Traci Browne
Great instructor for a beginner course...makes you believe it's simple

Jake Spicer is brilliant. I just started getting back into drawing and his process is brilliant. He makes every step so understandable and basic that you don't even notice you're actually drawing pretty well. He takes the fear or the "I'll never be able to do that" thinking out of the equation.

Easy to follow

I bought this course before the Covid-19 and didn’t have the opportunity to try. Now, August 2020 I’m determined to follow this lovely well explained course.

Sophie Skarbek-Borowska
Simple approach, easy to follow

The beginner drawing techniques are well explained and the short format (5-10 mins) works nicely for the screen. Basic materials needed, nothing fancy or expensive. I'd love to see more drawing classes on Yodomo.

Stefania Maesano

It is a good idea to spend some quality time with this course or any other course from Yodomo. I like their idea about how to “spread”manual skills.... I for example didn’t know that I have the gift of drawing and I’m looking forward to spend my Christmas to develop my creativity. Very easy to understand the lessons and I love that I can do it at my own step and I can always return to the lessons and do it again. Well done Yodomo
