You may or may not be aware of it's a communtiy for digital painters on reddit. its main purpose is the giving and receiving of constructive critique. anyway, i've been moderating it for quite a while now. when i started, we had 1800 subscribers. today we hit 20 000. those numbers are pretty big and i'm very proud.

I was wondering if you would do a tutorial of how you do your works of art
these are astounding and your hair is so lovely.
I'm trying to improve my works and these are just astounding and any tips would be much needed.
Like where did you get your skin painting at I am still kinda stuck with that even if its just a link it would be wonderful help.

well, thanks very much for the kind words, first of all! i mostly use the regular hard round brush and the regular soft round brush for everything. sure, there are custom brushes that does hair, but you don't really need them. start with a big brush and work in layers, more and more details. it's all about blending colours when it comes to skin, change the opacity on your brush to about 20% and mix colours until you find the one you want. google the artists Sycra Yashin and Matt Kohr, and watch all of their videos. they are great and very educational. (i also link to them in my journal.) i also keep a sketchbook with me at all times - i have three! - so that whenever i'm on the bus or whatever i can practice. i don't really know how to do a tutorial though, since my paintings take such a long time to paint and there's soooo much happening at all times. like, i work a little bit on a hand, then i switch to an eye, then maybe back to the hand again, then the chest, maybe a leg.. i'm not very structured :) if you have a specific painting of mine in mind i would be able to be a little more specific. and thanks again for your kind words!

Thanks a bunch I will be looking at that for sure. The one that I really love of yours is One... and two... This is the type of painting I want to do One...s skin and hair are so amazing like I can draw that in pencil or charcoal but doing it on the computer I am still far from it. A few I have done is just using the Burn tool and Dodge tool but I can't get it to go more in depth but ill be taking a look at Sycra Yashin and Matt Kohr today so thank you for the advice and I love your newest work The pendant that's what led me to your wonderful art work I was so astonished with the skin and hair. As its the style that I have been trying to do but mine look to soft. And yeah I do understand that they take a long time mine do as well a few take hours. Funny how I can do it in a half hour or less with the traditionals hope they make it as simple in the future.

oh, One and Two! well, i didn't have a tablet then. i had to paint it all with a mouse! every strand of hair is painted with a one- or two-pixel brush and it took for fricken EVER! i actually have step by step pics of how i painted them, here they are [link] but here's a great video by a guy called Daarken [link] where he paints fur with only the round brush. hair is long fur! you'll see that he starts by painting big blocks of fur/hair. then he uses a smaller brush to get more and more detailed.
