Wow! Hey thanks 10ske:) We'll see how this one turns out. Basically I'm having to juggle work, a newborn, freelance and fun projects like this. I want to finish it before I lose momentum and have more pressure to do other stuff, so hopefully this weekend I'll get some time to work on it. I'll likely write a small postmortem describing a few goals and techniques I had in mind doing this piece.

Thanks a lot for this mini tutorial!!.. What version of photoshop do you use??.. I am kind of lost with the first part because I don't know where are the palet colors windows that you use..

Rayford said...

I'm using CS2 at home. The palette is actually rather worthless to me right now. I'd suggest ignoring it. I got it from the downloadable NoxIzMad tutorial at CA.org. It's a very specific palette for him and I quite frankly find it rather limited. If you can tell from the video I barely even touch it, preferring to mix my colors on the canvas itself and sample variations when needed. I've a few rough palettes that I've made and even some bit mapped palettes to import directly into layers that I use sometimes. Mostly I make up a limited palette at the beginning and then do a sort of 'glazing' process later when I'm nearly done.
