    1 PART

    This is a partial tutorial for a quick portrait. I have not completed all painting... The tutorial is only a demonstration.


    Tools: Feltpen, Palette Knife Flat, Misterpaint SoftCanvas n.22, Air Brush

    Go!

    Open a reference photo, create a variety of colors and the first sketch of the face. Create small areas of shadow and light (marked with pencil).

    Now... Hide the level with the pencils and use the tool "Palette Knife Flat" To combine colors well together. Great size for large areas, and small size for the parties around the nose and eyes.
    Begin to define the background of the painting.

    Coloring the first details of the lips and eyes.

    to define the outline of the face, moves the color of the cheek with "the palette knife flat" towards the background of the painting. With the feltpen take the background color and redraw the outline of the portrait. With dark colors define the contours of the nose.

    Use the airbrush for strengthen the shadows and the lights

    END.
    I repeat: This is a partial tutorial for a quick portrait. This is my method of working.

    TIPS1: use stickers or textures (adapted for stencils) to create a realistic skin texture. Sometimes just a simple texture to create a special effect.

    TIPS2: you can use "LIQUIFY" filter of photoshop to change the proportions of the drawing.. as in this example.

    IN THIS EXAMPLE I HAVE USED "PHOTOSHOP FLUIDIFY + MY FILTER SWEET DREAM" and some improvement with the feltpen (for small details)



    TIPS3: for a magical effect, I recommend the use of my filter SWEET DREAM (you can download here http://www.artrage.it/plugin.htm)
