Question if we offered similar courses here with instructors at the same ish level, at a lower price would you take them?

If there are at the level that i`m looking for yes.

As you see that i have registered in 2005, i have followed the courses here. But due to the level of the tutorials i have found that i feel more attracted to buy digital tutors or gnomon online, and now with masters of the Workshop at CGS.

the only reason that i`m more interested in these sites now is that they also do dynamics, rigging, cloth, fluid and so much more...

SM seems to stick with modelling and texturing, and i think a couple simple rigging. And i have past this level for maya. Well if you for example would include more advanced features, i would love to spend my points here.

Also what would be interesting is indeed create a special class with a limited amount of members so the master can help the individuals much better. Rather then just a video tutorial.

Btw i still have 50 points left from 3 years ago so yes i want to spend them. But i haven`t found an interesting tutorial to spend them on.

Thanks for your reply

I didn`t intended to spam for cgs, as it was Zbrush related.

And if you guys do have these things here at lower prices, hell yes i would love to join.

Also i dont remember if you guys also use paypal, but having this function would attract me even more, as i use this for everything. You guys would even attract more as paypal will accept normal bank cards in europe.

We do use paypal

Thanks for your input, we are looking to create some workshops and DVD's for advanced users in the near future.

As you see we are aimed mainly at newbies at the moment.

Congrats on the course Aiko

Have a killer time!

@David: I believe that I would also like to see some more in depth tutorials on this site. The ones you have are great, but not really my thing.. I like realistic stuff. Like you would expect to see in production (and I know allot of other people do too) But All the tutorials on this site seem to be more Cartoon based.

No date yet, however in about a week from now I'll be looking for some beta testers. I'll shoot you a private message on the site when we're ready. If you'd like to help out with testing the new site your input would be appreciated.

I think a lot of members here would like to contribute to that!

I have some testing experience, so it'll be OK for me.
