Promo Pic for my Art - Thanks JAWCooper!!

JAWCooper created this awesome B&W promo piece, which shows clips of some of my non-color work. It really touched me that she went out of her way again to encourage me to take myself seriously as a professional. I was really impressed by how six of my drawings looked side by side. JAW picked great pieces, many of which are favorites of mine. I like the two on the bottom right especially. Thanx JAW!!

digital painting - Dragoon

As far as I know, dragoons are a fighting class that originated in the final fantasy series of games. Dragoons use spears, are typically fast, and have the command "jump", which allows them to leap high into the air and avoid damage.

I'm going to clean the drawing up in photoshop and color it like the last digital painting.

Digital painting progress

Steady progress on my current digital painting.

I like how the mountains turned out. I don't really like the indigo blue colored miasma behind the character, however it is good for contrast.

Suggestions are welcome.

Digital Painting: Sketch and First Step

I'm learning to digitally paint. I don't have a tablet, and I am instead using a mouse. It feels very clumsy to color like this. To be perfectly honest, I actually don't like to paint all that much, digitally or otherwise, but I feel the need to learn. Comments appreciated.

Specifically, can anyone recommend a good tutorial on painting hair in photoshop?
