Tips for Drawing Faces by zephy0 Tips for Drawing Faces by zephy0
My face tutorial with little-known tips on blending, emotion, perspective, and some color tricks. I'm sharing them in hopes that more beautiful art will be created  : ))

I'm not teaching how to use circles/lines/geometry to proportion faces - there are enough resources for that out there.

Some are:
loish 's female face tutorial: tutorial - drawing a female face by loish
tracyjb 's expressions tutorial: Lackadaisy Expressions by tracyjb
Andrew Loomis's "Drawing Head and Hands"

I am so glad you're making tutorials. Out of all the artists I know of, you probably have the best understanding of light and color. Your works are truly inspiring and your tutorials really helpful! Thanks~

A nice tutorial.

About blending in Photoshop:
I recommend the Mixer Brush Tool (can be found where the brush and pencil tool are, icon is a paintbrush with a droplet next to it). That tool does wonders.
Just pick one of these wide chalk-brushes set the brush to scattering (Count 1 or 2, scatter at 30~70% <- experiment witht that) and have fun.
I'd pick that over the SAI-Watertool anyday.

actually manga studio 5 is pretty good for blending, the blending tool does it job, and most the time it it wont lag and theres also watercolour bushes and indian inks which give a nice texture to your painting

You said Photoshop is a bitch to blend in, meanwhile I'm sitting here thinking, "oh? SAI is a bitch to blend in xD"
