.PSD magazine approached Mair to create a tutorial for the issue on digital painting. From some sketchbook ideas they selected the Dragon drawing to be developed into a finished digital painting. It was painted in Photoshop with a Wacom Intuos 3, screen captures and annotations were made so they became a step by step guide with tips for digital painting techniques.
The annotated screen captures were sent to the magazine editor and designer who incorporated them into the magazine's layout.
