This is how I color skin in my anime styled drawings. :iconadachimurdersplz:
I dunno if this'll help anyone but imma upload it anyway.

I don't feel that verbal today so there's probably tons of typos and such.
I know that many had hoped a drawing tutorial not a coloring tutorial, but asdfgh these things take so much time to make, anatomy tutorials even more, so I can't really promise when I'll get one done.

You can't really blend well on Photoshop so that's why Sai was recommended :)

Thank you for this tutorial! I just started to learn how to draw last year, and I have a tablet a tablet i had for two years that I got as a Christmas gift, but never really used it for drawing. I am now learning how to draw digitally, and boy oh boy it's a different ball game. Color scares me but this tutorial put myfears at ease, thank you ^-^

For the tools needed for the shading, what were the configurations?

Do you have the color codes for the skin?

Also, I don't seem to have a marker in Photoshop CC, do you know where I could get one?

I'm curious what you're marker settings are because i find default marker too light for shading but can't get it dark enough without loosing the fade out effect.

Lol I think she meant for people who use graphic tablets not an actual tablet

I know that's what she meant xD

I called myself a "rebel" because I used something other than a tablet. And sadly I still am ;-;
