Industry veteran, Scott Wright, is working on a brand new course.  This class will deal with how to construct the human head. We’ll go over basic skeleton and muscular systems and what we need to pay attention to when animating human facial features. Over the course you will learn how to rotate a head design 360 degrees and create expressions that work for animators. From there we’ll end by creating a short animation piece of a character reacting to a piece of dialogue off screen.
