I'm not remorseful over any of that, learning the hard way  has made me understand the chemical process of painting better than a list of do's and don'ts... I know why I do and why I don't. But I have to tell you that if somebody just told me some of the things listed below, I would be a shitload better at all this crap by now.
For those of you that know everything: you may find this an hilarious companion to my stupid-ass paintings of sainted women wearing bras.
For those of you that enjoy learning: you may find some of these "tips" at least something to consider.

You've been on my watch list for a while. Just wanted to let you know that out of all the guys I watch, you're the artist that's grown the most. Looking at your improvement always gets me all fired up to do one more study before I turn in for the day!

Man, thanks so much for your comment, it means a lot to me, really. Your artwork has improved immensely as well! If I could pinpoint what lead me to improve the most, it would be this book's ideas: www.amazon.com/Peak-Secrets-Ne…

Hope to see more of your work too, keep up the great progress :D

Hey, I read the book you recommended. It's... really incredible. It feels like just what I was looking for out of my plateau.


I am switching up my routine to do more of the deliberate practice steps outlined in it. Thanks so much for the pointer.
