Brushes

In this stage I added some more basic colors and shapes for the accessories in her hair. I played a bit with the background color and lighting as well. I also added more colors throughout the piece. A little trick I like to use when my brush strokes are looking a little too rough, is to use median to help them blend a little better. At this point I was still deciding if I wanted her to be slighting frowning or slightly smiling (Fig.04).

I was constantly changing her face and adding more depth to the piece. I was also forming more of the basic shapes in her hair and around her face. I like to make custom brushes to achieve different effects in my work, mostly on skin and in my backgrounds. Plus they are just fun to make. In this stage I added more splotches and spots of texture and colors to add more interest; I also blocked out a bit of her eye shapes as well (Fig.05).

Great detail! How many layers did you have in photoshop for this illustration?

could you please put an entire tutorial on one page? It is impossible to do it without the color picture in my hand (printed) . I tried copying each page and pasting it into word. It turned into 32 pages! going back and forth from photoshop would be such a pain , as I said, without seeing the colors of the finished product., I would have to go back and forth a thousand times! Please let me know if you have a "PRINT TUTORIAL" button somewhere. Thank you Susan
