I'm using this picture as a reference picture to test some new techniques I learned and so far the picture is turning out great. Not nearly as good as this but it's good. I hope you don't mind if I do that. I'll make sure and site you.
Thanks! I know its something most artists shortcut with textured brushes to save time, but everything here was done with simple hard and soft round and elliptical brushes, nothing textured. There's something that I love about adding those details manually when I got the time.
Sometimes I hate you because I'm not anywhere near as talented as you and pretending to hate you to cover up the jealousy makes me feel a little bit better. And then I remember you're too awesome to hate.
