I'd always loved the Draw with Jazza youtube channel and I was ecstatic when he announced he was releasing a book. I had such high hopes for this book and it certainly didn't disappoint. It was funny and insightful in the character design process. I highly recommend it for anyone interesting in concept art or creating OCs .
