Well bro, that's why I like idrawgirls.com because you teach us and draw nearly everything... from beautiful women, to titans, to fantasy landscapes.... everything!
Thanks, environments videos are really one of my favorites, especially when you make videos like this (with good explanation!) by the way for something like this you had no reference??!!

Anyways... Xia, maybe the question is out of place but is it possible to make another "interview" to Doug Williams? I was wathching his vampires and creatures and he has also a WONDERFUL style. Maybe he could give us some more helpful tips... If I'm asking too much, don't worry your videos are already more than PERFECT!

Thanks brother...Thanks so much!

Peace!

Luca> As for Doug Zombie comics, I was going to pimp it out. Send him a 5 questions interview...now I am just waiting for him to have time to reply. We are all pretty busy these days, he's now sitting across the building from me, we use to sit in the same room. Though You can go say hi to him on his blog. dougblot.blogspot.com

Still shall I post my question to you and you make another video or shall I post them directly to doug's blog?

Lucky you... I wish I could live in WA, working with an esteemed company like ArenaNet is my greatest dream! =_=

But my final dream is still a long long way to be accomplished. Although, I think it is in the making. Thanks to you guys for giving me support thru all these time. Seriouly, without having seen comment, e-mail and questiones...sometimes it's hard to know if there is anyone out there on the net for real. :)

This was really great - I'd love to see more stuff like this. Just watching a few of your videos, I have a learned a lot already. I'm going to be watching a lot of these.

Thanks so much for posting them.

I just recently got a Wacom Bamboo and have been incorporating it into my webcomic, and it's been really great. Now I feel like I have somewhere to go to learn some things!
