Artist Workshop - From Life to Fantasy: Animal Anatomy and Creative Drawing with Bobby Rebholz
This workshop will introduce methods for designing and drawing fantastic creatures using various animal anatomy as observational reference. Participants will gain a firm understanding of the design process, from thumbnail sketches to a refined concept that is ready for commercial application. The workshop will include a live demonstration by Bobby Rebholz and a specially coordinated visit to the Geier Collections and Research Center, where participants will have the opportunity to draw from their extensive 70,000-square-foot facility of zoological specimens.
This workshop will cover the following topics:
- Develop observational drawing skills and learn how to gather reference materials
- Develop an understanding of superficial and skeletal animal anatomy
- How to incorporate elements of fantasy in your design to create novel and believable creatures.
