  • great video, but skillshare isnt the best place to learn. ofc skillshare costs money which is a big reason, but even if you got the money to spend there are amazing youtubers like jperm i would reccoment to learn from. its free, its how i learned, and its straight forward. I would reccomend cubeheads video and pdf if you want to learn 2 look oll (the oriented edges cases)
