I've been tossing around the idea of doing a Photoshop tutorial for a while. I finally put one together this weekend for your viewing pleasure. I've never done one of these before, so sorry if I ramble a bit. I finished the picture before doing the tutorial so I could jump ahead like a cooking segment on a talk show. Still, it's not easy to explain stuff and draw at the same time.
I hope you get something from it. Like I said in the video, there are a half dozen ways to do everything in Photoshop. Some ways are definitley better than mine, but this is how I do it. I had to put this on Vimeo and not my YouTube channel because YouTube wouldn't let me put up a 39 minute video. If you have any questions, suggestions or comments, leave them on my website or @reply me on twitter. Enjoy!
Here's the finished image from the tutorial:
