How long do these take you? Good job, by the way.

Thank you.

I don't know exactly since I don't really count hours. But probably around 10-15h.

Could you show some of the process maybe some time later, if you don't mind? Maybe ten steps. Especially the beginning and middle stages. I'm kind of lost completely when it comes to digital painting (or any for that matter) and it helps to see the steps, plus I like your style.

I'm afraid that I don't have any step-by-step images, but  I always start with a basic composition and work with a 10-20% zoom. If it looks good on such a small area then it will look good at the end. Always remember to start painting from a big tone masses and then build it all up with smaller details. I know it can be tempting, but don't go to detail when your composition looks bad. Details won't help.

I read that working with grayscale helps a lot with defining tonal values (but I am not a big fan of this technique). You should know that value is the most important factor. When a picture looks good with just a grayscale, then it will also look good when you color it, but it doesn't work the other way around!
Also, it is a very good idea to gain some theoretical knowledge about color and light. This will save you A LOT of struggle (I know what I'm talking about, because I was neglecting theory for a long time and I couldn't be a bigger idiot ;)).

Anyway, remember to see value masses first, and then start to paint them. Don't bother with details. (I personally find painting details extremely boring, while painting value masses is super exciting because you can see how the scene is being built before your eyes).

Read theory, practise, read more theory, practise more... and repeat those steps until the end of world ;)

That's amazing!
I'd like to get some lessons from you on how you make it.
