    Watching Lisa work her creative magic is so fun! This was such an incredible class, I can't wait to watch it over and over again while I practice using the tools and techniques that are covered. It's enough to make me want to move away from portrait work and into creative commercial art. Such an awesome class!

    There are so many ways to accomplish the same thing in Photoshop. But I always love to learn new ways. This is a great class if you are already comfortable with Photoshop. It is not a beginner class.

    I don't all the negative comments on her classes. She's knows so much and yeah is a little sporadic at times but it all makes sense and is easy enough to follow along. Or...you could rewind the video? I guess if you are a complete photoshop beginner it might be an issue but you probably shouldn't have gotten this class then.
