Love the tutorial. Two questions: I moved from Photoshop to Painter because I wanted to get a more organic feel to the textures, but you seem to manage that in Photoshop just fine; I'm especially looking at the early stages where the colors are nicely mottled and varied. Any tips there? Second, when you used your "fish bone" brush, did you go back and "dig" those textures further into the piece, line by painstaking line?

Thanks, glad you liked it. At the early stages I like to be creative with my color palettes. Here it's probably even a little refined, but it's good to push colors further than you would normally go, at least early on. My colors tend to get a little more subdued as I render detail, so starting out with a wide range helps it stay versatile throughout the rest of the painting. No tips really for doing that, just be sure to constantly change your colors, don't use any one color for too long. I use the color sliders to quickly adjust colors as I'm painting. And yes, I did go back in and dig the textures out more with hand rendered detail. Hope that helps!

It does, thanks for the reply. With regard to the organic feel of the textures early on, I think I'm reacting more to the brush work than anything else. As I said, very organic feel to it. My photoshop work feels a bit clinical in the shapes and blending of the strokes. Was there anything that you found helped you in that regard - opacity/jitter settings, transfer modes, brush shapes, or just slightly changing your colors very frequently for instance?

Nothing technically, the brush settings really tend to just be an afterthought as I'm painting. If I feel like I need to make a change or adjust brushes to get a stroke I'm  looking for, I'll tweak some settings until it's the way I like, but it's different everytime. However I'm in the mood to paint. The thing that helped me was studying painting in other mediums- oil, acrylic, gouache, pastels - and applying things I learned through those mediums.

Fantastic tutorial, and very helpful! I'm a traditional artist, but I've been trying to get better and better at digital art, as it seems that's what people are looking for nowadays. I admire your work very much! It seems you do alot of game based artwork, do you have any pointers on how a struggling artist would better get himself noticed?

Well you've only been on DA for a week, so give it some time! Keep working, keep posting work, use social media, and if you're consistent people will start to notice and take interest!
