Be honest with yourself…

Do you struggle with rebuilding logos and drawing shapes in general? All vector artists stumble around in the dark for far too long. I was one too…

Jeff, I’ve been using X3 for about half a year now for silk screening and vinyl cutting. I downloaded your tutorial after reading about it on coreldraw.com a couple of weeks ago. Finally got around to watching it last night.

I have to say this is the single best tutorial I have ever seen. Within 5 minutes of watching your video, I was successfully using your techniques on customer logos and saving hours of time and frustration!

Thanks a million!

” Jeff, I can’t believe how great this method is!

I just started using X3 after my last foray with CorelDRAW was on V3 over 15 years ago and I have to say that you accomplished a lot in getting rid of my nervousness and anxiety at how quickly I could learn to get my skills up along the likes of a professional level.

Until I found your site and the coreldraw.com forum, I was seriously thinking of giving up and going over to Illustrator just because of the abundance of training material. But with the combination of your method, and some other training, I think I can accomplish pro level work in a matter of days rather than weeks or months on my own or even in an “official” college class.

You’ve got me feeling a little smug, especially for a Corel (sorta) newbie. Yesterday I just got the xxxxxxxxxxxxxx.com vector training and wouldn’t you think I’d expect to see that technique done there?

Nope, to both my surprise and chagrin he is mostly tracing all lines by clicking nodes and setting control points. Not to suggest he’s a bad artist by any means, but after looking at your method, I think I’d have the guy beat five times fast and that’s just because I’m a newbie. Ten times once I get it down pat. 😉

I just wanted to say thanks again for a super tutorial – I don’t see how I could have lived without it!

Thanks again for supporting us DRAW users and helping us to become the best artists we can be!
