This is my first video tutorial ever! Do check out this video first, it shows all 3 hours of drawing in less than 3 minutes, and it's quite funny too :-)
If you would like to watch it in real time, download vladstudio_lion_makingof.m4v (256 Mb, 3 hours 12 minutes). Right now, I did not put my voice with commentaries, no time for that (as always! argh). I'll see if I can do it later - however, the video itself should be quite self-explanatory. You will probably want to fast-forward it often, but I decided not to cut the video myself, and publish full version, because everybody will want to skip different parts.
I hope you will find it useful - let me know your opinion in the comments! Thanks.
