This is an amazing course, a must-have one for any character designer out there. The techniques are pretty new to me and and I found it very practical to use. I have no regrets at all taking this course.
I loved it !
Thanks so much, I've learned a lot, finished the course but of course I now have to finish the shadows and texture on my drawing ! I'm so happy ! One single regret about the course : I would have loved that the girl who created the 4 characters ...
