Hello Xia,

First of all let me thank you for creating this incredible blog. You have a talent that is out of this world.

I have always been a frustrated artist. I always knew that I was able to draw quite good, but I have never practised... until now.

I'm 36 and I've just started to follow your lessons. I will send you my first tries only to thank you for the work you are doing.

I bought your walkirya lessons and I enjoy watching the tutorial again and again.

Lastly, let me make you a tutorial request:
Your tutorials are focused on digital drawing and painting so, maybe a basic tutorial about brushes, layers and the basic "digital environment" would fit well on this blog. I'm not talking about an in-depth Photoshop tutorial, but how to use the basic sketching and painting tools.

Many thanks !!

Thank you for your kind words. This blog is somewhat an accidental creative from experimenting stuff.

Anyway, you are a late bloomer, like me. I didn't start taking art seriously until I graduate from college and start working in business field for a few years. Long story...

Your request is coming up in about a week. PS basic walk around & environment for sketch and drawing.

I do also have some custom brush tutorials and Photoshop shortcut on this blog. Look through the menu, it should be somewhere in the bottom.

Thanks again for your support.

BTW, practice just a little by little everyday...20-30 mins.
Once a week if you can do the longer ones. And I enjoy life drawing session very much, you should find some in your area. You will love it, it's very relaxing and will put you into the state of Zen and drawing.

Many thanks again Xia,

I will look daily my RSS reader ;-)

I have already done some sketches with reasonable results but I'm not fluent finding the right brush/settings. All my first attemps tend to look blury.

For basic sketching I'm more confortable with Sketchbook but when trying something more sophisticated is not enough.

I will continue practising every day. Lot of stuff to learn from your blog. Thanks

thanks, I will take sometimes to get comfortable with the tablet...once you can draw on tablet as you could with graphite, you will be flying.
I still love pencil more though. :)
