About Ehsan Bigloo : Credits and Extended Bio

Ehsan is a Sr. Character/Creature and Environment Designer/Developer in the entertainment industry with over 15 years of experience, alongside nearly 20 years of creating traditional fine art figurative artworks. Based in Los Angeles, California.

With a foundation in traditional figurative art, practical effects, and digital creations, Ehsan has honed its expertise in designing creatures, characters, costumes, armor, environments, and shots, along with world-building from script to screen. Ehsan’s portfolio showcases collaborations with top-tier film studios, streaming TV companies, practical effects shops, VFX studios, and AAA video game developers.


Drawing inspiration from the black-and-white monsters of Universal Studios to the practical live-action character effects of the late 1970s and 1980s, his passion also extends to the Renaissance era. Admiring the works of Dürer, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Pontormo, Raphael, and Titian, he embraces a school of thought that favors a limited color palette in oil painting, akin to Rembrandt’s style.

Supporters also have the opportunity to access an exclusive workshop in Paris, scheduled to occur during IAMC ’25. Participants in the In-Person Workshop will gain entry to the main event of the IAMAG Master Classes on Friday, and will have the chance to attend Ehsan’s in-person workshop on Saturday and Sunday.

Pledge E offers an enriching and comprehensive experience, combining exclusive online content with a unique opportunity to engage in person at one of the most anticipated events in the digital art world. However, it is important to note that while this pledge provides access to a wealth of knowledge and an unparalleled in-person experience, there are certain aspects that participants need to manage independently.

 For participants of Pledge E, please be aware that while you gain access to an exclusive workshop in Paris, scheduled to coincide with IAMC ’25, and the opportunity for hands-on learning and networking.

This means that while we ensure a profoundly enriching educational and networking experience through your access to the IAMAG Master Classes, personal mentorship with Ehsan, and the vibrant atmosphere of the in-person workshops, the logistical and living expenses for the duration of the event must be planned and covered by each attendee.

We encourage participants to plan accordingly and make arrangements well in advance to enjoy a comfortable and hassle-free experience at IAMC ’25. This proactive approach will ensure that you can focus fully on the learning and networking opportunities provided by this immersive experience.

Remember, Pledge E is designed to offer the ultimate journey into the realm of digital art and creature design, blending the convenience of online access with the irreplaceable value of in-person engagement.



Important Note: The costs for flight, accommodation, and food are not included in this pledge. Attendees are responsible for arranging their own travel, lodging, and meals during their stay in Paris.
