I have a BFA in Game Design and wanted to continue working on my portfolio, but I need to obtain licenses for the software I was using in school, and I wanted to know the best way of going about and doing that. I was hoping to get licenses for 3Ds Max, Maya, Mud Box, ZBrush and Body Paint. I was checking out prices on JournyEd.com but you need to show proof of being a full time student. I was considering taking an online class from the Rydan school but I am not sure one class would help qualify me as a student and grant me academic license prices on the software I need. Please advise me on what I should do to get the software I want. Thank you.
