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.

Aadil Sharif

Nestor is really good at his craft. I enjoyed learning from him. He has shown various techniques to improve our foliage work.

Kevin Andan

I felt the instructor (Nestor) was very understanding of where students were at in terms of having time to apply to the course and outside issues that would affect weekly submissions

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.

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.

George Lee

Michael was very knowledgeable and was generous with his homework reviews. His sculpt overs really helped me see the areas I needed to improve.

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.

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.

Dave

Great teacher. Really solid directions and explanations around ‘why’ you use the tools your doing as opposed to just outlining general best practices.

Mitch

Clinton is by far the best teacher I’ve experienced on CGMA so far. He’s kind, patient and very much into detail when answering a question.

Kat

This is my first time learning the Unreal Engine, it’s a LOT to take in, but really good clear information was given through the course, and Clinton is an excellent Instructor who broke things down into chunks for easier learning! At the end of the course, I feel that I understand the basics and can have some confidence moving onwards in learning

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

Diego Aguilar

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

He simplify a very hard and complicated subject (Hair for games) and makes it easy to understand and to apply, Amazing job by the instructor!

Nicolas Rosenthal

Very skilled at what he does which not only shows in the end result but also in how he approaches things. Very professional

Conor J

Everything about the course has been fantastic. Jayson provided very clear and thorough explanations when it came to simulating real-time cloth.

Conor J

I actually can’t describe how much I needed this course. It gave me all the tools, explanations, education and confidence to push my work to the next level. It was well worth the time, effort and money. Jayson is an excellent mentor on top of that.

Bartłomiej D

Jayson is awesome….He didn’t just check for mistakes I made. He has sincere interest to teach us how to push the quality of our assets even further.

Lorraine Berry

Pete Zoppi has a wealth of wide ranging experience and is an extremely good tutor able to break down complex subjects into an easily digestible form.

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.

Ian Miley

Pete is a very kind, intelligent teacher with immeasurable artistic talent and ability. He always responded to my emails with kind, helpful answers and feedback.

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.

Erol Nurgel

[Daniel] did not miss a single detail from all my submissions, and helped me improve my eye for detail, PBR workflow, among other things. The way he comunicates and explains the reasons why is really really good, I never once felt that I was being critiqued it was more like a conversation on how I can improve, and what to focus on and why. It was an amzing course, thank you.

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!
