As I said earlier, I recommend this course for everyone; doctors included (:
I 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 enjoyed the course and can see progress in my character design skills.
Pros: you observe the working process of famous artists; you participate in creative challenges; you get the main theoretical anchors that are needed for character creation.
Cons: fellow students check each others assignments. For many it seems hard to criticise because they lack knowledge and experience, not everyone is able to be a good mentor. Some just neglect their responsibility to give a thorough review.
I was happy to learn a lot of new things, I ended up with good pieces for my future portfolio.
Big thanks to all teachers, moderators, filming team, guest artists and fellow student for this experience!

I really enjoyed this course. I am someone with experience in art and writing/character creation, but I really struggled to bridge the gap into character design through art. This course effectively bridged that gap for me and helped me think more practically about these things. I think that the course is really valuable in terms of the homework and broad concepts covered, and you get out what you put into it. I would have liked a bit more 'teaching' of character design concepts - it was a bit more open than I'd expected and without my own study on the side I think I would not have gotten as much as I did.

A very interesting experience. I got imagination level-up. Though it was really difficult to understand what should you do in each assignment. I've spent quite a while time to realize what to do each time. And some students did their homework completely wrong. But except of that it's a great course.

The course content is easy to follow, and is very insightful as you learn about the different artists' creative processes. The assignment grading system, however, needs to be improved so that it's easier to submit peer reviews, and to make sure that feedback received is constructive and useful.

I enjoyed this course because I learned about the more practical aspects of character design. The assignments were based of the same theory but didn't feel repetitive. The only thing I found was that the grading was veryyyyy easy.
So: A bit underwhelming but fun and interesting.

This was probably my favorite course of the 4 pre capstone courses. Having played video games pre Atari, the other classes weren't a huge surprise but the activities were fun. This is the first one that really challenged me to get out of my comfort zone.

This was a nice coure, I learned a lot from the artist that were invited to participated here, very talented with useful tips! But Would be cool to also include artists from other backgrounds like women, queer people, trans, etc.

I would have liked to get input on my work by an instructor instead of just other students, but it was a good exercise to hone my skills. I wouldn't pay for credit because I feel like my work isn't being professionally graded.
by David M•
Very cool to see other artists in their "zone" talking about their experiences and giving some advice, gave 4 stars instead of 5 just because plenty of the talking isn't as informative as I would have liked.

Only issue with this course is that since there's only peer review and your peers can all be at different levels of skill, you run the risk of not getting any constructive criticism.

This course expanded my mind into creating a character inspired by surroundings. I have designed characters before in class but this was the next level i needed!

Very interesting and engaging activities. It was great to make designs to be compared and assessed by other students. Highly recommended.
