Pros: Easy To Understand, Good Resource, Informative, Entertaining

Best Uses: Occasional Refresher

Describe Yourself: Intermediate

As a fan of Adam Hughes and a beginning to dabble with markers artist, this DVD was a must have for me. First the bad points; this isn't exactly a bad point but this DVD isn't really an instructional on how to draw (although Adam is seen sketching and fleshing out the drawing), it's a tutorial for how to use markers. many artists are starting to use marker techniques so it's great to watch one of the best practicioners at work. Starting from scratch, Adam builds the work up in layers, clearly explaining the techniques, his processes and the choices he makes as he goes along. While providing an insight into the artistic process, this is best viewed as an essential tutorial in effective use of markers. Production value is simple but clear, while the contents are quite inspiring. Well recommended.
