Christian Nacorda is the best instructor I've ever met. He teaches his students with passion and he truly transfers this passion to students through his lectures. He is such a good supporter of amateurs. I always had fear to start drawing Anatomy but Christian made it so easy to learn. I am very pleased to had this opportunity to be his student.
