This is what our students tell about their experience:

Jon Arellano

Student, Senior 3D Artist

Before studying at the GDP Academy, I was designing websites and interfaces. As for me, it was very boring. And then I came across the ads of 3D Artists course and realized that it is time to leave my current job and complete my studies as a Character Artist.

Aarav Patel

Concept Artist Сourse Student

I chose GDP Academy because I liked the style of the teachers' artworks. During the course, I devoted all the time to my studies, sculpted for 8+ hours a day. Now, I create a mobile project with my colleague. In the evenings, I make AAA models for my portfolio. Soon I am going to polish my workflow and create my own tutorials, sell time lapses and ready-made animations.

Stephen Anderson

Hard Surface Artist Сourse Student

I chose the gamedev because I'm an avid gamer myself. I opted for 3D because I was good at drawing in my time, plus I have a few friends who work as 3D artists and they love it. Haven't regretted it at all. Mentors invested in me a lot. I told them that for me, it is a matter of life and death! I liked everything we did. Without mentors, I wouldn't get into the industry so quickly.

Vikram Mehta

Game Developer Сourse Student

I remember GDP academy as the best educational institution that my life brought me to. This is my third long term education. A distinctive feature of the Gamedev Punks is that you feel help and support everywhere, even if you have non-standard requests. GDP changed my life, divided it into Before and After, gave me the opportunity to do what I really like and incredibly exciting. GDP gave me not only knowledge and skills, he gave me useful contacts and new friends!

Ian Llanas

VFX Artist Сourse Student

I started working immediately after completing the course, as I wanted. To start a career, you need a portfolio. I did mine at Gamedev punks.

Karan Sharma

Game Designer Сourse Student

GDP academy definitely influenced me. Well, how without it? It's a whole period of life. Although not very long, but in terms of the number of events it is so rich that it seems that this is just a whole big chapter of life. The period in which I met wonderful people, took part in various projects, and in general everything was just beginning. It will remain in my memory and will continue to influence me. Gamedev Punks academy is a great place to start. The level of the teachers will allow you to get all the necessary skills to enter the industry.

Prakash Joshi

3D Artist Student Сourse Student

Gamedev Punks academy became the springboard that helped me change my specialty - move from the world of static graphics to the magical world of moving pictures, spaceships, caramel dragons and ponies made of cubes. Well, you understand :) If there is a drive and a desire to learn, then GDP is a great opportunity to get the necessary knowledge from people from the industry.

Ian Llanas

Concept Artist Сourse Student

You need to be prepared for the fact that if you want to become a cool and sought-after specialist, then you need to put all your strength into what you are doing. GDP academy will 100% help you with this, everything is there: excellent teachers who know their business, a huge number of disciplines and introduction to the profession, and the opportunity to show you in external projects.
