OMG I so wanna try this now. I have such a hard time mixing traditional media with digital, but you mix them beautifully.

It's the details that I can't seem to produce , it is an art that I don't, I prefer to look at the works of others . I envy you a bit anyway . :p

Love the step by step process! I never know quite what to do with the sketch and colors with the different layers. I'll try it like this next time!

Looks really amazing, 
just one question, it was made in just one layer?
CGCookie's avatar
It was made it a few layers and then collapsed into one near the end!
