I greatly appreciate the time spent on showing and explaining the anatomy of birds, as well as addressing what parts of it should and should not be visible in your art. Exceptionally well researched compared to most other classes.

Geoffrey Jacobs is an excelent teacher. Now, I begin to understand the anatomy of the birds and animals in general. Thank you, Geoffrey! I hope you will teach other classes on Skillshare. Cheers from Brazil!
