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...
THis is one of the best classes I took in skillshare for painting in photoshop for beginers. The best of it that uses little resourses and expectacular results. Always keep things simples and for beginers is just great. Also it is great to receive the brushes used!!! HARDLY RECOMMENDED!
