If you're an aspiring animator, this 5-hour course is the best place to start learning.
