Venetian Masquerade Steps by JessiBeans Venetian Masquerade Steps by JessiBeans
Okay, this is HUGE (sorry for the large download)

That said, I've gotten quite a few messages asking about process on my more recent work. I am working on a decent tutorial, but in the mean time, there is this! I made this a while back to show some of my process on this piece: [link]

Most of this is still how I work, though I tend to be a bit less rigid anymore (I think)

Hope it helps, and fire me any other questions you may have! I'll do what I can to answer them, and I will upload a more up-to-date tutorial soon :)

Wow...I am glad it is huge! For a mostly traditional artist like myself, seeing these steps is sometimes pretty enlightening.

Lemme ask to see if I got it right: you make a sketch, then a new layer over it with some base colors (including BG?) and over these 2, you paint on normal mode layer? o.o
I always get curious about other artist's process. I kinda get annoyed from painting - always adjusting layer opacity to see if it's going good, you know XP still haven't found a easy way to deal with it.

Btw, pretty awesome tuto and painting!

Do you intentionally leave linework in the finished piece, or is it just kind of a biproduct of the process? Lately I find that I'm never sure how to go about dealing with all the muck of the original sketch.. I do generally sketch in Photoshop though, so maybe it'd be cleaner if I scanned in a pencil sketch. Just musing out loud here I suppose.. any input on the matter would be appreciated though. :)

Great process walkthrough!
