I learned a lot about shading and the different types of shadows. I would recommend this class for anyone looking to get into drawing basics. Fantastic class - the teacher makes it easy to understand how to shade effectively. Great course , liked the presentation style , could not ask for more ! i know how to shade with painting on canvas however digital seemed like a daunting task to figure out but you have given me awesome first steps to get started!
