Course Description

If you never know how to draw something, for your game or for pleasure, you don't understand how to start but really want (maybe for years) - time has come. In this short video course You will get the very first basics of drawing vector graphics on computer - for RPG, for arcade or adventure, for anything else.

Just because You can and now You have the correct tool.

Few months ago I have no idea how to start. All my painting skills - from school lessons and was very primitive. But I want to start make my own graphics for my own games. I just want to start make something better than yesterday.

You can do the same and - with my help - get it easier and faster.

Little bit more than 30 minutes and You will draw Your very first blades and swords^ short sword and double bladed sword (or knife). Just follow the instruction from the video, make the right moves - and it will be done.

There no need in special skills. You don't need to have any skills or professional software. Just willing and little bit patience. Video builded for very beginners and I speak slowly, than anybode understand what to do.

Hope You will like this course and in next our You will be proud owner of Your first 2d game art created by Your hands.
