Hey lads. I'm new to this forum but it seems to be exactly what I've been lookin for, I've seen the thread about the fruit and whatnot but I'v eonly read the first page.
I'm currently in the beginning stages of my latest project and I could use a few tips, a tutorial if at all possible on how to do skin. I know that when I look for skin tutorials I usually only get eyes and mouth but I have a severe problem with skin tone and colour.
The belly of my character I did came out looking like some kind of mud or something. My chracter is to be tanned so i wouldn't want it being too bright or too dark. Anything anyone may have on open area skin? like arms, stomach legs, even hands if at all possible.
I can show you one of my images, it's my own hand.
This looks really good I think for what, my 3rd attempt... Unfortunately some might say, I am not using a Wacom Tablet, but a (relatively) cheap Trust Series tablet which cost about €100, but that's not my point.
The thing is, I've been trying to recreate that tone and colour but I can't seem to get it right. I can't re apply a technique I once got right, it's like ym curse, almost everytime I do something it's like I'm starting again.
Any advise will be appreciated here.
Glad to join ConceptArt. Look forward to good times.
