Hannah Williamson - Before and After

Take a look at the progress that Hannah Williamson has made in the Background Design and Perspective class she's currently enrolled in here at The Animation Academy in Burbank.

This is where she started from while embarking on the completion of some of her very first assignments...

Here's where Hannah is at a few sessions into the class...

It's amazing the artistic progress one can make by learning about and implementing basic fundamentals into one's art. Hannah is approaching a professional level with her skills early in her career.

The Animation Academy excels in helping artists develop a solid foundation to their abilities and our exceptional students always put us in a great light thanks to the very impressive work they create.

He's gotten off to a great start as the images below can attest. These are some of the character concept sketches Chris created since he's been back...
