Process of Felix felicis. Although it IS very possible to paint faces with Photoshop, I way prefer using Painter. I usually use Painter first and then bring it into Photoshop for final editing/curves etc.
In Painter, my main tools are: Detail oils brush 5, Just Add Water blender tool, scratchboard rake, scratchboard tool, watercolour, airbrush, square conte, variable oil pastel, palette knife, captured bristle (acrylics), cover pencil and oils (round camelhair and camelhair grainy) and square chalk brick.
For painting faces in particular though, Just Add Water blender, variable oil pastel, palette knife, cover pencil and the oils brushes are my most useful and used.
As you can probably tell, my faces generally end up looking nothing like the sketch. Screenshot number 9 was brought into Photoshop, where I added freckles and depth with overlay mode etc and did some curves/colour balance/brightness-contrast/gaussian blur/unsharp mask work.
