  6. Great course if you're decided to specialise in flat or 2d vector design. Pretty straightforward course too. No fluff up or filler lessons. Pretty great for beginners for AI vector illustration ~ Hannah G
  7. This class was really helpful for me. I've tried watching tutorials on Youtube but I'm still an Illustrator beginner and it's easy for me to get lost when they skip over steps or don't explain what to click on. I didn't have that problem in this class! And I wasn't sure that creating three versions of the same character would be as useful as doing different characters, but it helped me practice the process and feel more comfortable with it, so it was actually really beneficial ~ K Anderson
