Yeah. I'm prolly not AS classically trained, but I've had a classical painter show me some of the basics. And yeah, this is more than useful, its awesome-ful! (Whatever THAT means :XD: )

(Sorry for the quality- video compression kinda sucks here. Hit the Download button for something a little easier on the eyes :XD:)

I whipped this up within a few hours tonight- I usually skim over the little detailing parts on my videos (otherwise the video will go for aaages lol)

This time I just wanted to focus on showing you the small detailing/texturing of the face, mainly around the eyes.

Part 2 ; Facial Hair.

@01:04Just a quick question, how do you make sure the dark tones you choose don't end up muddy? I usually have to adjust the hue and saturation multiple times in a piece (which is why I don't do them often) because even picking a good saturated color doesn't always work.

@01:04Heya
I sample colors from the original photo at first, but if I need to darken an area (say, under his neck) I darken the color value like this: [link]
I don't bring the color picker straight down into the black. Instead I keep it in the saturated area (if that makes sense). It's like mixing real paint- if you add black; it will make your color muddy, so you would use a rich, umber color (or something like that) :)

Here's another insight into painting skin; [link] Just study photos- and not just looking at them, but color picking and sampling colors from them. You'll be surprised how many colors you can get; sometimes what looks like a green shadow is actually an grey color. It's deceiving like that sometimes lol

@04:14The dot on his eyebrow, is that a freckle or a mole or something? Because I saw you put it there so I'm not sure what it is. :)

@04:14Sorry for the delayed reply! I saw your message in my inbox a while ago then I lost it somehow. Then I had a dream about it last night (NO JOKE!) and had to find it again haha.

I'm pretty sure that was a little mole there. No detail goes untouched! Haha :XD:

Maybe with the next portrait I'll make it focus on just the texturing part. I know it's hard to see the small details with the compression of the video and all... But we'll see :)

I was traditionally trained, but the same basics pretty much apply to digital i.e; starting out with a base color/undercoat and building up over that :D
Glad this could be of some use. :giggle:
