"Likeness is a good thing to showcase that you know stuff because likeness takes a huge amount of time and to see the subtleties of the form."
GET IN TOUCH WITH ROGER MAGRINI
"I had teachers from online courses, and I had mentorships that helped a lot. Mentors and courses, of course, the guys really know what they're doing, like they have had previous mistakes. So, they can pass it on to you, like I made this mistake and that mistake and asking around."
