  • Missing skin alphas

    The course overall it’s quite good, but I can’t find a lot of the alphas used in the course for the hand and arm skin.
    The alpha Folder contains only the alphas, where is the rest?

    • We’re having a look now and it sounds like you need to use a different archiver for extracting the zip. We also get the same error here, but as soon as you switch to Keka if you’re on a Mac or 7Zip for Windows, the archive opens without any problems. Give it a go and let us know if it works 🙂

  • Probably my favorite purchase so far

    The course comes in easily digestible chunks that are straight to the point and don’t waste your time, and comes with plenty of references on top of project files to get you started. With each program, he teaches you the basics of navigating and even shows tricks that can help you with your sculpting. The Maya portion of the course can be followed with any other 3D program as long as you know how to use it. I highly recommend it
