Illustration which was done for 3dtotal's latest book Digital Painting Techniques: Volume 8. I did a tutorial on designing a space pirate character and I explained in detail the whole progress, from sketching to making an illustration with the character. I also explained on how I use Adjustment layers and my painting progress.
