    right folks it that time of year again for more study :) Dru has kindly allowed me to post progress shots of the work,

    Blair synthetic paper with Createx Illustration paints

    We began by mapping out our landmarks, then we progressed to the eye, buffered paint was used for the iris with additional colours added as we progressed :)

    Then we started on the skin, again buffered paint is being used to increase accuracy, lots of erasing using various tools, there is a ton of work here!

    We continued working around the eye with Dru showing us different ways to approach texturing, these classes are full of information - life changing information that allows you to 'see' :)

    Class number 3, it's been great to go over stuff that was taught on the first course, as expected I learnt more, but just as importantly I now have ways speed up what I have been practicing :)

    I know this is going to be a killer piece and I find myself hearing Dru’s voice talking as I’m reading. Must be all the ‘classroom in a box’ videos in my head lol
    I love seeing the progress pics
