  1. Your videos are FABULOUS! To the point and fun to watch so thanks for sharing. I like that you went through your process, for example using bezier warp to make the cameras spin, I tend to do everything the hard way so stuff like that is always a plus to learn. And the fact you're always integrating texture with things is really cool too!! Under #1's leaf is probably the same thing you find under a Ken doll's pants–NADA! (ha!)

  2. Exactly one of the things I need to share with my students.
    Curious why you didn't use the Repeater to smooth the process of making all the cameras? I guess it's hard to say which way is more efficient.

  3. Did anyone tell you how amazing you are? Because you are, and I think I'm going to watch all of your videos eventually. I learned so much it's always inspiring to see how others approach tasks, even if I'm into more Kyle Cooper/David Carson-esque style.

  4. Hey man great tutorial, but instead of duplicating and arranging layers in bricks format, you can use "CC RepeTile ->Tiling -> Brick .
    Have a nice day guys and Subscribe this awesome channel!
