Dragon-A-Day Online: Day 1,345: Double Your Pleasure.

So I went looking for ways to underpaint. I might not have found anything too useful, but I did find this tutorial which led me to the Mixer Brush, which I got really excited about.

I’ll have to try that, beause the details of the Photoshop sketch tonight were a real pain to wrangle out- that under-eye bulge should not be so jagged. :/
