Continuing my experimenting with digital painting, I have tried grayscale to colour approach:

The idea behind this is to paint in B&W first to focus on values and apply colour at the end, using so called glazing layers. It makes things easier at first (you don't have to worry about right colours just yet), but you often end up with something much darker than intended. All in all, I am not sure if this is something I will use often - painting in colour is  more difficult but also feels more "organic".

Part of me likes to think that the part of the picture that's cut of is her pushing a button that's labeled "Stress Relief" and it's just showing her videos of Zerker getting beaten up or some such.

At least, that's what I would imagine it would take to get a smile of satisfaction like that out of Stainless.

That sounds like something she could do, indeed.

That makes me curious: Can you also paint things by hand?

Yes that's what I meant.

But since you used future tense does that mean you haven't done it before?
