Steve Wang
Co-founder of Alliance Studios
Steve Wang is a constant source of information and inspiration.  Some of Steve's past work can be seen on the Alliance Studios website and he has an instructional DVD called Creature Mask Painting available through The Stan Winston School of Character Arts; I own this one and it is amazing!

Hiroshi has some of the most beautiful and bizarre work I have ever seen.  Some of his work can be seen at the Art of Hiroshi Katagiri website.
Hiroshi also has a Kickstarter campaign running for a personal project of his called Gahenna, I encourage everyone to follow this link Gahenna Film and support this project, Hiroshi's work is amazing and this movie will showcase what he can do!

Reference Material From the Stan Winston School of Character Arts

I have 29 of the Stan Winston School of Character Arts DVDs in my collection and also have a subscription to the school website allowing me monthly downloads of tutorial videos.  I am only including the DVDs that I used as reference for the Mole Man project.  I will build on to this list as I progress through projects using techniques or information provided in the DVDs or online tutorials. So far I have not been disappointed by any of the DVDs or online tutorials, I hope they help you as much as they have me.
