For any other amateur digital artists that see this--watch Feng Zhu's videos.  Watch them all.  Not only does he break down the process of a digital painting with excellent clarity, he also gives a variety of tips for working in the concept art and design business, which is of course hugely helpful to anyone looking to make a career out of their scribbles.  I've learned loads from these; and of course his art is gorgeous. http://www.youtube.com/user/FZDSCHOOL
