Me: Eric Keller

Hi and welcome to my Blog. This is a hastily compiled record of my digital art and computer graphics experiments. I am a freelance CG artist living and working in Hollywood CA. I have written several books on Maya and ZBrush. Below my blog you'll find links to the books and tutorials I have authored and co-authored. I also occasionally teach at the Gnomon School of Visual Effects in Hollywood.I named my blog "Bloopatone" in honor of my first dog "Blue". She passed away a few years ago and I still miss her even though she was very grouchy and liked to bite me!

I'm proud to be an instructor at The Gnomon School of Visual Effects in Hollywood. Take a look at the work of our students and instructors on the Gnomon School Blog and the Gnomon Workshop Blog

She has a great personality

Ok, she's a homely little thing but she's a real sweetie (and by that I mean she tastes sweet). Once again, modeled in ZBrush, rendered in Modo with light compositing in Photoshop. I'm not happy with the wings but I like the rest and I need to move on. I'll probably revisit the wings later on.


  1. alway love your works!!
    two thumbs up!!
    however, why did you chnage 3d application maya to modo?? I am big fan of your book...

  2. no I haven't dropped Maya, I just like to experiment with other rendering engines as away to expand my skills. Modo is fast and easy and usually looks great. I currently only render in Modo but I will start modeling more when I get some time. I'm also learning V-Ray for Maya. Thanks for the comments!
