Very clear and concise. I really enjoy the watching the process and how her WIP's develop from sketch to final piece.

Love the grayscale approach and the way the teacher plays with blending modes! Lots to learn from this class, indeed.
Good overview of one particular way of working from grayscale to color. Good to know and will try it out

This is an excellent class on understanding the process of developing a character from grayscale to color.

Drawing is such a stress relief!

Being a character concept art class, I thought there would be a video on how the character was conceptualized/created, but all in all it's a great class about digital painting using ambient occlusion.
