This tutorial will walk you through how to create realistic skin textures in Photoshop. It accompanies a new brush set that I’m releasing for all versions from Photoshop CS3 and onward. It will explain how to paint with the brushes, blend to create beautiful skin textures, as well as how to add pores and freckles to the skin.
This set is really made for digital painters. If you’re not already accustomed to painting portraits in Photoshop, it may not come of much use to you. But for the digital painters out there that use Photoshop for your painting, this set will help you create skin textures and blend colors like never before.
You’ll need to grab my Skin Textures Photoshop Brushes to follow along with this tutorial.
Unlike my other tutorials, this one is done through YouTube. You can watch the video tutorial below. If you can’t see details well enough, make sure you check the settings at the bottom of the video to make sure that you’re watching the HD version (1020p is what you want – the ability to change this will show up once you hit play, in the bottom middle of the video). You can then view it full screen using the bottom rightmost button, and you should be able to see everything clearly.
