Love you for this! :) Great tutorial/process. I'm guessing you used a simple round pressure opacity brush to block in at the start? Also, I was wondering, are there any wonderful and simple colour theory tutorials out there or on deviantart that you recommend? Because I have it hard when it comes to blocking in some good colours that mix well together.

Thanks! If i remember correctly i used a crayon pressure opacity brush for the blocking step, i usually do. Its not very different from the round one, except for that it's sort of square shapes with a bit of an angle which gives a nice roughness that i like. But it's not as much about which brush you use as it it about how it is used :) So i would recommend you to use what you feel comfortable with when you paint.

Unfortunately i don't really have any good coloring tutorials in mind to recommend, instead i'd recommend you to study chromatics just to understand how colors work. For example: a matte red color may look purple, almost blue when sitting next to a warm yellow/orange tone, but if you put the very same color next to a cold blue tone, it will look red and warm. Things like that :) I would like to make a tutorial like that but i have too little time as for now :[

anyway, thanks for you comment, hope my answer may be useful to you in some way!
