On another art site there is a thread about detail and texture and why do people do it. I mean, why not just take a photo? This was my response. I think it is worth repeating.

Here ya go, have a :iconcrazyllamaplz: :iconisawitplz:

I linked you from...

Look for the blog entry on how to draw an iris. (It impressed me)
Thanks for the watch - this is very much appreciated! I need to return something to the community...

I am running a blog where
you can get a free book on drawing portraits -> [link] and a web directory link exchange for portrait artists -> [link]
Felt bad about my response to your comment, trying to hard to be witty, the painting of Nina went down well and all the things you said were the reason they liked it.
