Hello! My name is Reuben Lara. I am a freelance illustrator and animator ( reubenlara.com / uptownferret.com ) in the process of creating a professional, affordable, non-nude Anatomy for Artists course, geared towards young children and teenagers (10+)
There isn't anything online and affordable that parents can feel is safe for kids who have promising careers in professional illustration. This course will use photographs of athletes, dancers, and other active professionals as a basis for écorché drawings and training. I have extensive experience drawing and simplifying the human form, and have taken several advanced anatomy classes such as those offered at Pasadena Art Center College of Design and Scott Eaton's Anatomy for Artists Online (http://www.scott-eaton.com/anatomy-for-artists-online-course). I currently provide the most viewed training for Clip Studio Paint (youtube.com/reubenlara), and just started a relationship with Celsys in Japan to create more illustration and animation training on their official website in the coming year.
I'm interested in building a simple Unity-based iOS app (similar in simplicity to "Skelly" https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/skelly-poseable-anatomy-model-for-artists/id976920216?mt=8 ) that allows users to orbit 3D models in one of three states: skinned, muscles showing, and as a skeleton. I believe that even just being able to see a basic body doing the "UPPER BODY ROM (ANIMATION)" in a loop, but from any angle and at custom speeds (including an option to scrub) is hugely valuable to artists learning anatomy. I would use this as app as a regular reference point in my anatomy training series. There is nothing currently available with the kind of functionality or accuracy that Ziva models are capable of.
Is there anyone in the Ziva community interested in collaborating with me on this project? I have some Unity experience and enough Maya/Cinema4D/web-dev experience to have productive conversations and expectations regarding a business plan. My main goal is to make quality anatomy training accessible and affordable to talented young people willing to put some time and effort into understanding the human form.
Thanks for all the work everyone is putting into this amazing product!
