Coloring Skin by achelseabee Coloring Skin by achelseabee
Since I'm being very bad and drawing something random when I should be working on commissions,
I figured I would at least make myself semi-useful and turn it into a tutorial.
No idea if it's a helpful tutorial, but hey, I tried, right? :shrug:
I promise, I'm still working on commissions too.

Can anyone tell who this guy is supposed to be? He's from a movie...:XD:

My guess is now irrelevant since so many have already said who it is. :XD: I'll just say...Joseph Gordon-Levitt = :love:.

Thank you so much! Coloring is always hard for me, but this really helped!

YES. That's the hardest part! I can't tell you how many times I've started coloring some body part or something, liked how it came out, and then can't remember exactly how I colored it. Then the other limbs don't quite match :XD:

TOM!!! 500 Days of Summer :heart:
He's my fave movie character ever! :D I love him! He's like perfect ^_^ He's incredibly kind, romantic, funny, has amazing taste in music and movies, can sing, dance, draw, write and is HOT!!! *sigh* Summer's a bitch!

:iconachelseabee:
achelseabee Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I love him too! Agreed, to everything you said!
Well, except I don't really think Summer's a bitch.
She just...wasn't in the same place in her life at the time Tom was ready for a relationship.
I can understand that. She's an extremely flawed character, which is why I like her.
It's realistic ;p

Arianka Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2011
I'm fine with how she didn't love him and wasn't ready for that kind of relationship. But how she led him on at the wedding, when she was in a serious relationship with a guy she got engaged with like a week or so later was what made me not like her. I do think she's beautiful and has a fun personality, though. I can see how Tom fell for her :)

I'm always too scared to go near the dark colors like any of the grays, but this technique might end up working for me...

achelseabee Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I hope so! Practice it on scrap paper first, and get your technique down before you do it on lines that you like ;p
