Here are some past students feedback:

"I was looking for this kind of course for a very long time because doing stylized characters is one thing but doing them with such naturalism as Pierre is whole different story.

I’m always trying to be up to date with the newest tutorials out there and buying this one as a gift for myself was probably the best thing I could do! My intimidation and slow lingering creation changed into much faster and balder approach. Completing the weekly assignments with the great help of Pierre and his tips gave me more than I ever wished to achieve over so short period of time! In two months after this course I did much more and much better works than during the whole year before! There are tips about every aspect you should to know to create stunning characters with lots of stylized feel on them."

"This course was everything I wanted it to be. Pierre's understanding of anatomy and software took me up a level. He is a dedicated and thoughtful instructor.The course was well organized and very interactive. I feel like this was the missing piece to truly being able to understand and craft sculpts in ZBrush."

Jake Kemper, Florida.USA

"These 10 weeks were exactly what I needed to push my work and abilities even further! The assignments were challenging but way fun and the amount of information and resources we got for such a short period of time was way more than I was expecting. I highly recommend it to anyone who's interested!"
