I made this tutorial back in 2010 as a pitch for a project that never took off. I finally decided I should just bundle it up as a PDF and upload it for anyone who wants to see it. :) It's old and the image quality isn't super great, but it covers my process from idea creation, composition, adding color, all the way to the final draft, and there might be something useful in there for some of you.  :)

Is there a updated link we can download this tutorial?
Also, I read an artist that I really like bio, he said he was inspired by your tutorials. Does that mean you have more?

This tutorial really helps! I just have two questions,what tablet do you have and what app did you use? Otherwise this tutorial helps me use layers properly. I also love how descriptive it is.

I really appreciate the tips on the overlay and multiply. Adding color in photoshop is very tricky for me and it's hard for me to transition from tradition paint to computers.
