Hey Aaron! Thanks for your wonderful lesson! I’m really looking forward to seeing more of your art tips. Each new passing week I find myself visiting your site to check out if there is more stuff available to watch! It’s really inspiring to see you draw and I admire your level of skill and knowledge. Nothing less from a Glen Keane’s “apprentice” I guess. And you can tell you’ve really pushed your artistic skills to the highest level, I mean look at the way you can just make a fantastic cat face from scratch with an awesome expression. It’s just breathtaking. I’m a 3D junior animator working on spanish company Lightbox Entertainment, but very familiar with drawing. I’m really eager to develop my 2D/traditional animation and art skills so that I may perhaps one day create magic that can inspire people. Thanks for your great and kind share :) Tiago
