Great class, teaches you a very time efficant workflow for creating digital enviornment designs, i recomend watching the fundementals of photoshop class first. I also must warn against using some of the techniques in this video as a cruch as while they are incredibly useful and time efficant, it is always good to learn how to render various surfaces without the use of filters and phototextures.
awesome quality and well explained classes
