Setting the Stage.

Just a little peek into the beginning phase of a digital painting. So far I am just laying in what I think will be an interesting background and setting a light source.

I have been predominately using the brush tool, eyedropper and navigator. This is the basic pattern of things once I get into a good rhythm, along with Ctrl+[ or ] to decrease or increase my brush size, respectively.
