Wow nice work!  My issue seems to be between steps 3 and 4.  I'm probably using a version of Photoshop/Adobe that is too old to achieve these effects  You are creating the selections using the magic wand, or are you using the "smart" wand tool?  Just curious, thank you for posting this :hug:

I like octopuses and i like the victorian era. Great Connection. And the shapes and the colour are great too.
Now I want an octopus for the homework.

Linework is really smooth, do you zoom in when doing linework?

Very neat! Since I'm not an artist, I normally don't think of these phases so this makes appreciate all the work that goes into a piece.

Wow! I know you're probably really, really busy but is there any chance you could do a tutorial on how you colour? I'm pretty new to Photoshop and trying to get better but finding it pretty tough to grasp at the moment!

I think the step from shade cell coloring to the finished piece is the most interesting one.
Because suddenly it looks like you used watercolor! :D
Do you do this magic with filters?
