Great class, thank you for the inspiration!!
This is a very fun course and recommended for anyone interested in using patterns in their artwork or design. The Instructor, Charles, dives deep into his creative process and provides useful tips when applying patterns to characters. The process was quite thoughtful and I'm glad Charles guided me through it. Charles does have a strong Asian accent but he was very thoughtful in incorporating English subtitles into his videos, making it easier to follow along. Overall, this was an impressive course compressed into half an hour.
Great class, lots of value! Will take your style to the next step
