It's always great to see how others work. Your end results seem to suggest to those not in the know that it comes easy.
This progression shows that there's a ton more work involved than many may think. : )

For most, the difference between steps 4 & 5 may not seem like anything... but in reality it's a lot.
Stopping @ 4=great; going to 5=exceptional!

Wow!

Thank you so much :D
You're absolutely right too.

And people tend to usually stop around #4 and call it done. But for me that's really the halfway mark because I tend to get really pedantic with each detail and spend the most time polishing it off xD

I mean, you've gone that far, why not just keep going? Hehe

Usually 2 layers. One for the lineart, One for the color underneath, then I eventually merge them together and do more details.

It feels more "real" if you get what I mean. Like a traditional painting, if you make a mistake, just paint over it :XD: Plus it works better to blend the colors and build textures (and my poor, laggy computer thanks me for it too!)
