    Hi Martin,

    The movie screenshot study is great, the different materials are really nicely rendered! Though I think his face (especially the eyes) needs a little more detail added using a hard edge brush, as the face is the primary focal point.

    Looking forward the seeing how your latest post (itcamefromthedeep) comes along.

    Man, those bargue studies are really, really interesting, and good. I might have to do some of those myself.
    If you want some tips I can say that you should at least try to use bigger brushes and then transition into smaller ones. Use the biggest brush for the job, slow down when you paint, and try to think about most strokes you do, at least later in the painting.
    Spending 8 hours on that screenshot study you did earlier is one of the smartest things I think you've done, and doing more of those, as well as environment studies of the same length will help you immensely.
    Way too many people just rush through a bunch of studies instead of taking their time with it, but you've avoided that, so color me impressed.
    Great stuff already, just keep on going, man.

    If you ever have any questions, or you want help, all you need to do is shoot me a message.
    Can't hurt, right?

    Thank you Toffer's for the tips! I have to admit I do sometimes go for too small a brush too quickly!
    Big broad brush strokes first, details come later!
