One more tutorial is on its way, but Vimeo hasn't finished converting it yet. ETA is 25-30 minutes. Thanks!

I didn't really think about doing that. If people want they can always purchase one of my tutorials or something from my store. I'm not really doing this for money or donations, so I don't really want to put a donate button on the site because I don't want to give the wrong impression, if that makes any sense. I appreciate it though!

Well, more people have been pushing for me to add a donate button, so I added one to the site. Donations are strictly up to the individual. My intention for the site is still for it to be a free resource. Thanks!

I can't thank you enough for this - for people like myself who have few options other than self-training, resources like this are a goldmine. :D

Awesome! Congratulation! The site really looks amazing, and the videos lives up to the usual high Daarken standard!
I'm already hungry for more! :)

One question, is it possible to sign up for the forum without using one of those social sites (facebook, twitter, etc.)?
If possible I'd prefer not to create an account just to be able to create an account on your site.

Thanks! Yeah, unfortunately the forum client I am using forces you to use one of those sites to sign in. Sorry about that :(.

No problem. I suppose it's high time anyway to join one of those.

By the way, this cannot be said enough: thank you so much for all the work you do for the fans of your work and people like me who aspire to do great art like you!

Out of the 12 different sites you don't have any? Heh, I figured most people would have at least one.

Thanks. This is awesome!

I didn't know how many artists actually had problems with carpal and tendinitis and stuff ._.
Thanks for posting a video about that, made me remember to be more careful, because I had tendinitis, now it's mostly gone, but I think i'm pushing it.

So yeah, Thanks again!

Yeah, it seems to be mainly digital artists that have problems. Most traditional artists I know never had any problems with it. Maybe I should have stayed with oils!

The book is finished, but the publisher can't publish it until the end of next year. They only have two publishing cycles every year and I missed the summer cycle, so I have to wait for fall. Sorry about that! It is coming though, I promise!
