I've only watched about 3/4 of his first DVD. I was a little trepidatious because he seems a bit more dry and methodical than your average Gnomon DVD Instructor. He uses charts and seems very well organized. But gawd, the stuff is great. It's stuff you would never pick up anywhere else, especially as a solo artist. I don't do boujou (sp?) and have pretty much moved on to XSI from Maya, but there's so much stuff on there that is universally applicable. I can't wait to watch the second.
