Andrew Baker

Back in 2013 a took a course through Phoenix Atelier. The course was on character design with Andrew Baker
Andrew Baker is an awesome guy and a great teacher! Check out his stuff over here: http://andbakerdesigns.blogspot.co.nz/

This course was over 8 weeks and I did all of my assignments on the evening and the weekends, as I was working full time in a post production film studio at the time.
I really enjoyed the course and I was so inspired at the time looking at character/creature artwork from Weta workshop from the hobbit movies.. Btw, Andrew designed a bunch of them.

Funny how things work out.. In 2015 I got a job over at Weta Digital and I also happened to get to know Andrew in person!
