    What a great vid! The pen tool has always been a mystery to me. Thanks. I like your videos because I always learn something new outside of the context of the video, like holding space to move the canvas. Btw, how are you quickly zooming in and out?

    Excellent tutorial! I graduated from design school almost a year ago and still struggle with pen tooling. I’m so happy I found your video today, I only wish I had discovered it sooner. Your tutorial is going to be so helpful in boosting my confidence in pen tooling and decreasing my frustrations. You make it seem so much easier than my instructors in school, thank you!

    Awesome tutorial. You are simply great at teaching!! As you rightly said, "Practice, Practice & Practice" is what that makes people perfect. You showed the "path" it’s for me to "walk" in that path.
