This illustration was for Advanced Photoshop Magazine who asked me to do a tutorial for their magazine. I'm not that happy with the image, mainly because I had to document each step as I went along. I don't work in a straight forward step by step way, I experiment a lot as I'm going along, seeing if different colours or techniques will work in certain areas. Having to document each step made me feel too confined and wasn't a comfortable way of working. Oh well.

The issue with this tutorial in will be out soon I think, I will post information of it in my journal when I know.

I had a similar problem on a piece I did for a contest. Showing things "step by step" can be a big hindrance. In any case, it's a wonderful image! :)

Oooh, I cant wait for the tutorial! I have always wanted to see the process of your work


---especially how you do your textures and scratches. Do you used scanned textures? Or do you make it all in photoshop?

Si2 Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2008
All the textures are made by hand and then scanned in.

I think it's quite amazing even if you did feel confine you did a wonderful job. (:
I understand how it is to have to document step-by-step and feeling awkward about it.

It's a bit touch and go.

I just sent the magazine a load of screengrabs and text for the various steps and the magazine designer is going to put it together into a tutorial. So in answer to your question, no. Sorry, I will let you know when the magazine is out though.
