I am a 25 years old Egyptian artist who loved playing games when I was a kid. When I got older I wanted to be an illustrator and concept artist for games as it was a part of my childhood.
The idea that I was going to take a mentorship 1 to 1 with my mentor and to speak with him directly for 90 minutes in every class amazed me. Especially that I took courses before with other artists and other schools and they give you a short time, not always trying to help you to improve your weaknesses and sometimes the mentor forgets about you if there are too many students in the class.

I learned from my mentors how to design a character, how to collect references, and how to think like a true artist.
To find professional artists in my industry field who can teach well, guide me, tell me my weaknesses, how to overcome them, and how to build my portfolio.
I’ve learned many things as below:
Designing a pyro witch illustration from scratch with background and foreground scenery.
It was a great experience, especially since I learned from great mentors and know what’s happening in the kitchen of the industry.
I have done plenty of figure drawings with my mentor and he helped me to simplify them.
I also learned how to paint values fast, painting in colors in a short time to understand deadlines and be able to adjust to workflow.
Those were among the major abilities I learned.
This mentorship was a great investment for me and I would recommend that you would take a mentorship with CGVerse especially since you are going to learn from great mentors with big names in the industry who are going to help you by all means that you would imagine.
