Daarken mentorship studies

I did a 12 week course with Mike Lim last year - I found it a great refresher and my only non self taught art training since many years ago. A great experience 10/10, would do again. :) Figure I might as well post it up for posterity.

No colour picking or other digital 'cheats' - measuring with grid was used to plot the proportions etc. in some cases. It was really good eye-brain training and while some of the content is rather mundane (my choice!) it served me well.
