    I first learned of Aaron’s Phlearn tutorials after watching a few of his You Tube videos. I was impressed with what Aaron presented on You Tube, so I was super excited to try a couple of his paid tutorials. This particular Blending tutorial is quite informative, and it is clear that Aaron is a Jedi Master with photoshop. BUT… I found it difficult to follow many of the topics Aaron discussed in this tutorial primarily because he talks way too fast! Aaron – you need to slow your delivery down. I honestly found it difficult at times to understand what Aaron was saying. I was surprised by this because his You Tube videos are much clearer and he delivers the information much more slowly (IMHO). It seemed to me that this tutorial was rushed. I’d like to purchase more of Aaron’s tutorials because I am really impressed with his knowledge, but I just can’t see myself investing much more without some evidence that Aaron can slow it down a bit. Overall, the content of the tutorial is fantastic, but delivery needs work.
