Allan: Too kind, man...too kind. I look forward to seeing it!
I officially have PaperX and LINRAN to thank today. PaperX for being multilingual and LINRAN for being a genius. Basically if you haven't already, you should check out PaperX's translation of LINRAN's light and color theory tutorial thing. It's kickawesome.
Tried a different brush today...used painterX but did use the color selector, instead, I used the RGB selectors...I really felt like I could get way richer tones that way...kind of strange. I'll have to continue working with it too see what more I can learn. Thanks to the both of you.
This may not be the best likeness but I was able to get some simple color down, that was nice.
