ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:

ABOUT THE ARTIST:

Did you know that the Horse is the animal that is depicted the most

throughout the history of art, as well as in the animation, gaming, and film industry? From The Lord of the Rings to nearly every Disney feature, horses and horse-based creatures are everywhere.

Therefore, as conceptual illustrators and creature designers,

understanding horses—both their anatomy and behavior/personality-- is of crucial importance.

Join Terryl Whitlatch as she shares the essentials of horse anatomy as well as their natural history, the challenges of exciting action poses, the creation of powerful (and scary) über mounts, characters for animation, and even how to put stripes on a zebra. With specially created downloadable art assets and anatomy diagrams unique to this course, this is an invaluable workshop not to be missed, and to which you’ll refer for years to come.

Terryl is an internationally recognized creature designer for film, animation, and publishing. She was also captivated by the many animals on her grandfather's ranch at that same time. For Terryl, these two things started a lifelong love of art and animals.

Scientifically and academically trained as a paleo-reconstructionist, she applied her extensive knowledge of anatomy and zoology to creature design, beginning in 1989 for Lucasfilm and Industrial Light and Magic, where she worked on many films, including acting as Principal Creature Designer for Star Wars: Episode One - the Phantom Menace. She is the author of several books, including The Wildlife of Star Wars, The Katurran Odyssey, and Animals Real and Imagined.

Credits include:

  • Star Wars: Episode One The Phantom Menace

  • Jumanji 1 and 2

  • Men in Black

  • John Carter

  • Brave
