I haven't put together a tutorial yet, but I am hoping to be able to do that soon! Otherwise the only advice I've written out is here [link] if you want to check it out... and I've learned a lot since I painted this piece, actually! (And I have a lot better brushes now, which helps hehe...)

I would say my biggest advice is just practice; that's the only way I've improved... and also, paying attention to what you're doing: give yourself some kind of plan and TRY to accomplish something specific instead of just messing around. Look at a lot of other artists to get inspiration. I guess I covered that in my journal there, but yeah, it pretty much boils down to PRACTICE! ;D

It's like that alpha version ALL OVER AGAIN! Argh! :noes:

Achievement unlocked 200G: Look at the damn picture, you damn monkey!

*HEAD EXPLODES*

Okay, nuff jokes - serious business now. Uh... 4 hours of blissful ignorance trying to make myself click this tab. Can you believe me, that just...sat there... for 4 hours (seems like 10 minutes for meh) just... staring at that single spot on my screen? Yeah, I think I was drooling. But. It. Was. Worth. It. And don't you dare reply with a single word of emoticon, this girl demands a lengthy response, like the one she's about to write.

Y'know, I'm going to write a chapter SOLELY for this picture. :eyes: I even have some ideas... Oh, Alaaaaaaja, where's my pretty little nervous wreck?

*a shrill scream, followed by a door slam*

I guess, she doesn't want to talk to me right now. Or ever. I think, I'm on her blacklist now. Weeeeell, heh. She'll be okay. Onto the picture.

I LOVE everything, even the title! My-my. My. I think I said everything already at that alpha version, so I won't repeat myself. But lemme... HER EYES. Wait. THEIR EYES. LUF. ABSOLUTE LUF. This is going next to the alpha on my phone, so I could just sit there - alone - and freaking nom it.

Also, Aliya wants a higher resolution for teh self. :plotting: Me thinks, I covered it all.

I hope you realize in the higher-resolution you'll be able to see all my mistakes/sloppiness, but TCHHH FINE IF YOU RLY WANNA. :roll: <3

thank you--so glad you lufs it!! although maybe you should apologize to poor Alaja for me; I'm starting to feel guilty. ;__; Especially with the heads exploding.

Whaaaaa...? I certainly don't see any mistakes. :XD: I'm not that stupid to zoom 2000 times like PS can do sometimes. Srsly, my next ref sheet looks so pale in comparison, I need to work more. Dx

I'm afraid it's impossible atm to catch Alaja now. She's depressed and I need to leave her alone. Also, that's my own head exploding. :D

Undead Edwin is fab! Such a nice contrast to Alaja's golden hair and doe-eyed innocence. :love: for both of you lovely ladies.

heehee!! what a relief, though--it's so hard to try to center eye contact anyway, never mind when the whites of his eyes are supposed to be black. so yay, if it worked!! :D

I didn't even notice they're black until you pointed it out, I can see how that can be difficult. They're...so...fiery...

I'm gonna go talke a cold shower now
