I enjoyed the exercises we did in our first digital painting class, although I found it strange not using my regular set of brushes (next time I'm planning on using my own). On top of that I tried a different method to how I usually digitally paint.
I usually draw line art first then block in darker colours, later on adding highlights. This time I tried blocking in the shapes first instead since I know this works for some people but I'm not sure it's right for me. Despite this, I think them came out reasonably well...it's good to try out different techniques anyway.
