Amazing very useful except I didn't need 10 faces since I already had style in mind is useful for other students who aren't sure
I think this class is good because many people want to find their own style and this is some good tips how to do so as well as getting started with making your own comic and OC's.
Very good class for beginners especially. Love how detailed the tutorials are. Wish he continued, but this is precious nonetheless.
