I got this reference photo from a dvd i ordered to learn how to paint this in watercolor. I used the slupplied line drawing to start with because I am not nearly the artist that some of you are.

So here is the reference and the first few updates:

I know the lessons You're referring to and I think this is a quite challenging and long excercise, considering that watercolors in here cannot follow exactly the same process than real ones. Best wishes! The start is very promising!

Thank you Caesar. I am not even trying to use the watercolor tool here. I have only figured out how to use the airbrush, the eraser, and stencils. I use squares, ovals,and french curves to get clean edges.

Here are a few more steps:

it looks like ppl are viewing this so I will keep going...
one question to anyone willing to respond, should i keep showing each step of the way or should i skip ahead to show more progress with each step.
One of my complaints has always been too few steps are usually shown.

WOW! You're almost there and it's like looking a puzzle being composed with each piece magically fitting and progressively building this pur marvel of transparencies and reflexes ....

Well here it is.
The only tools I used were the airbrush and the eraser.
And lots of stencils of course.
