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

I'm very nervous making this tutorial since I'm no where as good as those masters who made tutorials online, but since some of my fellow deviants have asked for it I guess I should give it a try. mercy, please

Sorry this tutorial is very simple (so is the image, no much color/composition/depth involved...) and you probably have known everything in it already, I never made any tutorial before and I probably am not better than you...

This is a step-by-step breakdown of the Malthael fanart I just did, it's a pretty sketchy speedpainting which cost me ~2hrs or a bit less. Basically this is how I usually do characters/portraits, just I may spend more time in details for more finished work.

I used 2 brushes for 95+% of this speedpainting, one texture brush and one solid round brush for details.

I work on single layer most of the time but it is more of a personal preference.

Some tips:

1. keep your brush strokes big
2. work on small canvas (i mean zoom out) in early stages
2. combine lasso and brush strokes for a less 'repetitive' look
3. don't go into details before you set up the whole composition
4. keep flipping canvas and checking value

Feel free to leave a comment if you have any question :) and I would much appreciate it if you can give some critiques!
