    • Mary Highstreet

      Fantastic class! Nate is a great teacher and an incredible resource, I’m so thankful for his dedication to teaching!!

    • Devere Wint

      The course content is broken down structurally so that it allowed for nice linear progression and growth. I am leaving with a better understanding of character design.

    • John Steventon

      Nate Wragg continued to impress me with his knowledge of the material, and the skills he displayed in demos and in the Q&As! He really knows his stuff, and the fact that he is willing to share that knowledge with us is really great. He is also open and honest about the industry, and what we will face when we get there. Honestly, I feel honored to have studied with him, and hope to work with him in the future.

    • Melis Malatani

      Really enjoy Nate Wragg’s approach to teaching online. It felt authentic and really helpful. This was my second course with him instructing, both times were equally great.

    • James Couture

      This course really brought me back to the basics of good character design. It has helped me break bad habits when it comes to drawing and designing characters and has replaced those habits with the fundamentals of good visual design. I’ve learned a lot about the industry as well, and have a clearer vision of what it may be like to work at an animation studio one day.
