    How do I paint skin to look more authentic?

    I can't tell what's wrong with how I rendered the skin but there's something defnitely off. It doesn't look like skin to me and I don't know why. Any tips?

    Study from life. Values are more important than colors so do that first. There are just too many soft edges, look artists like Rembrandt, Sargent, Repin

    Skin is made up of loads of colours. Look at your hand - there will be blues, greens, oranges etc You also might want to check out the arm's anatomy while doing so.

    Another big thing is not shading each muscle individually. Think of the big form!
