My paintings tend to have a lot of detail, but don't let that fool you. The details are only final touches (Fig.11). The most important thing is the drawing and once I have that the next step is to focus on capturing light and establishing strong values. I create a limited palette and stick with only these colors for the duration of the painting (Fig.12 - 15).

Because of my experience painting with mediums such as oil and acrylic, painting digitally comes naturally. If you understand how to paint traditionally then mixing color digitally is done basically the same way, only mixing and blending your colors is much easier and quicker. It is easy for digital painters to get carried away and get near-photo realistic results. But for me, this approach is against all that I love about painting. I enjoy seeing a thumbprint on a painting, or loose hairs that have fallen from a brush becoming a permanent part of the painting. I purposely leave brush marks visible, and if the lighting and values are correct, the painting will still have a very realistic look and quality to it. (Fig.16)

Jason, this is really impressive. I love every part of your painting and the approach you applied. Hope to digitally paint more than you do one day. Regards
