WINTER REGISTRATION OPENS OCTOBER 18TH
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.

Martin Hall

Mr David Mooy has the ideal teaching style for helping learners at the early stage of their journey, not only to develop skills quickly, but also to be enthused and excited about the learning journey ahead. He’s patient, positive, personable and knows his subjects inside out.

Flynn Donaghey

I just want to say how great David was as an instructor, his videos were full of info and yet he still managed to make them upbeat and interesting. His feedback was always encouraging and made me want to get better for the next week’s assignment.

Vitaly Bonndar

I really like Clinton’s style of teaching. He explains any topic in a way that’s very accessible and detailed. I would love to have gone through another course with such a great teacher.

James Morgan

Clinton was a great instructor providing excellent feedback great tips and techniques. He also provided extra material relating to each week’s theme or area. This adds more value to course, providing tutorials and documents to continue study.

JD Gardner

Clinton is amazing; I would absolutely take another class with him in a second. Very personable and active in the forums, great with specific feedback examples, and he clearly knows his technical stuff.

Andy Fraser

He was great. Love that he found documentations on each subject that we were learning to help us further our education.

Luca Tietto

He was really clear during the lectures and has incredible patience. Never received late a feedback or email. Definitely an incredible teacher and artist!

Caitlyn Kenney

Clinton is a very good teacher. He explains things well and is easy to understand. He went above and beyond the class material and explained other things too, and answered our questions about the industry.

Virendra Pratap Singh

This course was an amazing experience. Clinton is simply outstanding both in his knowledge and the way he teaches.

Zian Hsu

Clinton explained all fundamental very clearly and will provide a lot of article links you may need, also the reviews were always on point! Best teacher ever!

Parker Miltsch

Clinton always made sure you understood what he was teaching and would go over anything and everything with you until it clicked without hesitation.

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.

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!

Kenny Oprins

I like how Dmitrij also allowed for casual conversations during Q&A if no immediate questions were at hand. Makes it felt welcoming and not as rigid. He talked about his own personal interests as well and fields he is trying to improve on himself. Mark of a great artist!

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.

Ben Donley

Naky is a very passionate teacher whos helped me really understand the process and build confidence for my future of hair card placement

Hair creation has been a breeze with Naky’s teachings, it makes sense, it’s easier to approach and I’m more eager to find new methods on a task that I used to avoid before this course.

Khaldoun Jreisat Elias

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!

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.

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

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.
