An excellent class! The incredible Mr Wolek makes it look easy. His workflow is pretty direct and his free-wheeling approach to layers has freed my mind. This is the first class re: Ps that hasn't left me scratching my head with "how was that done—again?" Thank you Mr Wolek for teaching me how to keep real charm in a digital illustration. Very exciting!
A great class to show you the basic steps for Painting Digitally, It brings up topics like brushes, layer settings and color. It also includes a Photoshop brush set! Although It can be alittle slow sometimes...
