Perfect cours!!!

The course bring you to another level. Thank you.

Ich habe die Technik gelernt, mit Masken zu arbeiten um Schatten auszuarbeiten.Generell gibt es halt viele bereinstimmungen zum Vorgngervideo "Licker".Deshalb war viel Neues fr mich nicht dabei.Liebe Gre

O contedo do curso muito bom. O instrutor domina bem o software e nos apresenta uma tcnica diferente e interessante de trabalho. Contudo o ritmo do curso bem acelerado, o que pode dificultar o entendimento de algumas partes.

I saw a lot of things that made me rethink the process I currently follow while still learning digital painting/drawing. I knew about some of the techniques, but this is such an eye opener that I want to slap myself for not paying more attention to using blending modes for texturing.

Modifico la calificacin porque Mike se tom la molestia de explicar su tcnica por medio de un video y su respuesta fue en muy pocos das. Sin duda es un maestro bastante recomendable.

I couldnt learn anything for the one video because it was too fast . And it was very important :) But then you made another and posted but invite only for us that purchased the course. It was mind blowing and well explained. Thank you. This is great course for everyone who wants to know more about vector graphics and rendering in Adobe Illustrator

I wish he would explain the tools and hotkeys he uses but still learn quite a bit just watching.

The course is moving too fast, I'm not being able to keep up

If you can slow down when you are explaining what your doing with the tools you use and don't rush;. this would be a great course.

Slow down

The lighting effects are amazing! Great course!
