Why do you do this to me
There’s a reason behind color zones, but James Gurney does a much better job at explaining it than I do. Keep in mind this doesn’t cover lighting, just the local color of skin.
Although there are ‘color palettes’ here, I really wouldn’t recommend using them for your own (as in saving the image and eye dropping them) art, I did this rather quickly so this probably not very accurate. These are just my personal preferences when it comes to color. I don’t have saved palettes; I pick colors depending on the lighting or mood as I am working on a painting. BUT IF YOU WANT TO GO RIGHT AHEAD.
As for texture, lolidunno, I just use a lot of scatter brushes until it sort of looks like skin texture??? I honestly don’t worry about texture though unless it’s like a really close up view of a face or whatever. You can find my brushes here (you’ll need Photoshop CS or higher).
I am flattered that people are seeking advice from me, but keep in mind that I am still learning myself, so I am by no means the best person to be asking. Hope this helps you out though, anon!

inPRNT is generally better unless you’re marking your print prices up super high. At both sites you set the price of your print yourself, but at inPRNT you split the profits of each sale 50/50 every time, whereas at Society6 there’s a minimum base price which is their take, and if you want any money off the sale of the print you have to set the price higher.
So if you have an 8x10 print priced at $15 on both sites your profit from each sale is
good lord, why is society6 so expensive? is it a brand-name thing or do they have “better” quality prints? does anyone know?
There are some things on this damned planet that we all have issues drawing; deer antlers, light-switches, good hentai, and motherfucking baseball caps.
So here’s a fuck-ton of baseball cap references.
I see this mistake EVERYWHERE and it drives me BONKERS. If you’re drawing something really graphic, this rule does not apply. But if the body is anatomically realistic, the hand shouldn’t be a roll of sausages.
Hahahaha oh hey it’s something I do all the time and need to work on!
