    What an excellent course!

    I am still very to the whole maya 3d rendering process. But this course really help me get my maya & v-ray knowledge up to speed. I am now finally able to create some of my own renderings and I am excited to combine this with my photoshop knowledge in the future. Thank you for this great course, hope to see some more soon.
