My Bio
Creature/ Character/Concept Artist

Jerad S Marantz has been working in both the Film and Game industry for over ten years. After graduating from Pasadena Art Center College of Design he started designing for Stan Winston Studio. He has also freelanced for several special FX houses including: Amalgamated Dynamics Inc., Quantum Creation FX, Creature FX Inc, and Almost Human. .
In late 2005 Jerad worked full-time at Ncsoft Santa Monica where he designed for such games as, “Richard Garriot's Tabula Rasa,” Guild Wars and Lineage Forever. He has also freelanced for Midway (Surreal Games), THQ and Climax.
Marantz started his career at an early age interning for Special FX houses. Trying a little of everything enabled him to narrow his focus to character / creature design for the Film and Game industries. His acquired skills in sculpture, painting, illustration, Zbrush, and Photoshop all aide his unique sense of concept design. Jerad also enjoys teaching at Gnomon School of Visual FX, and the Concept Design Academy

I was the Lead Character Designer on this film. It was a pleasure designing at the Aaron Sims Company. Louis Leterrier was one of the nicest directors I have ever worked for. Thank you all for the kind comments.

You should credit where you got the Grimm Wesen concept art from.

It's all in their wiki 
grimm.wikia.com/wiki/Wesen/Con…
Pretty sure it's his own artwork considering some of the images on the wiki have his signature at the bottom...
For he's a jolly good fellow...  for he's a jolly good fellow...
