Just wanted to say thanks for those painting tips, since i really don't know what I'm doing its great to have someone point you in the right direction.
I can also see that your graphite sketches are better, I wonder do you draw the outline first, or do you use lines for the eyes or eyebrows fist? You might want to, to keep the eyes straight, since thats the problem I have!!!
Keep it up, your stuff is Killer Awesome, those baby flying snake whale things is going great!!!
