  1. Wallace

    I have been searching for a series like this for a long long time. Joey Mildenberger does an excellent job demonstrating and explaining the hows and whys of hand drawn special effects. His experience and know how come across loud and clear.

    As with every offer on Aaron Blaise’s website be it Aaron Blaise or another pro, you can be assured of the expertise of the person doing the series and that their instructions are easily understood. I have a good number of videos from Creature Art Teacher and have been extremely pleased with all of them.

    I highly recommend this video to anyone interested in animation. It is worth every penny. In fact it is a bargain. I also recommend spending the extra $5.00 for the ability to download the videos. I appreciate the option offered here. My internet isn’t the best and this is a big help.

    Thanks Joey Mildenberger for this great series and Aaron Blaise for making it available.

    Absolutely love this course. I have been wanting a 2DFX course for a while and this did not disappoint. I feel I learned a lot from this course and love how Joey broke down the animated effects from some of the films he worked on.

  3. Lynn Schade

    What a cool course for drawing. My granddaughters and I will have great fun learning so much about animation.

  4. Julia Speropoulos

    Such a useful course on 2d fx animation, hand drawn, paper as well as digital animation. This is such an anticipated course, since I’m currently working on my first 2d hand drawn animation short film. So, this is gold for me. Im learning so much, this opens new doors in my mind, and gives me so much information that i can apply to my own 2d fx. Joe Mildenberger is literally a master of his trade. Thank you so much Creature Art teacher for bringing such amazing artists/teachers to us. I can’t wait for 2dfx advanced course!
