Fun and informative, Ryan takes you step-by-step through the process of making a great poster. If you only mimic what he does, you'll still end up with a nice illustration. But the simple skills and workflow he teaches can be expanded, and mixed and matched in dozens of ways, opening up loads of possibilities.
loved!
This video does a great job of breaking down the different tools and process used to create a poster or any other digital art. Love the vector info.
