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

Bulldog Ant

This is a model I originally started in Sculptris 2 years ago! I finally touched her up in ZBrush and rendered in Maya/mental ray 2014. I think she works as a chef in a teeny tiny ant version of Benihana. She has hair but it came out a little too thin I think. still a work in progress.


  1. Im working on very same ant right now :) but i dont think i will create something this awesome like you. Good job

  2. Took me many tries to get it up to this point and it still ain't perfect! Only way to do it is to do it!
