What Björn Crombach says about his experience with the course

“I started this course with some prior maya knowledge, but regardless of that, I still picked up a lot of things in the first lessons. The course is very well structured and the videos progress at a good pace.

There is a very in-depth part about topology that teaches important rules and solutions like for example, how to avoid pinching or manipulating edge flow and much more.

These principals and the practical modeling exercises gave me a much better understanding of SubD modeling with proper topology, that I am now applying in my own projects. I also appreciate the feedback on my work from Mario and the Discord group members, it really is crucial to know if something is right or wrong, to not build any bad habits.”

What Alexandre Nquyen says about his experience with the course

“For me, Mario’s Training has been a really good reconciliation with modeling. I love how the courses are organized, and the way the explanations are getting clear right from course one to course six.

Over the Masterclass, you’re getting a lot of tips that are really useful with solid examples. In the end, I really felt I had a solid base to increase the difficulty of my personal projects. The big pro, for me, is the community inside the discord channel. It is really active and always willing to help.

In my opinion, this is what makes you go forward in your art, finding your mistakes, correct them then never stop doing. And Mario & the community is always there to help you make your models reach the next step. So if you want good foundations for your modeling skills, you definitely want to follow these courses.”

Is rendering included, or is only 3D modeling covered?

Both 3D Modeling and Rendering with Arnold is included in this training.

Do I need to pay extra for new updates to this training?

No, all updates are free, including new courses coming to classes, like Modeling a drone, Modeling a racer, Intro to UV´s, etc.

I am a beginner to 3D modeling, can I still take this course?

This training is very beginner-friendly and has linear training curve. We start from the basics and theory of 3D modeling, then we slowly scale up in difficulty. All beginner courses have step by step workflow with real-time videos.

Can I ask questions in case I do not understand something?

Yes you can! We have a Private Discord Channel for everyone enrolled in this course. You can also share your project files, and receive an in-depth feedback on your progress in one of our weekly/monthly review videos in Class Six. That way you can be sure you are on the right track.

Can I download the videos or is this online only training?

This is online training that contains videos, writen text and images. Project files are available for downlaod.
