"steampunk" journey

Well I only got 1 reply from my previous post. Thankyou Martin! But Im going to do it anyway.
Ok so here we go. The first few images are screen shots including the photoshop workspace. After closer examination I realised that you dont really need to see all my layers (over 300 of them so far, and I havent started the background yet) and toolbars and what other apps I have running at the time, so I decided after that, to just save jpegs along the way, and maybe some close-ups.

What Im loving so far about painting in photoshop is the use of masks. As an airbrush artist I was always pulling my hair out placing contact over my painted board cutting it out, removing, or just lifting, then replacing the mask hoping you get it in the exact right spot again, hoping no overspray went onto the sticky part so it doesnt stick back, tearing the mask in the corner because you didnt cut deep enough, or removing the mask and leaving sticky shiny reside behind, or the worse thing of all… tearing the board!!!

None of this happens in photoshop!! Awesome!!
