I’m really grateful that I signed up for CG Cookie. I was an absolute beginner with no previous experience with Blender when I discovered this awesome website and now I have learned so much from these expert teachers. From the Fundamentals of Blender to the advanced course, CG Cookie is accessible for anyone with any level of 3D experience.

Before using CG Cookie I was struggling to find a productive learning flow. With their structured course content, my skill level has increased 10-fold. I signed up for the yearly subscription and I still don’t think I will get through all the videos. There is so much content to learn from. A+ service and I will be continuing my training with them along my 3D career.

I've been a member of CG Cookie for about 5 years. I've always been so impressed with the quality and breadth of the courses available, it's very easy to find something new to learn and have fun with. Another aspect that I love is the sense of community, it's great to chat with other artists on the forums and see what people are up to in the Gallery.
