I'm fairly new to Maya and this really helped me with some extra tricks - things just as the keyboard shortcuts, soft selection and other general modelling techniques which I haven't learnt yet. The only issue with this course is a personal flaw - I can't draw to save my life. Which is really sad as I would love to do animation as a career, but my artistic skills are worse than a toddler. Thanks anyway Tabia, great course
I love Tabia's style of teaching. Very great course! Already recommended it to my brother.

Hello, I'm Drew Rumsey

Great class! Lots to take in, but learned a lot. I'm starting to make my own model and hopefully it goes well as a result of this class :)
