Sozoroo’s illustration critique has allowed me to see areas in my artwork that can be improved to further strengthen the piece while also learning skills I hadn’t learned in my college art classes.

With Sozoroo's illustration critique course, I've been able to see my flaws in my artwork and I hope to keep the advice I received from Japanese professionals in mind every time I draw.
