Rey Bustos on line classes

I now teach on line through Ryan Kingslien's company, VISUALARIUM

Look them up for details.  It's been an amazing opportunity for me to teach to people that are all over this globe.  It is an amazing aspect of living in this great day and age.  Here I am doing one of my webinars which are an important part of my class...I get to critique student work and draw on their submitted images.  I am here using a Wacom tablet and stylus "Drawing" on student work.

Lecture at Disney Auditorium, Burbank

I gave a lecture on human and animal anatomy , character development and design to about 100 animators and directors at Disney in Burbank, the "Hat" was a very exciting day.      It was great fun to see my slides projected up much larger than I have ever was so weird to see them so super-sized.      Afterwards I met with two teams that are working on two different movie projects...hush-hush so that's all that I can say...but it was fun to have them pick my brain and more fun for me to give my input.
It's been a fabulous spite of my back surgery....that seems to have made everything even more wondrous.  I am a very, very grateful man.  I took this picture before everyone filed into the can see my little red walker by my podium....I am much better now and am not using it as much.

I have been helping with a character for a movie...well, it's hush-hush but I wanted to post the preciousness of my daughter as she helped her daddy. She LOVES helping with things like this and I feel she might work for Disney/Pixar in the future.    She's getting good training here in my studio already!   I love her more than I can say.   Rey

Ryan Kingslien teams up with Rey Bustos

The fabulous Z-Brush guru Ryan Kingslien and myself are in the process of creating my on-line class through his company,VISUALARIUM.   Here we are with one of our favorite models, Michael Wood.  I did a drawing of Michael's back for one of my class lectures.  We have been working hard but it will all be worth it and anyone buying the class will definitely get their money's worth.  I am putting my heart and soul into this project.  Pictured: Rey, Michael (the kid with no shirt...did I need to say that?) and Ryan by my blackboard and easel, June 2012.  The lower image is from July 2012.  I did a drawing from a Boucher (1703-70) as I explained the muscles, form development and strategy in drawing this particular piece.

Glenn Vilppu visits my classroom next door

While teaching at LAAFA the great Glenn Vilppu came in to say hello, he was teaching next door and has to hear my lectures all day long...anyway, I took advantage while he was in my room to have him sign one of his fabulous books for me.
