Great class! This was a fun project and I learned some new ways about approaching colour palettes and composition that I'll keep with me. I do agree with some of the previous reviews however in terms of direction. Damien is a great artist and I feel that this class in particular may be tough for someone without a basic understanding of digital painting as he doesn't go into extensive detail about brushes or settings etc. I still recommend it though!
Graphic designer & Illustrator
Damien is an awesome illustrator and it's great to see him talk you through one of his pieces, but this is definitely more of a walkthrough than a class per se. While he does describe a lot of his decisions, he speeds through the work in progress and does not reveal any of his brush settings or get into much (greedily keeping his workspace in full screen setting so that you can't see his tool bar.) In short, I recommend watching the videos for inspiration, but he definitely go a lot farther in giving instruction on how to actually create a piece like this for themselves.
