A whole face :ohnoes: !

This isn't everything but it's hard to explain all the random stuff I do to faces to tweak them...

The way I draw skin isn't very realistic >_>; so bear that in mind - but it is smooth :D because thats what I like.

Hope this helps all of you that have asked for this tutorial.

Geez, that's amazing and very well explained! Exactly what I was looking for :D

Though, I have a few questions: Which kind of brush do you use when drawing details (like in step 6)? Still the same airbrush on 50%?
And I have the problem that when I take a smaller airbrush, the face looks spotty. The edges just aren't smooth anymore. I tried using the smudge tool a bit, but my computer wasn't able to handle that and it froze up :lol:

Thank you. Back then I would have used a small airbrush on a very low opactity - 15-20% and slowly built up the details. I'd go over anything harsh (like a line or shadow) with a larger airbrush on say 10% to soften it.
I'm going to upload a new version of this soon though because I don't draw like this anymore :)

Thanks, I like knowing many different ways to do it anyway, so that's just perfect for me :D

I'll try to work out what I can do. wish me good luck. I hate when i'm nervous. Lol.

Question: Which is the first you paint for the layer? You'll go with face first before hair, eyes, nose and lips? I did was first eyes before face. I got all messed up. I'll start over. >_<! lol

I do things exactly as they are here ^_^ - I draw the nose, eyes and lips on several layers, doing a little bit of each as I go. Then I'll create seperate layers for each to add detail and finish them off.
I always do a bit of general skin shading first before I start filling in the lips and eyes.
Hope that helps :)

this is very useful with what small knowledge I already know in Photoshop. I think it is easier to draw traditionally then scan it and color over it. I just never figured out how to make faces look "realistic" and not with cartoony black lines outlining them.

About step 7. You can just duplicate the layer that's being blurred from the start (CTRL or CMD +J, if you only want to mess with a selection, then lasso it first), then run your filters and fiddle with opacity. That will net you both the blurred layer and the original.

Less effort than blurring it, copying, undoing actions, and pasting, then adjusting opacity. Same result though.
