Well, I have been doing a lot of "research" on how to blend digital paints and stuff like that. So I am finally sort of getting the hang of it. I got some semi-smooth transitions in there.
I have also been having a LOT of fun making different brushes to play with. I really like the more speckled brushes for painting portraits than the smooth, soft brushes. It gives the skin more texture and more character.
Anyways, hopefully I will end up finishing this at some point. Apparently digital paintings take HOURS. So I am throwing in the towel for tonight.
