Hi there! I am a huge fan of your painting style on photoshop and I would like to humbly ask for conformation on a step-by-step process of how you make everything amazing. From what I got in the animation, you lay down the grays underneath the sketch layer, then the base colors under the lines, then you start painting on top of the lines? Also, about how many layers do you typically use for each of your pieces?

Thank you for keeping me inspired to further improve my work with yours. You are one of my Deviantart idols :)

I already love your work enough, but the fact that you make these processes makes me kinda of worship you. Not in a creepy way. Maybe sort of creepy. Jk :P

Keep them up, they are great for learning purposes for aspiring concept artists :)

Thanks, interesting to see how you put in the warmer shadow tones first, then pull out the cooler highlights. I'll give this a try!
