  • Great teacher and a perfect intro to Maya

    Nalini is an excellent teacher and this course is a really enjoyable introduction to Maya. It is a steal at $20. I have learned more in this course than I ever imagined for the cost and Nalini’s teaching style allows you to follow along easily with his well-paced and very calm, cool teaching style. He covers so much. All the UI basics + clothing, rigging, animation, and even some texturing in Substance Painter…and he explains it all very clearly.

    I went from being intimidated by the Maya UI to feeling inspired and more confident to jump in. I am definitely going to purchase more of his courses. The community is so lucky to have a teacher like him taking his time to share his knowledge and skills with us. A+++
