B/W sketch of the general space. At this point I'm thinking about what kind of  room this is, who's using the space, and what the overall environment is like. Add a multiply layer for the values. Contrast is REALLY important in making the space pop. Merge all layers and convert them to a multiply layer. This is where I figure out the basic color scheme. At this point I correct all perspective errors using the pen tool (which doesn't get in the way and you can paint with it showing) and then I start to paint over EVERYTHING. Addition of patterns using smart shapes-- this is something I learned how to do recently, and here's a more in-depth explanation of how to deal with that: http://happydorid.tumblr.com/post/61656989091 More rendering! Painting over everything! WOOOOO Reflections and light FX are always the last thing I add, and then it's pretty much set. This particular image took a good long time.

Process-post as requested by symphonicrevolution, on how I start and finish interiors. I hope it’s somewhat informative!

Was recently working on-site in a really really nice studio and I was just completely in love with that environment every day of the week.

YOU GET THAT CLIENT, SEIZE THE DAY, GET THAT MEETING D O N E

Collaboration with my sister for Father’s day. I did the background, she did the fat booples. 
I don’t know if he fully understood the work itself but he got to title it “TREEDONISTS”

One of my FAVORITE games, and somehow my first successful attempt at FFXII fanart after like 5 years of trying.
