    Whatever superlative I use here would be insufficient to describe the pure unadulterated awesome that Maddie brings to the Z-Brush learning experience. Glad I got to participate.

    Hi I'd like to attend the next one with free spaces.. I've been working in marketing for the last 6 years and really want to get back in to 3D, did a masters in 05 but now I'm so rusty I squeak when I walk. I've Just started to pick up Maya, to better my chances in the 3d world, but am still reasonably competent in XSI and Lightwave which no one seems to use anymore

    A little inspiration to oil my squeak would be great, I'd forgotten how initially steep the learning curve on new software was when teaching yourself, so it would be nice to meet some local poly pals :o)

    Darn, this is full already. Is there a waiting list I could go on? Just in case someone somehow happens to sprain both their wrists in an inexplicably mysterious accident and can't make the class . . .
