Digital Art Wonderland~ (first session!)

I spent the afternoon working from the book "Digital Art Wonderland" 
Then I popped on over to "The graphics fairy" and picked up the steampunk add in the artwork...( I am sure EVERY one and their mother know THAT wonderful blog! ) 
but any way...I had a blast! ... mainly painting with some brushes in photoshop CS5
Thanks for peeking!!
