Here's a little walkthrough/tutorial of the way I do things. I hope at least someone will find some help in it.

It's rather text-heavy; I can never shut up. I've probably over-explained everything. But if there's something I've forgotten to explain, or you have any questions, feel free to ask. I don't claim to know everything, but you never know.

Oh, and don't forget that advice about flipping your canvas every so often. I always forget it, which is why I haven't included it in the tutorial. If I had, for instance, I'd have found out that the picture I used was completely lopsided. Oh well. =P

Very nice tutorial. I like the feel of the finished peice. Just one question- what were the exact brushes you used? I know you used Oils, but which ones?

I think I've mentioned it somewhere... Anyway it's Glazing Round (I vary between the three preset sizes mostly). For details that will have a "sharper" look, like the tips of the hair, I used Digital Airbrush with a very small size and slightly higher opacity than the preset.

I don't have either program that you mentioned, but it's still cool. I really liked the portrait piece and it's always neat to see how a piece is done.

Yeah, I think so too. I always read walkthroughs just to see what method they use and if it's better than mine. (Often it is =P )
