HI again!
I just came to ask: what makes an asian's face look asian? (yes, it does sound like ridiculous question lol) I really want to practice soon (and I also commented on the daily sketch part 1 of that evil man thing, you'll know the comment when you see the name of the sharer)
(by the way, don't take it as racism... >_>)
I just wanted to thank you for the tutorials on YouTube. I draw for hobby, but your work inspired me to push myself and experiment more. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and amazing illustrations! :D
