Here is a monster I am doing in photoshop. I am very new to photoshop so any advice is appreciated. One thing I am struggling with is I have too much of an airbrush effect over everything, but if I use harder brushes the overlap lines that are created are not appealing. Most of what I have done is only used differen opacity settings and different hardness settings. I like the scales I have done, but they don't quite get rid of all the smoothed out surfaces and make it look real. Also if somebody could point me in the right direction for a tutorial on doing grass and landscape work that would be very helpful. These are just a couple of shots of work along the way. By the way I sketched this out in photoshop as well.
