Photoshop Nose Tutorial

This is a tutorial on how I do my nose on my paintings following my eye tutorial. I have broken it all down so you can see how and in what order I paint the nose. There are many ways in which other artist do this, but I am self taught and I find this way works for me and allows me to achieve the realism that I am after :D

Here are some examples of how this fits into a portrait alongside my original eye, mouth, hair and ear tutorial :happybounce:


Thank you for taking the time to even view this and I hope that this might help some of you a little, and a massive heartfelt thank you for all those who commented on my Eye Tutorial and faved it.

I hope you all like it :) If you have time please leave a comment, fav it or add me to your Watch list :squee:

Step 5-6 (1 is the first color on nose), how do you do that? I feel like there's something missing between 5-6. I never understood how you have just made blocks/lines of colors and then come out with what you did on step 6. Do you have a good tutorial? 
Either way, the sketching is a nice way to start the nose, thanks!!

use the smudge tool with scattering. it's an amazing way of blending.

:D (Big Grin) your tutorials are similar to what I work digitally, so I'm even more help to learn better digital art. Otherwise, draw a pencil and paper for more than 20 years (with a large break of 14 years). Digital art I started 2 and a half years. I love to experiment styles of other artists in a style (I call it Frankenstein style).
which means following the hair and ears ... nice.
although you could draw male and female base body anatomy, how to look realistic.
