Learn Squared
Preparing for next course rollout for Learn Squared requires a lot of RnD and testing to make sure we can teach the best techniques and experiences. 
This image is snippet of what the course could be about. Built and rendered in under 10 minutes. Some powerful tools there we will be sharing soon thru classes :)

Making this was riddled with mistakes, failures and countless hours of learning C4D workflows. Getting to learn from the best as apprentice of almighty Ash Thorp. Check out our classes at:

I'm self taught artist. Didn't have YouTube, Gumroad, there was barely anything on internet outside of Sijun and I couldn't afford Gnomon DVDs, nor any other platform, pretty much never had opportunity to learn proper classes to help my craft because once those became available and within reach I was already knees deep in entertainment industry.

Now with Ash Thorp as my mentor, I can finally feel like proper student taking his UI class. And I feel like deja vu with failures, stupid mistakes, new software learning curve - things that are hard to do, outside of comfort zone and brain taxing - recipe to quit right?

Wrong. A decade of self learning and failing hard taught me that failure is main ingredient of success. I didn't read books about it, all of success books these days point out this simple fact. I had to go through emotional roller-coaster to understand it.

Back then noone would get to see my mistakes because I would only post work that I'm proud of. Today, learning in field that is totally out of my comfort zone, I feel comfortable to show all of my mistakes. Prove wrong all those who might tell you 'quit it, you suck!' All of us make crappy art, but then we practice, learn and improve over time.

This is what we teach at Learn Squared. Never quit. Keep creating. Don't be afraid to fail. We all go thru same struggles, the only difference is the mileage..

Check out this Lesson 3 homework, if you slow it down, you will see tons of error messages - illustrator telling me I'm stupid 

ArtCafe is simply me talking about industry and art in general with cool gusts. I managed to get some time with my good friend Dan Luvisi to talk about film from his and my perspective, how things get done when you try to pitch a film and how they look when you work in art department.

Thanks for watching!

I love love love it! And your gallery has a mix of so many things that I enjoy from gritty sci-fi to magnificent fantastical scenes. Thank you so much for sharing them with on here on Deviantart!
