Introduction

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.

Great detail! How many layers did you have in photoshop for this illustration?

could you please put an entire tutorial on one page? It is impossible to do it without the color picture in my hand (printed) . 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. Thank you Susan
