Daenerys - Digital Painting Tutorial by Edniz Daenerys - Digital Painting Tutorial by Edniz
Mother of Dragons by Edniz

First of all, I don't use more than who layers when the image is not complicated, like in this one. There are only two layers here: The background and the figure.


So here are some tips:

I start with a sketch. (seen in the first picture) It is not always clean like this one, and it doesn't really matter. The sketch has been colored flatly. 
Then what I do is to basically start painting over it. (seen in the second, third and fourth pictures)
I kind of redraw the lines using a reddish color and start shading bit by bit.
The light source is important. Look how hair is so white on the right and dark on the left.
What I did in the last stage is playing with the colors by using a layer in soft light mode. I don't know how to explain this one, I need to a complete tutorial for it. But the ones who used that before can understand, so I thought I should mention.

That's great, love the hair's line work, but why do you only use one layer, is it like a habit or you didn't think it needed more than one?

For this one, I didn't think more than one was necessary. Yet, I could say that I have a habit of using as few layers as I can. I don't feel comfortable otherwise.
