    makes sense in the stomach area with the bumps, makes her look more like an athlete.
    and you’ve overlooked the specularity directly under her left nipple.

    but great series, thanks for sharing your process and uploading :)

    i like that you do your stuff in real time. easier to learn how to do things. its so annoying to find or BUY!!! tutorials on how to do things that are 30-min to a few hours and its compressed to 5-15min video.

    Listening to you describe what you’re doing is great, and not something you hear artists do very often. You’re art really inspire me. Even you’re still lifes.

    Doing that in real time is something you do exactly right! HEy, it is slower, but that is exactly how it is when you do it yourself. It really lowers the frustration level ;D

    Thanks for all the tutorials you keep posting. I already watched some of them but this is the first time I work on the subject while watching it, that’s why I wanted to comment.

    If you’re curious, I posted my bust painting on my blog:

    Btw, you told many times on the video that you keep concentrated on the shapes and don’t think on a human body, but I couldn’t avoid that and at the line drawing phase I drew lines I use to draw for figure hehe

    Thanks again!!

    Hi Daarken, thanks for all the great tutorials. I have been a professional graphic designer for the last 10+ years, and will be transitioning to a work-from-home position soon. This will (hopefully) leave time for me to pursue my own artwork. But, being a designer at a small firm, we do not use waacoms. Do you have any suggestions for acquiring one for a “novice”? (ie. Buy used? Purchase low-level version? Or just jump in and get a good one.)
    Thanks again for all the great stuff you put up. It is really rekindling the fire!
