Excellent tuition for a beginner, Chad makes this very clear to understand and follow. .
Chad Neuman is the best teacher ever. Everything makes so much sense with Ai now - I can't wait to check out his Photoshop classes! I wish I had discovered Doctor Neuman before I had wasted money on college courses, because I've learned more through his classes!
This series is a comprehensive overview for beginners of the functions of various tools and techniques in Illustrator. Each segment builds on the previous one so it is best to view them in order. I have much more confidence in my ability to use Illustrator to accomplish my ideas after viewing the series, and I know I will refer back to it again. I recommend this class for anyone who wants to learn how to get the best results from Illustrator.
