    WIP portrait - second attempt at digital painting portraitures

    Hi. This is my first post, and this is my second attempt at portraiture in digital. I'm fairly new to it and everything seems difficult. I posted this on other sites already, but feedback is never too much.

    I feel most difficulty in controlling the brush's opacity, color, size... The software stuff. It overwhelmes me. Any tips?

    Pick one or two brush settings to use, I do one for painting one for drawing. Then don't focus on your tools, focus on your work and how you want it to look.

    Welcome! For your second portrait I'd say this is pretty good. His eye placement on his head seems a bit small though.
    At this point, just keep doing these over and over and building up that mileage- that's how you'll get your muscle memory to pick up on controlling your brush. Also try turning on and off pressure sensitivity, size dynamics, etc. and see what settings you're most comfortable with and stick with that as said above.
    Just keep painting and practicing and you'll slowly get the hang of your software ur using- learning your program is a skill in itself IMO and takes time to learn and get better at
