    Khara's teaching style is one of the most superior styles, in terms of Creative Live Classes I've taken. She is clear about what she is saying, without being overly wordy, and her lessons were well organized. Two thumbs up for Khara Plicanic... very informative!

    Great way of getting an understanding of bringing real world doodles and painting into Photoshop for designs. Much easier than I expected it would be, now that I know how.
