About the Author

Fridolin T. Beisert was born in Hamburg, Germany, where he grew up inspired by his two loving parents, a doctor and a children's book illustrator, as well as his older brother, a film director.
In researching the best school for his own ambition and talent, Fridolin eventually went to the U.S. to pursue a degree from the Art center College of Design in Los Angeles, entering as an industrial design student. It was during this time as a student when he started to discover his passion for the design process and creative problem solving. He was awarded scholarships from both Art Center and Alias and also received the prestigious Universal Studios internship, which enabled him to explore his interest in entertainment design. Subsequently, Fridolin received his Bachelor of Science in both Product and Entertainment Design and was recognized with the additional title of "Distinction," Art Center's Highest graduating honor. Samples of Fridolin's work are included in the Alias StudioTools Gallery.

This book demo few examples to help reader to learn how to create a complete model from modeling to final render. I don't like this kind of teaching style. Hopefully. there will be some learning kit with complete learning process.

sincerely Yours.
