Amazing Class!

I love art.

What a treat to watch an illustrator master work. Thanks for the tips and tricks. Very professional.
Really good! Im not a beginner in Illustrator but I found this Class really helpful to learn tricks and remind me of how far I can go with details. Thank you!
This class was fun to do. I picked up some tricks and tips along the way including masking, gradients, sketching and more. Some of the pen tool sections of the classes were difficult to follow. I would suggest to the teacher to just have a class on shadows, light and setting up the illustration with the pen tool. Thanks for your help!
