What You'll Be Creating

In our latest course, Creating Animal-Inspired Fantasy Creatures, you'll learn how to use Adobe Photoshop to create two animal-inspired fantasy creatures. 

What You’ll Learn

Starting with realistic animal design principles, you will learn how to incorporate animal design into a believable fantasy creature. Then you will learn how to use photos to give texture to your fantasy creature and bring it to life for movie, video game or even television productions!

Tuts+ instructor Char Reed will show you the full process for creating two fantasy creatures: a gryphon and a werewolf. Along the way she'll give you tips on animal anatomy, how to use references to inform your art, and how to use photo textures to create a more realistic-looking creature.
