added comment inGrayscale Assignment Example 1
About 7 hours, maybe 6 if I cut AFK moments from it. I recorded my whole process this time, nothing special. I still struggle a lot with small details but I am starting to really like the double sided brush. Near the end I ended up switching to the non textured solid double brush and it immediately made detailing so much easier. I don't know what it is with the first double bristle brush, but it loses a lot of coherence at small sizes, like the texture overrides it, still had a bit of trouble even at 3000+ pixels. I could definitely use a lot of face work too, might need to go over that course again. Hmm, surprisingly having more difficulty with faces than hands.

Phew... Might have been about 10 hours I think? I've done a bit of digital painting over the years but never down to the fundamentals where I can do it without someone guiding me. Hopefully through this course I'll gain a bit of confidence and hopefully some speed as well. Being slow is my biggest crutch. Also need to figure out how to effectively do those small details. I wracked my brain trying to find that gritty brush you were using because I really liked it. Ended up just locking a grass texture on everything. I just want to be good with value and colour finally... TToTT, what good is drawing a figure if you can't make it look nice, y'know? Proud of myself for doing it though! I always feel like I'm running out of time, so doing this feels good, just gotta... speed up.
Hi Marco. I'm new to digital art and I'm thinking of buying some of your courses, namely your Digital Painting 1-3 series. My question is: is the course relevant to Corel Paint software, as that's the software program I'm using? Thanks for your time:)
Colour is colour and fundamentals apply to all forms of art
