As a total newbie to character design this really helped me out. I learned a steady workflow that helped me stay on track and not wander off to do things like details too early which would then screw up the entire character. Instead I got the fundamental shapes and design down first which made it more fun to work and gave me a base to put details on. Really great class that I will go back and watch again ('cause I will probably forget some things hehe)
I love the style. The format of theory followed by application is great.
Excellent course. These techniques are applicable to all character design, not limited to just the protagonist.
