Tutorials and techniques
Quite a lot of people keep asking me for tutorials and to be honest I see no point in creating yet another strip on how to paint skin/clothes/light/carrots/whatever. There are so many of them out there that it would be simply a waste of time to sit and basically copy what's already been told.
Instead, I've decided to make a compilation of different tutorials and charts that I personally use to learn how to paint.
The most important thing you need to learn even before starting to read a tutorial is that all walk-throughs are meant for you to understand how things work. My point is that after reading and later practicing a tutorial called 'how to paint a glass duck' you should be able to paint not only a glass duck but also anything else made of glass. You should concentrate on understanding the rules and patterns instead of trying to copy what you see on the image. Otherwise you'll end up knowing how to paint only a few things from only one perspective and one lightning pattern.
Hope yo

I am an aspiring photographer, writer and painter. I want to learn as much as I can and develop my skills as far as possible. Considering that, I am open to any and all critique.

Critique, not criticism.

If you can give me any advice, by all means, please do.

so, does your interest in 'mustard,' as seen in the text of your deviant id, pertain to a certain condiment or is a double meaning involved? ;p

If such a reference existed it would indeed contain a double meaning :D
