In the workshop, Weiss explores how to take a creature design from initial idea to production-ready asset.

Beginning with a simple idea – a hybrid chameleon/bat creature – Weiss sets out how to refine the design and block out the model based on real-life references, sculpting natural-looking shapes in ZBrush.

He then reveals his unique techniques for creating high-resolution scales and wrinkles, all sculpted by hand.

Finally, Weiss retopologises the model in Maya, to ready it for texturing and character rigging.
