@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.

Sorry to bother you again. I feel like i'm harassing you :XD:

How many layers do you usually use for the skin? and how do you create your palette?

No it's cool :D

My layers usually go something like this (from top layer to bottom):
-Lines
-Detail/hair/eyes/highlights etc
-Texture
-Base color/tones

Not many layers in all because it's just about building up the tones evenly over the whole picture. I used to have heaps of layers for different shades of tone, but that seemed like a waste time because I found it easier to just paint over any areas I stuffed up.
But if I'm doing something kinda drastic (such as adding a big highlight down the side of the face) I would definitely make a new layer (for fear of really stuffing it up!) :D

If I have a good photo reference, I use the eye dropper tool. But I add in my own highlights/colors to give it a bit more...zazz :XD:
