Top notch video as usual man. Cheers!Made by Mighty
Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your tutorials. It's one think to draw on paper, yet another to create artwork directly in Illustrator and yet again a completely different game to take hand drawn work into Illustrator. You've managed to make this process make sense and again, I thank you for your video tutorials, they've been a real godsend.jeremy rozen
