Thanks for the post Xia. I was blown away by Avatar. Can't wait for more speed drawings too!

This might seem random, but how do you pronounce Xia? I've been curious for a while.

Maybe you could say "This is Xia from" in the next video?

Thanks for all the inspiration.

Zy> Yeah...right?

Mario> Thanks, me too. It's really ground breaking experience.

Aaron> Thank brother, more will come for sure... did a few this week...none of them turn out good so I have to thrown them away. As for Xia--> it's more like "Z" sound Zee-ah. It's a short from Xiao --> Zee-awe:)

Xia> man this is MINDBLOWING!! it's a huge step in both art and film industry... i can't believe how this had a completely new way for making cgi. Masterpiece... thank you so much for sharing it :)

Sorry to bother but I have a question.I recently bought two of the tutorials on your website:

Face constructed part 2 and Archetype design

And well I think I did not get all the videos when I downloaded.Because Face tutorial extracts 4 chapters of video files and then suddenly a chapter 8 video.

The archetype tutorial extracts only 4 chapters with just the first character being finished and at the end of chapter 4 you announce a chapter 5 but I did not recieve the file.

I am not sure if anyone else ha d prob like this but I wanted to let you know and hopefully you will answer me,

Ps.You really kick ass at drawing mate love your work,

Ciro> Did you make sure that you download all the zip files on the page?

1) Download all the zip files on the pages
2) Extracted all the zip files
3) Then you will see all the chapters and added on materials.

let me know if there are still problem downloading the vids.
