The pain of brushwork that has been haunting me since I started drawing... It all can be solved with painting opaquely!! (and then smudging) Even though Trevor's been telling me to do it for about a year now, it only now dawned on me that the second biggest obstacle between you and a quick render is COLOUR PICKING! (The first one is putting the right mark in the right spot)
And it takes a while to get that colour right, so most people try to blend it on the canvas, which actually takes wayyyy longer.
For most materials you only need to pick 3 or 4 different colours, the rest is blending. So invest that time to pick the right ones upfront!!!
Trying Borislav's brush technique to improve form rendering and facial structure. Learned a lot. Still more to go.
