Dreams come true

Before I came to Vanas, working as a concept artist seemed like a faraway dream that I'd chase but eventually have to settle for something less, however everyone I've talked to has been so helpful and all seem very passionate about what they do, now rather than looking like something I'd wish for, it looks like something I can actually work towards

Passionate faculty

Adrian is a very relatable person, every time I ran into a problem with photoshop or zbrush, he would find a way of reassuring me and showing me that it wasn't as difficult as it seems. Adrian was always extremely passionate about the work we were doing and there was never a point where I lost interest during a Q&A session

Encouraging progress

My teacher is very friendly, very encouraging, and a joy to listen to. Always finds good things to comment on and gives advice for how to improve work while still sounding courteous. Very approachable and balances humor and information in the lessons to keep them fun and entertaining. He's also very enthusiastic and punctual

Kindred Spirits

I feel very welcome here and the lessons are incredibly helpful. I've learned a lot in just 2 weeks. I especially like having the video lecture at the beginning of the week so I can start work on my assignment before the live session on Thursday. My teacher is fantastic, too

Learning from other students

What I really like about Vanas is the fact that I can go to the community page and see other students assignments. I think its a great way for students to feel proud and be encouraged to submit the best work they can do so that others can view it

Teacher's strengths

My teacher strengths are Anatomy knowledge, make good critiques, a lot of experience


Online campus is great and accessible

Well planned curriculum

Good variety in the lessons and the people presenting them (both the videos and the live session), keeping things approachable, helpful, and streamlined. I imagine it would be difficult to coordinate a program like this and Vanas does an excellent job

Test yourself and see if you like it

I really like that you offer one-month classes. You gave me a chance to try and see if it was for me. And it has been great. I think I can do this: Study online and animate. Two different challenges. You help me discover I can

Well planned curricula

The curriculum is well thought out and shows consistent usage of previous fundamentals learnt from past lessons

Works with my busy schedule

VANAS is really good at providing a source of education for those who already lead busy lives

The right duration

It's clever doing the intro class that short. Just long enough to get you hooked but not too long to make you bored of school. Tricky tricky

Online Campus ease of use

The online campus service to submit work is really easy to use and there is a lot of ways to access information if needed

Teachers are attentive

Teachers are very attentive to their students, patients , and help with any technical problem. Thank you

Exciting Curriculum

Worth it

Future in the industry

I'm loving the course and am excited for my future in the industry thanks to VANAS

Foundations are key to great artists

Taking the artist down the less traveled road of getting a good foundation. Most artists just want to jump into creating but have not done proper study first. Vanas has forced me to do that, and I can see an immediate difference in my art already

Challenging Assignments

VANAS gives you assignments that are very open ended which allows students to challenge themselves

Teachers Powers

My teacher's power is in his attitude, his ability to explain and his passion for what he is doing. His understanding and his positive character , his imagination and his own style and many more :)
