About the instructor
Though I just started the first lesson, it's a very good lesson to follow, easy to understanding. I like it.
I think at an intermediate level this course is an excellent resource that benefits the viewers and their intentions. It does bring a brand-new style to me. I never heard Guochao before, there're so many Chinese elements that really appeals to me. The most comfortable is that he explains every detail as he draws and sketches, this is really nice.
Great teaching, easy to follow, This is a new period I've never met before. It's so cool! I've learnt so much and I can't wait to see what I'm able to do at the end!
