I've admired this piece for the longest of times. (:
Do you mind if I ask a few questions?
When you are just beginning, do you draw a sketch or do you do that amazing no-line painting like technique? What do you use to blend colors? I have PSE atm but I got PSCS5 extended for Christmas and I need the 'proof of student' thing to make it work. But, what kind of brushes do you use and how can I give it a soft look? How do you do BG's?! Dx Why am I so noobish? (lolplzdontanswerthat) Did you take art lessons? If not, you are so amazing that I'll be disgusted by your work Dx :'D kiddingggg Am I annoying you with my redundant questions?
