Like I've mentioned in the prior pieces, I've not done any digital coloring in about 4 years and prior to that I never really actually completed one entirely. Therefore, I decided to relearn it basically and stare at the computer screen instead of my usual paper for a change. Was a headache at start but if you can paint traditionally you CAN paint digitally. You just have to believe in your abilities and settle in. It'll feel natural, just give it some time. That's my one bit of advice to those who are still thinking about trying digital through a traditionalists point of view.
Did this for Warhammer Online's fan art submissions. I made a cheesy composite to kinda show how i sorta did it. It's not exactly step by step but you should get the general idea of progression.
