I have learned allot from you, especially from you're intro to sculpting video, it really clicks with me as a zbrush artist in training.

Just a example of the stuff im learning from you're gumroad tutorials. its really helping me understand sculpting in whole new ways.

I hope to get a spot in you're mentorship as soon as its available again.

I can't remember if I already left a fangirl comment over how much I love your stuff.
(If not, here it is!)

I know this is a really broad question, that's usually difficult to answer but..
Do you have any certain processes or inspirations when you're designing inhuman lifeforms?
I'm obsessed with creature design but I can never seem to come up with anything decent on my own. It always ends up looking too forced or too generic..

I understand if you can't think of any specific advice to offer, just a bit fed up with my art block and figured it wouldn't hurt to ask some of my favorite critter creators :b

Thanks madkitty,

Actually, as cliche as it sounds, life drawing at the zoo helps a bunch. Understanding why animals are built the way they are is crucial in pulling from the many options out there. Knowing those reasons / rules also helps you break them and reach out beyond what is commonly scene. Hope this helps!
