Light As A Feather by disdaindespair Light As A Feather by disdaindespair
So the netting was brutal. I even did it larger than the photo just so it would go quicker. I don't think I ever want to do that again haha..

I saw your feature on The Favourite Showcase. :) This is gorgeous! :heart:  The netting adds so much.

Thank you! It took every ounce of power in me to add the netting. I had finished the whole portrait except for the netting-- and it looked too good for me to mess up with the netting. Alas, after losing sleep over it-- I completed it and I'm glad I did. :D

No problem! If you are interested in my techniques, I have some tutorials in my gallery and I started uploading videos of me drawing-- I have video links for all of my Morgan Freeman WIPs. If you have any more questions, don't hesitate to ask. :D

Yes, you've heard of me? haha but yeah that's me. HAHA , it was me. I still believe I'm a time traveler but I haven't done it in a while. I have been remote viewing a lot recently though.

Haha.. I just saw Brian and thought hm.. just the other day another Brian asked me some questions on devART. I've only watched a video here and there on youtube for the last couple of years. I had just decided to record my sessions this month so I guess I'm now a youtuber. If only I can really time-travel.. oh, the damages I would inflict... haha
