  • Description: Totally killed my neck over this one... very VERY first pic done on the comp, and I can see more wrong with it than you can. Please don't waste a precious comment on something wrong with it...

    Took about 8 hours STRAIGHT (only up for bathroom/food/drinks) with a tablet. NEVER DOING THAT AGAIN.

    So yea, tell me what you think! I have no idea who this chick is, don't ask.

    Comment, rate, enjoy, and check my gallery for more works!

  • I dont know if this will shorten the time but heres some
    things I found out:

    Use the airbrush tool for more detailed shiny parts.
    Dodgeburn tool is great for say you make a shooting
    star in a dark sky, you can unravel the dark blue to make
    it look like its glowing.
    Also say your making a grass skirt. Before you draw the
    legs, put the patch of green and at the bottom use the
    smudge tool and pull the green down with it.

  • don't tell me what's wrong with it, but if someone could give me some tips so that it doesn't take half the day, i would be most interested in hearing that x3
