With this piece I was going for something moody. I wanted a piece that mixed something foreboding with something a little sweet, and I came up with the idea of paring Victorian fashion with a bit of voodoo flavor. After I decided what I wanted to paint, I put a random color layer down because it's easier for me to work on color. A white canvas is a bit harsh to stare at after a while. I drew everything out with a detailed sketch in Photoshop to get my ideas down (Fig.01). Of course, I knew things could change along the way if I found something else that looked or worked better.

I tried copying each page and pasting it into word. It turned into 32 pages! going back and forth from photoshop would be such a pain , as I said, without seeing the colors of the finished product., I would have to go back and forth a thousand times!
Please let me know if you have a "PRINT TUTORIAL" button somewhere.
