Kyle is an amazing teacher and the course has really increased my confidence in body mechanics particularly, and character animation in general. I struggled with body mechanics a lot before this course and I was on the verge of giving up. Now I feel a renewed love for the art of animation and I am poised to continue to pursue my dream of becoming a professional animator. I am very happy with the course and with Kyle’s mastery, dedication and attentiveness as a teacher and animator.
