easy to follow. even for a beginner like me
Super cours pour apprendre à transformer efficacement des formes basiques sur illustrator.
As a logo designer but beginner digital artist, I must say this is a great watch. Ryan exposes you to his process and in essence to the power of shapes; everything is made of basic shapes, therefore, you can make everything. This course is definitely an asset for brand designers as towards the end, he shows you how to expand your avatar to make others! (essential skill for building visual identities). Great watch, would recommend!
