Rhino Guy by Herr-Sandslott Rhino Guy by Herr-Sandslott
A bust made out of polymer clay that I created during Jordu Schell's Creature Design class at Visualarium. The rhino-guy measures about 6" (15cm) tall from tip of horn to bottom of neck.

Not in person but through online courses. One spanned 10 weeks where we spoke 5 times as he gave me crit on the work (Rhino Guy and Kagar) and another through a 9-hour marathon online video conference where I and a handful others sculpted alongside Jordu on a very busy and hectic saturday almost a year ago. It was extremely challenging, just as fun (Mara). It is a wonderful time to learn with the booming online education systems being made available in a way people only dreamed about some 20 years ago :)

I love Jordu's work and style and voice impersonations. He's a very awesome artist/designer. Only managed to see his Gnomon Workshop DVD. Maybe one day, if i'll afford it, i would love to take a course of his. All in all, your work is awesome! :) Waiting to see some more stuff!

Thanks man! Well, here's the deal. I didn't. I used my fingertips, some rubber-pointed brushes, some regular paint-brushes and a lot of patience. No solvent whatsoever :)

Sweet! I'm glad you liked them. I went for a hybrid design and had some trouble nailing them down.

One of my favourite times of the day is when I stroll through the train station on my way to or from work. It is always bustling with activity when I do and a stream of people go about their business. Imagining what kind of animal they would be if they weren't human is a fun game to play. Or what kind of primitive shape that would depict their current stance and mood. Anything that projects character. It is a good and enjoyable way to training the mind as it automatically picks up visual queues and anatomical land-marks subconsciously as I go about playing the game.

Jordu is awesome. Carefree and easy going on one side and to the point down to business on another. It was well worth the investment. Getting feed-back from an industry legend while pushing yourself beyond every zone of comfort and really going for it sure makes a huge difference. It feels like I've leveled up more than once during these past two months from that alone.

man, i'm so jealous. where does one go to get updates/alerts for classes like that? i'm not too far from LA, though i did visit the visualarium website, didn't see much about registering or schedules for Jordu.

I think you can sign up to get e-mail announcements for upcoming free seminars which are introductory to coming classes. It was a fairly brief period and I'm glad I took the chance. Hopefully he'll consider more classes in the future.
