    Never used the painbrush thing before x.x

    During college i had to tackle an 'old for new project'.
    So on my half, i decided to create a portrait using the oil paint/brush tool on art rage for the first time.

    But i've always been an airbrush user so my world was flipped upside down
    Especially with the mouth, and i might have used the air brush here and there, couldn't help it.
    Are their any tips as to using this tool?
    Extra points if you guess who it is

    Hi, Latimer. I checked the original photo and It IS a weird expression indeed. It seems he was at a inner thinking moment, so he's mouth isn't relaxed. You don't have to become tied to one photo when painting a portrait; you can study he's traits in different shoots and then feel free to combine those in your painting. Feel free to experiment; you're the master of your work!

    For this photo in particular, I should note that the corners of Stephen's mouth almost disappeared...but theare're even though. If you add them (with subtle touches), perhaps will help to the realistic effect.
