If I were to make a quick tutorial for youtube what would you like to see me paint (and explain) the most? I have lots of painting videos up (and also those LoL art spotlights) but a lot of people have asked if I could make some videos of my self painting a lot slower and with added commentary... so.. let me know what I should focus on.

My immediate thought would be to just paint a portrait of a character with some cloth and metal accessories so I can cover rendering different textures (hair, skin, metal, cloth) and some basic lighting stuff as well.
Hi all, how've you been? I'm going to be uploading some of my work from the past year soon, the majority of it will be League of Legends paintings that have already been released, sooo yup! I apologize for the incoming inbox spamming.

Hey All,
So I'm just updating to sort of explain my absence, I've been working for Riot Games for the past few months (just freelance for now while we're working on getting me a Visa so I can move on down to California). If you don't know who Riot games are, they're the studio behind the amazing League of Legends www.leagueoflegends.com/ and I'm having a blast working on the game.

However it doesn't leave me a lot of time for anything else, so I'm not going to be very active here, I've posted some of my LoL art on my blog katiedesousa.blogspot.com/ and will probably continue to post the majority of it there.

Also I'm no longer taking any commissions, sorry for the inconvenience. I don't think I will accept commissions at any time in the near future either, if I have spare time for art outside of what I'm doing for League of Legends I'd like to spend it on studies and personal projects.

Oh gosh,
I got a DD for that oblivion piece? That's awesome, It was so fun to paint... I'm glad it is well liked, I love it when I am rewarded for doing something just for fun! It's like the universe is trying to tell me something, hehe~

Thanks :iconexillior: :iconsuzaku009: :iconbloodbanebr: and :iconatramina: for suggesting the piece and :iconrydi1689: for featuring it. :)


ALSO :iconattache: recently purchased me a subscription!! Thank you so much!!

You guys just floor me with kindness, it's really unbelievable sometimes how awesome people on DA can be, and you all have my sincere gratitude :heart:

Thank you for all the replies on the video entry, I would not have thought to talk about a lot of those things i'm sure, and I want this to be a way to give back to a community that has really given me quite a lot. I cannot promise that the video will be up soon, I have far too much work at the moment, and I am considering making a whole NEW piece for the video so I can plan the whole thing out better, we'll see. (please tell me if you have any suggestions for the video, OR if I should make it a text and picture walk-through... which do you like better?)

:hug:
