We focus on education for the Independent (Indie) artist and studio. This means we intentionally don't cover mass variety of softwares. Instead we focus on a pipeline that we believe works for any artists to become successful at their craft: Creating video games, short films, 3d models for printing, concept art and or traditional sculpting with clay.

Curious on how we create tutorials?

It is not as straight forward as you may think. It involves more than consuming mass amounts of coffee. :) Learn how
