Really really good teaching. Thanks for all Patrick.
Patrick is a great teacher!
I always searched the internet for HDRIs to light my scenes. I had no idea I could make my own with my phone. Thanks for the lesson!

I've been creating photorealistic abstract renders in Cinema4d and Photoshop for awhile now and was overwhelmed at the support and buzz surrounding my Instagram. My work has been featured by Photoshop, The Motion Designers Community, TheGraphicsPr0ject and more.

So as a thank you, I've decided to share some of my knowledge. I will be releasing a new class every month so hit the follow button and jump aboard!
