As I said earlier, I recommend this course for everyone; doctors included (:\n\nI like how this course was treated in a different way. We see people doing the job on there ground, that's interesting.

Fun and challenging to me. Is not easy to me to create new characters, but with this practice and professional examples, I feel more confident to just do and see what happens. Thank you, very much.

For the first course, you will only be drawing. You will not learn anything about programming video games. It was nice that they showed famous artists for cartoons, but the videos felt too long, with dialogues that felt like rambling at times.

This course expanded my mind into creating a character inspired by surroundings. I have designed characters before in class but this was the next level i needed!

I would have liked to get input on my work by an instructor instead of just other students, but it was a good exercise to hone my skills. I wouldn't pay for credit because I feel like my work isn't being professionally graded.

Nice use of iteration to push your ideas of who or what a character should or could look like.

I liked the talks a lot but didnt expect to be forced to draw :)

I wish this class had more actual lessons on character design concepts and philosophies rather than the demonstrations it used.

I like the course but missing some basics of character design. As body shapes drawing, personalities, i wanted some basics on how to draw and approach to designing characters.

Grades were complicated to get (due to few people taking it)

This was probably my favorite course of the 4 pre capstone courses. Having played video games pre Atari, the other classes weren't a huge surprise but the activities were fun. This is the first one that really challenged me to get out of my comfort zone.

Very cool to see other artists in their "zone" talking about their experiences and giving some advice, gave 4 stars instead of 5 just because plenty of the talking isn't as informative as I would have liked.

It was a fun course, not sure about the educational content, but it was fun.

I believe that exaggerated the amount of minutes per video and lack of theory, but it was still a good course.

Instruction was through watching other characters designers talk about their process.

I would like a different approach on the way this course is given to the student. The first couple of classes were really cool and inspiring, but the later two became more of the same and kinda took my inspiration and motivation down to finish the course.

While the information given by Fran was useful, the part where other artists talk is not presented well.

First week and last week were pretty useful with some good tips from the videos... the other weeks not so much.

The interviews were great, and useful to see a real experienced designer, however the contents in the course were almost nonexistent. The homework was well planed but it depends much more in the student to learn something that the contents exposed in the videos. Tips aren't the same as methodologies and content in character design.

I liked the assignments and the creative ideas discussed in the class. However, I wish there had been more practical, step-by-step instruction in approaching design work; game artists of more diverse styles; and some discussion of game character design as a career.

Very open way of learning. Few talks with people from the industry, sharing their approach.
Not much of fundamental knowledge.
Generally great motivator to exercise Character Design. Not that great resource to learn from a beginning.

It is cool. but it does not give any certificate of completion at the end as other courses do.

great first week, I like Fran's First week video, with the puppets and very engaging interaction,
the next following 3 weeks are total bummer, It does give some tips for character design (such as what is tangent, or some other design tips), but it feels like a bloated interview and not a class-like experience. Great first week, terrible following week
