Vincent9 October 2020

Loved drawing the eye, I feel like I've just gone from having barley any idea how to paint digitally to being able to produce my own work in just three short lessons.

Lucas6 October 2020

Ótima explicação do processo de pintura. Faltou um pouco de esclarecimento dos atalhos do photoshop, mas não é nada de mais.

Caleb29 September 2020

So far the eye demonstration was too fast. It seemed more like, copy me than I will tell you why these things are being done. That said, the trick in the beginning with lining up the eye and where the eyelid falls was very helpful. I had to take my hand off the undue button so I could pause and unpause constantly.

Tatjana25 September 2020

Da ich ein anderes Progamm benutze ist es nicht immer so leicht die selben Pinsel und Einstellungen zu finden. Ansonsten ist der Kurs sehr einfach zu verstehen und sehr hilfreich.

Brandon24 September 2020

Amazing intro to using Photoshop for digital art. I feel like the skill level this was built for is someone who has taken a few basic art classes already, as drawing fundamentals are definitely needed. The process outlined for beginning a digital painting is perfect and works every time for me. The Gamut Masking lecture was a completely new thing to me and totally changed the way I pick out color schemes for painting. Thank you so much for posting this course, really an incredible class and future resource.

Gareth25 February 2020

Learned some great basics already. Had no idea why my brushes not working as expected until section 10. Super useful info.

Milian22 February 2020

It's good, I just don't have any experience and I have to go over it a few times, or pause it very often to catch up with the drawing.

Michelle19 February 2020

The course was great, it was fun assignments and very good explanations, so that even a complete newcomer to digital painting as I am could understand, follow and improve. It was a very comprehensive course and a huge plus with two teachers with different styles and workflows. A lot of value for the money. Thank you, Austin and Jaysen.

Gabča18 February 2020

It is so far a good course with many informations which I need for starting digital drawing. Professional and friendly in same time! Love it.

Vince9 February 2020

very good and thorough, delivery a bit quick, sometimes hard to see where instructional video brush position is on my10" tablet, ie have seen some tutorials where mouse pointer has coloured area where mouse pointer is located, I would have liked a small brush pack to go straight to, rather than searching for suitable ones in the different downloaded ones, though all in all, excellent, useful content and material. Very professional course.

Jeffrey2 February 2020

The class has had exceptional communication and very clear direction. I like how at each step prompts are given for both those wanting to push themselves and those that are still needing training wheels.

Colin25 January 2020

I think that it was really interesting and that it taught me more than I would have expected. I bet that soon I'll be a professional even though I'm just a kid

Stephanie24 January 2020

So far, great course. I've just gotten past the introduction and I've already learned several things!!

Corey21 January 2020

The instructors are very professional and engaging! I can already tell this course will probably be the funnest course I’ve ever taken based on the first project alone. Never have I been this excited to learn a skill, can’t wait to see how I improve by the end!

Kenny20 January 2020

Great so far the tutorial is easy to follow and informative, my version doesn't quiet look the same however I am learning some more techniques so it's worth it.
