And excellence is never granted to man, but only as the reward of labor.

I am new to the world of digital painting. Doing a few of them myself. And Bobby's blogs/ webisodes have been VERY helpful.

Like most artists, I thought I could tackle digital painting like brush on a canvas; and even thought being classically trained HELPS: you need to be RE-TRAINED when it comes to this new medium.

I have Don Seegmiller's and other books on the subject, chatted with friends, colleagues, etc and the main thing is to PRACTICE, play around and have FUN.

You may find a new technique suited to your style.

The dimensional look is outstanding and the used palette sure contributes to a unified and well balanced portrait.

Kind regards,
