I met Kaz about a year ago. She visited the Medieval Corridor with her good friend Bettina Tizzy. That was the first time I got to see one of her creations…the Dravyn. I remember my jaw dropping. Even though we are familiar with all sorts of content creation techniques and have become experts in sculpted primming, something about Kazuhiro’s creation stood out. Odd as this may sound, her creatures look and feel very much alive. Last week, I got the opportunity to learn more about Kaz’s process for creating her Dream Creatures. She invited several people for a “safari” into her workshop and showed us her drafts, design concepts and earlier versions of work. It was a wonderful experience to see the evolution of work by this talented artist.
The machinima that resulted from this safari is an attempt to share the creativity of Kazuhiro Aridian. Hopefully, it will inspire others as well.
