I thought some might find this interesting. I often get people asking how I get my images to look the way though do. It's one part honest to goodness paint and one part photoshop magic. Believe nothing on the internet, ha! Doing a decent job painting is the long hard part, there is no getting around that. After hours and hours of tedious brushing and detailing with just an iPhone, my garage floor and natural daylight I take a shot then I'm off to Photoshop to glam it up. Without trying to explain the details (go to school for graphic design) are the basic steps summarized visually.
