This is amazingly detailed and enlightening! I've always had trouble with watercolours since adding details is very, very difficult. I think this has inspired me to try again and use mixed media this time :) I greatly admire your art and am very happy that you share your techniques and tips with your fans!

She's not ten. where'd you hear that?

I say that because I read her tutorial and it said under sketch "...I always free hand drawings, when using references since I'm ten, its the best way to practice your skills." Maybe I read it wrong? but it sounds to me like she meant she was ten years of age.

it's not "since i am ten" it's SINCE i was ten. She started when she was ten.

well not NOW, but in the tutorial she clearly states: "I always do freehand drawings when using references since I'm ten"

I know this is three, almost four years old, thats why I spoke in past tense and not in present

:iconxjasmin3x:
XJasmin3x Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
so you know she wasn't ten when she said that right?

XJasmin3x Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
when she said "since i was ten" that means she started doing that SINCE she was ten. this art is drawn later, probably at least in her later teen years. i don't even know where people get this "she's ten" from. :/

The reason that everyone's confused, is because most don't usually use "I'm" as a "I was", to most it looks like she's saying "Since I AM ten", not "Since I WAS ten"
