With a blender brush :) or Smudge if you use Photoshop, but I don't use that for painting.

If there's anything I love looking at, it's tutorials. The picture when finished is absolutely beautiful!! It takes a lot of work to do these kind of drawings, huh?

:XD: It doesn't matter. I mostly like tutorials not so that I can use them, but so I can see the process another artist goes through to get their results :)

darnit, i work in a similar way yet my work is no where as good as this >.<

and i tend to do the eye when i get bored of the main body :XD: some people say the eye is the center of the piece O_o but i start with the muzzle first :D

:iconamandadrage:
AmandaDrage Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2007
well keep chugging and it'll improve naturally... I've always worked this way (more or less) since I first got a tablet and art program. but my early stuff was not all that XD

same here... to me the eye is the part I enjoy most. don't know why, maybe because it gives the whole thing a spark... anyway I worry that if I do it first, I'll lose interest in the rest of the picture!

another one :D I think it was rewston who said the same. I think if I did the eye first, the fun part would be over then I'd lose interest in the whole thing. I'm fishbrained like that :lol:

...hmm... yep... then its pretty hard :XD: you just are pretty good by now... i mean...you have anatomy down, major stores of talent, and an excellent imagination ...so combined i mean it may not be that hard for you... but...yep!

AmandaDrage Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2007
only recently started tapping the imagination part... I think. for years I just straight copied photos. Which is cool, but with a subject like horses it can get a bit samey... is nice to branch out and use your brain a little sometimes :D that's hard for me, lol!
