Spring, It’s the second in my Four Seasons project.  Last time with Digital Winter , I explored an overview of the digital painting via Photoshop layers.  The focus of Spring is painting the skin.  I’m using Photoshop CS4 and Wacom Intuos 4.  I’m still working on the finish, but here’s essentially, how I’ve  painted the skin thus far.

    Wow… I love doing work in Photoshop, but the skin…I’m scared to even try to tackle it again. I have tried not too successfully. These tips may help though. I’m definitely going to try it out. I’m excited for the next part!

    The fantastic and admirable Elena has posted a great tutorial for creating life-like skin tones using Ps. Check it out (and all her other stuff, it’s amazing)!

  5. This is more like it … with the underlying techniques on display! Not that I photopaint but I do like to see how differently people do things. Thanks Elena … I look forward to part 2 🙂

  6. Absolutely amazing. You are an inspiration.

    This went directly to my “stuff to keep” folder! I am always struck by your beautiful skin tones and colors and mystified as to how you do it. Thanks so much for sharing your talent and insight Elena!
