    day one - learnt to make rock, Fur and Denim!! Learnt a heap of new ways to work with paint to achieve results quickly,
    The course is a lot more laid back than the portrait course, which is also nice!! No colour theory was taught but it is reinforced throughout the day as we have to decide what colours to mix on the paper rather than buffering paints :)
    I will ask Dru if it's ok to post a few SBS pics :)
    Here's what I done today -

    Second pic is less washed out, the denim was a labour of love!! Got Dru's tips to improve my fur, Human hair tomorrow :) the rock texturing was insane and can be used in many ways, we were shown 2 methods to achieve it :)

    I reckon, we could do a tutorial for VR to show him how it's done... and then he can school us in it as well... :)

    The fur is just crazzzy!:thumbsup:
    It seems I know how to do that denim, but fur is that something! I also understand it's quick and easy, but... I must buy that classes in the boxes:) The most convenient way for me to learn now are those "boxes".

    Paul, you're definitely not wasting your time!;) I wonder what will be the next, when you'll get all Dru's classes under the belt:)

    Nice!!!
    I learned more about airbrushing from him than I thought there was to know. Enjoy and take a lot of notes :)

    If you get a chance, tell him Brian wants to know if he caught that Bigfoot yet. (One of his neighbors reported hearing a bigfoot on some paranormal website, so it was a running joke. Which came back to bite us when Dru and I got the crap scared out of us by a bear in his lower building. At least we think it was a bear. Neither of us opened the door to check. Lol)
