your studies appear to be the best man, keep on practicing :)
my advice would be to completely abandon the soft brush for a while
and keep opacity 50-100% most of the time
that practice helped me a lot, I think it might help you too
Thanks a bunch for commenting and leaving helpful advice. :) I have a hard time with the hard brushes on opacity 50-100%, because I'm really messy when I paint and I don't leave concise strokes down, and that I'm also terrible at blending my shades with a brush like that, it just takes me forever.
But, regardless, I still tried to do that with this study here, it looks nicer, but it took me 4 hours to do this (there's a lot more that's cropped out, going to submit the whole thing when I'm done). I got hung up on the face, faces are hard.
Anyone else notice how when attempting realistic painting or portraits, that even the slightest thing off can make the face look like someone else??? It's mind-numbingly frustrating for me, but rewarding when I figure out wtf is making it all look so messed up.
