Digital Painting Tutorial (Photoshop)

Digital painting tutorial by Faebelina. Wanted to share my current painting process with you guys! Hopefully some can find it useful 🙂 The actual time it took me to make this painting: 45 minutes
Sorry about bumping the mic/being breathy so much in this one!

*BRUSHES USED: The default hard round and soft round brushes that should come with every version of PS.

    Dear Faebellina, thank you for this cool tutorial. I was just wondering, did you used a mouse for this or a Wacom pen?!

    Please help me out with one thing, if I am using mouse instead of pen tab, then how to fill colour in exact area without taking any selection.
    Is there any way to lock the area to be coloured…???

    I totally suck at digital painting. I only can work on hard shadows. I hope your video can help me with this! I like the way you shade the colours!

    When i paint but lift the pen and go over an area i already did, it changes the color to a lighter one. Even when I haven’t changed the color. Any help?
