Day 2 Presentation
Featuring Shane Olson & Matt Thorup
Shane is a Senior Character Artist working at Disney Interactive, Avalanche Software. He is currently working on Disney Infinity 4.0. Shane has been in the game industry for over 15 years as an animator, rigger, modeler, and now digital sculptor. Shane loves Zbrush, and loves sharing his knowledge of ZBrush with the rest of the world! Shane has an amazing wife, four wonderful children, and currently resides in Utah.
Matt Thorup has been working as a Character Artist for Disney Interactive for the last three years. Prior to this, he worked as a Graphic Designer specializing in illustrative designs and mascot development. He is known as The Redbeard on social channels where he posts my most recent work, including 3D tutorials in ZBrush. A native of the great state of Utah, he still resides there with his sweet-sauce wife and two super boys. He constantly strives to develop and improve his artistic skills while riding the phases of his red facial hair (hence, his social media monicker). His favorite film is The Iron Giant, closely followed by The Incredibles and Matt admits to having a big man crush on Brad Bird.
