More like a walkthrough, as I don't go in depth on how to paint each feature, though I could make those. Hope this is helpful!

Used with this portrait: [link]

I will definitely try this out, even though the free version of SketchThis has no natural brush. Maybe it will work with a lot fine single lines... If it gets good I'll link it here.
Thanks for the tips in advance, I'm pretty sure this will help ;)
