"Tim showed how he does illustrations and complete pages from thumbnails over rough linework to final inking and colouring. He talked about Layout- and Design decisions, color schemes and so on. He gave invaluable advice in drawing and how you get your ideas out of your mind and on paper (or better on screen). In short: Everything you could wish for". - Michael Boettler


"Enjoyed every aspect of the class. The assignments and the subsequent webinars were very helpful. Tim was very helpful throughout the course. The critique, feedback and plugins he provided over the course was an added advantage. The course was anything but impersonal, everyone interacted and everyone got valuable tips for the work they submitted. Tim was an outstanding instructor, and would not mind joining another course if he were to take one". - Anonymous Student


"It was a wonderful workshop and Tim was an amazing instructor. He helped us out with all our works and even provided us with valuable tips and guides. Looking forward to more courses from Tim". - Ajitesh Bhattacharjee


"I really liked this course! Tim is a great tutor! This was my 5th course here at CGS. Though these were all great, this is the first time I think about doing the course again later, because I liked it that much and still have so much to practice linework". - Anonymous Student
