Fantastic breakdown of many elements! i would recommend this lesson to anyone, who wants to go into concept art but is not quite sure how to get started. As a semi-beginner, i will be using this lesson as a reference to go back to whenever i get stuck on something im not quite sure on. Thank you Hardy!
Fun, interesting, usefull...
