Nice quick run through of basic art fundamentals

very awesome teacher
Hardy is amazing. I came to Skillshare to follow artists like him, because was sorely missing insight like Hardy's in the world of digital art. Even a course as simple as this is executed in an interesting and solid way. 10/10, will follow Hardy to the ends of the earth.
