En­sure the skin looks real

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

A common mis­takes I see in stu­dent work is flat, life­less skin­tones. Skin has a lot of sub­tle shifts in colour, es­pe­cially where cap­il­lary ves­sels are near the sur­face. Us­ing an Over­lay layer and a de­sat­u­rated red-pur­ple, I brush in colour around the ears, nose, lips, cheeks, hands, feet, el­bows and knees. Be care­ful not to overdo it though, or your character will look like Ru­dolph.
