    Hi all,

    I've been buying the custom paint magazine. it's a must have! The first 2 have a section on a portrait on a tank. The tutorial has just given my art a huge step up.

    The process shown has given me so much more control and with this helped me a lot.

    I decided to use this in my latest portrait which I posted with the title secret Santa.

    I've started this post just to persuade anyone looking for a tutorial on portraits to just get the first mag and read it then give it a try I guarantee you will want the second one!

    Im a beginner and thought this was more an intermediate tutorial but after trying it out I have surprised myself.

    Here is the pic I painted with the process used. Although not great it is a substantial improvement on my previous work but it has also given me more confidence in trying something harder.
