Okay, as promised, I have brought you my MASSIVE digital painting and GIMP tutorial. I have spent the last week putting together this monster for you guys. :aww:
I'm sorry its so big, I just had so much I wanted to say. And at the end of the day, you can choose what you read. It is basically just a overview of everything so you can read as little or as much as you want.

I have used my latest digital painting Rapunzel to demonstrate painting the facial features and background.
Additionally I have added a realistic imaginative example of painting features.

Thanks so much, hope it helps.
