I am so pleased with my mentoring session with Anya! I was a fan of her artwork before I knew who she was, and to have her help me with my own artwork was a privilege. I've shown my current project to many peers, but Anya still managed to help me look at it in a completely new light. Thanks!

Anya really helped me in a lot of ways within the one hour I had, she gave great feedback on a scene that I had made and gave me a lot of really useful tips on how to improve it. I've already started incorporating these tips into my work to give it that extra step.

She explained all of her feedback very well and there wasn't anything that I didn't understand but she made sure to ask every now and then if I understood what she meant about certain things.

I also left that session with a clear plan ahead with where I wanted to go in the future with my own stylised scenes that best suited my current skill set, strengths and weaknesses.

Overall I came into the session with a strong interest in stylised artwork but felt that I was lacking direction as to how to improve myself and push myself further. The whole experience was very interesting, I learnt a lot and most importantly had a lot of fun too!

I don't want to spoil too much, but if your interested in stylised environments and you don't know where to start or maybe you've started and feel a bit lost like me then, Anya will definitely help and I cant wait to speak to her again in the future to continue developing my skills further.

Anya is a super nice and friendly person and gave me a very professional, hour-long lesson in stylisation basics (shape and material stylisation) as well as ZBrush stylized sculpting techniques with great tips and tricks. She also provided very valuable feedback on my previously produced work.

I took away a lot from this one hour already as all of her tips and explanations are very clear, understandable and to the point. The entire lesson was very nicely paced as well.

She gave me as much time as I needed to grasp the concepts she presented to me and was happy to answer all my questions in as much detail as possible while not being confusing.

This was also supported by coupling the theory with practical examples like live sculpting, demonstrating the discussed techniques on a model in 3DS Max or on a paint over, in case of feedback.

She took into account my previous experience as an artist who usually works in realistic art styles and gave me very helpful advice for getting into stylised art building upon my existing artistic and technical background.

It was a great lesson that I took away a lot from and I would have another one again happily any time!
