The Best of CG 2011 from CG Society

CG Society has put together a list of the top 20 CG related products, movies and games from 2011 and compiled them into this nice list for us to read.  Some notable entries are ZBrush 4R2 coming in at number 2, and V-Ray for Maya coming in at number 19. Check out the entire list here.  Is there something missing from the list?

From CG Society:

CGSociety has very great pleasure in presenting the Top 20 list for 2011. In collating this retrospective as voted by you, the CGSociety community, we called out for nominations between November 8 and December 23 on a thread especially opened on CGTalk. Items could be anything related to the Computer Graphics industry. It could be software releases, new hardware, movies, games, short films, in fact any product that made our lives better or filled us with awe while in the pursuit and creation of better CG and VFX. Over 12,200 people viewed and contributed to the thread and now, at the start of the next adventure in 2012, we can present the 2011 Retrospective Top 20 article.

ZBrush Concept Sculpting & Maquettes

Bryan Wynia from Sony Santa Monica brings you this 3 week summer class at CG Workshop.  Learn how Bryan, a ZBrush master and Pixologic demonstrator, goes through the process of creating his 3D creature concepts in ZBrush.

Work alongside Bryan as he helps you find references, brainstorm, create thumbnails and practice speed-sculpting your concepts. He’ll then help you select your strongest idea to refine and evolve, polypaint and render ready for your final image.

Bryan has taught a number of classes and workshops, and is respected both as a creator, and as a trainer in ZBrush concept creation. His work has featured in Famous Monsters of Filmland, Imagine FX, 3D Artist and 3D World Magazines.

To sign up for the workshop, visit CG Workshops.

You can also buy ZBrush 4 R2 from Motion Media if you don’t already have it and want to create your own creatures.
