Particularly the part about haircolour has helped me a lot, even though I work with traditional materials. Thank you!

I'm going to tell you now, every other hair tutorial I've ever seen is a complete load in comparison to this one. All they say is "oh, just paint it, like this it's easy", but this one goes all out and has had the most impact on my painting technique. So, thank you. Lily Thank you

You should make one for regular hand drawing and without colors, just a pencil.

Thanks for the tutorial! You should make a third one. :D
I've always had trouble with hair, but now... Time to go practice until I can't move my hands xD

man I wish I would have ran into these two years ago when i was painting you don't know how many times i was trying to find books to show what you have I spent hundreds of dollars on painting books. now you need to do a inspuration book I ran out of ideas So I took on sculpting. I want to get back into pianting but now I am committed to sculpting so many shows and commissions to do now. I want to find time to paint after seeing your work wonderful job I am saving you as Friends. Thank you.

Would you mind, if I uploaded a german and shorter Version of your drawing Tutorials? Of course I will not claim is as mine, just as a translated Version of yours! :) (i just did this for myself and now I think that other germans might find it helpful to read it in german, too. Because this Tutorial really really rocks! It's easy to understand and amazing to use!)
Thank you so much for it, at this point :heart:

Great! it is possible for someone who actually doesn't draw or paint do something like this (not perfect of course, but acceptable) and without a tablet? o.o
