Thank you for the class - I've found it really good.
I have tried your technique and despite I do not consider myself as a very good illustrator I think it came out OK.
I have learnt how to be more organised with my Illustrator files when working. I have always wasted so much time when I didn't pay attention to it. Now I know that being tidy is vital!
I have followed some of your tips, didn't really use blurs in PS because I didn't need so much speed in my artwork.
Textures and blending modes in PS really worked well and turned my a little flat Illustrator file into something more organic and rich.
Will be drawing a skiing girl soon !
Thank you again
