    Nice foliage! Keep going!

    Heat and air will dry acrylic. A blow-drier can also be helpful.

    Do note, however, that too much heat will soften dry acrylic. So you heat or blow-dry the surface to evaporate the water, and then let it cool off to properly harden.
    I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

    Hey, i really like this second portrait! Also liked the deer a lot.

    I don´t know the product´s name in english, but there are some acrylics medium that will give you a litle more time to mix and apply your paints than just water. You can also use some kind of temperas, like gouache (opaque watercolor...). It has some things that relates to the acrilycs and some that relates to oils in the way to use then. I really enjoy these! Well, i just realized you might have to change your thread name tought, hehe...

    Keep it up! You´re doing a great job so far!

    I felt like drawing little pen doodles today - dont know why. So I just grabbed my rain forest photography book and went at. I have no clue where these are going..maybe its practice before I start drawing landscapes from real life - havent quite done that before. And then I can paint the landscapes..woot!

    yes I am horrible with pen

    hi, cant see anything I dont like here. I really like the colors you pick/mix, esspecially for your mutant Kitties!!

    Is there anyway in perticular you pick your colors or do you just go with the flow?

    Also I had an idea that might help you speed paint, maybe do 2-3 paintings at once. Line em up and jump from one to the next (use indiviual brushes for each maybe?), that way you could get 2-3 done in the same time? Just a thought really.

    Keep doing what your doing with colors and you will always get a good comment from me.

    nice work!

    I like what you've got going on. It's nice to see some traditional media still being used once in a while. Also Wyoming, my home state is full of antelope, that one makes me homesick! VERY NICE!!! Thanks for stopping by my SB.

    thanks for the comments! I just go with the flow when I pick colors, though I have found I almost never use saturated colors - my mutant kitty painting was a poor attempt at that, and even then its very colorful compared to how really saturated those cats really were.

    sorry for not posting anything for a while o.o; I kept getting frustrated and there were so many things I wanted to do and I wasnt sure where to begin. I kept starting and never finishing drawings, paintings or sketches! I sorta want to continue practice painting with my acrylics, but at the same time I wanted to work on my portfolio for the video game industry - as well as make some insect inspired paintings. I'm sorta all over the place!

    I'll try working on more than one painting at a time, hopefully it will help

    anyhoot, here are two watercolor sketches of insects. I'm planning on making a couple more before using them as reference for a larger acrylic painting.
