The Journey Walkthrough by JenniferEasley The Journey Walkthrough by JenniferEasley
A walkthrough showing the steps for my recent painting found here [link] :)

I happened to save regular back ups of this so i thought i might as well make a tutorial! I used Photoshop for this but really my painting method applies to any digital software.

I hope this helps in some way and gives you some useful ideas. Feel free to ask me anything about it, especially if I've missed something :D Oh and i hope you don't mind my walls of text... ;)

Thanks for posting such a detailed walkthrough! Don't worry about the walls of text, it's really interesting to see the choices you made (and why). It's also great to see a picture all the way through from initial thumbnails to final render, so thanks for sharing it with us :D

Ahh yey it was helpful :D glad you think so. I figured i actually used a process on this so why not write about it, lots ;p it's quite therapeutic writing about how you paint to be fair, it makes you think about where you can improve your own process ^^

Very nice piece, and helpful too!
I have a question, I love your grass, how do you 'build it up' so to speak, like do you start with less detailed darks and go lighter? I was just curious about that.
But the finished piece looks awesome, I bet the client was pleased! :)

Thanks! I'm really glad it's helpful. For the grass I do it in these steps -

1. Colour the ground in my desired base colour with a big round basic brush.
2. Start to brush in different colour variations or "patches" to indicate different colours of grass and add some variety. Still using a large brush and big washes of colour here.
3. Take a smaller brush and do large, loose strands in the direction you want your grass to go. Vary the colours.
4. Reduce the brush size more and with a lighter or darker colour (just for contrast) gradually paint in smaller and smaller strands until you build up the desired level of detail all over.

Just remember to vary you grass blades so it's interesting! And I always paint with this technique - larger to smaller. Get your basic painting done first then go in for the small details afterwards :)
