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

Niche: Experiments in Speculative Entomological Animations

I've updated my short film "Niche" with a new sequence depicting the Cactus Wasp. This is the model I created for my "Hyper-realistic Insect Modeling" lecture I made for the Gnomon workshop. I rebuilt the wings for this sequence, they were too flat in the previous version.

Here are a few still frames that I thought came out kinda nice...
