Heres some comments from a few students.
The CDs arrived today. I just finished the mouth area, so I'm moving along pretty well. The CDs are great! Very easy to follow and understand. After all the rave reviews I expected a lot, and my expectations were
exceeded. Great job with everything. - K.S.
The CD's are great so far. I am really impressed with your teaching ability! It's a real talent that most of us do not possess. I haven't gotten far enough into them to be really specific about it, but I am definitely
100% satisfied with what I've seen so far. I'll give you some more detail as I get further into it. - C.J.
I have received your CD's and have been studying them every chance I have. Excellent tutorials and techniques!...Thank you so much for sharing your techniques with us. - L.H.
I have seen some work done by people who have been learning from your CDs and I was very impressed.....I am very keen to sign up for these courses... - K.M.
The tutorials are excellent by the way. I have had to start over a couple times due to my own stupidity, but each time I do I get better at the modeling. I look forward to picking up the others in the series as soon as I finish up this set of CD's. - J.M.
I've been working through the character series this weekend and I must say that I'm mighty impressed. I would like to sign up for the rest of the series... M.K.
Well I've finally got a complete character, and have uploaded it for
inspection.What excellent tutorials Larry, it's been a complete revelation to me, your methodology is amazing, and this is only as far as the modelling stage, I can't wait for the next CDs.Many more of the uses of lightwave's toolset are now apparent to me.Spin quads and the whole flow thing I find so cool, though I did get a bit carried away with spinning thing and think I lost some polys somewhere along the way. (Must backup more.)Onto splines. - P.D.
