    Your sketchbook is so inspiring, I am going to have to follow the rest and nag about a process vid or shots of how you work. Really interesting style! I just made space for you in my inspiration folder!
    btw this is Photoshop right? Do you only use PS or Painter too?

    Hive_minD- Hey I'm glad my work can inspire you. =) and yes you're right, this is Photoshop. When I started digital painting, I start on Painter, but later moved on to using PS. Just recently I've been thinking about trying Painter again so we'll see. =)

    Fetsch- Hey Thanks for the encouraging compliments! and yes my wife was happy about the painting. =)

    -Well here's several images to show how I do my animal studies. This may not have been the greatest image to show my process but it's better early than never I guess. =P I will do more in the future. For now I hope this helps a bit.

    1- Super rough sketching and block in of major silhouette with mid tone color/value.

    2- Painting in darks and shadows and refining shapes.

    3-On a multiply layer, I add mid tone colors for the purpose of showing where the light is hitting and to create color variations that I will use as a rough palette that I will color pick from.

    4-I use lighter colors from the palette to refine forms and shapes. At this stage I would also continue adding more color in areas that are cool or warm.

    5-This is the final image, where I paint in highlights and the darkest darks to refine and sharpen the image.

    Awesome, I was quite the same. Started with painter, but now I find myself working more and more in PS. Though I am currently running them both next to each other, going back and forth. Working for me so far

    Thanks for the step by step. Great too look at As is your art always.

    Thanks so much for the process post. Although there are general patterns for working up a painting it's always nice to see the little nuances in different individual's approach.

    This is a little- well a lot- delayed, but I used to own an arabian. I recognized the dished face & delicate build
