Realistic Skin Tutorial by Art-Gem Realistic Skin Tutorial by Art-Gem
Okay, HERE IT IS!! :phew: I did this for :iconblood-and-lust-87:, because she has trouble with skin :) I hope you like it! D:

Okay, like I said in the tutorial, here are some links to tutorials that are useful for hair and eyes:

Eyes: nero749.deviantart.com/art/Pai…

Hair: www.deviantart.com/art/Realism…

Grid-Method: www.wikihow.com/Scale-Drawings…

Also, I used Photoshop Elements to do this, but I'm sure it applies to Corel and others as well :)

So yeah, I hope you like it ^^;

You can fave the finished painting here: art-gem.deviantart.com/art/Rih…

Any questions, just ask :)

What kinda brush you using?  I have tried time and time again to make something even remotely close to this and I think it's the kind of brush I use.  But then again, I haven't really experimented with many brushes still ._.  I only use PhotoShop and AutoDesk, sooo...AD doesn't have many brushes and still learning PS CS6

I just use regular brushes, the kind that come with Photoshop? But I tend to stay around the soft brushes, with varying opacity :meow:

And it always helps to have a skin tone slab/palette/thingy. If I didn't have that then this would not be half as realistic as it is now ^^;

Here's some good skin texture brushes:

I think if you added in the skin texture, this would be by far the best tutorial ever :giggle: I think it looks amazing, and I love how its not just pictures and one word descriptions, but I think what would bring it to life even more that would even make lil Miss Rihanna say WOW would be skin texture : )

Wow, thanks a lot for the comment! Yeah, I would LOOOOVE to add some skin texture but alas, I am no professional T_T and as a result, I do not know how to properly add texture to skin, otherwise I would :hmm:

But again, thank you very much for the positive comment, I'm glad you like it! :D
