The instructor was fantastic and I absolutely loved his class!
Best instructor ever!
Amazing, phenomenal instructor. This is the best CGMA fundamentals course, and I believe it is the single most important for 3D Character Artists.
Gael is a great teacher, he explained his workflow in great detail and provided even more information in the Q&A sessions. He also encouraged us to help each other, creating a great rapport between the students. I really enjoyed the course.
Gael was knowledgeable and passionate about anatomy, and conveyed that knowledge clearly at an appropriate level.
