SUMMER REGISTRATION OPENS MAY 3RD
Cody Grech

Awesome teacher! I would take other classes taught by David without giving it second thought. Very knowledgeable and friendly, assignments are paced very well, lots of great info that is useful with real applications.

Laura Meijer

David Mooy speaks in a relaxed manner and doesn’t sound rushed, which is a big plus for students who are not native English speakers.

Michael Paolini

It is like learning from a real seasoned veteran of the industry. Mooy seemed passionately interested about what he does — and clearly knows his stuff — and you can obviously see that in the Q&As, where he answered a question it would generate more discussion and it was all so interesting to listen to and you learned so much.

Russel Aronchick

David presented the material in a very easy to understand way and the course itself was definitely a good kickstart into learning the basics of Maya.

Nathanielle Onchengo

Mr. David Mooy, is a great instructor. Really shows that he loves teaching, and can teach effectively.

Andre da Silva

The instructor was fantastic. My feedback were always clear and helpful with additional tips. I could definitely consider another course that Hunton is lecturing.

Melissa Manderbach

Hunton was super helpful each week with his feedback. I felt that, with his help, I could push myself to improve my model each iteration.

Daria Lezucha

She was very interested in the questions we had, encouraging and gave really good and constrictive feedback. She was exactly the instructor that I needed to keep me motivated and comfortable to be involved in class discussions.

Sian Geraghty

Loved Vidya’s substance lecture. She made it so easy to get started. Also appreciated the MASH and topology lectures as well.

Christoph Lechler

Because of Vidya’s feedback, I knew where I had to focus. I learned some new techniques in modeling and unwrapping, which also will helped me beyond this course.

Jahrut Kaptan

Vidya was awesome at teaching us about every aspect. She always made an effort to be motivating and helping us.

Taylor Yoon

Michael is a very efficient and energetic instructor, which I love because the course material can become so much more dense. I feel like I got to learn a lot in a very short amount of time because of that.

Molly Gilmore

He is extremely knowledgeable and very generous in how he shares what he knows with the class.

Travis Baptiste

One of the greatest teachers I’ve ever had. Always had more to teach and show while doing so in a way that was quick to grasp. I did not expect my comfort in Zbrush to scale so fast in several weeks.

Ben Donely

He did a great job of showing us all the possibilities that exist from different workflows to different artists and really set us on a path for success following the courses conclusion.

Takahiro Goto

Michael’s encouraging approach made learning on this course a great joy as well as a great challenge. You can really feel welcomed into the world of 3D if you’re a newcomer.

Charlotte Dobson

Michael has been an amazing tutor. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this course to anyone and I’d also be very keen to enroll in a course with Michael again.

Joshua Kinney

Christian was outstanding. My knowledge gained during this class has multiplied tenfold without a doubt. Christian helped me to understand the human form rather than memorizing shapes and hoping that it turns into a human model.

Sergio Álvarez

Great teacher who always gives the best for his students to learn anatomy and design.

Lisa Cowen

Excellent and professional. I really got a lot of value from this course.

Joshua Goodell

I’ve had the privilege to learn from multiple instructors the last 2 years or so, and I’ve learned that just because someone is a great artist doesn’t necessarily mean they will be great INSTRUCTORS. Christian is the rare exception of being great at both, and it was definitely an honor to be part of the course!

JD Gardner

Christian is awesome—he really knows his stuff. I thought he was going to be a bit academic at first, but he has a hysterical sense of humor that occasionally comes through!

Bethnay Maguire

Christian was a great instructor, who cared about his students, and wanted them to do well. His level of explanation and the depth he could go into was fantastic and really gave me a deeper understanding of human anatomy. I’m very grateful for having the opportunity to partake in a course like it and be taught by someone as talented as Christian.

Ivan Chan

Christian is an awesome instructor. Very informative and helpful. Always encouraged us to use the forums and such as well and be a class rather than just being individual students.

Meihe Wu

Tan is very smart, knowledgable, and always supportive. He gives wise suggestions to our career, always listen and responds to any of our questions or concerns right away. He is so hardworking and he is an excellent teacher.

Jacek Krzesinski

Dmitrij’s dedication is amazing. He really cares about the students and provides thorough feedbacks and explanations.

Alex Wink

Dmitrij Leppee offers a state-of-the-art course and it was beyond my expectations. He’s also a brilliant artist and teacher, really generous indeed. The feedbacks were extremely helpful with a lot of detailed explanations. Although I was not able to follow all the lessons so far because of my work, I intend to continue studying with the videos and materials Dmitrij’s prepared to us. I can say that I’ve learnt a lot by now and I’m sure I’ll find much more precious knowledge through this learning path. Congrats Dmitrij and CGMA on this outstanding course!

Peter Paterson

Chris has a kind, supportive way about him while clearly getting across his constructive and thought-provoking criticism that support better learning, observation and growth.

Jorge Adnel Martin

Pete is very talented and has really helped me improve in the past weeks. I learned a lot and always provided very detailed explanations.

Diego Rodriguez

Pete is the best teacher I’ve ever had. I learned a lot in the Q&A sessions and his weekly feedback was very useful. There were things I’ve never done before this class, moments of frustration that I was able to solve thanks to his advice.

Mingshun Zhu

The instructor is passionate about teaching which helped me better understand the workflow.

Joaquin Cossio

Pete is an amazing artist with a lot of knowledge, he has the ability to share it in a very clear way.

Mickey Goese

Great class and teacher. I like how the class hits realism and stylized aesthetics and touches on other topics like expressions with blendshapes. The workflow and analysis of the human head was eye-opening and really helped me improve my work where I was previously hitting a wall. This class was a great experience.

Alexander Eibler

Just a great instructor. Learned a ton, again.

Rene Vidra

Pete is an awesome instructor and really pushes you to improve your skill set. Answered questions immediately in the Q&A sessions and really cares about individual progress!

Emmanuel Gonzalez

Pete is a fantastic instructor and is always on top of his students questions and request. Would definitely recommend this course to anyone that has a good experience with 3D Characters and wants to take their skills to an expert level.

Mario Cortez

It’s been the best character class I’ve taken and I’ve taken many. Knows the material very well and sets the bar high which helps with my improvement.

David Reynolds

Patrick was a great instructor. An excellent teacher and a very positive and enthusiastic motivator.

Carsen Kelliher

Patrick went above and beyond to give me the guidance and instruction I needed despite my difficult personal schedule.

Kuan Han Wang

[Patrick] has a good understanding for the game creation workflow and the human anatomy as well, So i have a lot of understanding for both as well.

Elisabeth Krainer

Patrick‘s feedback was always on point and his way of giving it made it easy to adopt it.

Tyler Picking

Patrick was very professional, and personable. Very much wanted to help you learn.

Karina Bichler

Kristin was super kind and was always available and really helpful.

Andrew Brownridge

Very enthusiastic and friendly.

Christian Gonzalez

Honestly, Hannah is the best instructor I’ve had since graduating university.

Armando Durruthy

Hannah Kang is an exceptionally talented artist that brings a real world perspective on how to execute at the highest levels of the entertainment industry. Hannah gives excellent instruction, insight and direction on what principles to focus on when articulating aesthetics and design in 3D space. Being able to learn from Hannah in a live Q&A environment with weekly dialogue has really helped expedite my learning and progress. Hannah’s class is much appreciated and highly recommended.

Andrea Garcia

Hannah was a sensational teacher. I think she was very understanding and always interested in the student’s work and improvement. I admire how much effort she puts in every one of the critics.

Simón Bustamante

Being a self-taught artist is fine for creating troubleshooting skills and discipline, but the experience of a production artist is priceless. Hannah gave us the most; her experience and great feedback based on her knowledge in the field.

Kirsten Nuyts

In many ways Hannah pushed me, technical and artistic. Since I was sort of new to the tools, her structured way of working and clear step by step work approach was just perfect.

Barbara Hvidt

He has such an unfathomable enthusiasm for anatomy and for passing on his knowledge.

Cody Rose

Very well versed in human anatomy, and the art of teaching and conveying clearly multiple ideas and / or concepts to other people. Also, very interested in making sure their students understand clearly the knowledge they make so much effort to offer.

Khadeeja Jamaal

The best teacher I have ever had. The effort he puts is inspiring. I feel like he really has made a massive difference to my learning. I understand so much more. so good!

Daria Gonzalez

Mr Rey is a great instructor — thoughtful, passionate about his craft, caring about his students and extremely knowledgeable.

Laurel Van Patten

Mr. Rey was great!
