Great course, I loved it! I watched Gina's 1st course a while ago, and wanted to get this one as soon as I heard about it. I struggle a lot with chosing a traditional vs digital path for my art, and I found a lot of the content inspiring and informative. Thank you!

Such an amazing to do list! I can’t wait to do the homework and the trendcasting boards. I rip stuff out of magazines right now! Especially for color schemes. Tons of information again. Loved the assignment to shop and shop with a friend. To pay attention to why something is catching your eye. Thanks for being honest with your mistakes and what to watch out for. And really, to encourage learning. I feel comfortable with who i am as an artist, but i can certainly learn so much more. Especially painting digitally. I DONT WANT TO! But i know it’s time. I don’t need to do it in another style or redefine myself as an artist, but there are so many ways understanding how to manipulate my work digitally will help in the long run. Seriously Gina, ten more classes from you would be awesome! If you do an interactive class i would be the first to sign up. Hopefully i can get the homework done soon. But being super excited about it may indicate this is the path i want to be on! Thanks again!
