Nude Study

I said there would be nudes, and I do not disappoint. I planned on making this a speed painting video, but I spaced out and forgot to hit record. This was done in Painter 12 and took aprox. 4 hours. I used the Blender Palette Knife, Basic Round initially to lay in colors, A grainy blender although I could have done without it, Scratch-board tool, primarily I used the Real oils soft wet, a smeary flat, and tapered flat. I like how using the combinations of the palette knife, tapered flat and real oils soft wet brushes make this digital painting look like an oil painting. I'm still unsure of how to fully render this piece if you enlarge the picture by clicking on it and look at the details in the face you will notice some geometric shapes. I could not find a suitable way to blend or render better transitions. I tried just using the oil brushes, then i tried using the scratch-board tool, however none of the had the desired effect I was looking for.
