ABOUT THIS SERIES
In this webinar series I'll take you through the various stages of the creation process, from planning your project over modelling and UV mapping to rigging, morphing, texturing, rendering and packing up. We will cover each "leg" of this journey in detail and you'll get lots of useful information, tips and tricks. I'll show you various methods and workflows and discuss the pros and cons of each so you can make informed choices for your own personal workflow.
I'm covering the creation process using an upcoming product as an example. I'll show you how to create a suitcase and a duffel bag

Esha's favourite tools include Daz Studio, Poser, ZBrush, Wings3D, Xfrog, Marvelous Designer, UVLayout and Photoshop.
