I'm trying a painting according your tutorial. Now I find it nerve racking to constantly switch between the photo and the painting. Maybe because I'm new at it, but I do it all the time. Any tips there? (I only got one screen nor can I afford another)

Well, I put the photo NEXT to the painting, which you can do with just one monitor.
Your view of the painting and photo might be quite thin if you have a smaller monitor, but flipping between them is not necessary (or recommended). The first image in the tutorial shows how I put one next to the other pretty nicely.

From all reports, it works pretty well! I don't really know how to blur/blend in PS but others seem to have used this tutorial for PS.
And thank you! :)

Okay I'll try this weekend! While I was reading your comic, it inspired me to start my own so that's what I'm going to be doing for the weekend! I really do love your work :D

I am absolutely DYING to do some digital paintings, but I don't have my own tablet to do it on, or the program to run it. :/ I am determined to try this! I just dint know how the hell I'm gonna get it together.
