What students say about the course

Excellent, real-world examples of how to use the numerous tools in Illustrator, all presented in a logical, friendly manner. Responses to questions are handled promptly—highly recommended course.


Super cool!!! This course is great for people at all levels. I’m a beginner and I’m learning a ton. I was trying to piece together info from videos and tutorials online but I wanted more structure, and this is it! He packs so much info into his lessons. The information builds throughout the modules in a natural way. He is also very active and responsive and supportive in the forum. Great value!


Dansky's Adobe Illustrator Masterclass is not just any ordinary course. It offers an abundance of value with 71 comprehensive lessons that provide in-depth instruction. Dansky has done an exceptional job in putting together this course, and the community support he provides is excellent. As a relatively new Illustrator user, this course has been a game-changer for me, and I highly recommend it. The investment is well worth it.


This course is a fantastic resource for both beginners with no prior knowledge or experience in designing in Illustrator as well as those more experienced designers looking to enhance their knowledge of the application. Dan is a very charismatic instructor. He does a fantastic job of comprehensively going over all the different tools and techniques in Illustrator (old and new), when and how to best utilize those tools, and the best ways to combine different techniques to create your own magic. The course is structured really well. The lessons are easy to follow and each lesson is full of valuable insights and feels fun and engaging. Dan is also very active on the course's community platform and regularly provides feedback and answers questions posed by the members. I can’t say enough good things about this course and what a great return on investment it’s been personally for me.


This is the best course ever! I learnt everything I needed to know for Adobe illustrator and Dansky's voice is as smooth as organic butter from cows on a hill in Switzerland!! He teaches in a way that is super easy to follow and speaks very clearly. I especially love that there are challenges to take part in and Dan is there to give his feedback and any extra help if needed. Looking forward to hopefully more courses by Dan in the future.


I love the instructor how he give us all the information we need to develop our experience. I will give a high recommendation for this course for any junior or anyone need to develop their skills.
