Alright. This is a tutorial on how to shade skins.
What I usually do first is make a color pallet. (Optional)
For the example, I am going to use blue.

Next, form a pattern similar to this. Its is two out from the left and four down from the top. Use the lightest color from the pallet.


Then, using the second lightest color, surround the first color.

Repeat that process until you finish the part you are shading.

When you finish the part you are shading, it should look like this.

If this tutorial helped, be sure to give it a diamond!

I think this works if you want a shaded looking skin but it's not really 'realistic' so to say... Thanks anyways, it's a great tutorial!

this is only on the basic principle of pixel-shading. what i would be interested in is achieving the actual 3D look that the best skins have.

This is extremely gradient hair shading that doesn't look that good imo.

This is actually a taken hair shading. Which shouldn't be reuploaded. I shouldn't say anything. 

Nice.

Does this work for hair, or is this for the body?
