Finally! After months and months & 48 layers later, I'm back! 

I'm a few good months without finishing a job. I was full of things to study, and with no time, patience and inspiration to paint. I've started some works, some portraits, but I have not finished any of those during this time. Well, now I finally got back. I dont know how long I go without posting anything new, but appreciate this portrait while I regain the strength to the next one. :p

In this work, I started with the intention to simulate some of the traditional pastel techniques, but it did not work. I wanted to do something more stylized, less concerned with realism, but guess what, I always end up going the opposite way and refining and detailing to much. Finally I got to give a different finish to the paint and it seemed pretty (these blots). I'm learning to give a utility for the smudge tool. I think we will be great friends.

Hope you like it! If You like it, share with your friends and leave me your feedback!

Pessoa, bom dia! Venho planejando escrever uma apostila sobre os fundamentos da pintura digital. Ela seria disponibilizada em PDF, acompanhada do meu tutorial que vinha sendo vendido aqui (HOW TO PAINT A BEARD) - são 2 videos em FULL HD com instruções + pacotes de brushes. A apostila e o tutorial seriam vendidos juntos, por um preço determinado. Então, a minha dúvida é: qual o valor que vocês pagariam por esse material? Agradeceria se pudessem responder!

I've been planning to write a book about the basics of digital painting. It would be available in PDF, accompanied by my tutorial that was being sold here (HOW TO PAINT A BEARD) - are 2 videos in FULL HD with instructions + pack of brushes. The book and the tutorial would be sold for a certain price. So my question is: what value you would pay for this stuff?
