WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY
Sarah Soltan Concept Artist
"I cannot recommend Concept Art Academy enough. I learned so much in a no-stress environment where I could share my fears and concerns and receive support. Hardy is extremely knowledgeable and knows his stuff, and having classmates to share the journey with was wonderful as well. Most of all, it is obvious Hardy truly cares about his students and that made all the difference for me; if you need someone in your corner, start here!"
Darko Silverstein Concept Artist
"This course has been an absolute game changer, like hitting the fast forward button on my progress. Hardy does such a great job of not only providing simple breakdowns of how to approach pretty much any project, but also cultivating a super supportive community. I couldn't possibly recommend it more highly for aspiring concept artists."
Jordan Taylor Concept Artist
"I was feeling sort of rudderless, like my skills had stagnated and I was unsure how to move forward with my art career. Then I found Concept Art Academy, and I'm really glad I did. After completing this course I can safely say my design IQ, rendering ability and visual storytelling abilities have elevated exponentially. I am confident in my workflow and am able to command those higher rates, and land those big ticket jobs. Hardy compresses years of industry knowledge into clear, easily digestible modules, and is right there with you every step of the way."
