Robert Zsombori

By gaining some understanding on anatomy, I was able to overall improve my figure drawing. As a story and concept artist, this course was a good investment. Thank you.

Martha Balaile

I have gained more confidence and my anatomy drawings look much better. I can also draw from a reference without relying too heavily on it now.

Nikhil Arora

Ron Lemen is a tremendous source of information. He really knows his stuff, and he gives good critiques. Also special commendation for getting all the feedback videos in before the Q&As.
