These are the Skin Texture brushes I use when I'm painting portraits to capture that epic realism! This is just an example of how awesome and simple they can be, and how much of a difference they can make!

There's many other brushes made by this guy, but I haven't had a chance to get around to trying them all out yet.

Other examples of their use:

Thanks so much for this awesome skin texture tutorial.

Unfortunately, I don't think those brushes are compatible with my CS5. But, this tut really gave a lot of food for thought.

But how do you know which color to put ? for the brush, I mean. That's my main main main problem. :/

I sample a bunch of base colors off the reference/photos, then just add more shadow/highlights and ajust the color as I go :)
