    Cool. Yeah, it is ok to use another tool for drawing first. But it also depends on each person way of drawing, haha. I personally don't like to use the air brush. I think it is too "digital". In "Darlene" I only used the oil brush at the beginning to make a rough sketch, as you can see in the process pictures. Then the rest was 98% palette knife on the same layer, so in the final piece you can't even see the oil brush strokes. Just used a custom brush to add some rake details.

    With the palette knife, I try to think about the planes of the face, tilting the pen in orther to get he right angles. At the same time paying attention to value and color, proportion as well. I like to use this tool because of the texture and because I think it mixes color better than theoil brush. But it is a matter of taste of course. And I also found out that if you use a less textured canvas (like the default paper one that comes when you open Artrage) you get more bump texture from the pallete kinfe. And you have to tweak a bit with the settings. I used these seetings for this painting:

    Oh, and in order to enhance the bump texture of the painting, when it was finished, I duplicated the layer and changed the bump blending mode to "Add". So you can really see it better.

    Hope this helps. Cheers.
