I work in LA and have some amazing Gnomon bro stories. Avoid it just watch youtube
>>
>>674936
they were synonymous with "quality" some time ago
nowadays it's pajeet education centre tier with occasional specks of gold in piles of shit

im not sure if theyve ever been good. i downloaded a face modeling tutorial from them once, and the instructor unironically said that the best way to model a face was from a subdivided cube

They're fucking expensive but not sure if they are that worth it.

why not just use the whole cylinder for the mouth and eyes method? it seems like that is better topology, compared to box modelling
>>
>>674936
Depends what you study and specialise in,

if it's character modelling then stay the fuck away

mid 00s tutorial are pure kino.
most of the modern stuff is total shit. zbrush tutorial by some chick is probably the most useless tutorial i've seen in my life. and they charge money for that, imagine.

I still remember one from the early 00's where this comicbook line artist spent a good portion of the tutorial talking shit about colorists.
>>
>>674972
what was the date on that video? Gnomon has been around for a long time.
>>
>>675238
early to mid 2000s. the instructor was using XP, so fairly old
>>
Let's hear some Alex Alvarez stories.
>>
I remember hearing Alvarez smoke during a tutorial. They have some talented people but they are overrated.

Once you seen how organized and to the point Peter Stammbach is, it's hard to respect other people in the tutorial business. Though Ryan Kingslien is very good.
>>
Good if you go for the tutorials by the Titans like Alex, Feng or the few Michael's

Still better than just about all the tutorial providers out there. A shame you guys will never get to see a lot of the good old tutorials long removed from even cgp.

I still remeber those days, like the one where the instructor accidentally had an x force keygen genrator open on his desktop, conceptart.org was still one of the biggest things back then too, great times.
