- Great value for the price Review by Matis
All in all, a great value for the price (Posted on 09/04/2013)
- Good overview from concept to final picture Review by Ello
Only the quality of the eBook appears weak (to dark) on my iPad, so that is why I cannot give it 5 stars. (Posted on 07/11/2012)
- Clearly explained Review by Paul
- Simple and straightforward, but explaining brushes would have helped Review by Colin
On a critical note I wish the e-book further explained the brushes they were using and how they functioned within the artwork. So many of these tutorials jump right into painting and barely cover the brush they're using and WHY they're using it at all. Not to mention including the brushes for download would also be helpful to follow along.
Other than that, a great read and guide. (Posted on 04/10/2012)
