Got a request for some photos of my process, so here are some lousy ones. Also to note, I'm going to redo the final piece to make it better. Please enjoy!

Awe-ha-some! Been curious for a while now how you did this. Looks like there's some palette knife in the red/orange?
Thanks, Andy. No palette knife, just a 1" flat brush and the right paint consistency on textured paper. The flatter/more parallel you hold the brush to the paper, the more texture.
Love that texture - it's great to see how you acheive it on your works.I'll be dropping buy more often here.
excellent process! MORE !! !
awesome sharing dude! cant wait to see more of your work!-matt at plexitowne seattle
Seeing the process of someones work to me is almost art in it self. Thanks!
You make it look so simple and fast. It is great to see your process.
Awasome process, the result seems digital! Very nice, I think that I should any day catch the brushes.See you!!!
Nice stuff, and I really dig the bidness card
Awesome, I love the colors you use.
Very cool! What kind of paper are you using? Kooks like it's got a nice tooth to it.
Thanks a bunch for commenting, everybody! Your feedback makes me want to post some more process...Steve, I'm using a sheet of 140lb Canson cold press watercolor paper (from a block) cut down from 6" x 9" to 6" x 6". It does have some decent tooth, and doesn't take much to get a good dry brush texture. It's a little thinner than I'd like and can warp a little if you're not careful.I just bought some "real" watercolor paper though, some Fabriano 300lb cold press. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm excited to give it a whirl. Has great feeling tooth and is nice and sturdy.
Thanks for the lowdown on the paper, Drake. I'll have to pick some up and give it a try. The stuff you're been posting is very inspiring. Doesn't the masking tape tear the paper when you pull it up?
No problem! I'd love to see what you come up with. Thanks for the compliment, btw.I haven't had any trouble with the masking tape. I just peel it up carefully and pull at 45 degrees away from the paper. Decent paper helps. Another method is to stick the tape down to your jeans beforehand to remove some of the tack.
WOW!!!i just found your blog and that's just amazing!!thanks to share the backgrounds of samurai jack, and your way of painting...
