Always inspired by art and drawing a lot as a kid, Josh tried his hand at other things like business school, entrepreneurship, and auto-body mechanic before finally deciding to pursue art as a career. Raised in Colorado he attended a local animation college and after graduating he moved to Hollywood in 2008 to continue his education at the Gnomon School of Visual Effects.
Immediately after graduating in late 2009 Josh began working at Legacy Effects working on movies like REAL STEEL, THE AMAZING SPIDERMAN, TOTAL RECALL, and THE AVENGERS. After that Josh left Legacy to try his hand at games and worked for Naughty Dog on Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception, but soon found himself back in movies and working for Marvel Studios working on titles like, IRON MAN 3, THOR: THE DARK WORLD, CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, and THE AVENGERS : AGE OF ULTRON.
On the side, Josh loves to pay it forward and has taught ZBrush Character Creation at CDA in Pasadena, CA and currently teaches for CGSociety’s CGWorkshops. Josh is also one of the talented artists who has put together the latest Ballistic Publishing Masterclass book Essence Creatures, now available to preOrder.
Please give a big welcome to Josh Herman.
