Creatures in Motion (Using Maya)

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS AN ONLINE CLASS

This 8-week intermediate class will cover animal anatomy and workflow in Autodesk Maya for photoreal creature animation using a feline rig. We start with laying in key poses and then work from the spine out to the toes and tail. Along the way, you will learn about principles of quad locomotion and how to refine and add important details to your walk so that it looks and feels like a photoreal jungle cat.
