    I initially thought Christopher walkin.
    Regardless it looks like a lot of intense work going on.
    Bring it on home MacD :D

    You should of trusted your gut! Mr Walkin :)
    Thanks Bud! It's been great to go over techniques and colour theory again! I had my own understanding of these tools but Dru has fine tuned my mind!
    He teaches you to see :)

    Nice results, Paul! Though, no other results were expected from your going to this course:)

    I've guessed just from the beginning who was that;) No thought about Hopkins was there then.

    Thanks guys for all the positive support :)
    I've had a blast with Dru and the students!
    This course has taken my understanding to a new level! I spoke to Dru about that and he said it usually takes 3/4 sessions for all the info to sink in! This is not finished but I can see it's my best work to date!
    I can only thank Dru for sharing his knowledge and wanting his students to do well, in a world of negativity he truly shines :) (Fanboy alert) IMG_1642.JPG

    Macd that is fantastic detail. Did you use a lot of stencils or shields or is it freehand? Every wrinkle and pore is super good. The eye detail just blows my mind. :thumbsup:

    Thanks Richard, it's all freehand, we had a line drawing which we cut out some land marks and done a light spray, after that it's all freehand including every pore!

    You definetly have a rare talent for this. Paint mix and air pressure are right on it. I'm sure I would have worn out an eraser getting rid of my spider webs and splotches. :eek:
