'Where's Waldo?' - Prometheus

Our AnatomyMale was spotted in the Prometheus article. A great addtion to our "where's waldo?" section. Fans found our 'Male v1' in the studio of Neil Scanlan's creatureFx department working on sculptures for Ridley Scott's Prometheus. Quite an honor! Martin Rezard is pictured sculpting a bust of the creature from a Carlos Huante's concept sketch, V1 anatomy male is in the background on the left. :)

Tabzu! - Cool new iPad / Tablet holder for digital painting, life drawing & Sculpting staff tried out prototypes this week of the new ‘Tabzu’ computer tablet holder. Thought we'd share it with you as it's designed by artists to hold both your tablet and leg comfortably while you're working, so you can sketch & design hands free. We purchased a bulk order with custom covers, for our life drawing and sculpting classes. CEO & artist, Andrew Cawrse is pictured trying out the prototype: “Awesome new accessory, it's been great to use working from the model or just drawing on the couch”. Also You can have your own artwork as custom covers, plus see The Artist Series covers, featuring vfx legend Phil Tippett's MAD GOD, Tony DiTerlizzi & Jean-Baptiste Monge.  visit their kickstarter page>
