Nice tutorial, but i wouldn't use such extreeme colors like pure black to paint, there's too much of it especially on the edges of the stone. The same is for the white highlights.

I agree there, never use pure black or white for shading o_o

Like the best tutorials, it's simple and complex at the same time.

i usually start off with a lighter tone to make the formation of the creases and cracks , then move on to a darker shading and finish with lighting. this is a fine tutorial, however i think you over did it a bit with the lighting ^^;

Personally, You've gone way too quickly into the detail babe. must block in light and dark first before detailing.

this can be done by squinting to help condense values into more manageable segments. 
start adding detail once the base (important) bits are done like the major shadow and light planes.
look up oil painting block in for an idea of what i mean if you don't already.

you are using photoshops tools to your advantage though so indeed this could be looked at as a different approach/ a digital approach.
you are doing it all on one layer though so I'm feeling you may be trying to learn to paint like a painter. 

best of luck :D :iconfacebooklikeplz:
