Hey, i love your work (and I love dragons *^*), so can you please post a video tutorial of you colouring a dragon?
I am trying so hard to learn how to do it but there are no tutorials, just time lapse videos, and I don't understand exactly what to do.
If you could make a step by step tutorial (I know it's a hard work though) I'm sure a lot of people would appreciate that.

hrm, I'll try to do one when I have time. Meanwhile, here are a few of my existing step-by-steps: [link] . I sometimes start with grayscale then go to color from there, sometimes directly paint in color. If you are just learning, I recommend starting out in grayscale so you can break down the battle into smaller, more manageable chunks. As in what colors to use, looking at photos and other people's paintings you like and study their usage of colors helped me quite a lot.

Good luck on your journey! Thank you for the kind comments.

My lack is in the use of the brush, I have a little pen tablet that I use to practice, but I just can't use it, I really suck with brushes XD
Now I'm improving my traditional drawing skills, I usually draw mangas, even if I'm not so talented :|
Just, keep doing such a good work ;)
