So here's the lowdown. Time on picture - anything from 20 mins to 7 hours.
Requirements - post at least 4 pictures of the stages you went through starting from original base sketch to the finished product.
The idea is to not only improve your ability in painting but to also shed some light into how you went about it so that others can learn from you. But also so that you can learn from the others who posted here.
Sometimes I will give a theme, others I will give a picture which you must base your painting off.
So this time round:
Vibrant life, for those who don't like the picture
