OK- back from Brazil! I did some sketching on the beach over there, but the congress was great and took most of my time.
Moving on quickly,
sony; Thanks! I actually wanted to go there becaus I was closeby, but didn't happen ;[
Angel Intheuk; Cheers, had a lot of fun there. I did try to go for the melted-metal look. Mouth area just kept causing trouble and I never really got to solve it. But yea practice practice practice.
zou; hah, I'm getting rid of the 'unposted material' habit - I need to just work on stuff more deliberately.
BenjaminL; No problem! I intend to keep adding to it. I love to have ref readily available.
Hai; I don't mind the "digital look" actually, as long as it does not harm the believability or effectiveness of the image. I usually think it does, though, hehe.
Yuki Slider; hey man! Hah, I wish. Glad you like it, it was a strange project.
Entry for a challenge over at http://artorder.blogspot.com/. Topic was "Log Monster". Had a lot of trouble with this one.... So next up is a bucketload of studies.
