It's the details that I can't seem to produce , it is an art that I don't, I prefer to look at the works of others . I envy you a bit anyway . :p

oh gee thanks! instead of getting a real job, I can get a virus off of your stupid link.
Not even an attempt and complimenting this artist, nOoOoOo!
leave DeviantArt if this is what you are here from.

Watch the tutorial =] 

But everything is done with the soft edge brush and for detailing just make the brush size smaller!

Interesting. I use soft brush, but I make my base layers hard brush. Less cleanup later.
