Or it seems to me. If you glaze over, I'm sorry, but there was no easy way for me to do a tutorial on skin.
All done in photoshop 7. Do try to remember that I'm just sharing my own vantage, you can take it or leave it

Fantastic tutorial! :D

I spent about half a day trying to mix together colors for my characters face and it was complete waste of time and effort. This is unbelievably helpful! Hopefully now I can devote that time to actually painting and not aimlessly circling the same drain. THANKS! :)

This is a really great tutorial and I appreciate you taking the time to make it for us!
