really great face here, nice hair work too (i can really see how it's best to use a thick brush as you have and mostly avoid individual strands!) :)

thanks! doing hair this way saves a lot of time too, honestly - my favourite kind of solution, simple and elegant :) 

the more i work in digital the more i start to realize how many classic oil-painting techniques can be applied - james gurney (the fellow who wrote and illustrated Dinotopia) turned me on to this one:

his blog is pretty interesting actually, well worth the read if you're interested in figurative art and illustration!

you're welcome! oh, but it looks so complex and realistic to me (perhaps because i have yet to master it)

haha i love that, funny and helpful :) he's quite an incredible artist too (the detail!)

thanks for linking to it! (bookmarked) i most definitely am into figures and illustration :D
