    Some recent sketches & study
















    Some high key painting stuff:




    OLD stuff:










    This is from this afternoon painting over a sketch.


    See you later,
    to be continued....

    A lot to love here, especially all the girlies . The first blonde's hair is a little flat though, no?

    I love your art, very unique drawing style! Plus idrawgirls is my favourite website for digital art (along with ctrl+paint, and of course CA). In every video, you make it look easy, but when I try to recreate the art, I find it incredibly hard O.o

    Currently doing a "study" of your Mech tutorial, hoping to learn something about the process and workflow.
