I was overwhelmed to see how helpful my tutorials proved to so many people. So, I've decided to write this journal where you can leave in the comment what kind of tutorial you think you need and you haven't found anywhere else (or you haven't found it good enough for you). There is no such thing as a "bad tutorial" and we all should be thankful to anybody adding to the great pool of shared knowledge, but I do understand people have different ways of perceiving information and what works for some, won't work for everybody. So I'll endeavor to add my way of doing tutorials in the hopes it will help somebody.

Thus, in the comments, do leave an idea of what kind of tutorial you would need. I don't promise to do them all and I don't promise they will come fast but, as time affords, I'll do as many tutorials as I can, if the subject is known to me. Keep in mind I'm still learning myself and in many cases during my commissions I experiment sometimes for hours to find the proper approach to something. I also take shortcuts and create my own custom brushes to help along.

Hi, I'm Paul , I'm French and I'm forty-five. I am trying to create a french old-school role play with the old rules of D&D basic (with Open Game License). This would be for a small publishing amateur, it's been a long time that I dream to edit a role play, so it's unpretentious personal project. And I would bring my project for a small print edition, I do not earn money with this game, it's clear. However I miss the illustrations and I can not draw. Your illustrations b&w are great and fit I seek. Will you let me use your drawings to illustrate my role play? Thank you in advance! Sincerely :-)

PS: sorry for my poor English

As long as this is not for commercial purposes, I'm okay with it. Unfortunately not all of of illustrations here are available since some of them can't be republished in any other place than my own galleries. So send me a note with links to the images you'd like to use and I'll let you know if they are okay.

These are cool, you can use them. I'd like a lot if you could send me a copy of your book when you've published it. I collect all publications in which my work is featured. :)
