Nice tutorial, but i wouldn't use such extreeme colors like pure black to paint, there's too much of it especially on the edges of the stone. The same is for the white highlights.

I colourpicked and those aren't pure white or black..

#FBF6F4 White
#12110F Black

Either way, they are usually mixed in and dulled.

i usually start off with a lighter tone to make the formation of the creases and cracks , then move on to a darker shading and finish with lighting. this is a fine tutorial, however i think you over did it a bit with the lighting ^^;

Personally, You've gone way too quickly into the detail babe. must block in light and dark first before detailing.

this can be done by squinting to help condense values into more manageable segments. 
start adding detail once the base (important) bits are done like the major shadow and light planes.
look up oil painting block in for an idea of what i mean if you don't already.

you are using photoshops tools to your advantage though so indeed this could be looked at as a different approach/ a digital approach.
you are doing it all on one layer though so I'm feeling you may be trying to learn to paint like a painter. 

best of luck :D :iconfacebooklikeplz:

Looks cool, but it's still extremely hard to follow even such a detailed tutorial for someone who doesn't have much art and drawing skills.

On a side note, could you make a tutorial about how to draw wooden texture? Like, things made of wood (e.g. furniture or walls).

you may have done it all on one layer, I think I would prefer to try it on multiple layers first, then merge them for the last step. still, its nice.

Oh man, I'm in love with your other tutorials and arts but I'm a bit wary of this particular one :S I really wouldn't use dodge and burn to colour as you never have any control over the colour of the lighting and shadows (as you can see here, it's made the light white... light on an object is never pure white and it looks odd). You're going to need as much control over the colour as you can, so dodge and burn is kind of a big no-no for painting ;) 

Also, I think maybe you should have pointed out where the rock interacts with the environment as the shadows just seem to be a darker shade of the midtones (light doesn't work like that). It would alter depending on the weather and time of day, but the shadows would most likely have a blue tint to them (it'll make it pop, trust me ^~^). Although looking at your other works, I reckon you know this because you have a great grasp on colour in your other pieces =)

But yeah, keep up with your awesome work! I'm a "silent" fan haha.
