yes, very much so...I am transitioning from traditional watercolor to add digital to my tools and have been struggling to feel comfortable

Awesome intro to digital art. Helped me make the transition from traditional to digital. Have a lot more confidence operating procreate, building layers and utilizing effects now. Well worth the time and money.

The main issue I take with this course is that it ONLY uses Procreate, which wouldn't be a problem IF it wasn't ONLY available on IOS devices. I couldn't use this course to learn to make a brush in my program and I can't use the same techniques. It's not a bad course. I'm learning a bit but not being able to use and learn by doing is making it feel frustrating instead of exciting. I think it should say it's mainly a course for Procreate.

Ive been keen to practice my art skills. This course gave me clear course to follow, and a real sense of progress that I found motivational. I whizzed all the way through it and am very happy with the advancements Ive made. Ive ordered other courses by the same lecturer. I can see that there will be some overlap with this course, but I dont mind too much as they arent exactly the same pieces of art and repetition is really how you learn to hone skills.

Im a software developer and i love oil painting but when i saw your videos on youtube, I thought wooow! that its really fantastic and I want to start drawing like this!!! the course its really fantastic, I tried made some drawings and after that put in a canvas and have fun with oil paint. thanks for all those tips! i like your philosophy too.

I dont like how this instructor only uses an Apple program. Plus there are a couple of times that I needed to download a file from him and I was NOT able to, because it was in tht apple program, so I wasnt able to do that couple of projects. There are a couple of times that I ended up just watching him work.

Le lezioni sono chiare e viene spiegato bene un possibile workflow per realizzare un opera dallinizio alla fine. Vengono analizzate diverse tecniche e stili.

I've never taken art classes before. I learn so much from these courses, however, that people who are much better, more experienced, and educated artists ask me how I do certain effects or achieve results from what I was taught here!

The course is amazing with various styles of digital painting and also with great explanation, I have really enjoyed watching and learning.Thank you.

Fantastic learning experience for a beginner into digital painting. I was able to follow along and achieve pretty good results. Well worth it.

Very long course but an amazing course of digital painting. It was above my expectations, I learned a lot. This course showed several painting styles and how to paint. Good teacher. You'll learn the fundamentals basics of how to paint also how to create several things from the scratch. The course was very helpfull for me.

Excelente curso, o professor elucidou vrias tcnicas, o curso muito detalhado e bem explicado, a nica ressalva a legenda em portugus que n�o traduz as palavras corretamente e dificulta um pouco o entendimento.
