  • Missing information

    There is clearly a missing video between chapter 3 and chapter 4. In chapter 4 the instructor mention duplicating objects that he shown us how to do but that’s not the case.

    There is also other cases trought the course that he mention not showing the modeling process of something because he supposely already shown it, wich is not the case.

    I suggest that the instructor review this tutorial and ensure that everything that he intented to show us is here.

  • Good, should've read the description more closely

    The tutorial is great for learning how to create hard surface objects (in this particular case a gun) effectively, however I bought this assuming it was a tutorial on how to make the gun in the videos. That’s my fault for not reading the description closely enough. All in all, I love it, and I’m just following along with it using a gun design I got off of art station!
