This is the illustrated definition of epic. The sheer amount of mind blowing brilliance is overwhelming. Your attention to detail is positively fantastic. I love the pacing of this walkthrough, your superb explanations, unassuming tips and constant reassurance. You are a great inspiration and a credit to the art world! Corel Painter and I had a short run, but I am so utterly impressed and enlightened I vow to try again! Thank you for taking the time on this and sharing your process!

Oh thank you for such nice words :D It helps me too - you learn more thoroughly by teaching than by just doing the process itself. :love:

I find it amazing and beautiful to see a painter laboriously taking time to paint in the details in a portrait that most photographers would seek to remove, I can't thank you enough!

Thank you... I was fascinated but exhausted by the end. I don't do this nearly so often as I should, but after I finished this painting, I realized I didn't want to do that ALL the time. It's crazy. :D But I know I can, and I pushed myself as far as I possibly could.

You know, if I ever came to step 2 and my picture looked like that, I would already call it perfect :). This is plain crazy...

If you try, you can do anything you want. That's the bottom line. It's a matter of patience...
