I don't want to be discoured from sharing my hard work because of a few individuals with thieving tendencies, don't ruin this for me. Thanks.Edit III
Dear mother of God, over 1000 faves, thankyou deviantArt!! I think there'll be a part 2 coming soon to this tutorial that was never meant to be a part 1...Edit II
Wow over 600 faves! Thankyou so much I rarely get over 10 faves on my work, I guess deviantArt loves Tutorials.Edit
Loads of people have been really lovely about this tutorial, I'd love to thank everyone individually but that wouldn't be possible so... Thanks for all the support.
If you use the tutorial send me a link and I'll give you any more advice I think you might need.I'd just like to say this is a beginner's tutorial and this is the method for colouring I used, which served me in good stead whilst I learnt about digital painting, there are other, much better tutorials on deviantArt which can show you more advanced methods of painting.
I made this for myself, so that I had some skin swatches to hand. Then I got ahead of myself and well... here it is.
I'm happy to answer questions.
