The latest study, trying to get better at painting materials.
Also I was trying a new workflow, keeping the shadows, ao and first light - passes on 1 layer each for the whole figure, while having masks for each element. Something I picked up, while working on mobile-game-graphics, but it works for any style of course.

I learned a lot about how to paint foliage by this one. The trick is in layering and keep stacking on top. Could have pushed this even further, but I got out of it, what I needed.
This is my blog.
I will share information about workflow, my insights into image-making or just general thoughts and rants about being an artist.
