+Xia Taptara (???) Hello there! Nice vid as always. I wonder how pros do their painting without even sketching. I just saw what you did and i don’t understand how you approach it with just silhouette and values. When drawing with tablet, i just separate the space with line art. So in drawing, shape tells many stories. But to directly painting, what i just saw on your video, after you put colour pigments here and there, boom! Horses, soldiers just came out of nowhere. How!??

I still have a hard time with colour and shading, how would i improve this?

your information is always helpful!
My question is:
What are the most important things to draw when drawing for something to be 3d modeled? Front,Back, other angles, small details??

How do you stay healthy and strong when you sit in front of a computer all the time? I am worried about getting diabetes and I have lower back pain. It takes me 16 hours to even get close to what you can do in an hour and a half!!! @USA?
