“This is the most helpful class I’ve ever taken on Skillshare! I have been using Procreate for a couple of months, but without knowing the shortcuts, gestures, and additional features, you really miss out on most of the utility that comes with the app. After being discouraged by my slow learning curve on the app, I found this class. It really is a perfect “”Introduction to Procreate”” class and I think everyone using the app should skip the trial and error and just take this class instead. The instructor is very clear and demonstrates everything she explains with examples. I also appreciate the conciseness of the lessons. I was too excited to get started on my own work and use what I learned to take a long class full of too many examples and too much explaining. So if you tend to get a little impatient taking classes that drag out and want quick, clear instruction, this class was made for you. Finally, I would recommend this class not only to illustrators, but to anyone using Procreate. I predominantly use procreate for lettering and art, and the instruction and examples in this class translate beautifully to other disciplines besides what the instructor uses it for. I look forward to taking more of Iva’s classes!”
