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!

Good question... This piece is about 3 years old now, and perhaps not as good a representation of how I work as it used to be. I don't actually make such a refined sketch, usually, and I like to be a bit looser and organic with my paintings. I am not generally a fan of linework in my own pieces, but some people do awesome stuff with it. I am not always worried about removing them completely, though, because sometimes it can add texture.

I have the next tutorial about halfway done, it should explain more. Will post soon!
I hope that helps! :)

A lovely look at your process! I'll have to remember that 'spotlight' gradient overlay trick, if only I could use it so easily in traditional art.

This is beautiful! I love the Alice in Wonderland theme, and how you incorperated little bits of many of the characters in the whole design. (The red heart brooch for the red queen. the crown for the white queen and the mask and pocket watch for the white rabbit.) I also liked your geisha theme conept as well. Do you plan on compleating that one too?

Yes! I actually have the arabian nights one like 75% done somewhere, and the other one in a less done state. I might dig them out when these next couple pieces are done :)

Thank you so much! <3

So cool! I too appreciated the peek behind the curtain, as it were. I like that you gave the pic a real grounding in realism (the various fabrics have such a realistic texture in their patterns one feels they could reach out and touch them) and yet they also have a great warmth. You do that well, and it was great to see the process step by step. :) Very well done!
