    Awesome,..how does that hand painting work ?,…do you use a tablet ?,…Don`t go into alot of detail on your answer,…just make it short,..I my want to give it a ry,…

  • I use a tablet and Corel Painter X program and practice, practice, practice after watching the tutorials. It can be frustrating at 1st, but if you stick with it…the results are worth it.
