Chad has great talent and offers amazing customer service!

Chad Baldwin is insanely talented. This artist should be selling his course for much more than he is doing now. I am glad that I met this guy, not just through the course, but also through his exceptional customer support. It all started 3 months ago when I joined an art workshop in San Francisco. One of the guys there’s into this type of art, and he told me about Chad Baldwin and Creating 3D Cartoons Using Layers. I wasn’t interested at first because the name of the course is totally uncreative. I thought it was just one of those cheap online courses you don’t learn anything from, but it’s different. It’s amazing! I am now creating my own 3D cartoons for YouTube. I’m still a novice, so there is much I need to learn about this, but I am looking forward to becoming an expert through Chad’s course and support. He offers personalized support that is hard to find these days. It’s like he really takes the success of his followers seriously.

It's an amazing learning program!

Creating 3D Cartoons Using Layers taught me a lot! I’m glad I didn’t have to opt for more expensive learning programs because I already found this. It’s an amazing course, and I never imagined I’d learn so much from it! The original plan was just to try it, but I got more than what I bargained for. I feel that this has taught me all the basics, and now I just have to play around with it to learn some more. It’s an amazing program, and it’s definitely highly-recommended.

I enjoyed the course a lot!

I really enjoyed this course. It has been very helpful for me and for my friends who are also into animation. The thing with most animation courses is that they don’t focus on a certain technique. That never fails to leave me confused. With this, I was able to get everything organized and planned first, and I just followed whatever’s written in the guide, and it was good enough. There are some areas for improvement, and there are still some confusing parts, but for its price, I think it’s already quite a steal. I like here the course on the basics because I kinda skipped that part and jumped into tutorials for certain effects ONLY. I did not start from the beginning, which made it a bit difficult for me to go back and check certain points and techniques whenever I need to. With this, I was able to get back to basics the easy and enjoyable way. Also, everything I needed to get learning can be found here. The tools are here as well as all the PSD files needed. When it comes to support, it’s pretty good. He does reply when you email him, although it could be faster. I think the thing here is that he’s a lone ranger, not really a big company where he got people answering queries 24/7. Nonetheless, it’s a good package for the price, and something I’d definitely recommend beginners and early intermediate learners.

Everything started with this

I’m sooo happy with this course! I enjoyed it a lot and I was able to make my own mini 3D film for my mom and dad’s anniversary last month, and the guests really had fun watching it. Some of them have commissioned me to create short clips for certain occasions. It’s fantastic! Everything started with just this course, and now I think my dream of becoming a cartoonist is just within reach. If you want to learn how to make 3D cartoons, this is the best course to start with. You’ll find others along the way, but as a beginner, get this!


I'm glad I purchased this!

I use Photoshop for creating my cartoon illustrations. So I was a little hesitant on buying this program. I was curious as to how you go about Chad’s process, so I went and purchased anyway. The price is very reasonable so there wouldn’t have been much of a loss. To my surprise, I was very glad I purchased. Everything shown in the videos I can use in Photoshop. I was very glad to see how he used layers. I never really understood how they could benefit me. Great tips!

This technique is so easy.

I thank Chad for the tips on his layering process. It’s so easy and leaves such a clean look at the end. I plan to use this technique all the time now!
