Gabriel Carson - Before & After

I think this makes a great testament as to the effectiveness of the Academy's online version of our Character Design class. This is the work of Gabriel Carson, a student from Michigan who's been enrolled with us since last month. Here's his first class assignment submitted on August 17.

And here's Gabriel's latest assignment, submitted yesterday on September 14, less than a month from his previous work above.

No, your eyes are not deceiving you, and yes, that is indeed the very same artist. Even though there's still a few minor issues that need to be addressed in his work, the extraordinary improvement you see in Gabriel's skill is not uncommon for students attending our sessions in Burbank, but it's even more remarkable when you consider that this student has been studying with us through the Internet. Our online program is very effective and depending upon the effort a student puts into their assignments and their art, the results can oftentimes be nothing less than amazing.

Congrats to you, Gabriel! You've contributed significantly to the legacy of the Academy by virtue of your excellence.
