  1. Excellent course for anyone who wants to enter the world of creating comics. Plus, Holmes is a terrific teacher!

  2. Online course is the one I hesitated a lot before deciding to enroll. Personally, I prefer offline learning, but due to the nature of my job, I couldn’t arrange time for offline courses. After exploring recommendations on Facebook, I chose to sign up for this course, not just because of the reasonable cost but also because it suits those with flexible and mobile work schedules like mine. The videos in the course are very detailed and easy to understand. For those who are new to drawing or haven’t used tools in digital art, I think this is truly a suitable course. The good thing is that the companion frequently reminds me to submit assignments and meticulously corrects them, providing a lot of guidance. I highly appreciate this because having someone to help find and correct mistakes is beneficial whether you’re studying or working.

  3. The course is quite good, but it would be better if there were English voice.
