Sculpt your favorite creatures in virtual reality using Oculus Medium. Starting from reference, students will create a rig skeleton, build up the main armature, then add muscles layers and finally the surface detail. This 4-hour crash course is taught by 3D artist Glen Southern and will demonstrate speed and fluidity of VR creative tools. All equipment, basic training, reference material and models will be supplied.

About Oculus Medium

Oculus Medium is an immersive creative tool that lets you sculpt, model, and paint digital assets in a virtual reality environment. Create expressive works of art where the limitations of the flat 2D screen no longer apply. With the Oculus Rift, your authentic gestures and movements form a natural, tactile experience, giving you the closest you can get to traditional sculpting in a digital creative tool. With the power of the Medium’s versatile toolkit, the potential for artistic creation is boundless.
