I really like this sort format, packaged with lots of little advices, Anna describes her process perfectly :) I hope to see other similar format videos! Possibly next time would be interesting to see the brush size - top bar - but really this is just a minor thing I missed. Thanks, Tamas

There is always something to be learned when watching an artist go through their process and Anna does a great job at explaining why she makes the decisions she does while working on her piece. Beautiful work and a joy to watch a professional do their thing.

Few of the best tips and techniques I have ever come across for digital illustration and painting with lights in general. I love the fact that a narrated speedpaint as well as a detailed process video was both demonstrated. Helps a lot.
