Wonderfull tutorial.
The file is huge, and it shows in detail how to make amazing drawings like =sanguisGelidus
The tutorial is really informative, and is easy to read. Every detail needed is within the frames of each individual steps. Even though that the time it took the artist is without reach for us with lesser skills ;]

At first glance at the finishing result I thought, that no way I can ever draw like him. But the step to step descriptions gives me hope and inspiration to try it out.
It's great of =sanguisGelidus of sharing his technique :love:

The fact that he's included the lineart in a link to try the technique on, gives a perfect opportunity and best conditions of practicing this tutorial on. That's very inspiring ^^
What do you think?
