🎃 Mythical Creatures and Beyond: A Halloween Inspired Sketch Session with Terryl Whitlatch – Powered by Wacom
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 20 – 9:00 PM EDT / 6:00 PM PDT
Join us for a special Halloween-themed sketch session with professional creature designer, Terryl Whitlatch. Whitlatch was the principal creature designer for Star Wars The Phantom Menace, designing most of the aliens and taking them from concepts to fully realized anatomies and stylizations. Some of her most significant characters include Jar Jar Binks, Sebulba, the pod racers, the undersea monsters of Naboo, and the Naboo Swamp creatures. She also worked closely with George Lucas in the redesign of such pre-existing characters as Jabba the Hutt and the dewbacks. Whitlatch also worked on Disney’s Brother Bear, designing the bear, moose, and other animal characters from highly realistic anatomical studies. She has also contributed concept work to such films as Disney’s John Carter of Mars and Pixar’s Brave. Have a question for Terryl Whitlatch or Wacom? Ask it here!
