Wow I remember Robotech from when I was a kid. Good job Xia. I feel like my art has gotten a lot better since I started studying lots of your tutorials.

Keep up the good work! I'm going to school for Game Art so this site is such a great place to see cool concept art.

Beginning: 30% to 50% finding your values.
Then final only use mostly 100%.

Soft and hard brushes, you will have to learn how to balance edges, as for Mech stuff mostly hard.

Watch more vids then you will understand.
Because if it is ROME you want, it will not be build from just watching 4-6 mins vid.
