The Art of Simon Lee


June 24 - July 20, 2024 (4 weeks)

Instructor: Simon Lee

(NOTE: THIS IS A 4-WEEK ONLINE CLASS. Students can use either Zbrush or traditional sculpting for this class)

If you love monsters and creatures, then this is the class for you!

Digital artists: you may use digital sculpting instead of clay for this class.

I have more than 30 years of sculpting experience, and over the past decade, I took part in creating some of Hollywood's most high profile movie monsters including Ghidorah & Rodan from Godzilla King of Monsters, the Skullcrawler from Kong Skull Island, the Edge of Tomorrow alien, the Master vampire and other strigoi vampires from the Strain, the kaijus from Pacific Rim, and many others that I cannot yet tell you about...

In this brand new online class, I will share with you my way of monster & creature design. I will be teaching this class in traditional clay sculpting, but you're welcome to use either clay or digital medium.

Class Structure:

  • Every Monday new lecture videos will be unlocked and can be accessed through a private class blog. You will have access to the videos 24/7 and throughout the duration of the course.
  • There will be homework assignments for the week, which is due every Thursday night Los Angeles time. Simon will personally review and provide feedback. If you cannot finish your homework in-time, you can make it up the week later.
  • Every Saturday afternoon Los Angeles time, there will be a live chat for the whole to attend (up to one hour) where Simon will answer any further lecture related questions. For those that cannot attend the live chat, questions can be submitted separately, and the chat session will be recorded for viewing afterwards was well.

Class Policy: Materials and tools:
  • Simon will discuss the types of tools and clay he uses but you can use your own tools and clay.
Note to international students:
  • This class will be conducted in English
Prior Sculpting Experience:
  • Prior traditional sculpting experience will help but is NOT required. If you draw or sculpt digitally and have some basic knowledge on human anatomy, you will do fine in this class. Simon will adjust his teaching based on each student's skill level.

Tuition: $750
