That's pretty good, if you can add some shading, i am sure it would look better. By the way, your high tech backgrounds are insane. I am trying to put a title for my story, and i am not as good at photoshop as you. Maybe you can do something for me?

By the way, i have a question. Can i post a picture here? You might like it, and it can help you see how a face can be made.

Keep it the spectacular work. -Link7120

For the background, thanks! I think of something.
For my picture: The picture is of Allison, a character in my story that I am writing. I hope for female characters, this may help you.

Nice job!
Looks very sweet.

You might want to make the shading a little less linearly separated. The shading right now follows a line right down his (your?) face.

Also, make it more detailed on at least the eyes, which are generally the focal point of a face.
Spend lots of time zoomed in on them.

yes i noticed, i was trying a new shading tecnique, i should of spent more time blending...still i `ll be fixing stuff liek this soon.. and yes..it is, indeed my face lol

actually in the original size (1000 px X 1000 px more or less ) the detail in the eyes is much more visible..but still you are right again, i`ll fix that too :D

thanks for the tips, always glad to recieve contructive critiscism :)

hey, your improving loads :D

I really like the hair. Just a thing about the skin, its really good and everything, great if your going for that half cell shaded look, but knowing you, you was probably going after realism, so try extending the gradients of your shading out a bit to make the face rounder, to make shading easier i would suggest rotating the face to a verticle possition, then try shading heads at different angles.

wow thanks for the feedback! thanks for the tips on shading..i`ll try my best to improve as much as i can...i`ll work on that :D i might be posting another portrait sooner or later, and i`ll try what you said.

and whoa...i really hope to manage something like that sooner or later.. (although it`s probably gonna be later.. lol)

wondering one thing...hot did you do that mist-glow effect? i`ve seen it in a couple of pics..tried different things..but i never managed to get it right....if you could help me out i`d really appriciate it :)

Me joke, me joke.

lol you know im only doing it to help. I want to share tips and stuff with everyone so they can improve

as for the haze effect...if u drew the head on a separate layer just do a white inner glow and change the settings so its large with lowish opacity....if its all on one layer just make a new layer - select a large soft brush - make white as your colour - draw round the edge of your head - change opacity of this new layer.
