s-t-o-k-e-n-s asked: hello, your artwork is inspiring! Would it be okay if you could talk us over your general workflow quickly?
Once I get an idea I start with a few rough sketches, like very rough, I’m talking like scribbles. Then just keep refining, I usually have a pretty clear idea of what I want though. Then I start an expansive image search, for instance on the Left Behind piece I looked up a lot of carousel’s and took screen shots of the Left Behind trailer. Once I’m satisfied I gather all my textures, brushes and vectors I know I’m going to need. Such as bark texture, root brushes and ivy and weed vectors, I make a lot of them, some I’ve just had forever. Then I work in grey scale and focus and foreground first. Once I get the composition put together, I start adding all the fun stuff - the details. Then it’s a matter of refining and lastly I start looking at color.
