The next semester is filling up, only 5 spaces left.It will begin JAN 4th 2010 Register @ Schoolism.com
Thank you so much for the time you dedicated to critiquing my work over the past 9 lessons. I learned more than I thought I would. In fact, I think I learned more in this course than I did in my entire time at school, and the years following where I tried to teach myself. I am finishing this course with so much more confidence in my drawings than I had originally, and a much better mindset of how to go about the design process. And, of course, am having a LOT more fun with drawing than I ever had. Your enthusiasm is definitely contagious. :) Stephanie Faye
Your course has helped me understand some of the fundamentals of character design, and has started to give me a bit of confidence in my abilities. I know I still have a lot of work to do, but I feel that completing you course will help focus and guide me towards my goal. Kristi-Lyn Osterreicher
What can I say? I loved this course and wish it could never end. I really feel like the information that I got out of it was just invaluable. It was everything I was hoping it would be and more. The critiques were wonderful and the classes answered many of the questions that I have had for a while now about how to become a character designer. On top of all that this class also provided me with more tools on how to just become a better and more practiced artist. I am sad it is over but I look forward to using all the tools I learned and applying them to my future work. Kimberly Gilbert
