Thank you very much for this! :D Wonderfully laid out and easy to follow. I love the tips about the texture brush as well as the stray hairs. Both of those make significant difference in the final picture and it's something I hadn't considered. Very big help, and very inspirational!

O_O ...hands down. I LOVE your tutorials!! Thank you so much for these tutorials! You can bet I'll be using them on my current project. I've never found a more helpful tutorial as yours! ^^ I'm trying to draw a character from Final Fantasy (Yes I know it's an animated 3D figure) but I'm trying to get it more realistic looking like your art pieces. Do you have any suggestions?

If you want some advice on portrait realism, grab as many (hi res) photos of you can (actors, models etc.) and just study the way the colors and light blend into each other and try and replicate that in your own work :)

Oh man lighting just kills me, lol. It seems so insignificant but it's soooo important and challenging to work with. I really do need to do more studying on lighting, and I'm thinking that's why your works look soooo awesome!! ^_^

The hair tut's look interesting. Thanks for taking the time to create these! Most people just do what you've done on a single tutorial page, you've created 4 pages so far!

I actually tried to make it just one big deviation....but there's just so many elements to think about when painting hair I had to break it up :XD:

That's why i take pictures. I create the scene and i take the picture. It takes like 1 or 2 days, at most. For you to make those images... I'll break the computer if i try to do that. (Sorry for my english, I'm out of practice)
