I'm working a lot on it, but this is a project that's beyond the ability of a single person to truly cover - so any help is welcome. I've also just finished writing an Improvement Guide which hopefully gives some useful pointers in that direction...

How many hours does a piece like this take you?

It looks great.

thanks. this one took me about 6 hours all together, just because of all the linework... re-drawing it 3 times.... it take time.

Cool stuff, lady.
Masking off the areas that you want to shade, isn't that an insanely time consuming process? Do you use the pen tool, or lasso I am guessing? That is one aspect of photoshop magic I haven't explored too much (masks, and quickmasks, all I know is that I hate the 'q' quickmask key and it messes me up when I am trying to select my magic wand to clean things up.
Anyways cool tutorial, I like your nice clean line art, that has always been my favorite point, I think it is where a pic really starts to get its identity. But blocking out all your flat colours first is a good idea. I should do that.

anyways
nice tutorial! Much more involved than my attempts, that's for sure

well, i find that blocking out my flat colours helps me a lot with establishing the translation between a b/w lineart and a full-colour image. and i usually use the lasso tool to mask things off. just make my selections and work from the there. and layers. layers are my SAVIOUR. i like masking off because it keeps things clean, manageable and organised.

thanks very much for your comment, dude.

No worries, dudette! The tutorials people post on this site are so wonderfully useful, I can find some trick or process that I might not find through trial and error in photoshop on my own. A time saver at the very least!
Layers save my butt as well. I find I can get past masking (espec. with the subjects that I use, which often have large areas of similar colour or textures) by setting my line art to the top of my layer pile and sent to multiply, and all my corresponding layers beneath set to "normal".
Then I usually work from the background up, and finish off all the little bits of details at the very end. I'll do my own tutorial soon on how I make my chunky metal effects one of these days.
