    Thank you for this. It is an interesting technique you are using, which i must try tomorrow. Havent quite learned this colouring bit yet, so this was really useful.

    man this is one awesome tut. Im a new painter in PS so im a bit confused with one of the early steps where you glaze dark values etc. Im using your tut for a painting im doing and i wasnt so sure on the whole transparent pigment thing so i just created a new layer in mutliply, add the texture to the brush and set the opacity to 6% in black colour and just went over areas where there would be shadow.

    I have a big feeling that this is completely wrong so could someone give me a basic explanation on what it is i have to do in the step. thanks.

    r@v: set the opacity to 6% in black colour and just went over areas where there would be shadow
    r@v: For my purposes in photoshop, transparency just means multiply. I have opacity set to pen pressure but otherwise I don't mess with it a whole lot. One of my goals in painting the darks on transparently is to try to retain some color in the shadows. There's no color in black, so using it defeats the purpose. Instead try brushing on a color with some saturation at a lighter value and higher opacity. You can see that my first few color washes in the example aren't very dark. Let the shadow deepen over time as you work back and forth with darks and lights. The shadows will get dark when you've brushed lighter colors over them enough times.

    wow - totally stunning! beautiful figures, idea, colors, textures, composition..! amazing work!
    I had to look twice to get the snake head thing, maybe a tiny bit more contrast/focus would've been beneficial to the painting as a whole.
    thanks for putting the tut together, nice approach with those lights/darks!

    Thanks for the help. When i first used black the result was pretty weak but now that ive tried it the way i was meant to, it makes my attempt at environments a whole lot better.
    Im yet to try the lighting but the shadows in the transparent style are great.

    Thanks again for the help.

    Thanks for the great tutorial! I came here from your Cardinal Dragon link. Your paintings have an amazing "Traditional" feel...reminds me of colored pencils on acrylic and watercolors. The level of detail looks extremely time consuming! I will try to play with more textures in Photoshop. My early pieces have that airbrushy feel which I am putting a major effort to depart from. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Excellent, it's always helpful to see a skilled artist's workflow, many of us on CA are still figuring out our own process, so thank you very much! (Awesome piece too!)
    Crits, Advice, and Feedback always appreciated.
