Please don't try to flatter me. ;) That last drawing of the chestnut was great. You have an understanding that I don't have of color itself. You made it look realistic, good highlights and shadows, you didn't just use white and black for those, its crazy good.
Sorry that these are taking so long people! I have finished one and have started on another which should be finished some time tomorow. I am trying to spend a little bit more time layering now that I am understanding the colours more so hopefully I can get them turning out a little better (at the expense of them taking a little bit longer) :) THanks for being so patient!
Out of curiosity would you ever be willing to do halfway shots? Like progress shots to show how you're doing the coloring in. If not that's fine too. But I tend to learn a LOT from unfinished work. Maybe I'll bug the other artists too... =)
