This is the kind of classes I wish Art school would teach you instead of Astronomy. It was broken down and simplified for those apprehensive of environment illustration and made extremely easy to follow. Kept in simple steps, it prevents you from glossing over watching the instructor make 'random abstract shapes and strokes' until you blink and see they have already created a masterfully-rendered background and you don't even know where it came from. I cannot wait to try some of these out on my own and see what fun backgrounds I can create.

Exceptional piece of art education material! A perfect combination of step-by-step methods whilst also being mouldable across a variety of applications. Teaching applicable principles, Philip Sue delivered a very comprehensive course - love the inclusion of the assignment documents for easy reference and understandable milestones, and SO THANKFUL he included the brush pack he used in this tutorial (should be required for every tutorial). A great reference for artists across all levels!

So happy to be able to use a process to work on all the ideas I have, this method is so great for a beginner to use time better! I'd love to learn how to work like this for underwater and forrest scenes too!

I liked a lot this course, the only thing I don't like so much was the video resolution, but I don't think that was a big problem at all because for me the real essence of this video is that gave me the inspiration to draw and draw and keep drawing in order to improve my technique and give my characters a truly great personality.

There are so much things to learn from this course. The teacher is explaining everything in an easy way so everybody can understand it. He also gives us very useful tips for exercising. The only thing I didn't like about this course was the video editing. Somethimes his camera may stand in front of the drawing and we are not able to see the whole drawing. Also the cutting wasn't on point at some points of the course. But overalit was amazing. Definetly deserves 5 stars rating.

What I liked the most about the course was the example of the girl and the little dragon. In this example, putting four examples of light was useful to me and gave me a lot of ideas. What I don't like is that it's too short. What I learned is, of course, how to paint, judge the direction of light effectively, and make better use of Procreate.

Very nice! This really helped me understand better how how shading works. Honestly I'm still not sure if I still have a good grasp on this as then Maria is a professional and knows this like it's nothing, but for someone who still has lots to learn I'm still unsure if I actually get this. But with that said, this class did give me a better grasp on shading and now I'm attempting to practice with it on my own characters, I just need to get over my frustration of not getting it and not being where I want to be as an artist because I know I can do this! Great course!

I like how most steps were narrated and explained. There were some parts though that were breezed through towards the end, which maybe could’ve been another module. But all in all a great beginner’s tutorial. I might rewatch it sometime so I can absorb more.

This course was exactly what I needed. I'm a digital artist of ten years but I never really refined my skills enough to illustrate beyond lines and flats - this is my first foray into more elaborate color/paint/shading, and I feel like I've nailed a technique enough to continue practicing it. I'll be going through this a few more times for practice!

It was a very useful course. I didn’t think before about how much archetypes can be used in character design. It's obvious, but I didn't think about it. :) He put a lot of things in a new light and showed the whole picture, the whole process of planning. Thanks!
