This is the walkthrough of my painting "Know your Forest". It's the longest tutorial I made so far, and I hope I made myself understandable. Of course I could have talked for ten times the space ;), but I had to stop somewhere; so ask any questions you may have.
The original picture of Know your forest.

This one is wonderful, I have so much trouble with subjects in an environment I usually don't even bother with backgrounds.  I am going to start practicing now!  Thank you!  I am going to check out your web site also!

That's a fantastic idea - there is no good reason to leave out a pretty background.

I had the same problem in the beginning. I'm happy to held, and there are also a few Painter-specific tutorials in my pipeline.

Awesome tutorial. I favourited it a while back and forgot to comment. Very in depth, and a lovely piece of artwork at the end. I particularly love the tattoos - and your emphasis on reference. It's so easy to forget even the very best need reference, because artwork is only ever as good as the knowledge of the subject.
