Nicely put together Ran, I'm going to give this a try (when I get sufficient hobby time....sigh...). Very user-friendly.

Thanks Mike, its perhaps not for the faint hearted but working from a primed headsculpt with thinned layers of Medium-infused washes, very subtle skin-tone blends may be effected.

Very helpful tutorial! By the way, how can I create freckles and other skin imperfections that are still soft-edged? They're so tiny, there's no room to soften and blend the edges. Thanks!

Easy... get an old paint brush - not too large - and snip off the brush-hairs leaving a short stump of about 5 mm height of so (try experimenting), it should look like a barber's shaving brush. Mix a darker shade of flesh paint and blot the paint off the brush tips onto a piece of waste paper. There should be just a small amount of paint on the brush tips. Attempt to create a 'speckle' effect with the whatever paint is on brush tip and you'll have 'freckles'. As usual, experiment first.

Have fun.

Thanks! That's a good idea. I have lots of worn-out brushes. Can't wait to try it out. :thumb
