I just wanted to compare one of my illustration from October [left] with the one from this course [right]. As you can see there is a HUGE difference.

"This illustration course far exceeded my expectations"
There is SO MUCH info in this course including color theory, several cheat sheets, tips and tricks, and much more. Given all of the information presented, the course could have been a hot mess. But no, it was organized and flowed perfectly.
Genevieve instinctively knew just how much theory to include to help make your purpose clear, but not so much that you felt overwhelmed. I can honestly say this was one of the best courses I’ve ever purchased!

I joined this course because I have always wanted to know how to draw and every time I try it, I just end up more frustrated. [...] I’ve only gotten through the first segment and I’ve already been able to draw more than I ever have.
"I was definitely skeptical about spending this much money, but immediately knew I made the right decision."
