I remembered to save some WIPS as I went this time! :)

Same process: Lines > Flat colors/tones > Texture > Detail!

Photoshop CS5, lots of texture/grunge brushes.

Here is my time-lapsed video of the process I go through when painting a portrait in Photoshop CS3 with my WACOM tablet, using mainly the airbrush and some customized texture brushes.

Also a nice demonstration of David Nagel's Photoshop Skin texture brushes which I cherish so dearly! They're fantastic for blending tones together while keeping the texture of the skin intact and looking real.

Real time- around 4-5 hours.

These are the Skin Texture brushes I use when I'm painting portraits to capture that epic realism! This is just an example of how awesome and simple they can be, and how much of a difference they can make!

There's many other brushes made by this guy, but I haven't had a chance to get around to trying them all out yet.

Other examples of their use:

THE VERY HORRIBLE TUTORIAL THAT SHOULDN'T BE A TUTORIAL BECAUSE IT SUCKS 8D

Excuse bad handwriting lol;
I hope you can read it as well as my teachers from school xD....

It was first supposed to be eye doodles but pfft I decided to do this. The eye in the top left corner is the only doodle I did before the tutorial happened.

Lmfao. The title was how I paint lips >o<;;;;; Oops.

Here's a mini tutorial of a little trick I discovered when I want to add real looking skin pores to a portrait!

This technique works especially great around the cheeks, nose and brow!

*The brush I used to get the spots was made by `DanLuVisiArt in this brush pack [link] (Texture Brush 400)

NOTE: This technique doesn't work %100 of the time. (Even for me) You just gotta play around with it in different areas, work it in, go over it and work it in some more :XD:

<--- This is an example of it being successful after some toying around (his cheeks, nose and upper lip)

<--- The actual pic/final result in the tutorial.
