    The tutorial...

    Tools: (please, look the attachment!)
    - "A"
    To create the reflections in the eyes and the spherical lights of starshower.

    - "B"
    To trace the stencil stars.

    - "C"
    To blend colors painted with tool "G". You can set softness at 44% for a softer blending and the roughness paper option at 0% for this step.

    - "D"
    To blend a thick coat of crayons and oil colors.

    - "E"
    To blend a coat of pencil colors. ("Cottonwool" Effect)
    I have used this tool to create the stars trail and to soften the face's colors.

    - "F"
    To add details.

    - "G"
    To paint the first color coat.

    - "H"
    To mix the first color coat with a cross-haching technic.

    How to create a starshower (mini tutorial) (please, look the attachment!):

    - After painting a background with dark colors (tool "G" and "H"), add some bright colors (tool "C") and blend all together (tool "D" and "E").
    - Paint some spherical lights with tool "A".
    - Create a new level in overlay and paint other bright colors, after that you can merge with the layer below.
    - With the stars stencil and the tool "B" trace some stars. You can soften the stars with a light eraser.
    - Paint the stars trail with tool "C" and blend with tool "E" or softer "C". Erase with straight strokes part of the color in order to create a "trail" effect.
    - Create a new overlay layer and paint some complementary colors (tool "G"), this is a trick to enrich the paint, then modify the opacity of all layers.

    What a joy to look at this.

    Welcome back.

    By the way, I can hear aniime music of a Japanese girl's very high voice in my head when I look at this. Looks like a song interlude.

    Thanks for the tutorial. Great idea for combining stencil with regular hand done.
