The very talented Pete McNally is putting together some Saturday tuition classes. He will be covering 3ds Max, Mudbox and Photoshop.
Respond to him on his blog at http://petemcnally.wordpress.com/
Here is the blurb from his blog:
So, I’m looking at putting together a 3D art course on Saturday afternoons – this could be anything, so I want to hear from you about what you want to learn! I’ve been a 3D Generalist for about 12 years now, so I’ve been around the block a few times and worn a lot of hats! Initially I’m thinking 3DSMax, Mudbox, Photoshop – workflows, theory, hands-on practical work in a very informal setup, with tips and tricks that I’ve harvested over the years. I’m completely open to teaching anything 3D related at any level within my area of knowledge so drop me a line in the comments below and I’ll contact you and do my best to put together a course that suits everyone (in so far as that’s possible). I’m thinking 2 or 3 hours a week keeping class sizes down to between four and six participants – that should allow time for group learning and one to one tuition.
Hope to see you soon!
