And Smaug! Rawr!

I love your drawings! They're so wonderful and I was wondering if you could give me some tips or some friendly advice or critiques.

I just drew Megan Fox on my Galaxy Note in Sketchbook…

and then I looked at yours and I would love to know if you have any advice.

Thanks so much

Hi, sorry if this question is a little lengthy. 
I was looking at your scenery tutorial (… and I saw you start the colorsketches after drawing the conceptual first sketches.

I'm trying to make a digital painting of my own and I'm confused on how I should do my layering (unfortunately I only have GIMP and photoshop isn't available for me). Are the final details and additions on the same layer as the colorsketches, or is another layer made for the final coloring? 

I would appreciate it if you could give me a few tips on how the layering works. You've been a pretty big inspiration and I always love your tutorials!

Hi BitLion, maybe you can find some inspiration here:… or here…

There are also a huge amount of tutorials for gimp on dA:…

I hope it helps :)
