Just a quick exercise to tune up my skin texturing (I was trying to figure out where I went wrong on my last portrait and why I struggled so much haha)
Only time for half a face with Christmas coming up and other things to do! Photoshop CS5
About 15 hours over 2 days (that's quick to me now
Airbrush, Dodge/Burn tool for detail and Sharpen/Blur tool for finishing touches!
Also with the help of Photoshop Skin texture brushes! Crucial tool for something like this!
