    Over to you. I want to know about your dreams as a student.

    Join the discussion and let us know your dreams and your journey. Have your dreams changed since were a student? Or maybe since you were a kid?


    • About the 10k hrs to master something… nah
      With age I confirm that I can learn and master things faster when different learning methods are made available. I mastered Python basics in 2 weeks. I mastered C++ basics in 3 hrs.
      There is a Chinese idiom, 4 letters idiom, 事半功倍(shì bàn gōng bèi), more with less.

      And about lighting… you also need color. I have 1 e-book about the math of pixels (you will literally paint with numbers) and 1 radical color course (debunk the mystery of mastering color, from struggle to eternal love of color). You can find both at https://blendernpr.org/store/

    • Wow gleb rocky !!!! That’s your new style looking so nice you are younger then me that i am 16 Year old ! <3 🙂

    • Does weather is cloudy ! LOL

      • Oh yes, super cloudy with occasional spikes of sunlight. Was a nightmare to film it, but afterwards we thought it creates a cool effects as well. So was worth it.

    • David Frazier

      As always, great video. This was very very helpful and inspiring. Thanks Gleb! I just bought your new lighting video series and am super stoked to begin devouring it. Keep up the great work. Truly grateful for all you do.

    • John McClane

      It is all good – dreams, inspiration, motivation, etc, thanks! But what your main life goal? Be more and more popular, that’s all?

      ps If everyone wants to be popular, who will work hard at factories?:)

      • John, robots, robots will work at factories, that’s inevitable 🙂 Why waste our time for a nonsense labor, when we can spend it on something meaningful like science, culture and communication (and inventing robots)?

        Popularity is not a goal, you’re right. With that said, when we share knowledge online, we’d like to grow our audience. More happy people, more impact! 🙂
