Learnt how to use brushes and control them on Wacom. Highlight was seeing how much detail and life-like features the brushes can give.

Jimmy is super helpful and really made sure to give one-on-one help and advice if you needed. I liked that it was a small class-size so that it was possible to ask questions, chat, and get feedback and guidance. It was so cool to see his process and really fun to try out a Wacom tablet (though i still prefer iPad). It really gave me the push to get back into digital illustration and Jimmy helped me smooth out my skills. And, it was so fun!

Good and informative class on digital illustration. Need to know your way around photoshop before you do the class. Great to be able to test Wacom and digital pens. Inspirational class.
