“I can’t find words to express my gratitude for this great class! I recently purchased the Procreate app and though I wanted to create great artwork, I didn’t have the slightest clue! Your step-by-step instructions, your elaborate lectures, your tips and techniques, the awesome clarity of each lesson, and your cheerful disposition are all so awesome! For a total beginner like me, your class came upon me as a blessing. I always wondered how to bring out a natural gradient in seascapes and never knew it was so easy to create on Procreate! And I also had a great liking for sunlight and shadows. I was taken aback by your finished piece in the teaser for the class and immediately joined to find out how you did it! Each lesson is packed with so many tips and easy instructions and I’m so amazed at the wealth of knowledge that you possess Ms.Mikles! Though it would have taken years for you to figure out everything, you have so generously chosen to share your knowledge with us.. Can’t wait to try out all that you have taught and create a masterpiece like you someday! Thanks again.”
