cool process, i just really started giving layers a shot recently(god im stubburn), so i'll try this method out. Never thought of doing the two multiply layers as such.

great monkey :)

That monkey face seems didn't use a mirror for this one right?

Cool to see new stuff from you though :] Waist/hip section is maybe a little too anorexic?

davi: layers are good! I like how fast the multiply layers do complicated work for you...especially the shadow layer, you set up your lighting and don't really have to think about hue shift in your shadows, as all the work is done for you by putting a little bit of hue [in this case a blue] in your shadow color.

yoitisi: :< mirror...don't give away my secrets! Yeah, I see what you mean, that is a bit too precariously indented...

Thanks Devin. This is so cool. I really enjoy it when artists show their approach. Well done.

luca: I am glad it's not boring! I am never sure if people actually want to see that kind of stuff :D

thanks for this Tex! it's really interesting to see how you work, I feel like im huffing magic skills off the screen! ;)
it's reassuring to see starting with line is ok, altho its not a substitute for being unable to construct shapes in my case.
more of the same would be awesome, please!
