    what a great tutorial, and quite simple technique. i’m just a beginner yet (i draw mostly for my own amusement, not professionally) and i always tend to use some very complicated ways… but from now on i’ll try to do like this. actually i wanted to draw a persian girl in some traditional clothes so this indian girl is pretty close to what i’m going to do =).
    thanks a lot!
