    Please reply to this thread with any questions that you’d like to be answered in Week 1’s Livestream. Whether you’re wondering about the workshops curriculum or format, weekly schedules, workflow, or any questions for me like,“Who is this buffoon teaching me about building characters?”.

    NOTE: You will have the ability to type questions during the livestream, but anything you have in mind ahead of time is always good for me to prepare a response or brief demonstration.

    When planning a completely new character, do you draw it on a concept first like a 2d template. or just start sculpting away? or do you gather different reference pics from the items you are going to put into character and then start sculpting?

    @Kaj: I’ll try not to respond to this thread much so it can be an organized collection of questions. But it felt anti-social to not acknowledge your reply lol – “Great question” is what I mean to say!

    Hey Kent,

    do you think it would be possible to additionally provide the video lessons as files, as on the cookie site? I’m asking because I’m commuting by train for 2-3 hours a day – that would be a great opportunity to watch the videos, but I don’t have internet access on the train.
    I often download cg cookie courses to watch on my laptop, but during the workshop being able to watch the video lessons before getting home would be great and really save time to do the actual sculpting 🙂

    Thanks,

    Philippe

    When exactly are the homework assignments due? “By Thursday” leaves a lot of room for interpretation.

    @akoaih: By the end of the day Thursday, regardless of timezone. Just so that when I get to work Friday I have all submissions ready for feedback.

    Hi Kent,

    maybe you can explain how you present your WIP sculptures to others. My workflow is like adding a hdri, 3 point light, a plane for the ground, camera and a basic shader for the whole sculpture. Is this the way you suggest doing it? Or do you prefer OpenGL renderings with Matcaps? I feel like I’m doing it not right spending about 15 minutes only for this WIP setup.

    Looking forward to see you tonight!

    Hey Kent – quick question: On the workshop page it says that the livestream starts at 6pm EST (GMT-4) – are you sure that EST is GMT-4? The internet always lists EST as GMT-5 (12am in GMT+1), so I’m not sure whether the stream will start at 11pm or 12am my time (CET)…
    Just post your current local time if you read this and I’ll know when to arrive!

    Thanks a lot!

    @philippe: Ahh good call. I think I didn’t account for daylight savings that occurred a couple days ago – You’re right it should be GMT-5. Here’s a link to a website event thing that should be trustworthy: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=BWS01+Week+1+Livestream&iso=20151103T18&p1=212&ah=2

    PS – I will update the Livestream page.

    Do you see any downside to 3D scanning a base mesh for sculpting?

    I think class starts in 20 minutes. I haven’t gotten a link for the livestream. I’m not sure how this whole things supposed to work.
