Whew, so, here is my most recent piece!
I will spare the details, as they are all described in the making of material. For this piece, I wrote a special PDF walkthrough, which you can read HERE.
Also, here are the video recordings. They were originally 6 hour long but due to youtube's video length restrictions, I had to speed up the files nearly six times. So, here's all seven videos. Please be sure to check the HQ version!
Video 1: Basic scene definition (warning: messy sketches!)
Video 2: Character definition
Video 3: Further character and scene definition
Video 4: Defining carpets
Video 5: Finishing the character
Video 6: Painting pillows and silk
Video 7: Finishing the carpets :)
Well, I hope you had fun watching :-)
PS. Damn, noticed the comment adding option on youtube too late. I'll move my butt to adding some notes then, seems like fun!
