    I was loving it until you kept on talking about skillshare even though they sponsored the video it seemed like it was B.S

    I tried them it seemed ok but what i was watching was the things I could find on YouTube etc for free it wasn't anything major. It's those photoshop guys selling a course, it's just the same skills you know they basically perfected it over time. SS was basically everything I knew already. Honestly some of the nice little tricks/methods I found right on YouTube

    Hi i am from india last week i tried to buy skillshare premuim but it was not allowing me to buy it. Is it available for an indian?

    Hi Will, is it worth to buy some tablet for lettering only? Need to speed up vectoring process, are these calligraphy apps really so good as a real ink calligraphy? Or they can miss some moments and you'll have more stuff to fix. Thank you :3

    there's a thing called, 'practicing'. your lettering won't look great the first, second, third, fourth or even the fifth…but it'll get better eventually.

    I was on skillshare and personally..i don't like it. I got some portfolio pieces off it, but feedback from instructor was NON-EXISTENT. did get some feedback from other students though.

    Thanks Will for all good stuff you sharing with us, people like me who have no formal education in graphic design,
    and who builds their experience watching channels like yours, and yes, if you really want study design on your own go to sites like skillshare, pay price of cup of tea for unlimited access to valuable classes. thank you again !

    Thank you for this! Seriously! I've never really tried lettering but knowing that people find it possible to learn online without needing to go to college, for design, lessens the fear of me trying.
