“I enrolled this course for a major reason, level up! Kris has a different approach towards portraits that makes his work outstanding and unique. The fact he shares all his knowledge and methodology without leaving anything behind is what makes this course so valuable. So as a student, I felt very motivated to try to approach and see things different (more artistically I would say), and is all this motivation that drives us to become better artist at the end, right?! Thanks Kris, you are a legend”. http://www.mrnunez.com

“I had been impressed with Kris’ work for years and wished he would do a tutorial sometime. Well, I got one in abundance. Kris is completely open about his process, which is unusual in education by professionals, they usually leave one or two important things out on purpose. The amount of information you get is overwhelming in a good way. I cannot recommend this class enough." http://www.creativecharacter.com

“I was lucky enough to take part of Kris Costa’s class. Learned so so much and still learning from it. The content was like no other and the way he teaches is amazing. The structure of the class is also very well made and helps your motivation grow and grow each day. I can not recommend this course more! http://Instagram.com/ranmanolov

“It’s been a surprise in every single way. I am not only happy that I took the class, I am genuinely impressed. I find Kris to be a master of our days, but besides that he is able to explain his methods in a way that is fun and easy to grasp. Even if you’ve watched a thousand tutorials, even if you’ve been years in the industry, I think you will learn and get inspired. He found his own methodology to work on each process, and it feels refreshing and peculiar, there are so many lessons to be taken from this. He shares not only what he sells in the course, he gives you heart and soul to help you improve and to be there. http://www.artstation.com/palomita

“This guy is like the Holy grail of the CG portraiture , he knows everything you need to know to make realistic soulful portraits. And the most important thing, he shares everything , all the process, that's absolutely priceless. From likeness blocking to the latest pore detail you will be watching the best 3D portrait artist worldwide share all his knowledge. Keep inspiring us you old/grumpy master!" http://c1workshop.artstation.com/

“I have long been admiring Kris’s portrait work and am super excited to jump onto this class to see how he does his magic. But oh boy his attention to detail just HUMBLING to watch and on the other hand, ENCOURAGING for any serious artist. Because by the end of the class you will realize “if I pay as much attention as Kris, I will get there”. This is not another class showing off flamboyant skills like “I am awesome and all of you suck”; instead it perfectly deliver a message that says “we are all suffering together but we are going to make it”. I could not thank Kris enough for his knowledge and generosity. The water is great, just jump right in!". http://vimeo.com/151617946

Beginner’s Mind

No matter at what level you currently are, let me expose you to my personal approach to hyper-real digital portraits that’s different from just about everything else out there at the moment. No shortcuts, just focused, hard work, encompassing all steps necessary to emulating life in portraiture. After all, how much further can you expand your horizons and the way you perceive reality by simply repeating established patterns, without getting out of your comfort zone?

Besides the fact that Kris is one of the best masters in the industry, he is also a very open and cheerful person. I am amazed at how Kris successfully combines work in one of the best studios in the world and teaching such complex material. Each lecture was filled with masterful tricks and techniques. Kris fully shows his pipeline with all the little things and creates a new work on each class! I myself was surprised by the incredible and beautiful result that Kris’s unique pipeline gives. It was an invaluable experience, thank you, Kris!

I am very impressed by the classes, the course wasn't only what was promised, it was much more, apart from technical and artistic learning, advice and good vibes, I think only a few have the desire, patience and willingness to teach their techniques openly and Kris Costa is one of them.

a no holds bared course on digital portraiture. unlike most courses that offer a piece meal approach, Kris goes through the entire process in great detail. While the course is grounded in solid theory the real asset is practically going throw the entire process with Kris as he creates a hyper realistic portrait.

This is a great course for beginner artist to learn in-depth how to make character more appealing. Kris's approach is not that complicated and easy to follow when it comes to create a portraiture. In addition, Kris isn't applying unconventional brushes to his example. I feel that there's no other course that can compete with Fly On The Wall in terms of knowledge. I highly recommend for any artist to enroll his class. Moreover, Kris is a likeable teacher with an encouraging personality therefore no need to be shy to show your work in-class or during review session.

A complete class that goes through the process of sculpting a likeness, texturing, adding materials, rendering and post processing. It covers in depth artistic and technical approaches and even offers an ethical point of view of the work (something like this: every day explore, keep trying, work smarter - not harder, tell your story, enjoy the process and be nice to others). A beautiful class, one of my favorites.
