PIXAR Sculpting Class in Singapore Science Centre
Wooh, just got back from Singapore from a short but informative stay there. I attended the PIXAR Sculpting Masterclass, but wouldn't really call it a masterclas since it was only 4 hours long.
It's a shame really, the sculptor present, Jerome Ranft is a veteran sculptor and pixar staff, and in his brief time with us, managed to share a good load of stories and ideologies supporting his career and art. Plus, he was a really nice person, a hearty guy who enjoys eating! I really wish it was an intensive 3 day course.
We were all assigned to create a sculpture bust during that session, and 4 hours is definitely not enough! all i managed to do is make a quick armature and block out the general shape of the sculpt.
But i've learned a good fare of things from this, and i can't wait to share all the emotions behind the sculpting at pixar. Bear with me as i will try to post up pics of the sculpt i did there soon.
cheers and happy sculpting!
