ok, so if you didn't take any classes on art....did you read books or go to certain tutorial websites??? Where did you learn the basics?? I have a small amount of ability :lol:...but absolutely NO knowledge of how to begin :( I'm just amazed by your work ....especially for having no training,

Shal: Thanks!

Fae: Of course I read books. Lots of them! And I watch drawing/painting videos as well. :) The biggest leaps I have made have come from just practicing and letting yourself make mistakes.

Bran: Thanks!!

Next step...uh...I really screwed up her face and I am just starting to get it back.

In the earlier stages, she had more deep set eyes....a more ethnic or Native American look. Do you plan on trying to recapture that? I kind of liked it :)

Mol, your work is always so interesting...makes me wonder just how different your view of the world is from mine.
