    Thanks for this! And thank you too Dru.

    Thinking of hitting your getaway in Dallas, but might be a financial wash just to go to NC. And im pretty sure going to your place is much longer hours!

    @musicmacd
    I've been waiting for you to finish before commenting...... well done to you and I hope you've had chance to put what you've learnt into practice so it sinks in.
    I'd love to do a Dru course, but in Australia we don't often see workshops of Drus calibre here except maybe once a year in Melbourne or Sydney, which adds up to some serious $$ if you don't live there , taking into account flights, tazis, accommodation and food etc.



    You took the words right out of my mouth., but I'd like to echo my appreciation to Dru (@airartiste )for allowing @musicmacd to post his Step by step with your blessing.

    You're right that this thread only helps those who wants getting those skills you've got from the course. If you even would describe just everything that was there it's not the same as attending the course simply because we percept most of the information by eyes:) ABing is something visual so... you know. One can ask questions right at the point where something isn't clear. This list of live course advantages can be continued:)
    As I understand Dru's courses are the concentrat of nowledges from many fields and they all for raising AB skills level. And all those tricks and tips are essentials for getting realism. One can spend years to gather them from the experience but the time is well worth these days;)
    Blair's courses is my dream for now but dreams come true:) I'd like to be at Superrealism course and Textures and Special Effects Workshop - this one is brain exploding, I have no clue how they're done though I understand that it's "damned easy";)

    Dru does great work with water colours as well.

    @Vladimir, Alina Tarasenko does amazing work with her students in St. Petersburg if you need something closer to you. http://art-tehnika.ru/

    Thanx Andre! I know those people from another forum for years:)
    I think I'll get more info I need now from people at this forum than going to those courses, I don't say they level is bad. I've got some background in auto/moto custom painting preparation etc and ABing so I need only goog AB techniques that are tought at Dru's and Marissa's courses. That's all I need concerning ABing. Maybe there's someone else that can give such gold info at the courses but I don't know them neither in Ukraine nor in Russia or other countries close to me. I think I can go strait to some good ABshers from Moscow (I'm only night apart by the train from there) for private lessons but again I need the highest level professionals to learn from:)
    But thanx for the info I have not seen their site yet:) They showing good results at their works.
    And actually I've already got a lot from this forum and thanx to everyone making this place so nice!:)
    Particularly thanx to musicmacd for all your SBS here! They're just great. Looking at them I can understand my mistakes and thus to learn. This thread is one of those that make this forum so great place to learn from.
