Unfortunately I don't have any in recent years.
Eventually I do want to explore doing them, in different ways, but would have to figure out a lot of things before doing so. At the moment I don't have any concrete plans for them.

How did you transition from the legs of panel 9 to panel 10? May you explain what you did there?

In this piece I mostly just made new layers and painted right over everything. For the bandages that was the case as well, starting out mostly with the general coverage in a single colour, then adding in the details to show each layer of bandage. It was a fairly direct approach to painting it. I also did it on a separate layer first because I wasn't sure if actually was going to cover up the wounds, but then I stuck with it. I tend to make a new layer just to check or try some drastic change if I'm not sure about.

Cool, thankss for the reeply.

Huh, the shot with her hooves uncovered looks kinda cool actually - maybe if the bandages on her raised hoof were slipping off to reveal part of the burns/plates? :O_o:

Can't figure out, what post-effect was used in last pair of frames?  Seems, face was made more contrast, and other parts - less contrast, but which blending modes/effects were used - hard to say.

Sorry for the late reply!
At my last steps I often use a (sometimes chaotic) mix of adjustment layers, blending layers, or other tweaks. Most of the time it involves at least a Colour Balance adjustment layer. I may also end up using curves, or a layer on colour dodge (useful for glows), things like that. I mostly end up playing around with different settings to get an idea of what I'll be going for. Sometimes multiple colour scheme adjustments work and I get stuck having to decide haha :XD:
So basically I do it based on feeling. Sometimes the colours, values, effects, etc. feel right already and I barely have to do any adjustments, other times I end up with a dozen layers.
