That's why Character Mentorship Program was born.
Over the past years, we've worked with dozen of studios and hundreds of artists to understand what exactly are the skills that you need on the job.
Fast-track your way to being a job-ready Character Artist in 7 months
You might feel frustrated by all the things you need to learn.
You might be overwhelmed with random advice and information.
Even if you know it all, you might feel you're lacking structure - are you going to be able to keep up with the studio pace?
You might think you're not good enough and it's too complicated.
Starting out as a Character artist can seem impossible.
The requirements are high.
The industry is moving very fast and no one can tell you what to start with.
With the Character Mentorship program, we are teaching you only what's needed for your portfolio and for your success as a character artist, leaving all the fluff aside.

Our goal is to help you build a stellar portfolio and the career that you deserve.

Over the course of 7 months, you will build 3 characters working alongside your mentors and the community of other artists.

By the end of the Program, you will have all the tools, experience, and knowledge you need to start or advance to the next level as a character artist
You don't need to spend hundreds of thousands on an art school.

If you have the dedication, you need just a few months to give your career a new twist.

The fact that the course was made in steps was very helpful but the most important thing that helped to improve her look was the feedback via community and the Mentorship sessions. I got to ask for a lot for help from the Program Instructors to see what was wrong, especially with her face or the proportions of her body.

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.

If I could finish with a nice result I think that everyone can. And that's because of the course, which explains perfectly every passage so that fits every kind of level.
The feedbacks from the instructors motivated me to do better and better.

I drastically increased my skills in the time and the structure was fantastic for someone who is working long hours already.
The sculpting sides of things was a 10/10
