    Hi, great site, I’ve been downloading a bunch of vids to put on my tablet so I can pause them as needed without having the desktop computer on. Is there an index page for the drawing vids as there is for the painting vids? If not it would sure be helpful to have one.
    Thanks, I’ve also bought a couple of the premium tutorials and they sure have helped too.
    Thanks again,
