Press Release: KURV studios Releases Advanced Cartoon Series

For Immediate Release – February 23, 2009, KURV studios announces the release of their Advanced Cartoon Series with the first video, Head Modeling.

This is the first video in a large series on Advanced Cartoon Character creation. This video series from KURV studios is unlike any training ever done for LightWave 3D. We started with a character from PushPen Studios. An extremely professional character just like one you would be handed at studios like Dreamworks or Pixar Animation Studios.

Then we take the character and professionally model, texture, rig, animate and work a little LightWave 3D magic with dynamics.

In this video, we show you how to model Chris Phoenix's head from his chiseled chine to his extreme style hair. This video is more than 9 hours of instruction. In true splinegod style, Larry shows you more than one way to model the head and hair. He also goes into detail on polygon flow and the importance of the flow especially on a character like this.

I can tell ya, I had a lot of fun watching the LIVE TRAINING of the Cartoon Character Head Modeling, it's really well done and every penny worth, I'm more than happy to get the DVD in my shelf now.
The teacher "Larry Shultz" well known as Splinegod did an excellent job as usual, he explains it all so easy and understandable, give you more then one way to go to the end result of the head with a lot of extra Tips & Tricks.
Can't wait to get my hands on the other upcoming parts of this Training Series. I'm still working on the head (to less time), I'll post it here later.

BTW THANKS for the 20% off

I was only messing with you man, it's cool. The course looks like something I might buy, too. :)

It's my fault anyway - over they years I kept forgetting my password and had trouble with the password retrieval or something. I know that's happened elsewhere at least. And I do have multiple accounts, though I'm not sure right now what they are. One day I'll straighten it out. ;)

Thinking about it now, it seems what happened is I had problems setting up an account - like the cookie didn't get set and it wouldn't let me log in and I made a few attempts and that's how I ended up with multiple accounts. I doubt it would be 5 though - maybe three.
