Really great artist offering practical simple steps.
good instruction !!! highly recommend !!!
Great class that gets into both the mental process and drawing / painting process of creating creature designs. The class follows the complete process from beginning to end of one creature design. Andrew Hou does a fantastic job talking about his thought process while creating his design. Both beginner and advanced artists could learn from this class.

Amazingly inspirational! Fun to do!
I feel that this class covers a lot of the things that should go behind coming up with great concepts! The work flow is very easy to follow and I think a lot of people can pick it up pretty easily. Although its just a conceptualization class for creature design, I think it would of been awesome to see the finished product, just to show what the process would be and how Andrew would go about completing it. Just my thought. Very awesome class and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in a career in concept design!
