Got myself a few different sized tortillions this afternoon to see what all the fuz is all about and I'm totally amazed by its properties and application.

Yeah! Nice work on the interior of the face. It really looks good. Your outline, though fuzzy is still an outline and IMO should be fixed. Lighten the exterior lines, especially around the chin and you'll really have something.

An amazing improvement over last piece you showed. It looks like you had an artist draw it for you.

That is a great compliment actually, thank you.

I'm very much impressed by these effects, I'll stop at this point and finish tomorrow.

Thanks! When I was talking to the man from the artstore about the tortillions application and its properties, like the durability and such, he said not to expect to much out of it, being quite sarcastic about it, which almost discouraged me. In retrospect I cant believe such an attitude considering, its nothing but a marvelous tool.

Yes it is and I meant it that way however there was no constructive criticism.

I suspected sarcasm indeed, my bias, apologies.

Almost finished but I'm a bit unsure about the hair though, I will sleep on it instead of getting too hasty with it.

p.s.
Last night I actually dreamed about drawing and all kinds of different pencils :surprise: I had the same when I was working as a programmer, pretty neurotic but I guess that is what you get when being somewhat obsessed about it.
