On Tuesday 25 February, SAE Oxford will be hosting an online masterclass with character artist Sasha Ristic Kreiger at 5.00 pm. The talk will be streamed on the SAE YouTube channel, which means you can dial in from home if you can’t attend the talk in person.
The masterclass will be a useful session for Game Art Animation and VFX Animation students wondering how to break into the animation industry. For those interested in pursuing a career as a character artist, Sasha’s talk promises to be jam-packed with helpful pointers for specialising in this area.
Sasha was born in Brcko in Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1982, and he now lives and works in Belgrade, where he will be dialling in from. Sasha is a 3D Artist with lots of experience working in the computer games industry, working as an Executive 3D Artist for Mad Head Games, a Senior 3D Artist for Auslander Studios and Character Lead at Nordeus Games. He has strong business acumen and is skilled in Film Art and Concept Art.
In the online SAE Extra masterclass, he will be covering ZBrush techniques for character and prop creation for games and cinematics, advanced 3D-modelling techniques as well as survival skills as a freelancer, including enhancing your employability and professional conduct. Sasha will illustrate these talking points with a video demonstration of his work, showing the process from conception to completion.
SAE Oxford Game Art Animation lecturer Aidan Coughlan said: “This is a real treat for the aspiring character artists at SAE. Sasha has been a practising character artist for many years now and is a Character Lead at Nordeus Games in Serbia. He is hands down one of the best creature artists in the world and we are delighted to be hosting a detailed look at his process from inception to final production-ready characters and environment assets. Not to be missed."
