@00:40Mostly the hard round airbrush with the opacity around 30-50%. I hardly touch the Flow option, I just rely on the pen pressure of my tablet :D

@03:35I love this! He has a great face for drawing. I admit I'd love to see you draw Willem Dafoe some time if you haven't.

@02:15After all the basic tones are down, I bring out the Skin Texture Brushes for Photoshop CS, and begin blending and detailing!

@00:51I find working on a dark/shaded background is a lot better than a plain white one. It makes the colors you are working with pop out more!

@00:01I start by blocking in the flat colors and tones. Nothing neat and fancy here. Just trying to isolate some areas to work on later!

Here is my time-lapsed video of the process I go through when painting a portrait in Photoshop CS3 with my WACOM tablet, using mainly the airbrush and some customized texture brushes.

Also a nice demonstration of David Nagel's Photoshop Skin texture brushes which I cherish so dearly! They're fantastic for blending tones together while keeping the texture of the skin intact and looking real.

Real time- around 4-5 hours.

Thanks so much for sharing this! And for every single one of your tutorials! I just started out trying to do realistic painting, but I'm having such a hard time with the brushes and getting the details right. Plus trying to work on just two-three layers is tough work. I'm not used to it. More like, I'm afraid of messing it up and tend to hit SAVE AS x 100. akfgsksjf.

Heya! Sorry for the late reply :D

Please keep at the painting! Hehe.
Any reason why you only work 2-3 layers?

I tend to see a lot of artists just painting on a few layers, so I guess I thought that should be the right way or something. @.@ How many layers do you usually paint with?
