EDIT2: Holy sweet cupcakes! Been gone for months, first login and I see this! I am delighted to get this DD. Despite it being an older piece I am still very proud of it. Thanks so much sugarpoultry and KovoWolf for this DD.
Also, thanks to everyone else for faving and commenting. I feel honoured. I am also happy about the DD since it gives all those awesome tutorials the regocnition they deserve.

EDIT: Per request from the commissioner I'll show you a few tutorials and resources I use or I have learnt from some of the techniques I often use in my pictures.
I will list a few of the tutorials I learnt my techniques from the most or that are just plain awesome.

Overall approach to drawing:…
Not exactly how I do it, but I tend to start out with a greyscale base and build my colors on top of it.

Rocks:… Not what I use often, but has great techniques.… Not what I use, but I have it in my collection.… HOT DAMN! My fav tut. Watch out for the artist's descriptions especially of this one, he links to great custom brushes you'll need for this tut.

Trees:… I commissioned this one myself. Great fellow artist and an easy tut.… Mostly for the bark section.… Hmm, nathie is a genius. I actually used his tree tut for the rocks in the back, because the brushes that come with the tut are perfect.… Great one, same artist.… Digital speedpainting vid. Watch it, learn from it.… All time fav tree tut. It's a three part tut, you need to read every part.

Background in general:… Love the cloud section on this one.… Awesome clouds here.… Love the lighting here.

My way of drawing grass is based on this tut:…
And I use A LOT of custom grass brushes. Just search dA for grass brushes.

Fur is based on this walkthrough:… Looked through the artis'ts gallery and you'll find lots more.

Eyes:… My way of painting eyes is based on this tut. I use textured brushes to make them more interesting looking.
Texture is always good.

Resources I like to use:…
I use lfoliage brushes like this:…
You can find loads on dA, but they are very easy to make yourself. You will also mostlikely have to change Mynti's brushes, since unless you have a Wacom Intous, most tablets DO NOT support tilt. Mine doesn't so I had to fiddle with the settings to get the desired effect.

Last but not least take a look at my Stock and Resources Collection:… And my Tutorial Collection:…
THOSE ARE NOT MY OWN. Those are my favorite collection. I spent a lot of time browsing dA looking for good tutorials and resources and those are some of my favorite ones.

Still have questions, feel free to ask.


The deed is done. And I am still alive.
I am not sure if I got everything right as cloudstar-wolf wanted. SHould there still be something missing, drop me a line.

Now I am tired. I need a short break, forgive me. I will list some of the tuts that helped me in creating this image later, on commissioners request.

For now, coffeetime.
