My boss(es) left the cage door unlocked so here it is! Due to popular demand (2 maybe 3 people) I have written a Photoshop tutorial. It will be a character concept done from start to finish. The painting is not really finished on my end, but I expect this to have 4 or 5 parts. This is aimed at beginner mostly, but maybe veterans can pick up something too.
This is really a test document because I have never written anything like this before. So let me know about the format, and I will apply them to the next parts.
If you have any questions, anything at all, let me know! Lastly, just because this is a tutorial, that does not mean that I am not open to crits. Feel free to add on or suggest alternatives to my process.
I really need to get a good set of markers to color seams, there's nothing I hate more than those darn white lines that you can't prevent without printing on colored paper. Oh the irony, we use cardstock to make our papercrafts stronger but in the end the thicker paper is more visible when glued. xD While taking a picture of this cute little guy I took a few more shots of my other papercrafts that I'd been neglecting, so expect some more within the next week!
Time: 8-10 hours Difficulty: Medium- however the template is not the best designed and may be difficult for those who aren't used to altering papercrafts as they build Designer: Frozen-Fish Notes: The wings and tail may be difficult to attach because they don't have tabs. To help reinforce the tail, glue the tail pieces around a wire, leaving some space on each end. Then, fold one end over a bit and glue the makeshit tab to the spike. After that's dry, take the other end and pull the pieces apart gently(or slice with a cutting knife) for about a cm. Glue these new "tabs" onto it's rear and hold it for a while. Download: [link]

This step is all about finishing the concept and painting in the basic tones. Also some detail work here and there. I will try to finish the painting today and hopefully have the last parts in by this weekend.
