euclase answered:

There are two ways I do it.

Keep in mind that nobody really taught me, though? Like I didn’t go to school and learn the right way to do it. I just figured out a method, and it might not work for you.

The first way, I paint some colors, smudge them around to where I want them, and then slowly layer in scribbles, smudging and scribbling until I get a rough, natural look.

Like this:

The second way, I paint with a soft brush and slowly add details without any scribbling. I still use the smudge tool to blend some, but I don’t push the paint around nearly as much.

Like this:

The first way is a lot more like drawing with pastels, and the second way is a lot more like actual painting. But they both work pretty well for me. 

Hope that helps!

Is there any chance you could post a closeup up Dean's face from your latest drawing? And maybe tell what brushes you use?

euclase answered:

Sure.

And here’s the reference shot I used for his face:

The brush I use for painting is a soft, round brush with opacity and transfer turned on. The size varies. I use an almost identical brush for blending.

Reference + drawing by request. This probably won’t stay up, but someone asked for one of these, and I promised I’d do it. Not as close as I’d like but not bad! Also this drawing was bugging me all weekend, and now I can see it’s because I made her eyes too big, which I have a habit of doing. Especially with so much contrast (I have a terrible time with big bold shadows like that, which is why I’ve been doing more high contrast drawings this year).
Anyway there you go, requester. Hope it’s educational. <3
