MY FIRST DEVIATION!
I've been Photoshopping for years now, but I've only recently started airbrushing/ photorealism. This was done in Photoshop CS and took about 25 hours. WITH A MOUSE! A.K.A. NO TABLET! IT IS POSSIBLE! Although I will get a tablet soon enough. I did use a reference, but this is all original, all brushing, and only a few layers (background, face, eyeball, and hair).
Thanks to everyone who posts tutorials and responds to questions! I will be creating some tutorials in the future, so keep an eye out.
Enjoy and ROLL TIDE!

Thanks! I'm glad you like it enough to comment. I love this piece too, I've improved so much since then, it's great to look back adn see that and realize how far I've progressed. Much of my best photorealism stuff isn't posted yet, but that's about to change, finally. Still, a few of my proudest pieces are here, including this. So Thanks again!

Thanks! What an excellent comment!
You only need a mouse. A tablet makes things easier for me, you add a bit of versatility to the process. But mostly for me, it's because I'm left-handed. I made this piece completely with a mouse, and I can't use a mouse with my left hand, so this was all done with my off hand. It took a long time, and the tablet was a gift. I love it, and they cost less than $100, but they aren't necessary.
If you need help with an avatar, let me know!

Looks pretty good, but I don't think you should have put that texture on the lips that you used on the skin.

Thats really incredible detail, I did at first glance at your thumbnails think yout works were photographs. And even looking at this one properly now I would have guessed it be a heavily manipulated photograh. Very nice work, you obviously have a lot of skill and patience :)

Yes, there's colour in the iris, hence the title! Maybe change the settings on oyur monitor, it should be pretty vibrant.
