Product Information

  • Required Products: None


In this series, we’ll be discussing a typical concept sculpt workflow within Blender 2.8.

With more than 2.5 hours of content, we’ll be covering topics both beginners and intermediate artists will benefit from.

We’re applying everything we’ve learned over the past 13 years and simplifying it in an easy to follow and digestible format.


We’ll be tackling a lot of common mistakes beginners tend to make when sculpting. As well as give you the tools you need to be able to approach a ‘blank canvas’ and in the end create something that looks appealing and realistic.


Many of the ideas and concepts we cover, focus on fundamentals and how you can apply the anatomy of the face to an alien character.

We share many similarities, and once that clicks, you will be able to tweak and adjust the anatomy of your own concepts.

This series is fully narrated and is a mix of real-time and time-lapsed footage. The time-lapsed parts tend to be the more repetitive aspects of sculpting. So everything is tailored to give you the best possible learning experience.
