Hey man, thanks for dropping by my blog. You have nice stuff going on. Especially the animal studies, hope you're learning a lot.

I love her hidden expression. The eye and bridge of the nose is what sold me. I just kept staring to study your technique....but it's so damn realistic and flawless! Great job Shou.

ken:
Thanks man!

diego:
My pleasure. Thanks! Sometimes I question myself if I am. Haha.

lauren:
Thanks!

gerald:
Thanks! That was one of the central key components in making this study more of a visible success. In other words, yes, I completely agree. Haha.

Realistic? Really? hah. Thanks. I am still horrible at rendering. As long as it "looks" believable that is a step in the right direction. Hopefully the animated GIF's I've been making (stole the idea from Ken and Idiot Apathy) has been some help to you.
