The Gnomon Workshop released three DVD titles on Dec. 15, 2004, dedicated to understanding the complexity and power of Pixologic's ZBrush. Accomplished artists Meats Meier and Zack Petroc take the artist through the basics and intricacies of this remarkable digital sculpting tool.
Eric Hanson, senior producer for The Gnomon Workshop, enthused, "We are very excited about these first titles from these incredible artists. Meats is a great teacher, and his work has received numerous awards. Having finished supervising the models on SKY CAPTAIN AND THE WORLD OF TOMORROW, Zack is working as the model supervisor and art director on director Kerry Conran's next feature: JOHN CARTER OF MARS. These titles mark the first of several exciting additions to The Gnomon Workshop digital library."
