The Gnomon Workshop announced a comprehensive new concept design title: Robot Design with Josh Nizzi. In this DVD, Josh leads you through his production process for designing a fighting robot. He covers everything from sketching thumbnails and modeling a 3D proxy model to rendering and detailing. Throughout the lecture Josh discusses various features and elements to focus on for a stronger design, and he shows techniques for efficiently and quickly making your next robot design a lot cooler when you present it to your art director or client.
"Michael Bay took one look at Josh Nizzi's Constructicon, put the design into production for Transformers 2, and hired Nizzi on the spot," says Ben Procter, feature film art director and concept designer. "If you want kick-ass robots, go to Josh Nizzi."
