    Great tutorial! I did have some problems with the blendingknife. I had a green background, which made it very visible that blending sometimes whipes the paint. I solved this by duplicating the basic face and putting that layer behind it.

    Your tip of making a stencil of the face is just genius

    Wow, John T that was an excellent job. Just pay a little more attention around the shadows of the nose, but you did a really good painting! Are you using a knife to shade or are you adding paint? When it comes to detail, use any tool to get the job done. Pencils are great for that, as well as the airbrush set small. If you use the pencil though, remember to blend it just a tad, or add some shadows over it.

    And yes, electrocute, it is always easier to keep the background on a different layer if you don't want your subject smearing into it. Although sometimes that can be a nice effect.

    I'm glad everyone is getting some use out of this tutorial!
