Hey guys, long time no see and all that.
First painting I've done in aaages. Nice break from faffing around with UV maps (: It was a study before I Chrome-Abbed and Noised the hell out of it :3
What I found really useful was keeping a copy of the reference on one layer which when toggled on and off helped to see the areas I needed to focus on most which I would then work on with the adjacent reference, useful stuff! (;
