I get a lot of people asking me how I do my pieces, heres a basic run through hopefully the visual will help.
I usually start with a small concept usuall at 72 dpi, once i have it hammered out I up the resolution to 300 and and away i go.
As for layers and amounts I try to keep it minimal though I do make new layers and merge alot there are sometimes when I just have to keep a layer separate, usual for the purpose of a layer effect of some kind.
Now I'm no master of PS but this is generally how I do my pieces, there may be a faster easier way and if you have any ideas I'm more then interested to hear
Thank you all for the support and keep your eyes peeled for the Lawless comic/Graphic novel I am co writing and Illustrating with my pal
