I was able to learn how to do things and I was also able to know what I need to work on after the course which will help me down the line.
Mitchell R. King
Art Heroes student, 2020
I learn new techniques to create art from the instructor who is the expert. Also, I got a lot of feedback to help me improve from other instructors and fellow students.

I learned a lot, so I think it is super recomendable. The workflow and the constant correction of the instructor has given me another view of my work process.

Julio Padula, Argentina
Art Heroes student, 2020
I loved the length of the videos, it covered enough for me and then let me go off and figure stuff out for myself. The character I had was not the same as in the videos and there was a lot of room to go my own way. For me that was good as I had done enough step by step courses and some things don't stick that way. But using what I was taught in the videos on my own character brought up new challenges and locked a few things into place.
Sean Olsen, Ireland

The instructor gave very good advice and the pace of the course was just right. I learned lots and faster way to learn than just looking around random Youtube by myself.

FAQs

When does the program start?
The program is available on-demand! As soon you complete your enrollment, you can start learning.
Can I 3D print anything? What about toys? Jewelry? Statues? Prototypes?
Yes, you can 3D print, literally, anything.

To make this course more interesting and complex, we chose a model with plenty of details that need to be split into various pieces. You can apply this knowledge to any other objects and 3D print your jewelry, prototypes, toys or collectibles, in any material.
Can I do the course even if I'm new to 3D printing?
Yes, of course. There are no pre-requisites for joining the course. If you want to 3D print your own model, we recommend having it ready in Zbrush.
Is the course live or recorded?
The bulk of the program is offered as pre-recorded HD-quality videos. There's a private community of the program where you are able to get your questions answered.
Do I need to own a 3D printer to take this course
No, you don't. Most of our students 3D print their models on-demand (online with cloud services like Shapeways, iMaterialize and Sculpteo). You can buy a 3D printer later on if you decide you need one!
How much time does it take to complete the program?
The program is split on 4 modules, and we estimate about 3-4 hours of workload per module.

At a relaxed pace, you can do it in a month. At a fast pace, you can even complete it in a week.
Are there any payment plans?
Email us if you want to split the payment into 3 equal parts, and we'll help you get set up.
