The courses you have provided and the hard work you put into them are literally a life saver to me and there’s probably no other way, or no better way, I would have found to course correct my life. That’s why I’m so driven to make sure I understand and retain everything the best I possibly can on a professional level, I don’t want to miss a thing that might help me! – QuestRegister
I’ve had so many ‘eureka!’ moments because of CG Cookie’s instructors…and not just because of the tutorials! The exercises, the gamification, and the hands-on with very knowledgeable and very approachable instructors allow CG Cookie to become more than just a tutorial site. It’s a university. It’s a place that allows you to learn in multiple ways. The site, the people and atmosphere are as professional and laid back. What more could you want?
CG Cookie is great. It is packed with friendly, knowledgeable, creative artists that want us all to thrive in a positive environment. And so many disciplines are represented. It’s all top shelf.
My problem as a beginner artist and developer was not a lack of creativity, but a lack of understanding the workflow of what it took to make things happen. The intensive course on modeling and important game assets took me from conceptual art all the way to the final steps. CGCookie is the hidden gem for all aspiring or developing artists. The CGCookie team knows their stuff.
When trying to find a place to first start Blender most sites are far from being friendly in the beginning. CG Cookie is considered to be the first place to start learning and rightfully so.
[Jonathan] picks up the Basics incredibly and explains each step with thorough explanation of function and short key, I ended making a very basic portfolio in the first month of citizenship.
