Eric Yac - Before and After

Here's a great example of the kind of progress our students make in a short period of time at the Academy.

Eric Yac started with us last semester in January, 2010. He enrolled in Character Design I, which is a foundation class for our program. This is his first attempt at incorporating basic fundamentals into his drawing. He created these sketches on January 5, the first day of class as you can see from the date he wrote on the page.

Now take a look at what Eric was doing only 17 days later, while working on an assignment at home. Clicking on the images will give you a better view.

It's hard to believe this was done by the same artist, but it was, and in only 2 weeks and 3 days after his initial class sketches. His later drawings show even more improvement. Now Eric is drawing with so much confidence, he's teaching others on his own.

Eric is indicative of why The Animation Academy enjoys such a great reputation in our industry. We can look forward to many more interesting works from Eric in the days ahead.
