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

Frog Darwin

I'm taking John Bown's Sculpture 3 class at Gnomon. It's taken me 8 years to finally find the time to complete the 3 courses! In this class we pick a type of animal out of a hat. I got ambhipians (the guy next to me got insects....d'oh!). We have to create an anthropomorphic character design based on an historical figure. I chose Charles Darwin (although I also have versions based on E O Wilson). After many bad sketches and failed attempts I did a series of photobashes (green inset) and came up with a design I liked. Of course I've done some ZBrush versions as well... how could I not. This week we start sculpting the design in earnest using clay. I hope it comes out well. here is the design as it stands right now. Click to enlarge.
