Lovely pallet of colors! Love it! :)

Oh yeah, that's heavily based on "old masters'" pallete. And Mullins :D

That' funny. Not that I "get it". Whatever you mean by that.

I couldn't tell if it was supposed to be a picture of something in particular and I couldn't understand why you would name it "Catholic".

For me it looks like a golden statue - of someone wearing a head piece that reminds me of something catholic, and the hands are together - as if praying. Also "Catholic" means "Universal" which is a cool idea in itself, I think. But for which specific reason he named it this I dunno. Hope it somehow makes sense.

LOVE IT! Great job Ted!

Wow, thank you so much! All recent pieces of mine are much much more what I want to draw, so I'm twice as touched by your reaction.

You did great! :D

Bold piece. Very good pallet and brushwork.

Very glad to hear that from you! There is some probability of that image being replaced after some time -- I try not to leave anything overly sketchy.

I would love to see your workflow to get this traditional media feeling and mix of colors.
I know you like Craig Mullins a lot and it reminds me of his work for sure, he is also my favourite of all times.

I think I won't have much time/eagerness for making videos, so just a quick piece of my own findings: what helps is using really small brush, zooming out, and using it instead of medium-big sized soft brush. Like, you want to add a little of orange to that area -- just take 1-5px brush and do a light hatching of the area with contrasting color.

As painting shows, Mullins is bigger than that trick *of course*. But that little thing is important. Oh, and although he says he doesn't use custom brushes, he uses default *texturing* brushes a lot. That's very important.

Thanks for the tips! I kind of do that already but I may try to experiment a little bit more with it.
Here is my zoomed in brushwork goo.gl/qIftUD

Wonderful! Right now I see you use a "dot" as a base for texture. You may also want to try using thin long lines in addition, you can space out the dots more irregularly (very dense here and very scarce there), maybe also working with a large hard brush with 20-30% opacity.
