Stay calm. Be the leaf.

Sun Apr 22, 2012, 9:15 PM

I know it's whiny of me to complain and give excuses, but I'd like to apologize for not answering to all of the comments and notes in a reasonable amount of time. I'm in the middle of switching between universities. I'm going against the flow and common sense and instead of being an architect, I want to stay in the art industry. Crazy but feels so good!

As soon as I manage to go through all the paperwork and the most urgent commissions, I'll be back and hopefully concentrate on creating something for myself and adding a few things to my portfolio.

In the meantime, I wanted to share with you a set of really great youtube videos of painting process made by Noah Bradley (noahbradley).  He was nice enough to comment on what he was doing making the videos a great source of knowledge.  He talks about all the technical details, gives tips and tricks, and does it in a very professional yet easy to understand way. I watch videos like that all the time and find them the best way to learn next to the actual practice. I hope you find it as helpful as I did!

On a completely different  note: I can't stop thinking about Legend of Korra. Seriously. It haunts me even when I brush my teeth. It gets me so excited I want to bounce against the walls. I can't wait for the 4th episode and barely restrain myself from painting the show a dozen of fan arts. I'm the leaf!

I wish you the best. It takes a lot of courage to change from a more common happy-parent-making career to a purely artistic one, but hell, you've got no problem with the hard work/pressure (you are making a webcomic, completing commissions and perfecting you skills at the same time) and don't get me started on your talent. So way to go! :thumbsup:

PS: Thank you for sharing the tutorials!
