I've been taught by many art teachers, both in person and online and in the UK as well as in Japan, and I can say with sincerity that Dzu is a good teacher. Here are three things I liked about Dzu as a teacher: -He treats each student in the same manner. (In other words, no matter what level you are at, he cares for the student and also doesn't seem to favour particular students). -His advice is concise and practical -He can walk the talk. (In other words he can demonstrate how to create great art.)

Dzu is an awesome guy and a great instructor. He gave some really good insight into how the industry works, how he got his foot in the door and i really wish i had gotten more than 8 weeks to be in his class. Really happy i was able to have Dzu as an instructor. I could talk to him all day .

Dzu Ngyuen is a straight forward, down to earth guy. He did his best at answering questions and gave substantial answers to said question. He is a very good instructor.

Thanks! I learned a lot and I feel way more comfortable with approaching environments, even with things outside my visual library. I was pretty paralyzed before taking this class.
