Edit: May 2016 - I have recently been receiving a lot of attention on this piece and really appreciate the continuing support! I get quite a kick out of reading over this and seeing my 18 year-old sense of humour coming through! I hope to do a new updated tutorial as my style and understanding of painting has changed a bit since this time, but I am happy to answer any questions you guys might have after reading this. Thanks again!
For more art, tips and behind the scenes, you can see more on my pages.

Okay, as promised, I have brought you my MASSIVE digital painting and GIMP tutorial. I have spent the last week putting together this monster for you guys.
I'm sorry its so big, I just had so much I wanted to say. And at the end of the day, you can choose what you read. It is basically just a overview of everything so you can read as little or as much as you want.
I have used my latest digital painting Rapunzel to demonstrate painting the facial features and background.
Additionally I have added a realistic imaginative example of painting features.
If you have any questions, pleaaasse comment, some of my wording may be a little vague or chatty, so I'm happy to clarify, or try to answer other questions.
Thanks so much, hope it helps.
