Course Conclusion

Thank You Video


Mubashir14 September 2020

Yes this course is best and i learnt many things from this. This is very helpful for the beginners as well as intermediate. Thank you for this course.

Alexander30 August 2020

It is a very good course. Condensed all the basics into easy to digest chunks. I would've given it a higher rating, had I not known everything that was said in it. Its only for beginners and I thought based on the description, that it would start from basic to more advanced techniques. Still, this will get you a running start if you're just starting with art.

Eris27 August 2020

Yes, it seems good so far, well organised and easy to follow. I'm excited to see where this is going and the results at the end.

Mark23 August 2020

The fundamentals are excellent, even the hours long realtime follow along of sketching are useful. There's nearly a 10 hour demonstration on turning your art digital, which I wasn't expecting in a drawing class. Thinking maybe that could have or should have been a course on it's own.

Jutta20 August 2020

Yes, I figured I hold the pencil wrong and it worked better just getting closer to the tip for drawing lines.

Ld10 August 2020

The course itself is not so bad. The points: I was actually very confused in some videos like Prime Country and Marilyn Monroe because the teacher (Kevin) states at the beginning of the video what pencils he will be using. But then, when he's drawing, he doesn't state what type of pencil he is using to actually draw (like 2B or 7B.) It's all very confusing. In some videos, we are required to have things that we actually don't have. Like for example, a smudge stick or apps. But this course doesn't tell you what to do without those materials. Are we just gonna skip and waste 10 lessons of something we don't have? Another point is that when Kevin is drawing, we can barely see it because it's so light. Obviously artists draw lightly first but it should be in good lighting so we all can see. Also, when we are drawing something or someone, we should have a picture for reference. There's none at all. Until half of the course, I can only see Kevin drawing the features of Monroe. Back to the resources that we don't have; In Section 17: Turning Your Art Digital: Ink and Color Demonstration; it's roughly about 21 courses. It requires Photoshop and other tools to colour in. One, Photoshop makes you pay, I've already paid a course close to 30 dollars and I should get photoshop? Photoshop offers a 7-day free trial which is good but not everyone can finish 21 courses of editing in 7 days. Do me a favour, don't waste your time with the courses. Overall, the course is ok. But it could've been better.

Sarah8 August 2020

The traditional drawing part was really good and covered the basics in an excellent way, however, the last section of Photoshop was a bit too much and not clear enough (jumped into inking a pretty large drawing

Hollyanne7 August 2020

The editing could be better. It could have made him seem less nervous if they cut out the coughs and “um”s.

Jan1 August 2020

The presentation is not professional, Kevin you flounder a lot with your words and your materials giving the impression of an amateurish home video. Sorry to be very direct but your sniffing and uming is very distracting. Also there should be an alternative to Facebook for posting work for people who are not on social media. Not a great start, hope the course improves.

Mark27 February 2020

I have zero experience in drawing and this course looks to be both fun and informative. This is my first experience with Kevin but I have taken courses that Phil has put together and he appears to be a master instructor.

Stan27 February 2020

I have wanted to improve my Illustrator skills and I know this drawing course will improve my graphics.

Zuri25 February 2020

I have really improved my drawing and sketching with this course. It is excellent for beginners at explaining how the proxy of creating works. As for people who want to improve at designing it does help in teaching exercises and advanced methods to get even better. Thank you so much.

Elijah25 February 2020

I normally dont rate until the end of courses but this one is new and has less reviews so I'll rate this one early. I'm a huge believer in fundamentals and so far this one has started out strong. Anyone can go just practice drawing but if you dont know the fundamentals of what to practice you can just do the same mistakes over and over and not really improve, which is what I've done every time I try to get into drawing. Basic things like practicing lines and circles sound really lame until you realize someone like me, whos trying to use a wacom and has no tablet to screen coordination, can improve a ton just by doing these basic things I'd never think of. I'm looking forward to working through the rest of the course.

Denise12 February 2020

Really enjoying this course, easy to follow learning platform. Great support from knowledgeable teachers. Highly recommend.

Brayden5 February 2020

Hey it’s really good don’t get me wrong, but there is a document that is used on desktop. It isn’t necessary, but it would be nice if I could use it while watching the video
