    Herschel Hoffmeyer is an established published artist and is an expert at producing high quality 3D models, especially when it relates to dinosaurs! In this tutorial he reveals how he creates his stand-out promotional art by using DAZ Studio, the Unreal Engine and provides a whole series of high value postwork tips with Photoshop.

    About the Presenter : Herschel Hoffmeyer

    Herschel is a respected 3D digital artist from Northern Missouri in the United States and uses Zbrush, Unreal Engine 4, Daz Studio, and Adobe Photoshop to produce his illustrations.  He’s been providing commercial work for projects since 2013.

    He fell in love with dinosaurs at a very young age.  The Internet was still in its early stages and with no computer, the best place to learn about dinosaurs was from books. Once he had memorised all the dinosaur books from his local library, he then sought out the next library to do the same! Learning about dinosaurs was a lot of fun, but what he found most interesting was recreating artistic works with some added flavour!
