Hey there, this is my second image tutorial. Enjoy it. (:

At the beginning, start the concept with sketching. I usually like to clean the lines really early. Its like acting under duress. At step 4 add some color to the lines for basic color scheme.
I am drawing the face at first, starting with one eye. I use standard bruhes with less Opacity to add skin color. And yes, the rough strokes looks a little bit messy. Pay attention to the light's direction. The light source is from the left, so we need to put the shadow to the right. It doens't turn out always perfect, but nearly.
I am using the Blend and Smudge Tools to mix the face colors. I often choose the Smooth Blender to blend the skin color. The Blender make the rough strokes smoother. So we can create soft skin tones.

I have added some white spotlights on the armor. Using the brush tool we can easily add large effects on the armor, light reflections. In step 5 and 6 still messy, so we need to use the Smudge Tools again. Don't forget to add stronger light reflections to make it more real. I am drawing crystals shapes on top of the armor. On the top the shapes are smaller and brighter than the ones down on the armor. In this fashion and with a simple crystal pattern we can perform grand reflects indeed.

The hair in the painting totally depends on infinite patience. I don't like to create hair. But if you draw hair - don't miss  small shapes because each shape makes it more structured and realistic. You can use the small brushes to paint them and magnify if you need, otherwise it will be very flat and rather still.
In order to make the image look more extensive, I use a Fog Brush and Filter Blur to create some magic glow or energy between the crystals.

Finally, I am adding a new blue layer and changing it to color dodge mode to adjust the whole image's brightness, which is a easy way to correct color in the spectral direction you desire.

Princess Kurda Portrait by YasminFoster
Boy...
Well, there it is.

Box 1:  Oh God, those little sketches are hideous haha! But they serve their purpose.
Box 2: ... Guess who's a fan of the actor Mads Mikkleson, the fact that two of the films I show stars him (haha!). By the way, Movies, why does Mads Mikkleson keep missing an eye? Valhalla Rising, Casino Royal and the recent Three Musketeers movie... if he's voicing a one-eyed guy in the next Kung Fu Panda movie it'll be ridiculous. ... Perhaps he's fated to play a certain one-eyed villain in a certain book if it ever gets turned into a movie (hint hint Hollywood).
Box 4: That skeleton is here: moonsongstock.deviantart.com/a…
Box 6: That photo reference of myself was for an unused pose for the Ferahgo the Assassin Portrait ( yasminfoster.deviantart.com/ar… ) and the little sculpt is for a future painting.
Box 7: In particular this painting by :iconchichapie: is a good example ( chichapie.deviantart.com/art/R… ) . I wanted to asks permission to use that actual image on this but I should have realised the artist doesn't come onto DeviantArt that much. So rather than wait too long I did a last minute edit.

This is a short tutorial on how you can extract the lineart from an already colored picture. The technique can be used to make a photo into lineart as well, but that takes a lot more cleanup of the lines and a lot more preparations of the picture. I might do a tutorial on that in the future.
The image used in this example is Sweet Kitten, colored by me with lineart from Keevs' Anime Girl Lineart Generator, found here: fav.me/d1gtbym
