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.
