I do get a few requests for process/walkthroughs; normally I just paint on a single layer, or if I do use a few I constantly flatten and forget to do screencaps along the way. I ended working on GvS in all its 70-something layers of lulz to make this.
I suppose it counts as a tutorial, but I'm really not trying to teach anything. If anything, this ought to be a deterrent! I'm a clumsy painter and I'm sure none of you want to go through such a convoluted process.
As for tools: Just a brush and eraser. No filters, no smudge/blur etc.
This time i practiced drawing some noses, and believe it or not these were only half-referenced! *-* I'm beginning to tweak things in the references i use, so that i can more actively improve and learn realism (i think it's better than just copying your references exactly as they are)
As you can see, i also worked on different ages
I'm not adding any skin texture or details like those at the moment, i'm just focusing on the big picture so that i better focus on learning the principles of rendering realistic stuff (not photorealistic at the moment)
But i'm not really happy with the results yet, gotta keep working to improve!
Also, you can use these as a reference if you can find them helpful somehow! (but credit me if you do so)
And next time i'll try complete faces! *-* Then once i feel comfortable i'm going to try to draw a realistic face from my imagination, to check whether or not these exercises are helping me in achieving my goal
