    Good job, not enough time spent on tools, widgets, UI, etc for this to be a 100% beginner tutorial, but very good job. Easy to follow and reproduce.

    Once again, I got to learn so much from a course I thought would be a piece of cake. It goes from the very basics to some really cool (a bit more advanced) techniques that really boost up your game. 10/10 recommended!

    If you've learned the basics, this is a great course to level up your game. Quite beginner friendly, but you may want to take the intro course, and maybe the gameboy one first. There's a little bit of everything here: creative uses of low-poly modelling, texture painting, lighting, all kept quite simple, but yielding some really nice results!
