Love this course so much :)Hope to see more like this.

So Far so Good, Hoping I can use this within the game engine or make this also within a game, but over all I am loving the course and will use it for help with my workflow into making a game

This course I so AWESOME! I have learned so many new things!! and also I've drank so many double expresso's that I can't even imagine my self drinking any other coffee ty Gleb ;)

The teachers have a lot of experience. They make the tutorials very entertaining. I highly recommend the course, I am learning new things. They answer doubts quickly. I am very happy with the course.

This course is awesome, I haven't finish it yet, But I feel that the instructor should go more slowly in the lessons since I feel that I'm not learning anything at all because he is going so fast that I'm just trying to keep up and if I blink I have to go back again and again to because of how fast he is going, But if you're a person that can keep up with the fast peace and learn at the same time, This course is for you.

I'm only a few chapters into the course because I've been having too much fun playing with different planet textures and node settings. The instructors do a great job of not just saying what to do, but why they're doing it and how to personalize it. As I progress further, I will make a more informative review.

They spent an enormous amount of hours to bring to Udemy this well-made course on producing a galaxy from scratch using free softwares like Blender, Krita, and Gimp. I am so thrilled to see two highly-qualified educators in the Blender 3D community. Can't you tell how happy I am based on this perfect 5-star rating?

One of the best courses on Udemy

Everything is clear and understandable

So far, this course is amazing and it's really helping me take my online learning to another level. Keep making tutorials like these and I'll keep throwing my money at you!!

Excellent content, but need more explanations, also it will be a good idea to show us the keyboard shortcuts on screen.

I love their videos on youtube, and have been looking for the opportunity to learn this class. Now I am able to.
