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.

I just wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday!

I notice you’re from Romania. A lot of history there!

I've found that a lot of people here in the U.S. don't know much about their own country, much less anyone else's.  :(

I post prayer updates about different countries. Part of the reason is to raise awareness about what's going on in the rest of the world.

Recently I’ve started a personal initiative; if I notice someone on DA  is from another country, If I've done their country I let them know.  It’s my way of letting them know that others are thinking about their home. :)

This update is about your home! Consider it a birthday present!…



GOD bless you now and always.
