..Drawing Tutorial.. by Snow-Owl ..Drawing Tutorial.. by Snow-Owl
Hey,
It's been a while since I last submitted a drawing, but uni is keeping me quite busy these days. And my inspiration also decided to go on holiday.

But there is one thing that I promised for some interested fellow deviant'ers some time ago, and that 'thing' is a drawing tutorial. So... here it comes! ;)
Click the 'Download' button for a full view.

I decided to simply describe my whole drawing process, along with some illustrations for more clarity. The tips and tricks mentioned inside may be already heard by you, but I never ever said that I'm using anything special. :)
After all, it's always mostly about patience and motivation.

P.S. Please don't use too much critique, since it's my 1st tutorial ever. *puppy eyes* If I get scared, I might never get round to doing another one! :lol:

Thanks very much to *redheadstock for wonderful brushes:
