Aaron Limonick is an excellent instructor and I really valued the lectures and individual feedback. I think that is one of the most important benefits that CGMA provides: real feedback and advice from the instructor. Aaron was great and I would absolutely take other courses that he teaches!
Aaron is hands down the best teacher I've ever had. I've learned more from him in 8 weeks than I have at my art college in 2 years. One more reason I'm making the full switch to you guys. Top notch stuff. Great honor to have him as a teacher.
The class was really informative, thank you for all your help!
Aaron was a very articulate and fun instructor, always motivated and motivating! I'll definitively miss him!
Loved having Aaron as an instructor. He gave the class a wealth of knowledge and techniques on the concept art process. It has really helped me create better environment pieces for sure.
I loved this intructor (Aaron Limonick) and I think he is an excellent teacher, not just a talented professional. This was my first class with CGMA but I was so immediately pleased with the course that I signed up for two more next term.
