In all aspects, it was a great course. I learned a ton about the industry, the software, and techniques to improve my modeling. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn hard surface modeling.
This course helped with my topology, design, modeling thinking process, UVing, use of curves, scripts, confidence in my work and ability, and more.
His extended effort to show additional examples and methods both in the forums in the week days, and in the Q&A’s deserves an applause! Describes and explains everything very well, and is easily understandable.
