Dawnstar and Alicia could use your help on Steam!: [link]
I've had a bunch of requests for tutorials lately, and figured I'd explain Alicia's painting in greater detail. It touches more on my thought process while working, color choice and blending. Sorry if this is sort of a random combination of tutorial elements. I tried to answer the various notes I've been getting.
I primarily use Photoshop, but the ideas are generally the same regardless of what program you use. Unless you use... MSPaint, and then you're screwed.
You'll probably have to download it to see it properly. Feel free to ask questions in the next 12-24 hours and I'll likely be able to answer them. After that I'll float back into space and wander around with Space Sphere again.
