The comprehensive photoshop lessons forever changed how I paint, whether it be for texture painting or concepting. I haven't followed anything that so directly led me towards personal growth as a digital artist.

I have learned a lot! Now I know what I should do at all the stages of working on the concept, where to look, how to iterate. Feeling really inspired after watching them!
