Maximo "Pit" Bibiloni
I'm still struggling to jump in the AAA/ aa industry, my bachelor degrees is in fine arts, and i learn proper zbrushing and character art with artheroes programs. Also i was stucked on the companies on my city or country and started networking and get to know other fellow 3d artists from around the world trough artheroes. Im not sure how MA degrees works but i would change all the time i spent studying and wasting time on my bachelor degree, into
finding art heroes sooner on my career.

I’m living proof that you can become a professional character artist through sheer hard work and determination AND get paid well to do it.
I didn’t begin my career through the traditional art school route.
I knuckled down, I bucked up and blasted my way through the door with hard work and unwavering determination.
Since 2010, I’ve been fortunate enough to:
3D Artist, Art Heroes Co-Founder and Likeness + Stylized Programs Creator
I’m Marlon Nunez
Travel to places like which allowed me to visit the places I’ve always wanted to while working a job I love
Worked with studios like Blur, Electronic Arts, GoodByeKansas, and Slightly Mad Studio
Designed characters for productions like Assassin's Creed Valhalla Trailer, Subnautica Cinematic, and Call of Duty Cinematic
A program that:
Kickstarts your career in just 16 weeks, followed up by a YEAR of support, feedback, and accountability from our world-class mentors & community
So I spent the last 6 years pouring my soul & energy into creating a 3rd option for you. The option that I wish I had when I was getting started.
Combines the flexibility of self-study, with the expert advice that only a skilled mentor can provide
I knew there had to be a better way.
Uses a world-class curriculum taught by people actually working in the industry (not some out-of-touch professor), at a fraction the cost of traditional art schools
Now my work fills me with joy, the journey of getting here didn’t.
Like you, the options I had at the time were to teach myself through hours of research or go to art school and just hope I would find employment on completion
After a decade of working in the industry, I realized both of these approaches were flawed:

  1. There was such a big gap between what most people thought they needed to know for this job…and what they actually used in their career.
  2. Most of my co-workers who attended art school are still paying off their loans
  3. Most recruiters take my portfolio into consideration first, and my completely unrelated to 3D character art degree second.

Hear from our Students
"I really wanted to find a community of people and I really wanted to have that professional feedback. So when I heard that Art Heroes works with industry professionals, I was totally on board with that.
Looking at the screenshots of the initial blockout of my character versus right after the group sessions, there’s a marked difference between where I started and where I ended up."
Levi Whittier, USA
Community support helped me transform my character!
"My 1:1 mentor sessions were amazing and worth the price of admission alone. The feedback he gave along the way definitely pushed my final model to be better than I could have accomplished on my own. He has a great eye for detail and what makes a great stylized character."
1:1 Mentorship helped me create a model better than I could on my own
"Nowadays there are many resources available to learn about 3D and digital art in general.
But I think it is very valuable to develop a project from start to finish with the guidance of real professionals. Receiving a tailor-made critique of your work is the best way to learn and progress."

"I’ve been a lead character artist for a medium-sized company for 5 years and wanted to increase my skill level to present myself for a job with an international company. This program helped me get to that level. From the beginning, I was learning things I hadn’t learned before. I’ve now crafted a portfolio and feel like I am ready to work at a big international company."

"Before this course I was fairly comfortable doing basic sculpts in ZBrush, but needed to brush up on my detail skills with hands, faces, hair, etc. I really enjoyed the feedback I received and was able to create my first character. I really felt like the people in this program took the time to know me. I wasn’t just a number. And I really liked that."
Tanja Langgner, UK
Helped me make my first character from start to finish!
"I really like how CAAA covers all of the stages of 3D character modeling. I recommend this course for inexperienced people as well as more skilled artists as it covers all the basics of modeling in Zbrush and is a great base and refresher course."
Jordi Solanas
For the inexperienced and the pro
Lessons are so easy to complete
"There is a ton of information and insight about the character process, and the way the course is structured makes it easy to digest. The lessons are never too long and always to the point. It helps a lot to focus on each step and refer back to a specific video if needed."
