I think this will help me the next time I try to paint a person. The faces I been painting look like The night of the living dead with light bulbs for eyes.
Perfection is what drives an artist.
The inability to achieve perfection is what creates a work of art.

When doing art, what is most important when deciding which skills to develop? Is it more important to do art revolving around subjects you find interesting, revolving around a certain area that not many people have ventured into, or revolving around something not necessarily what you find interesting but something you can excel with?

I have grown to know few advantages and features about the eyes, but having read the tutorial by singular, I was made to know that a man is ignorant of what he does not know. Eyes could be very sensitive and good. The tutorial is very educative.

That looks great just a quick look, but will come back to it when time allows. Eye's are difficult to get a likeness. This will help lots of atrists.
