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

New Maya Tutorial on Maya fluids and Coral Nematocysts has published my latest video tutorial on Maya fluids as part of a series that covers Maya fluid dynamics. Evan Ingersoll and Rachel Davidowitz (two of my esteemed colleagues) authored the sections on nParticles and Bifrost while I discuss Maya fluid containers and cool fluid emission techniques. As an example I use an coral nematocyst animation that demonstrates the firing mechanisms found in the tentacles of coral polyps. Maya fluids are used to illustrate the venom as it is injected into the coral's prey. Check out the trailer on
