I know my way around Photoshop, but new to realistic digital painting...
Any help is appreciated.
Reference used (though I want the hair flowing instead of how it is in the photo):
Photoshop brush used: Oil Medium Flow - with pressure sensitive size and opacity, with Wacom tablet
Thank you so much for any help you may give!
Thank you for helping me realize the under drawing was completely off! It was much worse than I thought, and that made me want to start over. So I found a different reference pic, and now I think the underdrawing is really close to the original! No tracing. However, the painting aspect might be too advanced for me after all, as everyone here has suggested. So I should probably stop and just paint an apple next...
Thanks for being so direct! I appreciate it, I'm here to learn.
