Testimonials Of Our Programs

"Everyone told me to forget about trying to be a character artist, that artists have been trying for 6-7 years and that it would take me years before i get that chance. Now here i am making characters for an unannounced triple A title and already have watchdogs 2 in my resume. I feel like saying thank you to you and all the instructors here is not enough, but it's all I can say really, thank you so much for making my dream come true."

Testimonial
Sands Kopaei

"I think i had a vague idea of how to make a character for games before but now I am much more confident. When I compare my new work with my old work it is just really better. This is the first time I was doing something realistic and it was a huge step for me and it went really well. "

Testimonial
Océane Bidou

"Seriously....last weekend, i was like "i'm seeing a movie where Hosein did the likeness and one of my fellow students ran one of the biggest doll companies around for years, i'm totally in the right place."

What are my financing options for an immersive program?

What is the difference between the Bootcamp and a class?

The Bootcamps are more intensive and more focused on your work. A class is a great introduction to content but to really grow we recommend bootcamps.
