Practicing values and lighting. Used a mix of different references and materials from Wiki Commons, what a great part of the internet to get lost in.

The kickstarter for Woolfe is finally live! Go ahead and check it (back it) out, my mug is even making a debut in the video. Feel free to share, it would mean a lot to us!

And on another note, I've recently had the pleasure of working with Tokkun Studio! They're launching an Art School TV Channel with great footage 24/7. There's an incredible team behind it, so be sure to check that out too!

I came across your feature in the ImagineFX December issue; your work is fantastic!  Do you have any advice on someone who is mainly traditional making the switch to digital painting?  I super struggle on getting things to blend without it becoming muddy, and a lot of my work always looks flat.

Thanks! I really appreciate that! Yeah I kinda came from a more traditional background myself too. I always try to aproach my digital paintings like I would in traditional. Start out by getting your tools working right (fiddle with your Wacom settings until it feels like a pencil or a brush) and then just don't think about the software your using. Use Photoshop as if it's a regular canvas, select colors as if you were mixing them with paint, erase as little as possible, that sort of stuff. Basically it's just trial and error until you find your ideal process. Hope this helps!

You're welcome (:

And that's a good way to think about digital painting; I've had Corel Painter X and my Wacom tablet for nearly 6 or 7 years now, but I've never thought of it as painting it that way despite being able to change "traditional media" brushes D:  When you work, do you have a particular method you use when it comes to layers?  Like, do you prefer keeping your backgrounds on a single layer, and then putting characters or such on another?  I've always used a different layer for each color, but I have a feeling that might be what is contributing to the frustration :/  But I shall experiment with making the right types of brushes and just practicing (:  Thanks so much!

Yeah I usually work with layers on client work. It makes it easier to change things if needed. A great idea is to think about layers not in terms of colors, but in terms of shapes. A shape like a rock formation or a house, or a character is best put on a seperate layer. That way you can work around the edges and push your values.

Nowhere in particular, I studied advertising in school, but other than that I watched (read) a ton of tutorials online.
