This site was launched in February 2009 by Aaron F. Ross. Our mission is to provide high quality learning resources for computer artists. We strive to make it as easy as possible for computer artists to acquire new skills, helping them gain and maintain the competitive edge in a changing marketplace.
The latest research in education and cognitive science guides our development of learning materials. This is what makes us unique: we have a deep understanding of pedagogy, the theories and methods of teaching. Nearly all other training material you'll find out there focuses on the tools and techniques of CG, with little or no attention paid to how people actually learn. Our approach helps artists truly comprehend principles and practices, rather than simply remember which button to press.
Our greatest satisfaction comes from enabling artists to create new and amazing work. We help make the tools of computer graphics available to a wider user base. Everyone from high school kids to visual effects supervisors can benefit from our learning resources. As the incredible image-making powers of CG become available to more people, our culture can only be enriched by a greater variety of creative visions.
