how I paint a drunken dwarf by Loopydave how I paint a drunken dwarf by Loopydave
Because absolutely no-one demanded it!!... yes, its a step by step guide to painting your very own drunken dwarf. Or more precisely, a visual record of how I couldn't make up my mind on a decent helmet design.

I'm trying to break down in my head how you paint. Do you paint on top of or under your sketch, just using it as a guide? You don't do any kind of inked lines like comic book artist?

Yes and yes is the short answer.
Longer answer.... if the piece has not inked lines I usually paint on top of my sketch, but tend to keep another (hidden) layer with the original sketch if I want to refer back to it at any stage.
And yes, I do paint 'under inked lines' as well... here's one example loopydave.deviantart.com/art/S… but there are quite a few further back in my dA gallery.
There is no real right or wrong answer in how you paint in photoshop really though... find whatever works best for you I say! :D
Hope that was helpful.... cheers!
