Question Great videos !

Thank you very much for the videos, they were great motivators.

I am not sure if this is the right place to ask questions but here goes...
1) in the video you start blocking straight away, do you ever sketch a piece of work then scan it in ? If you do sketch, after scanning do you block in the major colours first, or do you block in the masses in greyscale first? Which approach do you take?
2) As hellsgfx mentioned, it will be great to know your brush settings to understand more about how you paint.
3) I am considering purchasing your book on "FAIRY SKETCHES", it is stated that there are tutorials inside. Is it possible to have a glimpse at how detailed the tutorials are? And how many are there?

I am sure I have many more questions, just that I can't remember them at the moment.

Thanks again for sharing !

True stuff, NR The videos are a great motivation, and not a fake one. I like the speaks on the videos. Funny, I read thoughts of another artist (one from my country) who said that how good you are at painting or drawing is only 10% talent, just as you did in the video. It has really become clear that everyone can draw. So I'll just go now and draw or paint something

Thanks for your time, Bobby.

I had all your videos playing the background while working, checking in every now and then to see how it progressed It doesn't matter if painting is not my main art, your inspiring words spanned across all sorts of creative tasks. I enjoyed listening to your stories and advice

These videos are very inspiring, many thanks.

I'm always interested in what sorts of brush settings people use. It looks like you've got a fairly transparent brush there. What sort of setup do you generally use?

Thank you

wow. That hit to me and hard.
I really got inspired what you talk about makeing art, learning and shearing.

I have always thinked shearing your knowlens is in the end give more to you than you give to others. And it's so nice to hear someone else talking about same thing straight from his hard.

I have to admit this was most emotionaly touching cg/art talk I have ever hear. This should be in mp3 in the peoples playlist when thay do art.
