Re: Yannis

I thought this guy would be difficult but y'all proved me wrong..

Lynn that looks a lot better without that busy background

Peter it's 'bout time for a mini tutorial as I am stumped as to your excellent sketmudging you can use this pic if you want ( I've read the smudging references and tried some sketches but all I wind up with is a screen full of mushed around gobbly goo.. guess I need a tut on how to develop talent cause I Ain't got none and you definitely do! Help us understand!) Oh, BTW I LUV the sketches you have done lately, including this one! ... very refined !

aartist I like the way that came out, very nice

Lyle you somehow made him look more dignified.. good job!

John, nice strokes and texture I like it a lot!

Craig, I concur... now I wanna learn how to toooooo!!
