"Pierrick did an outstanding job on putting together a high quality course, that is showing you everything you need to know about creating a stunning looking 3d character in Blender. From preparation over sculpting, modeling and retopology to the whole texturing and shading workflow, everything is included. I especially liked the texturing part, which reveals great techniques I will put to good use in future projects. So, if you want to learn character creation in Blender, don't hesitate to grab this great course!"   Zacharias Reinhardt 3D Artist & Blender Trainer


"Definitely check out this magnificent course, if you want to learn character creation from scratch! There is hardly any part of the process not shown in this exhaustive bunch of tutorials and timelapses. Pierrick shows us that you don't really need rocket science to create fantastic characters!"

Lukas Walzer - 3D Artist at UP design studio Stuttgart


"All I can say everyone, is you will without a doubt grow at least 10 "Blender Units" in your skills after doing one of Pierrick's courses! I did his "CliffTower" course and it was the best decision of the year. This will be like that one on steroids. ;)".
