Wow so amazing, is there any possibility that you could tell us how you do that? I mean is it only guash ordo you use other media, and what wre the parts of your work. I would like to try guasche myself but I do not know how to start:/

:icondenismayerjr:
denismayerjr Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2010
I use 95 % of brush work with gouache only and the rest is a bit of airbrush here and there for special effect. Well, the best way to start is to plunge in it and learn through mistakes.
If you really love what you do you'll overcome trust me!

Thanks for watching.
Cheers
