I've been two hours looking for a good portrait tut. This one was very good. Would like to see more from the author.

A very good overview tutorial on the tones and colors for skin and hair.
Perhaps in your next one, you can add more about actual tools and techniques you use in photoshop to achieve such glorious, smooth results!

Amazing tutorial and pic! I would like to see more tutorials from you, especially one about the technique you use for drawing hair in photoshop because I find that very tricky.

Hi. I really liked this tutorial, it was well done. However, I just have a question. What do you do when faced with darker skin tones? How does shading work when you’re drawing something like a drow elf? Just wondering.

@ Rachel Eden
Can’t say if this is why the original uploader of the tutorial used it, but this is from personal experience working with color.
The turquoise tone was picked for fair skintones because the presence of the cold color strengthens the warmth of the overall skin color, and it gives the skin that ’natural’ look (because in real life, color is rarely completely warm or completely cool).
In order for the turquoise to work, however, three things must be remembered:
1) Generally it works better for very fair, pinkish ’cool’ skintones, the kind you’d find on ’Nordic’ skin.
2) The turquoise should be quite light, not completely saturated ’pure’ turquoise.
3) Use it sparingly and blend it well.
Hope that answers your question.
