Literally, all you need is about 20 brushstrokes of a little darker and a little lighter and you're set. Its digital- if it ends up crappy, ctl+z goes back that far. (Also watch out for the skull/neck/jaw shape, and how hair sits on the head)
Marian Rowling , Thank you my dear! ^____^ You bring smile to my face and hope in my heart of becoming a top artist =D. Marshall is awesome by the way, I would definitely recommend composition class with him too. Things he tells us are unique, I haven't read them in any book before! =O

Hey Katherina I have no doubt if you carry on working this hard that you will be a top artist Well done on the memory drawing exercise. I'm thinking of trying one of these when I get a chance as my memory isn't too good!
Love your pencil portrait of your friend and your self portrait. You've captured a great look on your face like you are thinking about something good that is making you happy. Well done all round and thanks for the tip about composition with Marshall Vandruff.
omg - so many studies!!! impressive. I just starting I guess. Love the SB. I didn´t even know there was something like an international SB day untill recently.
A tutor once said to me: "Let your mind go!" and it didn´t come back.

but wow Kat, you have made a lot of progress with TAD. very inspirational stuff. it's interesting to see the process of Dreamteller and all the work that went into planning it.
i'm not sure what that is at the bottom of the illustration-- is it supposed to be stained glass? if it is, it could perhaps use a few strong highlights to show that it's glass? anyway, just some small nit-picking from me. everything is going well so i expect some more awesome things in the future!
Happy Holidays btw !
Whoa!Really impressive progress
Can't wait to see more of you
Wow, I'm really amazed how much progress you've made in latest couple of months! It's very interesting to see such quick development of somebody.
Here guys're writing about TAD as a thing that helped you with your development as an artist - can you please tell a few things about it? What is that? And how you can get there. Or just give me the link Thank you very much in advance!
Aydinal Thank you ^_______^
Eightball_ I was working hard to make the composition work, glad you liked it =)

Naked Ninja I will dear sir! *___,*

b-dawg Hey! Thank you for the nice feedback ^_^ TAD is an online art school in USA, even thow i'm from Russia I still can study there! The link - http://theartdepartment.org/
It's a really great school with a lot of great teachers. I have been learning there only half a year, but I can see lots of progress in understanding art.
^____^ New from me
Thank you very much for the answer! Love your new updates, especially the girl with medusa, great use of color on that!
Да, а слона-то я и не приметила)) извините. Можно постучаться к вам в аську или скайп? TAD меня заинтересовал, особенно с учётом того, что можно там учиться, даже находясь в России. У меня есть несколько вопросов, но засорять ими ваш скечбук как-то стыдно.
