This is a mini tutorial which I put up on BPN a couple of years ago.  My work has progressed a long way since I made this, but it gives a rough guide to how I work.  There are a number of things which I've refined but like any artistic process, the best thing is to make a start with techniques others are using and then adapt and change them to suit your own idea.


I hope it is interesting to some of you at least.

Great read Twaffle. I normally get textures from Flickr. I might have to check out your source too.

If an experience is amazing enough to be "once in a lifetime," I want to do it every year.
