Hair - some excellent advice

Post by slowtiger » Fri Aug 20, 2010 1:55 pm

I can only stress the importance of sketching on paper first.

These are great, thanks for the tip slowtiger. I think I'm going to start practicing this as well right now. :wink:
I love comments for they help me improve on my weaknesses.
