Amazing teacher! I've never learned so much about drawing in such a short amount of time. His videos are informative and he continuously explains not only what he is doing but why. This course isn't just learning how to draw but understanding what drawing is and how to accurately apply simple methods that makes drawing easy!
Very good class. Teaches thoroughly and explains rationale behind the technique.
