I think you did a great job explaining the different steps you took in your process. I feel that someone just breaking into this kind of digital painting can learn a lot from this technique. You are so right at the end when you say that someone can read all the tutorials they want, but it is the act of actually doing it and getting your hands dirty that will really help you improve as an artist. This is the best part and advice of this entire tutorial. You have to fail many times before you can succeed. I have followed that frame of mind my entire artistic life. I have failed epic, but learning from those mistakes have made me a much better artist! Great job and I hope to see more from you!
I have one question; When i open a new document and do all the blocking and stuff I'll want to rotate the picture. When I clock on the rotate tool a message will pop up saying: Could not complete your request because it only works with OpenGLenableddocument windows.
First you need to update your video card driver (assuming you're using windows). Ref instructions: ([link]) Second you need to enable OpenGL drawing preferences, but only if your system can support it. Ref instructions: ([link])
You've done an awesome job with this tutorial and I will definitely be looking at it again to get hints and tips for doing my faces and making them look a lot better. I'm just learning and getting my hands dirty at this point, and I love that you have shared your knowledge with everyone like this. Thank you!
