Vertex Week schedule
We have more animation tutorials today, including a double-dose where Netflix animator Jackie Droujko first explains how to warm up your animation design skills and then shares her workflow for speedpainting a character design.
We also have a great video workshop from video game concept artist Germán Reina Carmona, where he explains how to improve your character design. Carmona is the talented artist behind the character designs of hit indie video game Olli Olli World.
