Great content and flow to show the process in order. Not like youtube videos.. I've learned so many great tips from Martin's classes! Highly recommend his Illustrator Masterclass as well.
This was a great class. So many great art concepts taught!

This, my friends, is one of the BEST classes on Skillshare I have seen, in all aspects: the real life project approach, the structure, the compositional concepts & the step by step making of it + the artwork is a whole new level!! LOVE it!! I work a lot in AI, and it's soooo interesting to see that I am using it in a totally different way :))) Still, the quality feel of the finished artwork is just amazing. What I loved the most and what I learnt [and definitely want to try out on my projects] is the detailed process of character concept....and from the second part, I just LOVE the effect textures have....I don't ever use them, but I think I am sold on them now :))) Thanks....and great work for an AMAZING class!! .....stay amazing, Em B-)
