Product description

From the Inside Flap

Todd Palamar began his career creating traditional special effects for low-budget horror movies and quickly gravitated to computer animation, first working on numerous straight-to-video movies and then switching to the video game industry. He has extensive freelance experience, including dozens of military and game-style simulations, corporate commercials, and theme park rides. In addition, he has written several Maya books, including Maya Studio Projects: Photorealistic Characters and Maya Studio Projects: Dynamics. Eric Keller has been a professional 3D artist and high-end animator for film, commercials, and TV for 12 years. He has created animations and effects for Disney, Warner Brothers, ESPN, Harvard Medical School, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and CBS. He currently teaches at the Gnomon School of Visual Effects. Eric is the author of Mastering Autodesk Maya 2011, Maya Visual Effects: The Innovator's Guide, and Introducing ZBrush 4, all from Sybex.
