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

Butterflies and friends

  1. Hi Eric!

    Didn't know how else to reach you. Love Mastering Maya 2012 and now working through Maya Visual Effects 2nd Ed.

    FYI--Looking for Max Dayan's scripts in Chapter 1 and 2 folders--there is is no script folder in Chapter 1 and Chapter 2's script folder is empty. Some of the other script folders are empty as well.

    Downloaded the folders at:,miniSiteCd-SYBEX,descCd-DOWNLOAD.html

    Thanks so much for your GREAT books! :-)

  2. ah, not sure what happened but I'll contact the publisher. In the mean time here's a link to a folder with all the scripts in the book:

    Thanks for contacting me!
