I love exploring different styles and learning from a variety of teachers at Beebly's. Rather than putting all my eggs in ONE basket and following or emulating only one artist, I am now learning from a variety of instructors. I feel I have become a more well-rounded artist thanks to these classes... I will continue trying these tutorials and see if I can beat myself... or maybe even create something better than the original...?
