    Experience the entire workflow of Hollywood creature designer Jordu Schell as he makes a monster maquette from imagination. In this lesson, you’ll learn all the materials and supplies needed to build an armature, basic clay application techniques, the importance of choosing a pose, and tips for sculpting hands, head, and tail. Jordu emphasizes the need to integrate each part of your maquette into the whole. For instance, a tail cannot simply be patched onto your maquette– it needs to match the balance of the creature’s pose, have it’s own underlying anatomy, and have structural assimilation into the creature’s back.
