Exactly what I've been looking for. Thank you so much for this! Skin always gives me trouble, what with depth and shadows and such.

yeah so, thought "Oh I could do this" as a means of how to color skin...

X12 by Sunniesaurus   And this is what happened. I think I made things way more complicated than you probably intended lol.

I think a lot of it is about how compatible your coloring style is with your art style. It looks like you did the technique well, it just doesn't exactly fit your style quite right. I'm not an expert on coloring or anything though, I really suck at it.

Yeah, I fiddled with the skin for the last couple days after this update and I found a way based off this tutorial as a starter on how to get the skin to look right. The newest update of the drawing is on my profile ^^ I think it's turning well.

Its a great tutorial for skins hading, but I think you kinda went overboard with the reddish hues. I know its a style gimmick, but I've honestly never seen a person whose nose is a stronger red colour than their lips. Coupled with the cheeks it gives off an impression that the character looks nauseated, feverish or drunk. Its something I'd pay mind to.

Don`t matter how hard I try, I never get this kind of result in the ending, and I always have to use the pen tool to select everything because it`s damn annoying to erase all that right. I feel so bad. D:

Okay so, PS really eludes me and I always use SAI, and I just don't really understand how people paint in a painterly fashion in PS when you can't seem to manually blend the colors together? You know? Like what were you doing to blend and drag the colors together?

This is lovely btw. ;-;

To blend on Ps you have to have the opactity turned on to pen pressure, paint the two colors you want to blend towards eachother while using the color picker(alt) to select the in between colors until you get the desired colors. There is a site: ctrlpaint.com/ that has many useful tutorials for digital painting, I suggest taking a look and trying out some of the exercises :) (I personally like the tutorials that give you a bit of homework)
