    Ben is very focused on the student—he gives long and outstanding homework feedbacks.

  • Tim Brakensiek

    Ben was great, I really enjoyed his instruction and he really knows Substance Designer and Painter and can relate his knowledge well.

  • Malin Runsten Fredriksson

    Really happy to have Ben as an instructor! His videos and feedback are simple and clear, and I never felt that I was completely lost when taking the course. He also really went out of his way to answer all kinds of questions, especially in the Q&A. I took this course to learn the tools and mindset of Substance, and I believe I achieved this goal with this course.

  • Sam Cole

    I really appreciated the frequency of feedback Ben was able to give. It really helped me improve rapidly week-to-week.

  • Bryan Pitt

    Ben was absolutely fantastic to learn from. I felt pretty intimidated trying to learn game art from a pro but he was very open and nice. He made it easy to ask questions and gave thorough answers.

  • James Morgan

    Ben did a great job of breaking it down in a clear and concise manner with no fluff—just the theories and professional practices to use and get great results. So thanks again for all the effort he put in and the speedy reviews and feedback.

  • Ashley Wade

    I appreciated Ben’s attention to detail during this course. His openness made it easy to ask questions, and his willingness to explain even small things made it feel like he cared about my personal growth.

  • Ian Mize

    Ben, is by far the most thorough instructor I have had at CGMA. All of my classes have been great but I feel like I have gained the most constructive learning from this course. Thank you endlessly!
