This was the first ever try at digital painting using Photoshop, it took me about 6 weeks, 5 weeks playing around with different effects , brushes and other bits and bobs connected with photoshop and one week madly rushing to do the actual work!.
I still end up playing around with things in Photoshop , never two pictures are done the same, not because of any secret ideas , its because I keep forgetting to remember to save things and forget how I did things .
So I never get bored as each picture is as if I have just started a new, so it always fun and exiting
