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

starting to polypaint my naked lady model and her beasty friend. The colors are helping me to figure out what needs to be fixed on the lady model.


  1. Hey Eric another great job on that one. I read your story and felt very bad. Hope you are fine these days. Your books are always helpful and so are your tutorials. Your works are very inspirational. Great mentor you are Eric. Thanks a lot. Take care buddy.

  2. Hey thanks Deyvn. I have to finish that story at some point but these days I'd rather write about ZBrush. Clearly I'm doing much better now. Regular visits to the doctor for check ups and so far no problems so I'm back to normal for the most part.

  3. I'm very glad you wrote back Eric. I hope you to become completely fit and rocking. There are still so many things to learn from you.I'm a student not doing good though, I've always look to consume knowledge from Gurus like you. Looking forward for your new books and tutorial. Take care buddy.
