Italian 3D artist and training expert Ciro Sannino is a rock star of CG education. He’s written hundreds of tutorials for his blog and website, as well as a book on V-Ray rendering. His workshops have become legendary, and he’s even organized luxurious training sessions on Mediterranean cruises.
A big part of his success is his unique 5-Step Render Workflow, which breaks CG learning into easily digestible chunks while keeping an eye on the bigger picture. Complex ideas are explained in a simple manner, and students don’t find themselves overwhelmed by new information or technical jargon.
