Hey, Derek, would you consider making a blending Tutorial / WIP sometime? I am such an admirer of your style. I would love to get some better insight into your technique. Aaron (Olliekickflip) posted a blending tutorial a while back that provided a huge boost to my personal painting skill, and I'm sure helped out others as well. I can only imagine what you could offer us!


I'll add my vote to that. Especially how you get such bright colors and pastels (?). I can't even imagine how that palette works.


Thanks for the request. I'll see what I can do.


Lyn watched me paint for an hour or so when I was at Reaper HQ in October, so she'll probably agree when I tell you that my technique is pretty nonlinear. It would read like "Step 27b: while highlighting the hilt of the sword, decide to add more highlights to the skin (Step 4) and hair (Step 8) and boots (Step 15). Step 27c: Seeing how similar the hilt of the sword is to the boots, glaze the boots with a darker and redder brown." :;):


I've spent only about an hour so far painting my halfling paladin on the baby gold dragon, so maybe I'll photograph it as-is and then start taking hour-by-hour WIPs.
