The Rating System

Hey guys, it’s Gvaat. Every tutorial on this site is rated through the Workshop’s rating system. The system works for you to help you better find content suitable to what you want to learn about and your experience level.

Below is an explanation of how the system works. You can find all tutorials with a certain rating by using the explore bar at the bottom of this page.

While we are on the topic of learning, I suggest joining my newsletter (it is free and comes to your mailbox once a month), by joining you will get access to the Subscriber Lounge – a download section with free lessons and a lot more.

Beginner. Stuff every artist should know.

A2 - Intermediate or Art 200

A3 - Advanced or Art 300

Each tutorial on is rated A1 – A3 and also has a rating in at least one of the topics below.  You can easily find the tutorial’s rating at the very top of each tutorial page:
