adding detail to skin - PS by ceruleanvii adding detail to skin - PS by ceruleanvii
another monster huge tutorial... but I've got screen shots and illustrations so hopefully it won't be too much information overload!

I'm not much of a writer or a graphic designer, so I'm always open for suggestions when it comes to making tutorials. Feel free to let me know if you found this useful/totally incomprehensible/whatever.

edit 12/18/08: Wow, thanks for the DD on this! Texture detailing is just a little thing, but I love doing it, so I'm happy to share what I've learned with you all :)

ha! don't worry one of those fine little hairs (like on this kid's arm and leg)...i AM a writer and a graphic designer...and your tutorials are probably the best i have seen online in quite sometime. simple. easy to understand and more importantly meant for people who take their art seriously. nice job....

and let me take this moment to say how absolutely amazing your skill level. i keep coming back to reference your images over and over again - not for any actual paintings but for my soul! just beautiful talent, cerulean!

thank you, I'm glad you think so! I actually like putting together things like this, organizing my thoughts. I may do some teaching soon so it's nice to know, at least in writing, that I can be coherent :)

And thanks for the comments on my images, much appreciated!
