This guy is great - it's like having questions anawered by a friend, rather than being "taught" to. It might be a little tedious if you're a PS proT but if you are just starting out this is an engaging and entertaining series of simple, narrated lessons. Brandon W., I'd like to buy you a beer!
Very in-depth class, Brandon. It included lots of specific techniques and tips. I really enjoyed viewing your painting process and hearing the story behind the piece featured in that video. Your piece showed a lot of character and story, even without you telling the underlying story. For me, the best lesson taught here was that your art doesn't have to be "realistic" in order to convey a story. Great job.

Very usefull! It gives a lot of technical input and many inspiration. Of course you don't have just to listen and watch videos but you have to try hard and to experiment by yourself...and that's what i want to do now! Thank you very much Brandon!
