Amazing! Just what I was looking for to up my skill level. Can't wait to watch more videos from Guy. I am just getting into digital painting from traditional painting and loved the fact that Guy shows how you can still get that traditional feel in a digital world!
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!
