Coloring Skin in Photoshop by mree Coloring Skin in Photoshop by mree
Alrightie, Part #2 is here. :) I didn't realize how hard it was to make a skin tutorial until I made this, so if this is very confusing, my apologies...... ;__; This picks off right where the eye tutorial stopped, with the same picture, so if you didn't get a chance to catch the first one, you might want to go to [link] because there are some quick basic discussions there of what the Dodge and Burn tools do, for example. The Dodge/Burn are used sparsely in this skin coloring tutorial, but still, if you don't know what they are, you might want to look at the earlier tutorial. This tutorial also assumes you have a basic understanding of Photoshop and what layers are. Again, this is done in Photoshop CS but you can also use Photoshop 5.0-7.0 with the same tools and effects.

Skin isn't too hard to do with a mouse, so this should work okay for mouse-rs out there. The next tutorial, Coloring Hair, may be difficult for you if you don't have a tablet though. It's still doable, but will definitely take longer.

That's all! I hope you find this somewhat helpful. :heart: (And is it just me, or did she somehow turn out looking a little like Molly Sims? O_o)

I love your tutorials. I've been collecting all the portrait tutorials I could find and this is one of the best! Thank you! 
She turned out really beautiful. And yes, she does look like Molly Sims :)

All three of these are really great, detailed tutorials. :) I really want to try some of your techniques- I'm a traditional artist who knows perfectly well how to shade and create textures and all that jazz, but is completely incompetent at doing any of it digitally. XD So this is very helpful!
