It's really nice to find a working digital artist who is willing to dedicate so much time to helping other artists grow and learn like this. :) I very much enjoyed your video, and I appreciate all the tips and tricks you like to show us!

Personally, I have a very hard time with tones and creating a strong color palette. I would love to learn more from you about how you choose colors, and what tones work better than others, and how to determine a palette for a particular mood.

Great video Clint :).

I think it'd be great if you could maybe give some pointers in a future video on learning the fundamentals of drawing. I've gotten pretty good with proportion, but I've been struggling with learning anatomy lately.
