    Part 2

    A bit more done on the head, the difficult part is doing the creases around the eyes and blending the fur on the face.

    Thank you Geoff, this one is a challenge, trying to get the stubble and the small creases to blend with the features is hard. I have found instead of using the blur tool which won't go soft enough. I am trying with a very opaque airbrush and going over the top with the skin colour until the lines are just visible.

    Maybe rough up your canvas a bit, use the pencil and get a bit of soft scribbly stuff happening, to get rid of that totally smooth skin. You can always pat it down with the blender on low pressure. Also, I select the shadowed area (with hair and all) and adjust layers> Darken, then blend. You get that 3D effect with all the lovely shadows. His eyes are beautiful! :0)

    Codespeak I have been trying out what you suggested but can't get it right on the iPad, I can do what you suggest in ArtRage 3 on the PC by having a diferent canvas for each layer but not on the ipad, I have tried changing the canvas to rough and the features look great but then the fur looks terrible it gets lost in the grain, I can't seem to get that happy medium. Do you have any other suggestions.

    (Copespeak - Robyn) I don't have an iPad, so am not sure what the differences are. The hair probably can stay the same settings as you have that working for you, so leave that on a separate layer. For the skin I would still raise the roughness levels a little, just to get that random skin texture. For the shading I talked about, drop your feathering down to zero as AR will leave far too little control otherwise. That really works!! Experiment and see what works for you, and leave a duplicate copy underneath turned off so you can revert anything that doesn't suit!
