She was born to do great things and her cleverness, restfulness and ambition will take her to extraordinary heights. So its no surprise that mere seconds after it is placed on her head the sorting hat cries out "Slytherin"

The Tutorials, challenges, resources and critique forums here are all amazing and helped me learn the skills and continue to help me improve. Also our fellow artists are super helpful and friendly and usually willing to give advice. Like y
  13. @bewitching. Gaby, Thank you so much for the critique. You gave me a lot to think about and some constructive areas for me to pay extra attention to. I will have to work more on contrast for sure, I already use b+w gradients on soft light and curves in all my coloring, so I may check out and see if there are some tutorials to improve it a bit more. Your comments were really helpful and appreciated. @finxter365 Thank you so much for popping in and for your sweet comments. I love that bowtruckle sig too.

      I'm conflicted, because that was really hard, so I don't want to make two. But that was the story I was going to use for the UC this month. But I could always choose another book for the UC to, preferably with less characters.
