Lots of work but lots of fun:)

This is my first finished class on Skillshare, I decided on this one purely because of the instructors background. The class is simple and Sarah does a great job breaking down information in fun interactive ways, which is good for Visual learners. I enjoyed the fact that the assignments are spread out. Im sure theres tons more you could learn about illustration and storytelling but as a crash course I would have to say I'm very happy with what I learned and what I created.
I appreciate Sarah giving a little background about how she came to drawing webcomics and the tips at the end (people may steal your work). The class instructions were clear and simple to follow. If you have no experience with Photoshop, you may get a little lost.
