Fantastic!! I just cannot see how everyone is getting such good tone with that clumpy brush....I'm missing something somewhere...rofl!

Yeah, love the accurate color. Are you using a particular technique that you think is unique that you'd want to share? Or is it simply good, hard detailed work? Or both!?

Thanks Digi, Smokin, Barry, Marge and Tom :wave:

Tom I use the outline to get my base colours where they should be, then most times I turn off the outline and eyeball the original and hope for the best:D oh and the most important part ... muttering, a wee bit of cursing, pulling of hair , gritting my teeth and that sort of thing and once in awhile things turn out ok :lol:

Marge I love the clumpy, play with it and you will also :)

OMG JEAN, that sounds so much like MY technique!!!!

I really love your skin tone, they are so rich in color and values are spot on. Makes me envious of your skill :D.

hmmmmm mmmm you did GOOD...........Only two things and I could be off base. Her tongue....does it need a little shadow toward the back...almost too pink and her thumbnail...how pickey is that...the finger needs to be over it and I think he needs something, but don't ask me what lol
I love the shine you got on her cheeks, eyes and nose. The colors are wonderful
