I got more out of this than I did for a full-semester class at university and didn't have to take out a loan to do it. The videos are amazing and in-depth, and the structure of the class is perfectly paced to take you through the process of painting a portrait without overwhelming you.

I love the site and can't begin to tell you what a difference it's made for me (I went from 'I have an art degree' being the funniest joke I could tell to actually making work that looks good)

I feel far more comfortable with digital painting now. I don't struggle with smooth blending and I've learnt lots of easy tips and tricks that make it easy to fix mistakes or to really push the drawing to the next level. Basically, I've learnt how to use technology efficiently to create beautiful paintings.
