ZBrushWorkshops is a new online learning portal for digital sculptors looking to MASTER ZBrush. Founded by Ryan Kingslien, the mission of ZBrushWorkshops is to combine traditional artistic teaching with digital workflows and train sculptors for the film and game industry. ZBrushWorkshops offers several digital workshops & live online classes that target specific areas of digital sculpting while alsoproviding a comprehensive review of the tools in ZBrush. In founding ZBW, Ryan brought his considerable experience both at Pixologic and at the Gnomon Workshop to develop a robust yet friendly environment for artists to learn, create and grow. We have implemented several features designed to provide feedback to artists and reduce the learning curve via live chat and a dedicated community where artists can share their artwork.
Each workshop is available via a subscription that gives students access to course material, live chat and support. More info http://www.zbrushworkshops.com/workshops.html

About Ryan:He is trained as a traditional artist at the Pennslyvannia Academy of Fine Art. Ryan was the very first Product Manager for ZBrush at Pixologic. During this time he developed the curriculum that is now the standard in schools across the globe and consulted with companies such as ILM, Sony Pictures Imageworks, Bungie Studios, Ubisoft and Electronic Arts to integrate digital sculpting into their production pipelines. To put it another way, Ryan’s the guy who put the Rake brush in ZBrush.
