My first 3d model that I ever made was from one of your tutorials, and that was about 3 years ago lol

Bruno Willian says:

Thanks for the videos Mike, thanks to you I ended up learning a lot about the Maya 2018

I’m in a traditional school, and have enjoyed watching (almost) all of your videos. One thing I did notice, is the inside face from neck to head. It’s a good starter video, nonetheless. Have you thought of teaching about the cleanup tool for problematic geometry? And then, of course, how to get rid of those issues so during animation & render, you don’t get funky results.
Always enjoy watching different styles and ideas of going about making stuff though.
