I use Photohsop CS4 and a Hanvon "Artmaster" graphic tablet. I only use the two default airbrushes in Photoshop: hard and soft round airbrush.
After receiving so much positive feedback on my eyetutorial, I thought it would be a good idea to also make tutorials about other parts of the face! ^-^ So this is my lips-tutorial! Feel free to download it and use it on your own pictures, but please credit me and link back to this tutorial if you create something with the help of it! And I would also love to see what you created!
I hope this will be helpful for you! Comments, critiques and favs are highly appreciated!
Hi everybody! I've been asked to make some tutorials, so I finally got around to making this one! With this technique you can easily paint pearls, beads, marble balls, eyeballs or whatever round shiny thing you want to paint! You can add more layers for patterns, textures, whatever you want!
If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
Tool: PHOTOSHOP CS4

My other tutorials: Tutorial about shading with greyscale-technique: Tutorial about laying basecolors onto the greyscale: Tutorial about finishing and polishing a painting:
Here's a new tutorial, this time on how to paint braids! Braids are so much fun. So so so so much fun. X3 I hope this helps you enjoy painting them too! Link to the full painting: Photoshop. My three-part tutorial series on how to build grey-scale, how to lay over the colors and how to finalize the piece:
A lot of people ask me how I paint my paintings and collaborations, so I decided to finally make tutorials explaining the steps I take to get to the results you can see in my gallery.
Here's part 1, which shows how to get the shapes down easily. In Part 2 I will explain how to lay down the colors, and in Part 3 I will further explain how to polish and detail the picture.
This technique is actually a variation of really old traditional oilpainting-technique called grisaille, aka greyscale. It's a very useful technique which helps separate the painting-process into more easily controllable steps.
I know I personally can get carried away by all the lovely colors of the world and my painting turns out to be a complete mess unless I think about the shapes first, as a separate step! Then comes the colors, then comes the detailing and polishing.
I'm sorry about certain inconsistency with the screencaps and whatnot, I painted the painting in another city with a mac and then came home and changed to my PC, I used two different versions of photoshop, etc. So getting this together was a bit messy. Hopefully you peeps can still understand something of it! @_@
