  • Chris Lindstrom

    Very good instructor. He provided clear and useful feedback each week and the Q&As were very informative.

  • Bakari Griffin

    I learned so much and finally learned how to put the character into characters! Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything!

  • Jacob Birmingham

    It was helpful to have character design tool sets broken down. The methods Brett introduced us to helped me create characters I probably would not have previously envisioned out of my head, just by creating some space to play with different proportions, and providing some new ways of thinking and/or approaching a design.

  • Sandra Schwartz

    It improves the way I see things around me and the way I draw in general! I ‘m so glade I took this course!

  • Amanda Zima

    I took this class more for fun and to push me a bit out of my comfort zone. I think just having assignments to work on was super helpful to force me to draw. I sometimes suffer from not knowing what to draw, and end up not drawing, or drawing similar things over and over again.

  • Frank J Montes

    This course has really forced me out of my comfort zone and helped me expand the areas my mind usually goes to when I sit down and draw a character.

  • Jacob

    I feel like a lot of the class was information I’ve heard over the years in other classes and through trying to learn through youtube tutorials, but it was condensed and presented in a way that gets you to think about a lot of things all at once while drawing. New information I took away from it was that iteration and exploration are key to good design. Before this class I would draw a character one way and then just try to make that one way work by drawing them the same way over and over maybe with slight differences, when its exploring the large differences that leads to better design.
