As I said earlier, I recommend this course for everyone; doctors included (:\n\nI like how this course was treated in a different way. We see people doing the job on there ground, that's interesting.
Fun and challenging to me. Is not easy to me to create new characters, but with this practice and professional examples, I feel more confident to just do and see what happens. Thank you, very much.

I would like a different approach on the way this course is given to the student. The first couple of classes were really cool and inspiring, but the later two became more of the same and kinda took my inspiration and motivation down to finish the course.

Very open way of learning. Few talks with people from the industry, sharing their approach.
Not much of fundamental knowledge.
Generally great motivator to exercise Character Design. Not that great resource to learn from a beginning.

The ideas in this course were very interesting and I really enjoyed what the different guest artists had to say, however, it would be nice if the assignments were not only peer reviewed.

First week and last week were pretty useful with some good tips from the videos... the other weeks not so much.

I believe that exaggerated the amount of minutes per video and lack of theory, but it was still a good course.

While the information given by Fran was useful, the part where other artists talk is not presented well.

it was cool learned a few new things from the teachings however the critique system is kinda lacking
by Juan C D M•
It is cool. but it does not give any certificate of completion at the end as other courses do.

It was really fun and beneficial, hoped the method of grading was a bit different though.
by Benjamin H•
Instruction was through watching other characters designers talk about their process.
by Viola B•
It was a fun course, not sure about the educational content, but it was fun.

Good course, fun to do, but the video quality is terrible.
by David H•
there was 1 concept taught in the first lesson that of density. then it was loads of videos of other people drawing characters, not actually going through a design process. and then a few assignments designing a few characters . I was hoping to learn more about some of the principles of character design- wasnt blown away by this course wont be taking any more of these

great first week, I like Fran's First week video, with the puppets and very engaging interaction,
the next following 3 weeks are total bummer, It does give some tips for character design (such as what is tangent, or some other design tips), but it feels like a bloated interview and not a class-like experience. Great first week, terrible following week

I thought these class could have been elevated with the professor actually teaching. I enjoyed the the animators thought process walk-through, but I didn't think that was sufficient as an actual course.

Feels like a money grabber rather than teaching anything useful, when designing character for video games is also important the skill you have or obtain while doing it and this doesn't place any emphasis into it. So for the price the charge in the certificate it really feels like a money grabber rather than teaching anything useful at all. Other schools like Gnomon WorkShop and DVDs like "Eat3D" and many others out there, which gives e more content for a fraction of the price they charging here! It needs to be deeper and more robust if this course wants to stand out, right now is not.

I expected to get some structurized practical knowledge but the course consists simply of the interviews with designers. All the assignments are peer graded so you cannot receive any valuable feedback of the professsional. Such a disappointment.
