What People Say

What students said about 3D Design Academy

Yeongsoo Choi

Yeongsoo Choi – Creative Digital Sculptor (GM)

“Soochan is one of the best academic mentors regarding Alias modeling I met. He knows how to teach by looking at it from the student's perspective and will guide you with the reasons why it should be that way.”

Wendy Kim – Creative Digital Sculptor (GM)

"Courses from the 3D Design Academy will give you confidence in Alias. The class provides it all, starting from the basics of Alias to even advanced surfacing. Whether it is basic or advanced modeling, the lessons are planned out thoroughly and explained easily for students to perfectly understand why things are being done."
Samel Jeong

Samel Jeong – Creative Digital Sculptor (GM)

"Soochan’s Alias class was a classic! The class helped me improve the fundamental knowledge of Alias. Not only did he explain the tools, he also taught me how to approach the model. Additionally, it was very easy to understand because he explained in a very concise manner without unnecessary information. I recommend this class to anyone who wants to improve their Alias skill set!"

"Soochan is the best instructor for learning Alias. Before I took Soochan’s class, I didn't know about Alias besides just basic knowledge, moving the camera or making a curve. After college, when I decided to learn Alias, I panicked because Alias was too hard to learn by myself. So, I tried to find some tutorials, but none of it was useful. Meanwhile, one of my friends, who is working at GM, recommended Soochan Lee to learn Alias and I took his class. I have been taking his class for around 5 months and I can make a product on my own. And the most important thing is I got a job offer from GM. I guarantee no one can be better than Soochan Lee."
Unseop Chung

Unseop Chung – Creative Digital Sculptor (GM)

"Soochan is the best instructor I ever had. Soochan is knowledgeable, professional, understanding, and detail oriented. Soochan’s class contents are well structured, and he demonstrates the best practice in building a clean and solid Alias model. Soochan is the best instructor if you are willing to develop Alias skillsets in both academic/career paths."
Chris Lee

Chris Lee – Student (College for Creative Studies)

"I enjoy taking classes with Soochan. I have been impressed with the excellent service. Soochan works hard to make sure I understand the topic. Some of the topics, you can never get from the school.  Highly recommend Soochan to anyone who wants to learn Alias."

"If you want to become a 3D modeler, take this class. You will never regret it. It contains all the processes of Class-A modeling and the A to Z of Alias. If you go through the tutorial chapter by chapter, from understanding the tools, modeling skills, approaching the problem and the process of solving the problem, Alias will no longer be a difficult tool for you."
