What is this course project about?
Following the indications of Zigor, you will create your own lyrics, with any of the techniques and aspects that you have explained. One of the things that Zigor is going to propose to you, will be that among all the 3D letters creations of the students of the course that want to participate, they can share, create and play with them, making funny labels and words, with letters from all the students.
Who is it for?
