Karen’s work is inspiring. She is well versed in so many styles, and she does them all well. When I see her work, I want to be able to produce things as well as she does. I think a lot of her students feel that way when they watch what she can do in Painter.
She makes things look effortless.
I think that’s why my favorite part of her interview was hearing where she started from. I guess I imagined a woman that always worked in art. I didn’t realize how hard she worked to get to where she is at today. I enjoyed her cringe pictures tremendously. It gave me hope. I realized that she started where every person starts with digital art…at the beginning, and it’s only through hard work that anyone grows!
If you are not familiar with Karen, and you want to learn digital art, I highly recommend her classes. I guarantee you will learn Painter with her. She is an engaged instructor, who is always there for her students. If you get stuck on something, she will help you! On top of that, you will learn art concepts. Her classes are organized and varied. There isn’t one negative thing about any course from her in my books!
