Adam Fisher is a freelance character artist based in Perth, Australia. He is currently working on the Total War: Warhammer franchise, so you’ll have the opportunity to learn a little bit about his experiences at the Creative Assembly. Alongside that, he will walk you through the making of both his new piece—the “Vampire Noble”—and the Prime 1 Alita statue. Having worked with clients like Arkane Studios, Deep Silver Dambuster Studios, and Infinity Ward, Adam has a lot of industry-ready workflows that an aspiring character modeler can begin using right now. Some of you might even remember learning from his old timelapse videos on YouTube. Back in 2013, they were doing a brilliant job of inspiring a generation of digital artists to take up 3D, too.
Since he was a teenager, Timothy Rodriguez knew he wanted to do digital art. The artist grew up in La Rochelle, France and later moved to Paris where he attended École de communication visuelle – a private design school – before dropping out after one year and starting freelance in the city. He is now an artist with years’ of experience who has worked for several renowned companies like Applibot, Bethesda Softworks and Warner Bros. Rodriguez also had the opportunity to work on popular franchises like The Elder Scrolls among others. Of course, he also works on some great personal art and he will share with us today why this is important for any artist who hopes to be successful.
